So I bought a Nexus off of Ebay the other day so that I can replace my POS Droid X2 with a real phone. I know I will need a Sim card, but the closest VZW corporate store is about 75 miles from me. I'll be getting the phone on Thursday, and have to head to TX for work on Thursday as well, so no time to swing in the other direction to the "close" store.
Looking at my route to where I am headed, there is a VZW Corporate store in the town I am going to, but I'd like to get the phone up and running before then instead of spending the drive looking at my nice new (to me) paperweight. If I stopped at a VZW Authorized retailer such as Radio Shack, would they be able to hook me up with a SIM card without jacking my unlimited data? I've read that if you do get a SIM from them you have to pay for it, which I'm okay with as long as everything else would go smoothly.
