    Returning my Bionic...Do I return the SIM card or keep it?

    I'm new to this SIM stuff...my guess is I keep the SIM card, which is mine. Is that correct? Or do I put the SIM in the box with the rest of the stuff?

    Might as well just throw it away. If the SIM is not active for a certain period of time, it is deactivated and cannot be used again anyways. Now if you were returning the Bionic and getting a different LTE phone at the same time, then you can reuse the SIM.

    Keep the sim. Verizon is actually not suppose to take the sim back because you can have information stored on it.

    If you do throw out the SIM, cut it up to prevent someone from dumpster diving and stealing data stored on the SIM. Treat it like on old credit card you are disposing of. Better safe than sorry.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    Yep do that for the average user.

    I actually have tools to digitally erase it.
