I was wondering if I put my SD card into a different iPhone if it would use my number on that

I could verify it from there?

Nice to meet you, *****!
You want to activate your sim card on a different phone, right?
Also, what mobile carrier do you have a sim card from?

Well it kinda got rid of my other text but basically, I had an iphone 13, it broke and gave me a green screen and then stopped working completely, I got an iPhone 12 yesterday and I can’t log into my account because the only phone number was mine. I can’t get into my iCloud without the number and I can’t log into all the stuff I need to, so that’s why I was wondering if I put my iphone 13 SIM card into a different iPhone if I could at least receive text messages from my old number. My mobile carrier is Verizon


So the sim card is already active, correct?
You must activate your SIM card in the original device before switching it to a new device. If you removed it from another active device and didn't deactivate it, then it's still active. All you need to do is insert it in your new device.
