I am looking to buy an iPhone 7 Plus for my work wife. She doesn't know. She has Verizon and is currently using a Samsung Galaxy (I believe). I have never done this before and have a few questions for those in the know. I am also going to get her a Apple leather case and screen protector. 1) Is it best to get the SIM Free model since I want to surprise her? If so, will that mean she has to go to a Verison store to get added to her account, (to replace the Android) or can it be done over the phone? 2) I was planning on letting her spring for the AppleCare+, which I will recommend she do. Since I am buying the phone, what route will she need to take,(if any) besides calling Apple and having it added in her name? I appreciate the help.
