    Will the sim from a 2014 Moto X fit in the new X? If not, then I guess I have to either go into a store and get a new sim that fits, or modify the one I have now to fit.
    Yes, that is a Nano SIM.

    I notice on some forums people are being told Verizon will not do it when they go to a store. Wondering if those are franchise stores, since they tend to be behind on information that corporate stores have and ironically not as helpful as corporate stores. At least that is the case at the ones where I live.

    Yes, it has a Nano SIM. You'll be all set when the phone arrives.

    From my experiences, it doesn't matter what type of Verizon store you go into...they are all a-holes.

    Just discovered That my Droid maxx (current phone) has a nano Sim. From what I have seen posted, when I get my moto x pure addition I should be able to take the nano out of the Maxx and into the moto x and the activation should be good to go. Moto x pure should work. Talking about Verizon. Can anyone confirm? It took some digging to find out the type of Sim was in the Maxx. Thanks all!

    yes, it'll work. have you not read this last page of this thread? and if it's a nano sim, just pop out, place in Moto X, and you are good to go. If it's a larger sim, you'll have to cut it down or get a new one from VZW

    EDIT: I see your post was merged into this thread. I just wanted to make sure you didn't ask a question that has been answered a bunch of times already

    I knew it would work, my main problem was finding out if my Droid maxx had a nano Sim. I found a site that gives detail phone specs and it list the Maxx as having a nano Sim. Thanks for the reply.
    Now I just need to find out if the moto x is global ready so I can use it when traveling to Canada. Can't seem to get answer to this ☺

    I have posted this earlier but I have been told at a corporate store, online chat, and on the Verizon 800 number that there would be no issue getting and activating a sim on the pure. I have a nano in my Turbo but when I get the Pure I am going to head to a store and request a sim just to see how they react. If they give me a run around I will stand right there in front of them and put the turbo sim in and see what their reaction is. Sounds like fun to me!

    I know the phone is compatible with Verizon and activates great for those that have an active nano sim already. I am asking, for those that do not have an active nano sim (or didn't cut a micro down to size), what was your experience going to Verizon and getting one? We they happy to activate the Moto X pure? Did they give you lip? Did you have to threaten to go to another carrier? How willing was Verizon on activating the moto x?

    The IMEIs have not been added to Verizon's system yet so they will not activate them. You either have to have a Verizon phone with a nano SIM slot, and activate with that phone or already have a SIM.

    I went to 2 corporate stores, and both did not activate the Pure for me. Basically said that because the phone's IMEI is not in their systems, they cannot give me a new nano SIM card. I asked if they could just give me a nano SIM card, and one salesman said 'no' for inventory reasons. They also said that they cannot use the floor model of any phone for the purposes of activating a new nano SIM card. Both seamed to frown and not try to be helpful because its an "unlocked" phone. Fyi, I'm currently a Verizon customer for 15 years. Didn't threaten to leave.

    Take this with a huge grain of salt, but I called Motorola customer service and a manager said that Verizon will have the phone certified in their systems on Monday. If it isn't certified on Monday, then my 'Plan B' is getting a nano SIM card by calling Verizon (I just called and it's on its way), and getting a Nano to Micro SIM adapter, and getting that nano SIM card activated with my current Galaxy phone. Then, I will put that activated nano SIM into the Pure. 'Plan C' is cutting the Micro SIM.

    All you have to do when the nano sim comes in is. Log in to your account online, click change phones. Put in your current phone imei or esn and put in the new sim number. The system doesn't care that you are using the same esn again, it just checks to make sure it's a Verizon phone. Once the service is swapped to the new sim you can put it in to the Pure and you are good to go.

    Just go to the store ask to buy a nano sim, tell them you don't need it activated you just want the sim. Then see my post above on how to activate it.

    Thanks for this info! But doesn't the new nano sim need to be IN the current phone when you click "change phones"? I'm assuming that it does (that's why the store can't activate the new nano SIM), so I was going to purchase a Nano to Micro SIM adapter. If not, then that's great! But then why can't stores just do this?

    Why do you even need to manage it on an account online? Is this an inherent flaw of CDMA? It should just be capable of being hot swapped on the fly, whenever, wherever and to whatever device you desire. GSM SIM cards in the UK are not locked down at all and can be freely swapped between any device that supports the technology. So is it CDMA being severely limited or Verizon being evil dictators?
