    Hello,

    I am about to hit T-mobile store and wondering Before I make a purchase.

    If I buy the iPhone XS from Tmobile store, will it be unlocked for carriers like Verizon?

    Thanks all for your input!

    I know it might come locked for a few weeks, months, or whatever the policy is with every carrier, but I just need to know if I can use it with both CDMA and GSM

    **Update: Learned that theres no difference between the two with new Intel chip inside and can be used with either of the carrier.

    Thank you for your input.
    Upon verifying and doing research one them I found that they are actually both supporting CDMA and GSM because of new Intel chip.
    Checked and compared the bands and they are identical with gsm and cdma which means that there's really no difference.

    This is the first year apple did that with iPhone.

    Heres some quick read article if anyone is interested

    I should have paid more attention when it posted as X's and not XS. Apologize. In my post though I said XS.

    I'll blame it on autocorrect :p:D

    If you buy it from the T-Mobile store I believe it will be locked to T-Mobile. Not sure what their unlock policy is if you pay full price.

    This year the same phone supports both networks. It is just the lock/unlock policy that you have to work with if you want to change carriers.

    Yes, the OP originally asked about the X not Xs
