    My current 4g lte smartphone (galaxy s3) is in a plan with Verizon through my relatives.

    Can I buy a new phone on Amazon (like this: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-S5-Verizon-Wireless/dp/B00IZ1XVAC/ref=sr_1_1?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1466898079&sr=1-1&keywords=samsung+galaxy+s5+verizon&refinements=p_72%3A2491149011) and then put the sim card of my S3 into the new phone to start using the new one instead?

    Also, do I need to go through an activation process of some sort? I'm not the account holder and don't have any information on the account.

    Yes, you'll need to go through the activation process with Verizon still. Just buy the phone and call Verizon to activate it. I would first make sure the phone is clean to install with Verizon. Meaning, that Verizon doesn't have a hold on the device because it's lost or stolen.

    Assuming the sim card is the same size, you only need to swap the sim. No reason to contact Verizon for it.
