Can I activate an iPhone5s that I purchased online at an Apple retail store?

    Yes. I ordered my iPhone 5S on the last day of September and it was delivered to my home about two weeks later with a SIM card installed. I had my phone sent to my home so that I wouldn't have to deal with people (salesmen). I literally just turned the phone on and followed the directions on the screen to activate my iPhone 5S. You should be able to do the same thing. Some people got notifications from Apple or their phone company carrier telling them that their SIM card would arrive at a different date. If this happens, insert the SIM card into the phone, turn it on and follow the directions on the screen to activate your iPhone.
