    Probably been asked before, but is there a way to get a preactivated sim? Their byod list is pathetically small, but I suspect you don't really NEED one of those devices for the service to work (IF) one can get a sim activated, they could probably put it in many other verizon compatible devices... only thing is, without having access to one of those "approved" devices... I wonder if that is even possible to do?

    Has anyone been able to get a sim activated somehow and put it on an unofficially supported device? If so, how?

    Others have posted that SIM swapping works fine.

    Just get an inexpensive Xfinity phone for the SIM.

    Ok, so this got me to thinking. I bought my phones outright from the local Apple Store. So, does that mean they provided an unlocked phone to begin with and set it to work on ATT?

    Depends on which you bought.

    At least at one time they would sell both unlocked/SIM free and carrier locked.

    If you buy the phone from the Apple Store outright (pay upfront) or use the Apple Upgrade program, the phone will be unlocked -- even if you bought a "carrier" version it is still unlocked, it just comes with a SIM card preinstalled for that carrier. If you buy a phone from Apple but use carrier financing, then the phone should be locked to that carrier.

    Edit: I bought a T-Mobile version from the Apple Store and moved that line to the eSIM, and then I have my Xfinity SIM card installed as a second line.
