The Free Way - Go to, log into your account and go to the "My Phone" page. There is an option to "activate phone". Choose it and then choose "activate equipment". Enter the ESN and it will activate the phone.

The Costly Way - Go into any Verizon Wireless store or call customer service. They charge $20 to do it this way.

Also, you can only switch the same "type" of phones. If you have a smartphone and want to switch to a non-smartphone it won't let you because you'd also have to change your calling plan.
