    I see apple sells Carrier free phones and states can activate with ANY carrier later.... I thought the T-Mobile and AT&T phones were not compatible with SPRINT or Verizon... And for that matter you can't buy a SPRINT phone and activate on Virgin Mobile (which are the same carrier)...

    So can you activate with ANY Carrier Later?

    At point that was the case, but for a couple of phone generations the phones now have the chipsets for all the carriers.

    This was true years ago like said above.
    Now since the iPhone 6 many devices include baseband chips with multiple frequencies that work on both cdma and GSM carriers and pretty much can function in every carrier out there
