    I am thinking about upgrading to the 6S sim free. Was wondering if the bugs have been worked out of this program? My credit score is just above average. Any advice. I do know I need a CC with at least the taxes and 3 mos of payments on it.

    I'm not sure you can buy SIM Free on the IUP. I know it shows up in the reserve page, but people have had issues. Nonetheless, you will need to activate it on a national carrier before you leave (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint).

    I don't think the sim free option is available for the upgrade program. As for the bugs, it really depends. I have pretty good credit and my Discover card did not work, but my Chase card did work. The Discover card actually has a higher limit as well, so I'm not sure how they determine if it's acceptable or not. I would go in with more than on CC just in case.

    Sim Free doesnt work on IUP. i was able to get AT&T model on IUP using my Discover card.

    Got my Sprint 6s+ IUP on launch day with Discover. Seems random some of the initial issues with the program.

    Well my experience. Went to the Leawood Kansas store yesterday. Walked n and told them I had a resveration, they couldn't find it. Thankfully I saved the email. Told them what I wanted to do and was told we can sell you the simmfree without applecare on the upgrade program. Oh wait guess what we cant do that, I explained to this apple retard just what I had been told by the nice folks at apple.com that you can sell me a simmfree on the apple upgrade program. Well they wouldn't and I just couldn't bring myself to buy an ATT phone fromm them or to pay outright. I can get a better deal at a Corp ATT store or Sams club then apple can offer. Son says time to go android. I don't thank so. I walked out. No iphone for me.

    Hmm the AT&T model is the same as the SIM free one, so what's the problem? But if you can get a deal elsewhere then go for it.
