Which SIM card should I use when switching to a new phone?

If I’m already a Verizon customer with a vzw sim in my current phone, what do I do with the SIM card that comes with my new phone? Should I use the new one or the old SIM card?

Zhydoc, I'll be glad to clear up the details regarding which SIM card to use and hope you enjoy your new phone. By default, it's always best to use the new SIM card that's pre-installed with your new phone. This makes the activation process automatic as long as your old phone is powered off. Bearone21 also provides a good point as not all SIM cards work for all model smartphones. Does this provide clarity?
