Default Swapping MiNi SiM

Quick question. Could you take a mini SIM from and older Moto X, or LTE banded phone that's compatible with Verizon and do the old SIM switch like back in the GSM days

theoretically i don't see why not but the Moto X uses a Nano SIM and i think the only other phone that uses that is an iPhone 5/s/c .

I'm pretty sure I've seen an adapter that you can slot your nano SIM into, thus making it micro SIM.

if you choose to use a SIM adapter NEVER put the adapter in WITHOUT the SIM card in it. otherwise the SIM tray will get stuck and could possibly ruin your SIM tray / SIM slot. YMMV but you've been warned.
