    Any possibility of getting this phone early has come and gone as I'm now a day away from traveling to my in-laws over the Christmas weekend. Looks like I'll probably be ordering online next Tuesday, hopefully with overnight delivery. So I'm wondering for anyone coming from an earlier 4G phone, how did they handle your SIM transfer? I mean, here I got the Droid Charge back in June and thought, hey, now I can just throw my SIM into the GNex or whatever my next phone is. But they went and switched to micro-SIM. Do you have to go to the store and have your info transferred? I'm wondering how it will be handled with an online purchase. Also, I wanted to be able to swap back into my Charge until I'm ready to pass it along to another family member, but alas, I can't do that either without a SIM adapter. I suppose next time around, they'll be issuing nano SIM cards and I'll have to deal with this issue again. :p

    I went to the store and they programmed a micro sim for my new Nexus....I gave my CHarge to my wife and I had to buy a new sim card for her and they programed that one for her.

    They actually charged you for a SIM card for her? WTF! I'm surprised they couldn't reprogram yours to her account info.

    VZ cards cannot be reprogramed. At least they are only $2.
