    When I receive my iPhone from UPS tomorrow, what do I do? I've activated other phones on my account from Verizon before, but that requires calling and connecting with a Verizon rep and reading numbers (and getting suckered out of an Unlimited Data plan...[but hey, I got a free upgrade out of it]).

    Is there some other way I can activate my phone without talking to a person. I assume Verizon's lines will take forever to connect to tomorrow, so I'd prefer not to wait.

    If it's anything like the Verizon iPhone 4, everything is done through iTunes.

    No need to call Verizon.

    if u want applecare plus, be sure not to open it and take it to the store, fyi. I was told u can take it to the store up until nov 14, but its always better it show them an unopened 4s versus an opened one.

    if i remember correctly, there is a number to call to activate the phone, but you do not need to speak with a verizon rep. you just call to activate.

    All iPhones activate through iTunes. /end thread

    Edit: Actually forgot that iOS 5 will just activate from the iPhone itself. So either through iTunes or through the iPhone itself:
