    I just bought a Bionic at the Swap Meet, but with no sim card. So all I need to do is go into a verizon store, buy me a sim card, and it will be good to go?
    Thanks,

    I've done it a few times and never been charged - at a VZW corporate store. Best Buy won't do it unless they have a phone sale to attach it to, at least that's what my local Best Buy told me when I tried.

    Does this mean I can't go on the VZW website and switch between my Bionic and Droid1... say, if I was going to a theme park and didn't want to risk losing or damaging my Bionic? I kept it thinking I could just switch between them when necessary. :-/
    Thank God I never changed my old Alltel unlimited data plan.

    Every time you switch from your Bionic (or any LTE phone) to a normal 3G phone, the SIM card dies and if you want to activate the LTE phone again, you have to go get another SIM card. I know this from experience... Not as easy as when they were all basic 3G phones!

    Switching between LTE phones will be real easy though.

    yep - which is what they're ultimately going for... a couple of years and they'll be the main ones
