JBoockvar, I would first like to say congrats on the new phone. We definitely want to make sure you are able to get that new phone activated. To clarify, did your iPhone 6 come with a SIM card? As the iPhone 5 does come with a SIM card, was the SIM card lost?
Here is some great information that can help you with activating that new device... http://vz.to/1H10nlv
