    Default Is the SIM card already installed on VZW shipped 4S

    Today's the big day, I pick up my 4S. Does the 4S that VZW ships come with the SIM card already
    installed or do we have to install it.

    And as for setting up, is it better to go thru iTunes and Cable or iCloud?
    Which is less problematic.

    Thanks all

    Mine didn't come with a loose sim card in the box, not did it come with the sim removal tool that I had seen in some unboxing videos. That leads me to believe that it was preinstalled.

    As far as syncing, do it first with cable and iTunes if you have a lot of data. And from there decide what you want to back up with iCloud as you only have 5gb initial storage online.

    I haven't opened the sim card slot on mine, but if it's anything like my tour or bold, itll have a Vodafone sim installed in it.

    It should be preinstalled, use the cable the first time around with iTunes and a cable and set up iCloud at your discretion

    Your new iPhone 4S will arrive with Verizon's own Micro Sim card pre-installed.

    This is the Micro Sim card that Verizon uses in their 4S.
