iPhone with Verizon

If I buy an iPhone using my upgrade from Verizon do I have to activate the new phone at time of purchase?  Want to get my daughter the iPhone 7 since they are on sale right now, but don't want to give it to her yet.

What an amazing gift.  You should not have to activate it until you are ready.  You will start paying for it right away though.

Hi jennylynnnj, 

This sounds like quite an exciting gift! I'm sure your daughter will absolutely lover her new iPhone. WIth that said, to my knowledge we would not have a way to delay activations. However, I would encourage you to visit your local store to speak with a Mobile Sales Associate about your options.

Thank You ... I've tried calling a few stores but there was no one able to take my calls. Busy. I will have to stop in on my way home.
