    She'll need to call Verizon and give them the IMEI number on the phone she wants to switch to.

    Where do you find the imei? And you can't just *228 or activate it online?

    If you have a MyVerizon account for your mom's line - all you need to do is go into that, and do a ESN/MEID change there, then dial *228, option 1... or call Customer Service and they'll do the ESN/MEID Swap, and you'll do the *228 after that...

    The MEID is listed in >>Settings >>General >>About... they'll need the MEID... will start with A1 and be 14 characters long.
