I was messing around with my iPhone 4s today and I found that there is a Verizon branded SIM card in the SIM card slot of my iPhone. Which would make since if the iPhone 4s was an LTE phone, but it's not.

It is because the iPhone 4s is a world phone! Sprint/Verizon world phones always come with a SIM card, so that roaming works properly and is billed to your account... You can still unlock it and use it across seas with a prepaid SIM from any place you are visiting and pay that way to save money.

The iPhone 4s is one model used by all carriers, that runs both CDMA & GSM. The iPhone 4 had separate models, GSM & CDMA. The iPhones prior were strictly GSM.

I know that the Verizon iPhone has a SIM card slot. What I didn't know was that it had an actual Verizon branded SIM card. Also I just posted a picture about what I was talking about.

I didn't know that. Maybe CDMA carriers place a special kind card in the slot. Said card probably tells the iPhone to use CDMA, not GSM?!

No that can't be it because I've used it without the SIM card and it works fine. It might be just to identify which phone you have since you can't identify them by how the antena looks anymore.

Maybe it's a non-functional filler card?
