Bought iPhone 5 w/ different line, want to activate it on my line

I pre-ordered an iPhone 5 for myself from Apple's website using my fathers #, because he has the upgrade on our family plan. However, I want to activate the phone on my own line, not his. How would I go about doing this? Will I run into fee's/charges for doing it this way? I tried to transfer upgrades on the Verizon site here, but it wouldn't stick. Thanks

you just call verizion and tell them you want to activate it on the line you want to activate it on.. people say do not turn it on before you do that or you will have to go to a verizon store to get a new sim card. (but others have said thats not the case including vzw people on this board)
