    In Canada, but I want to ensure I get the A1661 version, how can I select the model on the apple store site or app?

    Once again... I am baffled... why do non-Verizon/Sprint customers care about having CDMA support on their phone? Even in Canada... all of the Carriers will be using the GSM version. The Both models have the SAME LTE bands available. So... unless you are specifically going to be using it on a CDMA carrier... why does it matter?

    What if you want to change carriers? I have AT&T but may wish to switch to Verizon. I do not have a Verizon account now and there is no way to buy a fully compatible phone in the pre-order.

    I ordered Black phone at and paid full price. I personally expect a iPhone I can use on any carrier. I am on no contract and owe the carriers nothing

    Here's the page to "check" -

    The Model A1661 (iPhone 7+) is a CDMA phone which won't work in Canada, according to the chart. So, are you looking for an iPhone that works "only" in China & Hong Kong? Because if you need it for both Canada & China/Hong Kong you better ask your carrier and be sure.

    Otherwise, that chart shows only the Model A1784 (iPhone 7+), the GSM phone, is supported by Canadian Telcos.

    Right but, you'll have this phone for what, a year? And if you really don't want to wait until the end of the year you can trade in your current phone for a Verizon one in a Verizon store. They'll literally do anything to sign up a new customer.
