I am currently out if the country and unable to purchase an iPhone 6 with my Verizon upgrade. If my wife goes to a Apple Store and purchases phone for me, will it have to be activated at time of purchase? Reason I ask is b/c I don't want it activated and I not be able to use my current iPhone 5 once I get to back to the states like in the airport. I was thinking she can just purchase from Apple Store and I take it to Verizon store when I get back to have it activated and my iPhone to my wife.
