    Yes, it will work on both AT&T and Verizon.

    I have some experience with this. When I purchased a new Boost phone, what I did was not activate it with their included sim and buy the unlock service before I activate anything. Then it is possible to use with AT&T and T-Mo and international GSM. However, there is still an "Unpaid bills" flag on the phone, this make it not possible to be activated on Sprint until the flag is cleared, probably by using the phone with Boost first, or buy a service to clear the unpaid bills flag from that IMEI, which is different from sim unlock. I don't know about Verizon.

    Unpaid bills flag?

    Is that any different from the IMEI being blacklisted for non-payment? Or is it being used here in lieu of the term 'blacklisted IMEI'?

    Yes, that's more of an internal Sprint thing.
    With the unlock service you will be able to use it on any GSM carrier in the world and Verizon but probably not on Sprint.
    But still a good deal in the end :)

    Thanks to all. Any idea if the Boost and Virgin Mobile iPhone 6 are the same model.

    No idea, but both Boost and Virgin Mobile are Sprint MVNOs, so I believe they'd probably not want two separate models.
