    New Visible Sim Card Question

    I'm a brand new Visible member! So far, so good.
    The question I have is for the sim card. I'm don't know much about how this works, so forgive me for asking what may be simple question.

    Since I really liked the old phone I was using, could I take my brand new sim card I got from Visible (along with the ZTE A7 Prime phone), and use that sim in my old phone and still have Visible service?

    Or, is that sim somehow programmed to only work with the phone that came from Visible?

    Depends on what your old phone is. If it’s compatible you should be able to if the SIM card fits.

    My old phone is an unlocked ZTE Blaze from Metro. I just don't want to put in the sim and have it "fry" or something weird like that is all.

    Both phones take the same size sim.

    enter the phone IMEI number from the ZTE Blaze and see if it's compatible - https://www.visible.com/shop/compatibility

    Unlocked Metro phones won't work on Verizon. I've unlocked my share. It seems the CDMA side doesn't unlock on GSM phones.

    Well, that was easy enough. Visible said my Blaze is "incompatible" with them. So, no use swaping sim cards. Oh well. Thanks everyone!
