I have an LG basic phone with slide out keyboard for texting (no data/web). It powers off and is getting annoying. my son has several old smart phones that work fine (just keeps upgrading).
Can I simply pull the chip/card from mine and put into one of his smart phones and use it? Will that work? I don't want data/web.
Verizon basic phones don't have SIM cards, just 4G LTE smartphones. If you were to activate one of your son's old smartphones, you'll have to also pay for a data plan since they are required to activate a smartphone. If you aren't eligible for an upgrade or don't see a basic phone you like on Verizon's web site, you could buy one from ebay or somewhere else. Just ensure that it's Verizon branded and has a clean ESN.
