    Hello

    The funny thing is that I could not wait for the nexus to come out and about 3 weeks prior to its release my sons phone to a crap so had to use my upgrade. Wife demanded her son have a phone, so he got my old Dinc and I picked up the 4s, so here we are again his screen has been cracked for awhile but he is not getting my upgrade... Anyway

    My question is I just bought a used GN and need to get a VZ sim card for it, what is the deal will they want to charge me for it and will they try to mess with my unlimited plan or charge more for LTE? Thanks

    Just go to a Verizon store, they'll activate it and give you a sim free of charge. Assuming you are just transferring a number to it which still has unlimited data then you should not lose it.. but be sure to confirm/remind them of that at least once while you are there just so they don't screw something up, lol.

    That's the way to do it. The other option is to get a new SIM card and activate it later by calling Verizon. You'll need the numbers on the card that you punch the micro-SIM out of. If you do it in store, it's a good idea to call in to tech support a day after and ensure that you still have the unlimited plan. If you time it right, you shouldn't be on hold for more than a minute or two.

    Every time you swap out a phone does VZ charge an activation fee, this means I add my nexus they charge me the fee than 3 months I change to another off contract phone they charge another activation fee each and every time ? Finally going to put the nexus on my number. Thanks guys

    That I do not know for sure, I'm sure they can answer you quicker and more reliably over the phone if you call them rather than wait for an answer here

    I swap my phones around frequently and never had a problem. The only time they charge you activation or upgrade fee is when you buy a new phone.(either at full retail price or discounted upgrade price)

    let the Verizon store employee make some test calls before you leave the store. (both incoming and outgoing calls)

    They haven't charged me an activation when I buy new phones and put on my account. This is when renting and/or just buying the phone outright to keep.
