    I'm purchasing a new Verizon iPhone 5 through Apple's website and one of the options is to "Give me a new number". I've never had a smartphone before, thus this seems like the logical choice; however, there doesn't seem to be a place to put in the number that you want.

    Can you not choose your number? What about area codes - what area code does it give you?

    Thanks

    I think it would give you an area code based on your address.

    As for the rest, I don't know how it works.

    No you cant choose your number, itll give you some choices of numbers and you can pick out of them.

    If you go to Verizon directly you will gain more options in the store. You can sometimes pick the last 4 digits if you like.
