    I just ordered my new Turbo 2 directly through Motorola and wanted to see if anyone had insight into how I need to proceed in order to keep my unlimited data plan?

    I have the original Turbo, but would like to make the changeover as soon as my new phone arrives.

    Do I simply transfer the Sim card from the old phone into the new phone, or will the new phone arrive with a Sim card and I merely need to boot it up and activate it somehow?

    Thank you!

    As long as you pay full retail, you should be able to activate the new SIM card that came with it or you can transfer the old one to the new one. Shouldn't matter either way.

    You should be able to make the swap yourself via the "My Verizon" web site. Select your current device, select "change device" and follow the prompts. Enter the new IMEI number and SIM if going to use a new one.

    Badda bing.

    Will the new phone come with an un-activated SIM? Or will I need to swap it out from my current Turbo?

    Is it true V raised the price of the Unlimited plan?
    My last bill for October was the same as it has always been. I think the increase was expected to take place next month.

    Raising the price. It happens November 15, by I think $20 a month.

    I have never ordered a device from Moto with a SIM card. I either used the same one I had or just went to the Verizon store and asked for a new one. I needed a nano SIM for the Pure and they didn't have any issues giving me one.

    Your current SIM card should work just fine. Once you do the swap online, the system will tell you to simply swap the SIM card to your new device.

    So the original Turbo users a nano SIM?

    And if I remove the Sim from the T1 for the purposes of a swap, is the phone then unusable, or can I still run the apps that are on it while connected to a wifi network?

    I'm planning to sell it eventually but wouldn't mind keeping it as a backup for a little while, and having it remain functional for gaming and other things....
