iPhone 4s to HTC DNA


Jan 19, 2013, 9:42 AM
I have an iPhone 4s on Verizon that I was given as a company phone. I would much rather use an android phone as that is what I am used to having for the past few years. If I buy the HTC DNA at full price from amazon, can I just take the sim out of my 4s and put it in the DNA to switch over to it? Will this work with any of the new Verizon phones that take sim cards?

Good question but I don't have an answer. Verizon's LTE SIMS don't seem to be as user friendly as regular ATT & TMO SIMS.
They deactivate them within 24Hrs, you usually have to call or go to a store to activate one. kind of a pain when you're used to GSM carriers.
I do know if you attempt to activate a 4G phone via MyVerizon, there's an option to have them send you a 4G SIM.

The sim card in the iPhone 4s is a different size and type than the one in the DNA. The DNA takes a micro 4g sim card to activate and use. The sim card in the 4s i believe is standard sized and is only capable of activating the international GSM part of the iPhone. It has no useful purpose here in the states as the iPhone runs off of Verizons CDMA network.
