I have a new factory unlocked iPhone 6 I want to use with my Verizon account. Will it work?

I was given a Factor Unlocked iPhone 6 as a present and I want to now use it with my current Verizon account.  What do I need to do to transfer the information from my old iPhone 4 to this new iPhone 6?

That's an awfully nice present, Suzy@1524. You can double check if the Device ID is compatible with your current service by logging into and entering in the device details. If it did not come with a Verizon Wireless SIM card, you can visit one of our corporate locations ( to pick up a SIM card to activate it to your account. If it came with a card, you can activate it straight through My Verizon.  Apple also offers some really great options for backing up one iPhone and restoring your information to another at to make the process easier.
