Customer Question

Friend gave me her iPhone 5 since she got a new one for Christmas. Can I take this iPhone to a Verizon store to get my phone number transferred to this phone? Her plan was with AT & T and I do not want to change from Verizon so I assume I will not be able to transfer my address book etc. but I am willing to enter it all manually if I can use this iPhone.

The following page will give more information regarding the trade in program:
