Can I activate a used iphone 5 and keep my unlimited data plan?

I have an iphone 4 with an unlimited data plan. I am wondering if I can buy a used Verizon iphone 5 from ebay, and transfer my existing account with unlimited data to the iphone 5.

All you do is activate that iPhone 5 on your existing account and you can keep the unlimited data, but I would be cautious that it's not reported lost/stolen, even if you do check it the person could still sell it and report it lost/stolen after they ship it and before you receive it.

You raise a good point. Would it help to have the seller sign a statement saying that I purchased it with a photo of us and the phone?
