Activating Replacement iPhone 5

Apple has sent me a replacement iPhone 5 and wanted to know what I need to do to activate this.  I figured I would ask before I started anything.

Re: Activating Replacement iPhone 5

Hello tsheley,

There are a few things you can do. 1) You can take it to Verizon and they will activate your iPhone 5 for you, 2) Connect your iPhone 5 to your computer and iTunes should automatically activate it, and 3) take it to your nearest Apple Store and they can activate it for you (But I'm not 100% sure on the third option I've given you). Good luck.
