    Hi, I have an iPhone 5 16gb on Verizon and just bought a used s3 online. I want to use the s3 for a while and see if I like it better/worse than the iPhone. Does anybody know what process I will need to take in order to get my Verizon service working on the s3?

    I know I can go online to enter the new IMEI number of the s3, but what about the sim card? Do I need to remove the sim card from the 5 and if I do will it fit in the s3?

    Thanks for anyone that can help!!

    The sin won't fit in the s3 without an adapter. If you go into a Verizon store though, they'll give you a new card for free and activate everything for you on the spot. If you go the adapter route, they're available on eBay fr a couple bucks. You want nano to micro sim.

    Ok thanks. I will probably just buy an adapter off amazon.
