I Want to buy the Nexus 5x from the Google play store. If I do that will I be able to activate it on my active Verizon account?

It will work. I recommend that you swap the sim card from your previous device (needs to be a nano sim card) into the 5X (assuming you are already a verizon customer). It should start working immediately.

If your previous device had a micro sim card you will need to transfer your information to a nano sim.

Jamairose7, having a new phone is very exciting and there are always many deals out there. As the Nexus 5 was not a device sold or manufacturer for Verizon Wireless, we are unable to guarantee connectivity to our network. If purchasing the Nexus 6 or 7 for Verizon Wireless, you would ensure that you are able to use that new phone, with your current plan.

The Nexus 5X and 6 and 6P will work on Verizon.  There is no such thing as a Nexus 7 phone.

Verizon used to sell the Nexus 7 2013 tablet with a Verizon SIM card.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
