Can I purchase an Iphone for a Christmas gift and bring it back to be activated?

I would like to prepurchase or even reserve an Iphone for a Christmas gift and then have it activated on 12/24. Can this be done or will I have to purchase and activate on the same day?

 

Thanks

You do not have to activate the phone at time of purchase...

You do not have to activate the phone at time of purchase. It can be delayed and activated whenever you want. If you go in store make sure to tell them what you want to do.

Do keep in mind that the 14 day return period still starts on the purchase date, so if it's not exactly what the person wants, then you might no tbe able to return it due to the 14 day "buyer's remorse" period expiring before you could get it back...
