    I hope im posting in the right section. Please move me or let me know. Now on to the question
    When I sell a 4g phone be it on Ebay or craigslist, do I need to keep my Sim card or do I sell it with it and get a new one from vz?

    Pretty sure a SIM card is specific for your number. Keep it.

    Definitely keep your sim card. If it has been out of phone for more than 24 hours, it will be de-activated by verizon as a safeguard to protect your information on the card. When you need one, they are free at verizon.

    Definitely keep your SIM card, it has all your contacts on it.

    You can also try selling your phone on Swappa, I sold my Droid Incredible there for a good price.

    +1 on swappa. I have sold three devices on there for a fair price. Cheaper than ebay and safer than CL.
