    I am wanting to buy an unlocked 6s to use on the Cricket wireless network (AT&T MVNO), however, it looks like no one is selling unlocked 6s'. How can I get one?

    If you pay full-price of T-Mobile 6S. It'll come unlock. I bought it T-Mobile version to use in Europe. :)

    Does anyone know if the 3G and LTE frequency bands are the same in the AT&T and T-Mobile iphone 6s'?

    No. The AT&T also has Band 30, which is used only by AT&T in the US. There is a whole thread on this topic. Both will work equally well on any other network besides AT&T, though.

    It won't have LTE Band 30 on AT&T in the US, but that band is not currently deployed nor is there a roadmap or timeline for when it will be. You won't be able to take advantage of that new band but it will work fine otherwise. I don't see that as a big downside even if the band existed today, and if you are in a smaller market it might not come to you for many years anyway.

    By the time the LTE band 30 is used widely, we will be using iPhone 8 phones.

    The T-Mo will work perfectly on AT&T. Been using one for over a year.

    ^ This. Unlocked T-Mobile version will be the one you'll want, OP.
