    Hey guys. I bought the iPhone 6 on AT&T and love it. However my buddy has a 6plus on Verizon and wants to trade me because he regrets getting the plus. If I unlock my phone will this trade work at all? I know Verizon is unlocked, but will it work on GSM and vice versa? Thanks for the help.

    Should work. Only problem is the device will probably be seen as a "NON-VZW DEVICE". I have no idea if this impacts anything

    Verizon Iphone 6 will work on AT&T no problem

    AT&T Iphone 6 on Verizon should work but you may run into some signal issues. Note some people have reported that they were unable to get it to work.

    Give it a try. Swap the sim cards with the phones but make sure the AT&T phone is unlocked first.

    Verizon will only allow phones that are sold as Verizon to be used on their network.

    Verizon told me the VZW will work with AT&T but the AT&T won't work with Verizon. They could have been pulling my leg because they wanted the sale...which Apple got anyway.

    Verizon will not knowingly (most CSR won't anyway) activate a SIM card to be used on an AT&T iphone. However, if you have a SIM card already activated with Verizon's network, it will work in an AT&T iPhone

    ----------

    See above.

    Partially incorrect. Verizon will work on AT&T 6/6Plus. I can confirm by inserting my nano sim card from my Verizon iPad Mini Retina wifi + cellular into my unlocked AT&T 6 Plus and it does work (of course data only since it came from my ipad). Provided that you have an active account on Verizon you should be fine.
