I'm really embarassed to be asking such a noob question, especially since I pride myself in being substantially knowledgeable about technology, but I have a question about how the global aspect of a global phone works on Verizon.
A global phone should have a SIM card, right? I was wondering if it's possible to temporarily swap that SIM card with another SIM card from another network. I am going to Mexico next month, and rather than pay exorbitant fees on my Verizon service for using this phone abroad, I'd rather get a prepaid Telcel SIM card and put it on my brand new Trophy and just use the phone like that. Would something like that work?

Where did you read/hear/see this? Can you please provide a link to official Verizon Wireless documentation? If it really is a once-a-year-only thing, I might as well save it for December when I go to Mexico again because I will be staying longer.
That is an option to switch SIM cards to a different provider's service if the device is capable of doing so. There is only one department that can do that, so I will give you their number so you can just bypass the customer service level: 800-711-8300.
Another option (probably cheaper than getting SIM if you plan on calling the U.S.) would be to just switch to our Mexico Plan for that month. Then the following month just switch your plan back. We have plans that will cover you for voice and texting, but not data. You can call customer service and request that plan and information as well.
There are lots of international options, and I hope we gave you some good ones.
