Activating Verizon iPhone5
Went into my local Apple Store last night and they had a Verizon iPhone 5 in stock. So I got it for full retail so that I do not need to upgrade my Verizon contract (wanted to keep my unlimited data).
My question is, how do I activate the iPhone 5 on my line? Is there anything special I need to do? Anyone did something similar like me to keep their unlimited data?

If he or she bought the Verizon phone outright and has a plan already with Verizon. He or she should of signed an agreement when they were checking out with the purchase. That's what I did. As soon as I left the store and checked my Verizon account. It was updated with the iPhone 5 information and all I had to do was turn the iPhone 5 on and I was good. I'm assuming he/she bought the Verizon iPhone 5 and not an newly unlocked iPhone 5.

Hi, I did buy the Verizon phone outright and have a plan already with Verizon.
They never asked me for my Verizon phone number at the Apple store, all I had to do was sign that I was getting a Verizon phone and pay.
I will just try activating on the Verizon Wireless site via Switching an Active device. But will the sim card be automatically activated?

I tried switching my device to the iPhone 5 tonight and when I was prompted to enter in the SIM card ID, I got this message:
"The SIM associated with the Id you entered is not compatible with the Device you want to activate, Please contact Customer Service at 800-922-0204 for assistance."
I entered in the ICCID from the box.

The nano sim that was in it was previously tied to the number I used to get the upgrade from, so I'm not sure why yours is already "burned in" to another number. Whatever the case you just need a new sim.
