    Just went to the Apple store earlier this afternoon and purchased a 5s. Activated fine, but when I viewed my account on the Verizon website, it shows the devices as:

    iPhone 5S Space Gray 32GB (CLNR)

    I'm assuming CLNR stands for Certified Like New Replacement. How can this be for a device that was purchased new at an Apple store?

    You're assuming wrong.
    I never heard of such thing as certified as new replacement term used initials like that.

    CLNR is supposed to be only for refurbished iPhones from Verizon. Most likely a typo on the website.

    Then again, who cares what it says on Verizon website?
