I am buying an iPhone 5S online from Apple on Friday, Sept. 20. My understanding is I can have it delivered to my house or my local Apple Store. I currently have a 4S. My carrier is Verizon. I know the 5S uses a nano SIM card and my 4S has a micro SIM card. I don't think cutting the micro SIM card down to size is a good idea. So, my understanding is I need to activate that new nano SIM card (which I assume will come with my Verizon iPhone 5S). Do I need to go to Verizon to have the new nano SIM card activated? Can I go to my Apple Store and have them activate the new nano SIM card?
If I can activate the new nano SIM card at either my Verizon store or the Apple Store is the a reason for preferring one over the other?
