The SIM card is not required for service with Verizon. You need to contact Verizon to activate the new device or you can do it through your online account manager.

Leave the SIM cards alone. Sprint puts one in the Tour and Bold 9650 for international roaming on GSM networks. Neither Sprint nor Verizon use SIM cards for their own service.

Warning: International Roaming is UNGODLY EXPENSIVE unless you call your carrier and add the international roaming option (if they offer it) before you travel.
