I'm planning on buying a full price iPhone 6+ (Verizon) so I can use it on my current AT&T plan, and then switch to T-mobile when my contract is up in a few months. I odn't have an Apple store nearby, but Best Buy has them in stock. They offer the "replacement device" at full price, but from what I've read on here, you have to be a subscriber even to buy at full price. It doesn't say that on their site that I can see, and it lets me add it to my cart for in-store pickup. But I'd rather not go through the whole process if it's going to be a problem when I get to the store, and calling them is useless. The main problem is I have some gift cards I want to use, and it would be a hassle if I have to cancel/return/etc. I'd rather just not buy it in the first place if it's not going to work. Was just curious if anyone who does not have an existing VZW contract has been able to do this.
