Content Transfer App, Sim Card Question

I will be switching iPhone to iPhone shortly. My plan was to use the Content Transfer app, as is advised. I had also planned to go into the Verizon Store to have it all activated properly. But, the soonest I can get there would be Wednesday, and I'd like to get the process going sooner if possible. So, I thought I would just activate it from home.

Therefore, I will be needing to switch my SIM card from my old phone to my new phone.

What is the best step by step process to do this....the transfer, the SIM, the activation?
