    If you have a SIM card from your old phone (the unlimited one), just pop it into the S4. If not, you will need a new SIM card.

    What phone is on the unlimited line, and what phone is on the 2gb line? If they both use the same sim card, you should just be able to swap sim cards. It may take a few minutes to register with the network, but just swapping sims should work.

    Now if your Sim cards are different sizes, then you can have the sim cards reprogrammed from the Myacoount sections on the VZW website. Just click switch device and follow the steps. I never knew this was possible until Tuesday night when I got my S4. I was helped by tx_tuff on this thread:

    Not surprising, I had the same problem when I tried to reactivate the 3g phone. I called Verizon and they activated it.

    me too. Other people seem to have had no issue activating the old phone but I could not get it to work. Had to call. Even the rep had a bit of trouble doing it.
