    Yeah. I think the Verizon and Sprint SKUs are identical except for the SIM that comes in the phone. The device itself is a proper superset of the GSM model -- exactly the same band and access tech support as the GSM model, plus CDMA support (forever to go unused, in my case).

    I found that the people the store were not really up on this, and I heard a few cases of them giving out wrong info.

    Success. They didn't even open the box in the store. There was no question whatsoever regarding any participation in upgrade programs etc. They checked my name against the reservation list, asked me how I want to pay, fetched the phone, took payment, and sent me on my way.

    When I got home I tossed the Verizon SIM that came in the phone, put my T-Mobile SIM in, and am now restoring my 6s+ backup to my new phone.
    Congrats! Enjoy your new phone.

    So I just found a store with a 7 plus and have a reservation for today. But I don't want to do the iphone upgrade program or the att program. I am just going to buy it straight up. Can I do that or no?

    They don't require you too. That said, even if you were required there is no penalty for paying off early and the financing is 0%. So you'd just pay it all of on the first payment. Last year AT&T wouldn't sell the 6s at launch full price. So I did NEXT and then paid it off at the machine in the store...employees just shook their head. There's always a way! Good luck and enjoy your phone!

    Word of caution for those picking up Verizon phone and using on att... Apple store essentially deleted my data plan to activate. Problem is. I had the grandfathered unlimited and it takes an act of Congress to reinstate. Just be aware of the possibility...

    I was wondering if apple resold returned iphone's to people as new or just sent them off to be refurb and then have them as display models.

    I don't think they can sell it as new if it has been opened.

    If it's been opened, it probably becomes refurb fodder.
