    This is correct. The ICCID is simply the "serial number" of the sim card you are using. In order to use LTE on the Sprint network you will need to purchase a sim card from one of their stores.

    And what does something like this costs?

    Will the sim card in my Sprint HTC One work in the N5?

    It should - there shouldn't be any reason why it wouldn't.

    Here is some information on the ICC ID Cards from Sprint's website: About Removable UICC Cards

    Cards can be moved to different devices. However, it appears that you have to contact Sprint and have them pair the card with the new device. You can't "pop & swap" as they call it:
    Sharing UICCs between two phones

    UICCs may not be shared between two devices. Each UICC is assigned to a transceiver and paired together. Users may not simply pop a UICC out of one device and use it immediately in another device. This is known as pop and swap. Sprint specifically activates and checks for the paired equipment when connecting to the Sprint network.

    I just ordered two via chat and they were free.

    PS - I'm on Sero-P, so I get pushed to employee services chat.

    Good to know. Hopefully this is the case for me (I'm not on Sero-P) or the cost is minimal.

    I've tried this three times and still had no luck with a knowledgeable rep. First, was that Sprint devices don't need SIM cards. The other two both said that because the device isn't in their system and won't be until the 8th, they are not able to send any out. That S4GRU tactic seems to work for some right away, but you may need some patience to actually get someone with a little knowledge.

    Crazy... Local Sprint and I even asked the guys at Best Buy had no clue... Figure it out when the phone arrives I guess.... Really good way to force me to switch away from Sprint.. I'm out of contract so not having the SIM handy in their store and forcing me to jump through too many hoops could have me testing the waters of other carriers to see what they offer..

    That's my next step. Once the phone arrives I'll go to the sprint store. If they can get me set up I'm going to tell them I'll walk right across the street and buy an ATT Sim. Well see how far that gets me.lololo

    So when you purchase the phone from the Google Play store and have it activated, does Sprint make you sign a new 2-yr agreement?

    They aren't giving you a subsidy, there would be no need for a new contract. That's not to say they wouldn't try though.

    this just worked for me, however the cards are backordered and I won't get one in the mail for at least another week. I'm going to hit a Sprint store when my phone comes in and see what they can do for me.

    Well when I worked at a phone store sim cards usually went for around $20-$30. Not too sure what the going rate now is.

    Just ordered one via chat. I am also on Sero-P. The representative told me he has been told they are on "backorder" until November 8th, when the phone is released on Sprint. Has anyone else been told this?

    I selected overnight shipping, and he said it would be a 2-5 day processing time.

    I was told pretty much the same thing.
