Maybe, maybe not. You would have to try it to make sure. All the IMEI numbers for non VZW phones begin with 35 and the VZW phones begin with 99. "Most" peeps have had luck using their existing account sim in the Nexus but it is indeed a crap shoot. Be aware that some VZW features will not work on a play store Nexus. According to VZW it will be a non supported device. That is why you can not use a Nexus play store device without an existing VZW account. Without an existing account, you must have a VZW Nexus 6 with an IMEI number beginning with 99.
