I cannot log onto data network. I get an error that says "Could not activate cellular data network."

I got a new iPhone 5S.  The phone works and I get text messages.  I cannot log on to the internet.  I get an "Could not activate cellular data network error."  How do I get this fixed?  I spent an hour with a Verizon tech and have reset the network, did a hard reset and rebooted the phone with no luck.

Did you order it online? If so power the device off then, from a different phone, call 1-877-807-4646 to accept the terms and conditions then power the iPhone on. If this does not work then take it to a corporate store.
