Here is a question I can't find an answer on. Verizon's LTE network requires a SM card now, so Verizon is moving towards the SIM card model. I have a HTC 8X with a LTE SIM in it.
The question I have, is Verizon's LTE SIM cards like GSM based cards. What I am getting at is, Can I just take a Verizon SIM and remove it from my 8X and move it to another VzW LTE based phone with out having to deal with changing the ESN on line ?
Is Verizon's LTE cards just like GSM based, I just want to swap my card into a different phone to use that phone....for the day or 2...?

My understanding of the CDMA carriers was that they didn't use sims, but I guess Verizon's changing something now? My question now is with the new Lumia 928 being on Verizon, can I buy the phone from them off contract, and drop in a Net 10 or Straight talk sim card?

Edit: It turns out that I might be wrong about that. Take a look at this thread:
unlocked lumia 822 and the apn problem!
Looks like Verizon pulled some shenanigans with the latest update to prevent people from using the 822 on other networks. That may be the case with the 928 as well.
