    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?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Once it's unlocked it will work for Verizon too.

    I would just need to get the activated sim card correct?

    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.
