This is FALSE. Full price from Apple comes unlocked. Doesn't matter if the intended use was for Att.

I didn't know if Apple Store reps would actually pull an unlocked phone out of stock if you came in asking for, say, an iPhone 6 Plus on AT&T and decided to buy it outright. It does make sense they 'should' sell that version. If you buy it outright from AT&T, then it would still be locked upon purchase, correct?

Got my girl off my plan cuz we're not together anymore. Got the promotional individual 15GB plan from AT&T. Still thinking about switching to T-Mobile to try it out cuz I want unlimited. If I don't like it I can switch back to AT&T cuz I won't be under contract and I'll be using my iPhone

Yes you do. As Sean said:



You probably did not buy the unlocked version, but rather the AT&T version, which paying full price or not, is locked to AT&T's network. Call AT&T and ask them to unlock your phone and make sure your bill is paid up-to-date.

Since you bought the phone outright, you are probably not under contract with AT&T so they shouldn't hassle you at all.

No I don't believe so ....remember seeing a video about this on technobuffalo. If you bought any iPhone 6 or 6 plus directly at the Apple Store and paid full price the phone is unlocked already.

Test drive t-Mobile first with test drive. They charge your card for the price of the phone but only a hold so make sure you have the funds there and they let you try out their network for a week with an iPhone 5S

I switched to T-Mobile. My iPhone is unlocked. Switched Sims. Have unlimited everything now. Once I go back to work Monday and see how the service is there. I'll make my mind up. I can switch back to AT&T anytime. No contracts no device payments.

Personally I would of test drived t-mobile first since I find switching a pain in the *** and I've done it 3 times in the past year or so

I also have t-mobile. They rock here in Los Angeles. Faster lte than Verizon. Went from Verizon to sprint to t-mobile. Super-satisfied. I believe TMO to be the only carrier that's actively (and quickly/visibly) bettering their network.
