samsung smart switch

Sorry if this is repetitive but there are two Dave Andersons on here and I can only find posts from the other Dave Anderson and not mine.
I need to know if, when using smart switch, if I have to have a separate sim for the new phone. I have a verizon sim in my old LG3. I am trying to transfer data from it to my, new to me, Samsung S5. Samsung's directions on smart switch does not address that issue anywhere that I can find. Any help would be much appreciated. Right now I am stuck.
