    I'm very confused about the purpose of a SIM card.

    I'm currently using a Verizon android phone which is still under contract. I'd like to buy an off-contract Verizon iPhone 6, and use that as my primary phone instead.

    The last time I purchased an off-contract phone, it didn't come with a SIM card. I just took out the SIM from my existing Verizon android, plugged it into the new off-contract Verizon BlackBerry, and the BlackBerry became my new phone (with same phone number). Easy.

    But I swear I read that an off-contract iPhone comes with a SIM card? And yet, how could that be, if the SIM holds my account information and ordering an off-contract phone doesn't involve my account?

    To complicate things more, the SIM in the Android won't fit the iPhone, so I'd need a smaller SIM card somehow anyway.

    So what do I need to do, in terms of SIM cards, to move my existing mobile phone number from my Verizon Android (micro SIM) to an off-contract Verizon iPhone 6?

    It should have a SIM card. I bought my Verizon 6+ off contract at the Apple Store & there was a SIM card in it already. Same with my son's 6. You can either use the new SIM or use your old one if it happens to fit.
