    Default So I bought a Verizon S3 from Amazon to replace my Razr Maxx - how do I...

    Can I get the S3 to take over for the Razr without having to go to Verizon? How do I do that? Is it as simple as swapping the card from the Maxx to the S3?

    Yes, it *should* be just that simple, as long as they both use the same size SIM cards. If they don't, you'll either need to get a new SIM from a VZW store, or modify your SIM to fix. (The former being the best option).

    I know the S3 uses micro SIM, but some of the VZW LTE phones use mini SIM.

    Are you going to be buying the S3 from Verizon?

    So, the way things normally go for me means a trip to Verizon for a SIM

    Amazon
    Amazon should send a SIM with the phone. If your current SIM doesn't work, just activate the new one they send you.

    That is mostly true, but it does not matter who you buy the Verizon phone from, just that it is a verizon phone.

    As for the op, I used to switch my sim between a few different phones in the same day without going to verizon. Pop it in and you should be good to go.
