How to activate a verizon iphone

So I’m getting my iPhone 13 Pro Max tomorrow from the Apple Store. It is completely unlocked and I’m thinking now how do I activate it on Verizon. This will replace my iPhone 12 Pro Max that I will be sending back to Apple for trade in.

To clarify I ordered it unlocked and not affiliated with any carrier so it will not have any sort of carrier lock or preloaded carrier software. In hindsight perhaps that was a mistake but I’m sure I can figure this out

I’m guessing the easy way would just be to pull the SIM out of the 12 and put it in the 13.

On the Apple website it mentions scanning a QR code for the eSIM. I like this idea better than trying to mess with the SIM card but I have no clue how I would get that from Verizon. I suspect trying to get them on the phone tomorrow would be close to impossible. 

Any tips or advice?

now i see it

Step 1: Eject SIM card from iPhone 12 Pro.
Step 2: Place that SIM card into iPhone 13 Pro.

That’s literally it. It is by far the fastest and easiest way. Don’t mess with the whole “activation” hassle. Since you have the 12, you already have a 5G SIM card, so you’re all set.

Also, no you don’t have to power the phones off to do this. You can hot-swap at any time. They will work immediately.

Verizon Customer Reviews

Here are a few recent Verizon phone reviews to help you decide if Verison is right for you:

– ” Usually dealing with the call center reps for mobile network carriers is a nightmare. [. ] Well, not with Verizon. I switched from Cricket Wireless which I subscribed to for the last five years over to Verizon about two months ago. [. ] Verizon is over three times as expensive per month but my goodness is it worth it. Not only are the wireless and cellular network services so much faster than any other carrier I have used, but the call center guys are the nicest and most helpful people I’ve ever had to deal with! They broke down my issue for me, walked me thru it step by step even though it was uncomplicated and probably would take most people 2 minutes to get they it he stayed on with my for 42 minutes, taking tons of time with me to help me understand and answered all my stupid questions. He then helped me cut down on some services I was paying for which I didn’t really want or need, and then set up a payment arrangement and waived the payment fee for me since it was going to add more to my balance owed than how much he had cut off my bill in the first place. I love Verizon and I will never switch again no matter how ridiculously expensive it gets. It’s actually worth the money, like for real. :)”

– “I had been with a competing wireless carrier for 10 years. [. ] I finally realized that I had been a fool to stay so long with this other company. I researched my options and chose Verizon to switch to. What a pleasant surprise. After getting my new phone, the Verizon store was eager to help me get set up. The salesperson has called me a few times to be sure I was getting everything I expected from my new phone and carrier. The reception is amazing everywhere. I have not had one issue in three months.”

    Purchased a new iPhone 12 at a Verizon store today but been unable to activate it. The Verizon employee said there is a network wide issue impacting activation of all 5G phones but I can’t find any mention of it anywhere. Can someone confirm? If it’s true is there an ETA on resolution? Has anyone been unable to activate a 5G phone for Verizon lately?

    I upgraded to the LG V60 at the store yesterday. Rep spent over 3 hours on the phone with Tech Support and was unable to activate the new phone due to a widespread technical issue. My old phone was deactivated and they told me they could not reactivate it because the new phone was already in queue. So I have 2 dead phones now.

    When I turn my phone on it says that it could take awhile to activate and then doesn’t activate and the message changes to “Contact your carrier if this issue continues.” It’s now been 24 hours that I can’t activate my new phone and I’m in the same spot place as the other commenter where I now have 2 phone(old phone and new phones) that aren’t activated and are basically just iPod Touches. When I was in the Verizon store yesterday there were 2 other customers there having the same issue as well. This appears to be a pretty widespread issue so I’m hopeful Verizon is treating it as a P1.

      I ordered two new iPhones through Verizon, and tried to activate one to start. I followed the steps to set up my new 5G phone. But apparently my phone is not activated yet. I have to “add” cellular plan by positioning the QR code from my carrier (which was not included in the package received) or manually enter the activation code which I do not have:

      I tried the online chat but its been busy. I requested for a call back from their customer service, I got a call back after 1 hour just to tell me that customer service is closed and they are only open until 7 pm PST. How about urgent technical issues?

      How do I get ahold of an actual person to have the new phones activated? One of the old phone is no longer working.

      Came home from pickup up at the Apple Store, turned on my iPhone 13 Pro, and transferred all data through Apple’s protocol. Now my 13 Pro has all the apps and information transferred over, but still no cellular service. Any tips?

      I have not transferred the SIM card over, as the Apple rep told me I wouldn’t need to – but of course I can, if that solves the problem!

      Had the same problem. Waited almost 2 hours and never activated, so I called Verizon.

      They told me that I should be using a physical sim and not the eSim. Put my physical SIM in and everything is fine.

      The line won’t be permanently attached to either method, but you would need to contact Verizon each time you want to switch between them. Tech support, from my experience, is still very inconsistent on their knowledge of activating eSIMs and each attempt to activate the eSIM, from calling in to the phone being ready to use, would take about 3 hours. Happened both times when I activated my XS Max and 12 Pro Max. If you have to do that I hope your experience goes more smoothly than mine have.

      If you find yourself frequently switching between phones, sticking to a physical SIM will likely save you a lot of headache until Verizon works the kinks out of this new-ish system. Just make sure you have a new SIM with the 5G branding on the actual card so that you won’t get left out of new spectrum roll-outs that are probably going to happen either late this year or early next year. If you don’t, walking into a Verizon store to get one activated is painless and free.
