    Yesterday I bought a Verizon Wireless iPhone 4S for my sister as a Christmas present. The device is supposed to be shipped to the store within a few days and will be ready for pickup.

    The plan was to get the device, wrap it, and give it to her on Christmas, but a Verizon Wireless employee told me that I had to activate the phone within 5 days or I would start being charged. Is there any truth to this? If so, I guess I will be giving her the phone early, unfortunately.

    I'm not even sure if they'd let you walk out of the store without activating it first. Call up Verizon again and confirm this.

    Or just cancel your order and order again in mid Dec, you haven't even received it yet so should be simple

    This is what I'd do as well
