Default When exchanging for a new Thunderbolt, do I use the old sim card or the new one?

my new replacement thunderbolt arrives tomorrow (had to exchange it due to several problems with the first 1)... my question is do I keep the old sim card and use it in the new phone or do I use the new sim card that will come with the new phone? The Verizon guy told me when making the call to get a replacement that everything would be new including the sim card...but I thought once you had a sim card, it stayed with you from phone to phone???

I think you would use the same sim card. I may be wrong though but thought thats how it worked.

I was told by Wirefly to send everything back. Also it was noted with Verizon that it was my second TB, the lady whom activated mine asked if I was using a different SIM card. When I said yes, she said good. She said something about how if it was the old one I'd need to order a replacement.

You use the old sim card do not get a replacement. Just get them to associate the new ESN for the new phone to your number.
