I have another question for you. Do you happen to know if the LG G2 is using a CSIM or USIM sim card? I heard that the Sprint iPhone 5S/5C uses a CSIM card with a new authentication system that allows LTE devices to be hot swapped between each other without having to contact Sprint.

There are a lot of people interested to see if the LG G2 will be the first Sprint android smartphone to use the CSIM. I for one am very interested if Sprint is moving over to the CSIM authentication system just like what Verizon uses to be able to hot swap between LTE devices.

Here are the sim card identifiers that could be in the inventory system. The first one is what the current 2013 LTE smartphones have been using which is a USIM removable sim card. The second one is what the iPhone 5S/5C should be using which is a CSIM removable sim card.


Is there an identifier on the sim?
I'm back....
