I ask because I am using my mom's upgrade and she is going to take my phone and verizon takes forever to set it up and I don't want their grubby hands on the phone first lol. I would just order online, but I have to go out of town Friday afternoon and don't want to wait any longer for the GN. So will they let us buy it and walk out without setting up, or possibly buy it and leave it in the box and tell them its not for her but me and she will be using my old phone which they can use to set up for the set up/renewal process? She current doesn't have a smart phone, so mine will be her first.

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question!

I think that is a no. Must be activated at purchase I believe.
