    yes you can swap sims as long as the phones are both compatible with the same network

    I am currently doing this. I use my Q10 as my daily driver for the work week, then move my SIM card over to my Z10 on Friday nights for the weekend. Super simple!

    Posted via CB10 on my Verizon Q10 or Z10

    Luckily the Q10 doesn't actually come in cdma, so howermat is correct. As long as the frequency's of both phones match up with verizon you cna put your sim card into each one at will. BUT if your device really was cdma, this wouldn't be possible. 1 because cdma phones don't have SIM cards (some exceptions to this with the old "world phones" which were actually both cdma and gsm) and 2 but directly related to 1, cdma phones register to the network directly, so you would need to call the carrier and have them swap the ESN each time you wanted to switch..

    But again, luckily your Q10 isn't really cdma, so it's not a problem

    Actually my Z10 has a Simcard for the 4GLTE bands I reckon the Q10 does too to access the 4G bands. In the past such things were not needed for CDMA access but now most carriers use it as a unique identifer for the phones.
