    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.

    Exactly as I said..........your using an "existing sim"in it. Go to the VZW site and look at the status of the phone............

    That was my question all along. Drop in my existing sim and will it work. I don't care about the status on vzw. My plan is 12 years old

    It is a great thing indeed that you have a Nexus 6 that works on VZW. However, VZW did not do a great job in my area for the longest time so I had no existing VZW sim at all. Was on AT&T. Therefore the Nexus 6 had to be a VZW version in order to work with a new sim. I even had a local store manager willing to use his sim to get things going but I refused to have a phone of that cost not being recognized by VZW as a compatible device. Oh well, like you said, if it is OK with you, all is well!
