Nope can't be done. You can hide so they don't show up in your contact list though.

contacts are not stored on the sim. That sim card is for LTE connectivity only. All of your contacts are stored on google's server on your google account under contacts.

Wrong. You have contacts which can be stored on the phone, cloud or SIM.

Not on VZW. That SIM is only for 4G services. You can have contacts stored on the sdcard.

GSM phones store their contacts on sim cards. Not VZW


What is a SIM card?

A Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card is a small “smartcard” that is inserted into a Verizon Wireless-Certified 4G device. The SIM card contains your subscriber profile, which includes details about your subscribed services and features. The SIM card is your access to the Verizon Wireless 4G network.

Back to top
Is the SIM card capable of storing pictures or documents?

No. The SIM card has very limited storage, typically 128K to 256K. As such, the amount of data stored on the SIM card is minimal, focusing primarily on subscriber or service related information.

Back to top
How do I activate my 4G SIM service?

If you ordered service through verizonwireless.com or Telesales you will need to activate your service before you can use it. To do so, simply call (877) 807-4646 from any phone and follow the prompts to initiate service. Business customers should call (800) 922-0204 to initiate service.

Please be sure to have your receipt handy; you will be asked to confirm your mobile number printed on the receipt.

Back to top
How do I install the SIM card?

If you purchased a 4G SIM card through verizonwireless.com or Telesales you will need to install the 4G SIM card into the Verizon Wireless-certified device. For more information, please refer to the 4G Instructional Video. Instructions are also included in the SIM packaging, or you can also refer to the user guide that came with the device.

If you purchased a 4G SIM card at a Verizon Wireless store, the Sales Representative should have installed the SIM card for you. SIM cards for Business customers should also be pre-installed.

Back to top
Is my 4G SIM card compatible with any existing Verizon Wireless 3G device?

No, 4G SIM cards are only compatible with Verizon Wireless-Certified 4G devices.

Back to top
Is my 4G SIM card compatible with any other provider’s device?

Possibly. Many providers are GSM-based (meaning their service also uses a SIM card), however, Verizon Wireless can only support Verizon Wireless-Certified 4G devices. See a list of Verizon Wireless certified devices.

Back to top
Can I use my Verizon Wireless 4G SIM in more than one device?

Yes; the Verizon Wireless 4G SIM card contains all of your subscriber information, so the SIM card is portable and can be used in any Verizon Wireless-certified 4G device. All usage will be billed to the account associated with the 4G SIM card.

Back to top
How do I secure my 4G SIM card?

The Verizon Wireless 4G SIM card can be secured by enabling the Personal Identification Number (PIN). Enabling the SIM PIN can prevent unauthorized usage of your 4G device. The 4G SIM PIN is disabled by default, but you can create your own PIN via administrative tools available via My Verizon. Please note this functionality is not available for My Business Account or Verizon Enterprise Center customers.

Once created, you will need to enter the PIN before you can use the 4G device. The PIN will be requested on initial power-up and if the SIM card is transferred from one Verizon Wireless-Certified 4G device to another.

Back to top
I have a SIM PIN, but I cannot remember it. What do I do now?

After you have entered the PIN three times unsuccessfully, you will need to obtain the PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) from Verizon Wireless via your online account management tool (My Verizon, My Business Account or Verizon Enterprise Center). Please note that if the PUK is entered incorrectly 10 times, the SIM card will no longer work and must be replaced.

Back to top
What care should be taken in handling the SIM card?

Here are a few tips for handling the SIM card:
Avoid touching the gold contacts as much as possible.
Do not bend the SIM card.
The gold contacts must be aligned correctly to the gold contacts on the device. An angled cut-off notch on the SIM card indicates the orientation of the 4G SIM to the 4G device.
If the SIM card is incorrectly inserted, or an incompatible SIM is inserted, VZAccess Manager may display an error message, such as “SIM Card Failure” or “No SIM card inserted. Please insert SIM card.”
Keep the SIM card clean and dry at all times.
Avoid extreme temperatures and magnetic fields.
Back to top
Can I use my Verizon Wireless 4G SIM card in a 4G LTE device not purchased from Verizon Wireless?

Yes. You may activate any 4G LTE device that has been certified by Verizon Wireless to be compatible with our 4G LTE network, including devices not purchased directly from Verizon Wireless. Simply activate your 4G SIM card on a Verizon Wireless price plan.

There's a setting in the People (contacts) app that you can choose which contacts to display. SIM, Facebook, Google, etc. Uncheck the SIM contacts and it'll hide the Verizon default ones.

By the way, here's a screenshot for you showing that you can indeed have SIM contacts. If I remove my SIM and use another one, the Test Contact is gone.

By the way, you didn't need to post a wall of text which did not mention once if you could or could not save a contact to the SIM.

sorry the intent was to post all of the text to save people from clicking on the link if they didn't want to. You're right it doesn't say you can't save contacts on it. It does explain what the sim is for though. If you have found a way to get it to work then that is good, i'm sure a lot of people would want to know.

Under my settings it says SIM (0). I do have the vzw numbers but they r on the Google server and I have the option to delete them. I used to have them as pictured in the link above. Weird cuz I never did anything to remove them. So I guess it can be done, I just dont know how. Im gonna play with it...

If the OP was asking cause they were selling their phone, wouldn't you want to take the LTE SIM out first. LTE SIM's are linked to your account. Any new owner would need to go to Verizon to get a new SIM card for their account.

Had to get a new SIM card from Verizon on Saturday..for whatever reason I was not getting service they swapped the SIM card and all is good..anyway.. I asked if those contacts could be removed or hidden and the answer was NO..The rep suggested to rename them with something beginining with a "Z" so they would be at the end of the list...however when I got home to try this all the contacts are not able to be editited..so I guess we are stuck with them.

Thanks it works! You can use the free one (not the plus) to get the job done. But, the contacts will come back when you reboot the phone..

Could be. Then again you might not want to delete them because today I've been getting an error message: the process com.android.phone has stopped working - wait or close. Eventually my phone rebooted to a black screen of death. All it showed was my notification bar which I could pull down but there were no active processes. I could access my quick settings (running ICS) but if I click on the settings gear the phone would go black again. Then it rebooted on it's own again but this time everything came back.

The SIM card used in the Rezound is not a "true" SIM card. It may or may not store contact and other information, but it does not allow you to move your phone number to a different phone like "real" SIM cards are meant to do. For the Rezound, it is used simply to enable 4G LTE.

If you switch your Rezound to another number, even one that was also on a Rezound, you will have to get a new SIM card from VZW. If you upgrade to a newer LTE phone (which all use different-sized, "real" SIM cards), VZW will include a new SIM card. Want to return the new device and go back to your Rezound - you will need a new Rezound SIM card from VZW. You cannot even use the old Rezound SIM card since VZW permanently deactivates them whenever there is a switch.

Once you upgrade to a newer phone, like the Incredible 4G, Galaxy S III or DROID RAZR M (just got mine), you can switch between other newer phones that use the "real" SIM card, just by inserting the card.
