New Apple "rental" iPhone 6s not factory unlocked
I live in two citiesóLA and Tokyo. When last in LA a few weeks ago, I "bought" a 6s under the new Apple iPhone rental scheme announced alongside the 6s. I was assured in the store that it was factory unlocked and it came with an AT&T SIM. On getting to Tokyo, I put the SIM in it from my Softbank oldish iPhone 6 and it shows the SB SIM as unrecognized! A visit to the Apple Store Japan was met with dumbfounded stares and suggestions it is a Softbank problem.
Does anyone here REALLY know the exact unlock status of iPhone 6s units rented from Apple under the new scheme?
