Re: Iphone 7 plus Tmobile vs AT&T
In the US and Canada, there are two models of each iPhone 7.
The T-Mobile & AT&T phones are the same. They lack the CDMA radio due to their Intel modem. The Verizon and Sprint models truly work on all carriers in the US and China. The Sprint one, though, if activated on Sprint, is locked for 60 days to Sprint. The have different model numbers due to the SIM that is included.
The most desirable one is the Verizon model if you are interested in changing carriers or you want to maximize resale value later on...
Otherwise the AT&T and T-Mobile versions will work anywhere there is a GSM signal.
The SIM-Free version, which has not been released yet in the US, will most likely be the Verizon version with no SIM.
Hope this helps..

iPhone 7 plus Tmobile vs AT&T
If it's any like like the 6/6s then the AT&T and T-Mobile ones are exactly the same and then there's the one that Verizon and Sprint gets. Again, if anything like last years model then the AT&T/Tmo model also works on Verizon and sprint and has 1 extra band that only AT&T uses.
It's also worth nothing that Verizon and Sprint have moved more towards using LTE pure phones and away from CDMA. So in my opinion the extra CDMA radio is becoming obsolete with LTE.
Not sure how they did it this year but I know last years model, AT&T model was the best one because it worked on every carrier and had the extra band while the ones for Verizon and sprint lacked it. My wife is currently using a 6s plus that we originally got on AT&T and now on Verizon. I don't know why they would change it.

I bought the Verizon iPhone 7 Plus at Apple Store. Paid full price for it. Doesn't require a contract with Verizon. Using it with AT&T sim card now. Everything works, including MMS, visual voicemail, and Wifi calling.
