As I couldn't find a black one I ordered it directly fro VZ Wireless on the phone. It's at FedEx and ready to be delivered on Thur.
The VZ guy told me all I have to do is put my current phone in airplane mode and fire up the S5 and that this will automatically activate it and get the sim card registered.
Is this true? Could it be this easy or is there something else I'll have to do?
