    Sorry if this has been posted a million times, I quickly searched with no answers.

    I pre-ordered this morning a Gold 6s Plus iPhone that I want to use on AT&T. I couldn't click AT&T to put in account info as it is on a business plan so I clicked contract free and T-Mobile. That phone will come unlocked and work as it is GSM, correct? Below are some images of what I am talking about. I just have to put my iPhone 6 Plus sim card into the new phone and everything should be great?

    Thanks!

    Yep, it will work just fine. Only drawback is the TMo model is missing a new LTE band that AT&T is implementing.

    We don't know that yet. Both the att phones and t-mobile phones show (GSM) after purchasing which makes me believe that the T-Mobile/ATT models are the A1633/A1634. See link below.

    So band 30 I may not get if it is the different model, other than that the same.

    I also reserved for in store pickup just in case there was a difference the actual AT&T model. Is it worth canceling my preorder and going in for the reservation?

    I have the same question. Just preorder the Tmobile contract free versión to use it in Peru.

    Does it come unlocked?? I read that Tmobile full price contract free comes always unlocked. Is that true?

    Thanks for that info. With that being said do you think going to get my reservation at the store for band 30 will be that much of a difference in the speed it offers?

    In areas that have band 30 deployed I expect the connection to be faster and more stable (fewer timeouts). Everywhere else there'll be no difference.

    Personally if you can change the reservation I would. The band 30 phone will likely have the best resale this time around

    Shouldn't it be unlocked to work on CDMA and GSM?

    But you can buy the phone at full price and still be unlocked and is contract free. However, the sim-free models won't be available yet and will likely have to wait weeks after launch to 3 month. 6/6+ Sim-free model was released in January 2015.
