    Has anyone been successful in getting Verizon store or Customer Support to activate the New iPad Air 2 cellular ? Verizon seems confused and clueless when I call my local store. Has anyone had success?

    I have two spare nano SIM cards, so I got it all taken care of over the phone with Verizon.

    This is why you shouldn't give carrier store employees any more information than is absolutely necessary for them to do their jobs.

    Just tell them you have an iPad that will work on their network, and you'd like to get it activated. And yes, you will need a Verizon SIM. Verizon is either unwilling or unable to use Apple SIMs.

    (And apologies to any carrier employees who do have a clue... though let me just say, you're a rare breed, and you probably shouldn't be working in a carrier store.)

    Just walked into the local Verizon store and requested a SIM card. No problems and no charge. I did make sure to go to an actual Verizon store and not a Verizon agent. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    Went in on Monday and had it done no problem. I will say they are unhappy about the whole Apple sim thing though.
