Just pointing this out again for everyone. What this means is that EVERY iPhone 7/7+/8/8+ that Best Buy sells for 1 of the 4 national carriers is subject to the US Reseller Flex Policy (USRFP) and they have the Qualcomm chips. They will follow the unlocking policy of whichever US carrier's SIM card you use in them for the initial activation. If you use a Verizon postpaid SIM card for the initial activation, the phone will be carrier unlocked. The Verizon postpaid SIM card does not have to be active on Verizon to do the initial activation. You can do the initial activation over WiFi or using iTunes YOU CANNOT ACTIVATE AN iPHONE SUBJECT TO THE USRFP INITIALLY WITH A NON-US SIM CARD!!!! You must use a US SIM card for the initial activation. After that, you can use an international SIM card in them as long as the device is carrier unlocked. If you use a Verizon postpaid SIM card for the initial activation, the phones will be carrier unlocked. Does the SIM card have to a be a Verizon postpaid SIM card? I have only used the Verizon postpaid SIMs so I know for sure that they work. Others claim the Verizon prepaid SIM cards work too. Target and Walmart sell iPhones s/t the USRFP also.
