    If you just received your Nexus 6 from Motorola you probably also just realized that it actually takes a nano sim card. If you are using a Note 4 or Galaxy S5 or any other device that uses a micro card you will need to either go to the Verizon store to get a nano sim from them, or you can actually cut your current sim card as shown in the video above!

    Order a sim adapter from eBay. You can swap back and forth then easily.

    NanoSIM cards are still simply ginormous! I'm waiting for picoSIM cards myself.

    Why can't you just buy a new sim from your carrier? Most phones come with new sim cards in the box unless its an international version.

    It's what I have to do with my phones. The adapters work great. I use a small piece of Scotch tape when using the adapter because it can be a pain if the nano decides to slip out of the tray inside of the phone.

    It becomes quite the pain when it happens. One application of the Scotch tape lasts the life of the phone for me with all of the switching I do. I ended up using one of those tiny cases that the microSDcards come in to store my sim adapter in so debris doesn't make me have to switch out the tape.
