    Did not know the unlocked iphone 5 coming out today.

    I ordered verizon $199 iphone 5 from Apple store ONLINE days ago and it is prepared for shipment right now so I cannot cancel the order.

    Can I bring the sealed/unopened iphone 5 to Apple Store and request to pay full price in store? So that my verizon ip5 could be activated with any SIM card in the world...:confused:


    I did not have activated verizon account.

    I just created a verizon account, randomly chose a $80/mo plan in order to order the ip5 from Apple store online. I don't want to activate it with Verizon at all.

    You have 30 days to return your phone. So yes you can return it. However, since you added the plan already and paid subsidized price you will either have to get Apple or Verizon to cancel that plan, and then you will get another phone at full price. ETF with Verizon is $350.

    Dose it depend on that Apple/Verizon store has iphone 5 in stock when I go in?

    I don't want to return it and wait for another 1week to get one.
    Do you mean, I can pay 199+350 to get an unlocked iPhone????:eek:

    They will also charge you for 1 month service. So $199 + $350 +$100. About the same price as paying full. You will be able to get out of contract if the Apple rep knows how, since you never did activate phone. With Verizon, I believe you can cancel contract within first 14 days without penalty.
