Hi

I'm wondering if my 10 year old flip phone, will work with a 4G Sim as I was told that 4G only works with Smartphones.

Sorry if I didn't make that clear, what I meant was, you will be able to use the phone on 2G/3G with a 4G provisioned SIM regardless of wether your phone supports 4G Smiley Happy.

You were told wrong it will work absolutely fine Smiley Happy. There is no such thing really as a 4G SIM, 4G is just something that is provisioned or not based on the plan you are on. 4G SIM really means the plan its on has LTE Provisioned Smiley Happy.

Sim, = identity, encryption etc = nothing to do with what your phone/plan is capable of. Thats controlled on other levels.
