Model?

The SIM is from my Verizon 6S that was under contract and last year I got the X from the T-Mobile model that I insert the Verizon SIM into and it works.
But now the contract from Verizon is up and I want to change to prepaid plan.

Not sure what will happen.

Probably be the same thing just take the sim out and put the prepaid one in. Oh and I saw something where Verizon has unlimited prepaid for $40 a month.

What's that "Model?" all about in the beginning?

I can’t use my current Verizon sim to transfer from postpaid to prepaid?

I don't think that's possible with any carrier.
In India we keep the sim the same. At least with Jio.

You ask the guy to come home. He charges USD 1.5 for that.

He’ll take your thumb biometrics. No papers no sim no proof of ownership, nothing needed. He leaves in 5 mins. In 20 mins it is done. Just restart your device then.

Costs less than USD 8 in total, half of which is a refundable deposit.

Go to a Verizon store, but you probably need a new SIM. You can't get CDMA on a T-Mobile iPhone, but I'm sure you know that already. It should work on the 98% of Verizon's network that is LTE.

Strictly speaking, T-Mobile iPhone 6 and 6S both support CDMA. As this thread is about the iPhone X though, then yes, no CDMA on that model.

Re: change sim to a prepaid: ATT does do that. Switched my postpaid plan to prepaid at the ATT store and everything was done via their systems. Never pulled/swapped the sim in the phone.

Guessing Verizon probably can do same. So go to Verizon store as others suggest.

But, yeah, the TMo X will probably be the bigger issue.
