    What is Invalid Device Automation? Google doesn't give any relevant results.

    If the network detects an invalid device (not certified, lost/stolen, etc.), it will automatically suspend the service on the line until the SIM is put in a valid device.

    Interesting. Considering that there were multiple cases where some IMEI ranges for certified devices were missing from the Verizon database for some reason, I think this feature will be very problematic.

    Or just get the phone from Verizon, right?
