Question regarding a Verizon 4g phone.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am planning on getting a Motorola Bionic, and I saw that Verizon uses a 4gsim card for that phone. My question is:

Can I swap that sim card to a different company and it will work?? as long as that company offers me 4g right?

I am very confuse since Verizon runs all the phones with cmda and it was impossible to change providers.

I currently have a HTC Droid incredible and the only option I have is to flash it with Metropcs (which is horrible)

Any help will be really appreciate it.

The Sin Card is for the 4g network itself, not the phone. The phones radio runs on CDMA. You cannot change it to another company.

Because of the network that their 4G utilizes, it requires the sim card to access the specific network.
