Transfer New phone to another line BEFORE activation

I have 4 lines on my account, me, husband, son and his girlfriend.  We all have Samsung phones.  I decided to upgrade my husband to the iPhone 11.  Not two seconds out of the box, and not even activated, he does not like it.   

Can I switch it to my son's line?  If so, do I need to get another Sim card for the iPhone to be used on my son's line? 

I ask as the information given on the Order Summary email lists my husband's phone number, his Samsung Device/SIM, tracking number, phone ordered listing husband's number again, then Device/Sim ID ( I assume for the iPhone).
