Is it going to be hard to switch back to my old iPhone ..?!? Please help ☹️?

My dad basically switch over to at&t when I told him not too cuz he thought he was gonna save money 🙄 so I came from Verizon iPhone 8 Plus , he still owes money on the phone and the Verizon bill isn’t due till the 24th .

So yesterday I switched over I have the iPhone XR from at&t but they took money out of my dads account cuz he has bad credit now he’s mad now he’s saying he’s gonna return the phone and go back to Verizon. Meaning like I have to use my iPhone 8 Plus again cuz that is Verizon

My phone on here is already backed up and I did NOT delete everything on the phone of my 8 plus.

Do I have to do anything to my 8 plus to work for me ??? The guy said the 8 plus won’t work cuz I have the XR cuz my number is on this one. But now I have to go back to my 8 plus I don’t know what I have to do for that to work ???

I’m completely confused and I don’t know what to do , I need my phone I do work on it and can’t be without it

    All you need is the SIM card. If you still have your SIM card on your iPhone 8+, it shouldn’t be that hard for Verizon to reactivate the card. Or Verizon could just give you a new card. You just need a paper clip or something that’s very thin. Stick it into the hole and give a light push. The sim tray will pop out. Switch the SIM card. Pop the tray back in, wait for the iPhone to recognize the SIM card. Once you see Verizon in the upper left corner on your phone, you’re good to go.
