We defintiely want to make switching equipment as simple as possible, tcox1958. If the sim cards are compatible, you can put your current sim card into the old device to activate it. If not, you can activate services here, http://spr.ly/65878obtf. If a new sim card is needed, you can stop into any Verizon corporate store for a free sim card, http://spr.ly/65888obtA.

Does the phone with the 'other number' have a nano or micro sized active SIM card in it?  If so, just put the micro SIM card in the S5 or get a nano-to-micro SIM card adapter for the S5 and you should be good to go.  Otherwise, you can get a new SIM card free at your local Corporate VzW store or by contacting Customer Service.
