[QUOTE=123421342;51436966]Well it is good to be corrected then. I take my statement back, I had no idea verizon started making sense.[/QQUOTE

That's the best thing of heaving the nano SIM. I can switch back to my 5s or Moto X.
Searching for the right device.

When I got my m8 they activated it, which I didn't know they were going to do. So I asked them to activate my old phone again, which they did on my old SIM.

You can use Google wallet just when swapping SIMs.
Verizon said the SIM is for NFC, without the new SIM you won't have NFC even tho your phone is NFC capable. You will lose ISIS capabilities because you will no longer have an NFC SIM.

Impressive that they activated the old SIM. I'm assuming because its a different size that they did that. I've always had one burned. Hopefully their system finally accounts for that.


As for your NFC thing, the new SIM would have to deal with ISIS then, as I used NFC to pay on my M7 and on my GNEX for the last two years. So technically yes you will have NFC and it will work, just ISIS may not work.

When upgrading, I asked them about switching back to my old phone, they told me to call them since it's a different size SIM, but I just used an adaptor and there's no problem
