    I have an unlimited data plan on my current iPhone 6. Another smart phone line was eligible for an upgrade so I upgrade it to the iPhone 6s. When the iPhone 6s arrived today I remove the sim and replaced it with my sim from my iPhone 6 and turn it on. It is now asking me to confirm the phone number for activation. The phone number it gives me is for the line I order the phone on? What do I do now? Do I activate it with the original sim for the other line and then after it is activated switch the sim? I want to keep my unlimited data. Thanks.

    I'm having the same problem. I've done this before with a basic line on my account, but have never run into this issue with 'confirming the phone number'. For your case, if you already have a smartphone with a tiered data plan on the line that you ordered the phone...just activate it on that line and then 'switch devices' on VZW's website.

    My issue is a little more complicated as I DO NOT want to activate this new phone on the basic line's number or I will get stuck with a new data plan on that line which i do not want. Still trying to figure out how best to accomplish this...

    So i was just informed that the 'activation screen' that we've encountered is just an Apple security feature and you can just move past it once you throw your SIM in there.
