    My better half has my Galaxy Nexus and I just ordered her a new Nexus 5 for x-mas. She is on t-mobile post paid plan, do you know if I have to get a new SIM card for LTE to work? Can we just move the SIM card over and expect LTE to function?

    Thanks!

    If you are switching to T-Mobile's $30 plan, you can get the SIM card at Walmart with 1 month service.

    T-Mobile SIM Kit: No-Contract Phones & Plans : Walmart.com

    You can still get the card there and upgrade to a better plan if need be. The $30 month plan only comes with 100 minutes of talk time.

    I would just try the sim from the other phone, update the PRL see what you get. Also I just ordered a new sim from T Mobile's sight for free in case you need to get a new one.

    I've updated two phones that required new SIMs from AT&T. Just walked in the store, asked for one and they gave it to me.

    It's definitely worth the time to go into you're carrier for a new sim, you'll be glad you did. I'm on AT&T with one and it's blazing fast. Noticeably faster than my brothers running on his eighteen month old sim. Needless to say upon seeing the differences he made a beeline to his carrier :)
