    I assume you are a Verizon Wireless customer.

    VZW's pre-installed “Global SIM” card that is in your Verizon D2G will only work outside the USA provided you have Global Services enabled.

    I see, I was hoping to be able to share data via a SIM card like AT&T / T-Mobile users do without paying extra non-sense fees.

    The Verizon Global SIM's only function is to provide roaming service in GSM networks, as only very, very weird carriers use CDMA, and there aren't many of such weird carriers in the world.
