    Use the most advanced iPhone on America's largest and fastest 4G LTE network. Verizon LTE Advanced is the next gen network, providing 50% faster peak speeds in more than 450 cities from coast to coast.

    Get the unlimited experience that fits your needs on the network you want with Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited or Above Unlimited. Get unlimited data**, talk and text and more. Learn more about unlimited.

    **4G LTE only. During times of congestion, your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic (only after 22 GB/line/mo on Unlimited Plan and Beyond Unlimited, or after 75 GB/line/mo on Above Unlimited). Not available for machine-to-machine services. Mobile hotspot/tethering reduced to speeds up to 600 Kbps (only after 15 GB/month on Unlimited Plan and Beyond Unlimited, or after 20 GB/month on Above Unlimited); domestic data roaming at 2G speeds; int'l data reduced to 2G speeds after 512 MB/day (on Unlimited Plan, Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited). If more than 50% of your talk, text or data usage in a 60-day period is in Canada or Mexico, use of those services in those countries may be removed or limited. Video streaming is HD (SD on phones on Go Unlimited plan). Auto Pay (checks, home banking, or debit cards only) & paper free billing req'd. Discounts not available.

  3. It's easy with our iPhone page, where you can compare all the features and specifications for iPhones sold by Verizon Wireless.

  4. The traditional 3.5 mm headphone jack has been replaced by a Lightning connector, to use for battery charging and wired headphones.

    EarPods with a Lightning connector are included with both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus to make calls, watch videos or listen to music. You can also use Bluetooth®-connected headphones.

    But don't give away your current wired headphones, because both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with a Lightning to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter.

  5. HD Voice delivers clearer, natural-sounding audio when both parties are using HD Voice-enabled phones, have the feature enabled, and are connected to our 4G LTE network. You can use HD Voice on iPhone 6 and newer models, including iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

    This service is included in your existing voice plan at no additional charge. HD Voice calls are billed as standard voice minutes, according to your plan. To learn more about this service, please refer to our HD Voice for iOS FAQs.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
  1. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have:

    • 12 MP back-facing camera
      • Optical image stabilization, reduces motion blur
      • Depth-of-field effect
      • Video records in up to 4K resolution
    • 7 MP front facing camera
      • Wide capture for better selfies
    • Retina HD display
    • Stereo speakers
    • Splash, water and dust resistant*
    • Internal memory up to 256 GB

iPhone SE
  1. iPhone SE has many of the same great features of iPhone 6s in a 4-inch package, such as a Retina display, A9 chip, a 12-megapixel camera and with iOS 9.3 and newer, Wi-Fi Calling.

    To see a chart comparing the features and specifications of iPhone SE to other iPhones, visit our Compare Phones tab on the iPhones page.

  2. Probably, especially if you have a newer model iPhone. The Lightning connectors for iPhone SE are also on iPhone 5 and newer models.

    However, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s use legacy 30-pin accessories.

    Our Accessories store has a Lightning to 30-pin adapter to connect iPhone SE to legacy 30-pin accessories.

Older model phones
  1. No. Only iPhone 6 and newer devices can simultaneously browse the web and make calls on the Verizon Wireless network.

  2. iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s run on our 3G network. Newer models run on America's largest 4G LTE network. Upgrade to a new iPhone today.

  3. iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s use legacy 30-pin accessories and aren't compatible with the Lightning connectors on newer iPhone models.

    A Lightning to 30-pin adapter is required to connect accessories to newer iPhones. You can buy this adapter in our online Accessories store.

  1. You can use iPhone 6 and newer models in more than 200 countries. Please use our International Trip Planner for pricing, calling instructions and other tips specific to your phone and the country you're traveling to.

    To add international service, go to My International Usage and Services page in My Verizon or the My Verizon app.

    Note: While traveling abroad, you can use Wi-Fi to obtain a data connection to access email, web browsers, FaceTime® and more. Data transmitted over a Wi-Fi connection doesn't count toward your data allowance.

Buying and Setting Up iPhone
  1. It depends on which iPhone you are interested in buying or upgrading to, including iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Check out the details on all the iPhones Verizon offers:

    You can purchase a new iPhone using device payments, which let you pay for your iPhone over 24 months. This option provides you the flexibility to get a new iPhone by making monthly payments over time rather than paying for it all up front.

    You can check your upgrade eligibility in My Verizon.

  2. Yes you can. If you're not upgrade eligible, you can purchase a new device at the retail price.

  3. Yes, this process is called porting. If your number is eligible, you can transfer your number from your current wireless or landline service provider to Verizon Wireless.

    Refer to our Port Your Number to Verizon FAQs for more information on porting your phone number.


    • Canceling your service prior to porting will prevent you from keeping your number.

    • You may be responsible to your old service provider for any contractual requirements and applicable charges, including an early termination fee, on your old account.

  4. Yes, if you have iPhone 6 or newer, you'll be able to use it on the Verizon Wireless network.

    iPhone 5s or earlier versions used with other carriers can't be used on the Verizon Wireless network because they're not the same as the similar models built to work on the Verizon Wireless network. Switch to Verizon Wireless today.

    You may be able to get trade-in value for your used device. Our Device Recycling Program website can help determine the value of your used device. If so, send the device in to receive a Verizon Wireless Gift Card.

  5. Yes, you can use iCloud® or iTunes® to transfer content from your current iPhone to your new one. Refer to the guide below for instructions:

    Transfer content from an iPhone, iPad® or iPod® touch to a new device

    Note: If your old phone is a non-Verizon phone (e.g. AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.), you'll need to install the Verizon Content Transfer app on your old phone.

  6. To learn how to activate your device, select the iPhone you're activating below:

iTunes® and Apps
  1. Yes, during set up, you can specify your existing Apple ID.

    If you don't already have an iTunes account, you can sign up for one on the iTunes website.

  2. Yes, you'll be able to sync content and iOS apps that you already have in iTunes to your new iPhone.

  3. Yes, you can search for, browse, review, purchase and download iOS apps from the App Store directly from your iPhone. Apps that you download and install from the App Store on your iPhone are backed up to your iTunes library the next time you sync your phone with your computer. When you sync your iPhone, you can also install apps you've purchased or downloaded from the iTunes Store on your computer.

  4. No. Although many of the same apps may be available on iPhone, many apps you've purchased for a different OS (e.g., Android®, BlackBerry®, etc.) won't work on iPhone.

  1. Visual Voicemail is included with your Verizon Wireless data package.

  2. Yes, to do this:

    1. Call your mobile number from another location.
    2. Press the # (pound) button.
    3. Enter your password.

    You'll then be able to listen to your message as if you called your voice mailbox from your iPhone.

  3. Yes, you can receive Visual Voicemail messages as long as you have data coverage.

  4. Voicemail transcriptions are compatible on iPhone 6s and newer, using iOS 10 and newer. Older iPhones or iOS versions don't get voicemail transcriptions.

    To view your voicemail transcriptions, simply check your voicemail:

    1. Tap the Phone app.
    2. Tap the Voicemail tab.
    3. Tap a voicemail message. You'll see the transcriptions while the message audio plays.

    To learn more, visit Apple's See a voicemail transcription on your iPhone page.

    Have an older iPhone or iOS version? You can have your voicemail messages converted to text messages and sent to you, so you can read them with Voicemail to Text for iPhone.

Accessibility and User Guides
  1. User Guides for iPhone and iPad are available through our Apple Support pages. You can find the links under Device-Specific Support at the top of your device page.

Splash, water, and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. Do not attempt to charge a wet iPhone; refer to the user guide for cleaning and drying instructions. Liquid damage not covered under warranty.
