    Verizon sim

    Need to get a new Verizon sim for my palm phone where can I get one? Can't get one from online can't order one over the phone, and can't get one in person at the store since the Verizon system thinks this phone doesn't have any sim slot... To make matters even more worse if i was able to at least order a sim only in store they won't give me one unactivated so I'm forced to pay a setup fee for having them do it in store... I've ordered on Amazon and eBay many times but have always gotten expired sims that won't activate.. suggestions on where to get a sim from?

    Um. Odd situation. Pay the setup fee and then call CS and wave it.

    What Palm phone are you talking about? It's been a very long time, and I could be remembering this wrong, but I think there were some old Verizon phones that only had a SIM slot for international roaming on GSM carriers. You could get a Verizon SIM, but it only worked overseas. For domestic use, they only worked on the Verizon CDMA network. If that's the case here, it'd explain why their system doesn't show the phone having a SIM slot, since, for domestic use, it wouldn't use one.

    Which Palm device ? Verizon only introduced the new Palm device this year with a LTE/VOLTE SIM card. Any older model cannot be activated.

    Please post the phone model information and what size SIM card is required. Does Verizon fully support this phone? (I have my doubts since you say that Verizon's system indicates that the phone does not have a SIM slot.) Does the phone support Verizon VoLTE?

    If you have a Verizon-supported phone that takes the same size SIM card, you can always request a new SIM for the supported phone, activate it on the supported phone, and then physically move it to the Palm.

    Yes, the old Verizon SIMs were strictly for GSM roaming. The one I had, although it had a Verizon logo on it it was actually a Vodafone NL SIM (I suppose Verizon had no GSM-compatible billing system so they worked it out that way ...), the phone actually had a netherlands-based number. Verizon's system did some auto-call-forwarding voodoo to forward your US number to the NL one when the SIM showed up overseas GSM roaming, and cancel the call forward when you were back on CDMA.

    Verizon has it so you can move the SIM over and the CDMA side is set up on the 4G phones, but this doesn't work with anything older. If you get the SIM activated and pop it in there, I think it'd work when you're overseas (if they still have the EDGE or UMTS on bands the phone supports...) but no service domestically, not too useful.
