Verizon No Longer Activating iPhone 6 Devices?

I have an old iPhone 4 which I know is being dropped at the end of the year as it's 3G. But I took it and an iPhone 6 to a Verizon store, and the employee there told me they couldn't activate the iPhone 6 because it was "too old".

I know that 3G is being dropped; but the iPhone 6 is 4G with VoLTE. Did I get bad information? Is Verizon no longer activating iPhone6 devices?

Let's clear up any confusion. Yes, our 3G services is being retired. The devices that are not supported are listed on our website found here https://www.verizon.com/support/knowledge-base-218813/ under the "How Do I Know if I have an impacted Device" section. The iPhone 6 is not one of these devices. Impacted iOS devices are: 

  • Apple iPhone 5, 5C, 5S or Prior.

Thanks for the quick response!

So how can I go about activating my iPhone6 if the local Verizon store refuses to do it because it's "too old"? Are individual stores able to make this decision?
