I'm going to be in Europe for a couple weeks, so I'm renting phone via the Verizon Global Travel program. Basically they send me a phone that will have connectivity over there, then I call to move my existing number to the new phone. When I get back, I move my number back and send them back the rental phone.
I've done this a few times without issue (though this is the first time since I got a Nexus). But this time the lady on the phone said something which confused me, so I figured I'd ask here. She said she's going to send me a new SIM card so that I can reactivate my Nexus on return. She said that since it's a 4G phone, once it's deactivated for 48 hours I won't be able to reactivate with the existing SIM card -- I'll have to put a new one in.
Does that make any sense at all?
