Now that few of them got the new phones, how did you activate them?
The box came with instructions. Backup your old phone, turn it off, turn the new one on. Follow the instructions, which will include a number you have to call to activate. I then immediately had to do a software update. It's now restoring from iCloud.
Do we need to replace the sim from old phone or the new SIM will do?
Mine is not working. It shows my my phone number on-screen, then asks me for my pin or SSN (I've tried both), goes through a few seconds of the Activating screen, and then gives me an error...
Anyone else having this problem??
I have solved the issue- ended up being an old zip code from a house my wife lived in 10 years ago before she even had Verizon. Very odd... but I heard others have had the same issue. I would recommend putting in any zip code including employers, homes etc. you have ever been associated with.
I hope this helps!
Mine was solved by activating through the Verizon website. Slightly annoying but it worked.
I may be in the minority, but I backed my phone up Thursday night and followed the instructions in the box. It was the easiest activation I've ever had.
