    This may have been true in the past but about a month ago my wife drowned her iPhone4, so we upgraded her son's line (limited) to a iPhone5 in the store. As soon as we got home I got online and put her son's phone back on his line and activated the new iPhone5 to her unlimited line without changing the SIM. Have had no problems with her phone or her account and she still has unlimited. So that one SIM card has now been activated on 2 different accounts/phone numbers.

    The phone is on the same line as the previous SIM no dummy line. I originally used my mother's upgrade for my Gnex and now used my own unused upgrade for the GS4 (at the cost of losing unlimited data).

    The guys at the Verizon store said it's ok and online it states my upgrade date is now May 18, 2015.

    I'm just paranoid because if this doesn't count as an upgrade I'd have to pay full price ~

    Pl go to mobile network and select auto selection as your network mode as your Sim might not have been activated 4G services

    In the meantime call your mobile (Sim ) operator and ask him in what mode the Sim will work

    If you have used the Sim in another old phone and locked to that phone then also this error can come
