After data transfer

Upgraded to iPhone XR from iPhone 8 and completed transfer. We then restored the iPhone 8 to factory settings. So, I sold the 8. What does new owner need to do to activate it?

Customer Support

Hello, Panthermomma. You would need an active SIM Card in the device. If there isn't one present. Please call us at 800-922-0204 for assistance with activating your device. TaylorH_VZW
