My niece gave me her iPhone 4 to me after she upgraded to an iPhone 6. Since a number of Cellphone carriers allow you to bring your old cellphones with you when you connect to their carrier, I was wondering if the iPhone 4 fell into that category. I am unable to locate the SIM card on this phone

B,

Did some further checking because my existing iPhone 4s does have a SIM card.
https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/148 ... a+iPhone+4
states the iPhone 4 does not have a SIM card. My niece, who bestowed this iPhone to me used Verizon as her Cell Carrier and when I inserted Verizon into the search criteria, it provided the information above to me :( .

Thanks for the help

There are two iPhone 4 models, one for CDMA carriers which lacks a SIM slot and one for GSM carriers which has a SIM slot.

So its a case of yes... and no. :shock:
