    Quick question: Do 4G SIM cards still expire at midnight if not being used?

    Or did I read somewhere that they now remain good for a longer period? I thought I read somewhere that SIM's stayed good for a longer period, but I can't find a recent discussion of this.

    I use a Droid 3, and I'd like to pick up a Droid 4, but I do switch phones often, and it will be a pain to always have to get a new SIM to change back to the Droid 4, or any other 4G phone.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    I'd like to know this too. I remember reading (I think on HoFo) that someone was told by a CSR that unused SIMs stay active for 30 days.

    It's now 365 day expiration.

    Thanks, that's great. Have you done this - taken it out and left it out for more than a day, not switching to a new phone or device?

    Does that also include an iPad after it's been activated and canceled? I haven't activated it yet, I may never activate it, but it would be nice to know what the rules are...
