    Question Verizon iPhone 4s SIM Card Question

    Does the Verizon iPhone 4s use a SIM card? I only have experience with Android phones. A relative is going to sell me his Verizon iPhone 4s because he recently upgraded to an iPhone 5. If the iPhone 4s does use a SIM card, what will I need to do so that I can move my Verizon account onto his old phone? Can I do this myself without having a Verizon associate do it? I have never transferred an existing wireless account onto a used phone before.

    If its like the iPhone 4, it has a ESN number not a sim since its a 3G CDMA phone. I think you might can add it on myverizon and type in the ESN or IMIE.

    Cdma iPhone 4 models do not take sim cards or have sim slots, all iPhone 4s's have a sim slot. If you are gonna use it on Verizon its not going to be an issue.

    You could just call and do a esn change or you may be able to do it online.

    Verizon iPhone 4s SIM Card Question

    The SIM card on the Verizon iPhone 4S is only used to enable international GSM roaming...same with Sprint.

    Just do an online ESN change like some of the other posters have recommended.

    Verizon iPhone 4s SIM Card Question

    You can have Verizon (or Sprint) unlock the gsm portion of the phone. However this unlock will only work for international use/sims, it won't work with AT&T it tmobile inside the us.

    I called Verizon and they unlocked it no problem. Connected the phone to iTunes, did a backup and restore and had the Congratulations your iphone is unlocked message.
