Hello 2020word!

I know you're eagerly awaiting to use your new iPhone 5! When activating a 4G LTE phone you will actually need to be in direct Verizon Wireless coverage.

You can use this map: http://bit.ly/ymXLCI to find the closest direct coverage to you.  Once you have it activated you will be able to bring it back to school and use it though you may have limited data capabilities.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,
