Does it make any difference buying iPhone from Verizon Wireless vs. Apple Store?

My son needs to upgrade his old iPhone. We have VZW Everything Plan so we pay full retail. I will be buying "cash" or really charging it on my credit card so I do not need financing. My question is should I order the iPhone through Apple directly or VZW? The price is exactly the same but I am not sure if there it is better to buy it at one place versus the other? The only thing that I am not sure if whether VZW will charge me a fee for bringing my own phone if I buy it through Apple? VZW claims they waive their upgrade or activation fee (although it is not activating a new line) if I order it online. Any thoughts?
