    I was planning on buying my friends iPhone 6 but it is locked to AT&T. I'm going to get it unlocked via a third party but the problem is I'm on T-mobile right now, so it will work, but in a couples of months I will be switching over to Verizon. I was wondering is the iPhone 6 from AT&T still CDMA unlocked? I know Verizon will not "activate" the phone on their side but if I get an activated sim card from them it should work correct?

    Yes.
    Once it's unlocked it will work for Verizon too.

    although Verizon doesn't activate phones that weren't purchased from them, you will need to get a Sim card from verizon to put in your iPhone 6 for it work. You will need an extra verizon LTE device laying around to do this otherwise you can just buy a verizon LTE phone take the SIM and then return the phone.

    Some of reason Unlock request will be reject:
    - Phone not completed all the payments
    - Your account had a recent device upgrade
    - Phone is currently active on another account
    - The IMEI not match with the AT&T network
    - You haven't fulfilled your service contract
    .....

    Yes, and my iPhone currently falls into two of those categories. At&t still unlocked it. Along with dozens of other people is the thread I cited above. It doesn't hurt to try before paying for an unlock.
