All 4G Verizon phones require a standard SIM card. However, the company also has several other products that are capable of using a higher grade SIM card for added protection.

Verizon sells a large number of mobile devices that allow you to make phone calls, send text and search the Internet from that one device. The company's 4G devices require a standard SIM card, but the card can be upgraded to a higher quality model. The more advanced SIM cards offer several layers of protection for sensitive information such as passwords and credit card numbers entered into the phone or mobile device.
