    Verizon iPhone will work with all carriers. Not sure about whether you need an account to buy one. This year apple did something different and asked for account info even if you're buying it outright.

    Yes it will. I know you can buy it full retail at Best Buy without a contract (alot of BBY stores price match with Apple btw)

    Mine is a Verizon 7 Plus 256GB working perfectly fine on T-Mobile. I had 0 issues buying it at the Apple Store without a Verizon account.

    When you plug it into your computer and open iTunes you'll get the "Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked." screen which is also nice.

    If you can find the Verizon model you want I think that would be a good idea.

    really? bestbuy unactivated price is $869 whereas apple.com is $769. So, buy from bestbuy and the call to request a price match?

    BBY's full retail iPhones are 50.00 more than Apple's. And yes BBY price matches with Apple

    I had the same question myself, couldn't purchase it directly from Apple.com without a Verizon or Sprint account, but I was able to walk into my local Apple Store and buy one without any questions.
