    An MDN reassign typically circumvents the need to activate with Verizon.

    Did you try just *228.

    I don't think it's works on iPhone 5.

    *228 is something that was for 3G devices where network authentication was done via 3G, but with 4G phones it's handled by the 4G radio and thus the 4G sim card. So in theory just make sure everything is correct on the Verizon website and then to force a MDN re-detect sort of thing, go to the Settings app -> General -> Reset -> and select Reset Network Settings.

    That should do it, although I cannot say I've tested doing that. It's just my hunch.

    *228 is not needed on the iP5. Here is info from Verizon (quoted below).

    This again. *228 is not for (Verizon) LTE devices, iPhone included.

    Though the bit above regarding pulling the SIM card... I don't think that's necessary at all. At worst, a reboot or airplane mode toggle on/off will force the network to renegotiate.
