make sure the phone is turned off. Place the sim card in the sim card slot and try not to touch the metal connectors with your fingers. insert it slowly and make sure its put in with the Verizon logo facing you. Then turn your phone back on.

it should find your service. Do not place anything other than the sim in the sim slot or it will be damaged.
