You should be able to set up your new phone directly from the old one before you swap your SIM card. (Btw the Note 4 has a larger SIM card, most new phones use a nano sim.)
what phone are you setting up?
Making sure you have your information saved is important before switching devices. Do you have access to the Verizon cloud, or google cloud? Also, what information are you specifically interested in saving?
