Nope, the Verizon LTE SIM card is for use in the good ole USA and is specific to the new 4G devices they offer. Just had one replaced on the wife's Thunderbolt to solve a reception problem. They work just like the GSM SIMs and can be placed in any Verizon 4G phone and immediately work.The verizon "SIM" is for world mode, meaning you can roam in most countries (the cost will kill you).
If you are not a world traveler, then the sim does absolutely nothing for you. You could take it out and not see a single difference in service here in the US.
Fully aware of that, but another poster (Europa) stated that they don't use SIM cards, which is what that post was in reference to. To be correct, the statement should be that none of the 3G phones use SIM cards for US transmission. That is why I specifically stated LTE and the phone type that supports it.The OP's question was about a SIM in a blackberry bold- which is not a LTE device - a technology that currently only has a couple of phones that work on it.
Prior to LTE, Verizon had/has phones- like the blackberry bold- that have regular SIM cards in them that were for World Mode, enabling international roaming. That is what the OP has in his phone. It is NOT for LTE, and while it can roam in the US, since it is made to roam on any GSM network, it actually has no bearing on his current Verizon service in the US.
Your assertion that the Verizon LTE SIM works in the US is correct, but it's irrelevant to his question, since his SIM is GSM, and not LTE.
Yep, best bet (if he already owns the AT&T iPhone) is to sell it and take the proceeds and put towards a CDMA Verizon iPhone (preferably off contract since the new one is just around the corner).Thanks, that's good information. I didn't know the Thunderbolt had that option. However, this won't make any difference to the OP. He wants to get an AT&T iPhone 4 and use it with Verizon. The iPhone 4 is not LTE-compatible, so it's still currently impossible to use Verizon on an AT&T iPhone.
We call that the Europa iPhone Cost Reclamation Theory.Yep, best bet (if he already owns the AT&T iPhone) is to sell it and take the proceeds and put towards a CDMA Verizon iPhone (preferably off contract since the new one is just around the corner).
