Do not buy new cell phones as gifts as a surprise

Verizon will send the recipeint a text message congratulating the person on their new phone even if the phone was not activated.  I purchased a new phone for my sone as a surprise and two days later he received a text from verizon congratulating him on his new phone even though he would not receive it for his birthday for 2 weeks.

Surprise ruined.
