Can I transfer my sim card or do I have to buy a new one


I think I already know the answer to this, but I want to make sure and I’d like to understand the why a little better.

I have a Moto X2 with the old unlimited data plan and it just died (and I was in need of an upgrade anyway) so I’m getting a Pixel 2. From what I’ve seen in other forum posts I’m going to have to get a new sim card (and new plan) rather than just moving the sim card from one phone to the other. Is that correct and if so why?


Yes you will need a new SIM card as the one in the Moto x2 is CDMA and link to that phone and should stay with that phone
