How can I give my old RW phone to family member after I buy a new phone for use in RW

What is the process for giving my RW phone (Samsung Galaxy A50) to a family member (who has a separate RW account) after I buy a new phone for use in my RW account? I am buying an unlocked Samsung phone (BYOP) and assume I will need to buy an RW SIM card.
