    It will burn the sim tho and you will probably be charged for another one. If the rep wants to get paid they're going to have to activate the 5 on the added line then switch the IMEI of the 5 to your existing line, in turn, burning the original pre installed sim.

    A new sim can be activated. No issue.

    Dumb follow up here. I'm planning on doing this at best buy, will there be any need to go to a V store. Trying to avoid that if at all possible.

    So here is an update: I went to best buy to try and do what I had asked previously. Was told I could get the phone but I would need to go to Verizon to have my number changed to phone I was buying. This sucks

    So here is another question. If I purchase a 4s to add a line and use that on existing line would I still have the same issues as I would with the 5??
