Hi, I just bought my daughter a new Vivid off Ebay, is there a different SIM for LTE service or can she use her Sim from her Focus S ? Thanks.

Thanks, I haven't received the phone yet, but yes she lives in an LTE area, and I didn't realize that the Vivid used a micro Sim, I thought it was a standard size .

The HTC Vivid uses the standard GSM SIM. It does not use a microSIM. For LTE, I have an old SIM that I used for 3G, but I'm still able to get 4G, HSPA, HSPA+, and LTE. The age of the SIM has nothing to do with service. The size of the SIM matters.

If you got a new sim with the phone you don't need a new one for LTE service. However if you kept your old one take a look at the SIM serial number (ICCID) and if it has a 25 about halfway through you should be set. If not you may want to request a replacement from AT&T... they are free in corporate stores.
