Do I have to notify Verizon that I will be in London? I read somewhere that they have to throw a switch(turn on) the overseas capabilities.

Call your support number and explain your circumstances. They should provide you with an unlock code.

The unlock code is necessary to use a SIM other than the Verizon/Vodafone one. They need to provision the device (enable on the account) for you to roam using your number in London. Usually calling 1 week ahead of time is long enough, it does have to be more than 1 day or two.

You should get the international plan to save a few bucks on calls and data charges.
