I happened to be at the Apple Store today to look at the new iPads and asked if there's any stock for Verizon phones, there was one that a person on my account could use so I decided to get it. I get home and open it, and it never activates. I get notified to activate it by calling a number. I do and the person thought I want to activate a new phone, and I thought I was troubleshooting a phone already on my contract. It turns out the phone I bought is not associated with my account and it has no phone number. The Verizon rep looked up my IMEI, and yup, it's not on contract. The rep is telling me make sure to go back to the store and get it figured out, and is making notes on my account for the next rep I talk to (the activating people were out for the day so I'll have to call them tomorrow to activate). I'm not really sure what I should do. I think I'll go to the Apple Store again tomorrow and see what they say.
