The US model uses the Verizon network. I've heard that their phones don't have a removable SIM card so it wouldn't surprise me if the car doesn't use on either. I don't know where I read it but someone changed their cellular modem out, it might have been on the older Nissan LEAF, however, since the US version used the AT&T 2G network which was shut down a year or two ago.

Clearly, my KIA Soul EV will soon sail, I will disassemble the audio unit and see whether or not there is a SIM card.

Definitely report what you find. I hope it has radios for more than just Verizon stations because when the service contract expires I would like to just add it on with my AT&T phone plan. Also, if it has both radios you will more than likely be able to change SIMs and get it to work there. It might be possible to change out the cellular device completely.

In Korea the SIM card is SK Telecom.
In USA the SIM card is Verizon.
Can someone confirm what network is used in Canada.

In Europe existing cars do not have a SIM card.
From next year they will be using Vodafone.

Are you sure? I thought they had added a SIM card to new cars in Canada.

Okay - Not yet in the Soul EV. I guess you have to wait until next year.
