I know that VZW that Visible uses is CDMA.
In the past, CDMA SIMs i know only work in the phone they are programed to and can not be just simply moved to a new phone without a new sim or re-programmed or contact with the provider required.(thus why u have to give them the phones IMEI number)
GSM sim cards, like those from, can be put into any GSM phone and it works.
Is the Visible SIM able to be put into any phone that supports CDMA/GSM with out any extra steps?
