You are such a great friend. As long as you have erased your device, Michael1980, you can give your device to your friend. Your friend just needs to activate it on his own Verizon Wireless account.

settings/general/reset....at the bottom, reset/clear everything.

the recipient needs to have their phone off to activate thehir number on the new(to them) phone.

I would certainly recommend reaching out to your daughter's service provider to get the device activated for her.
