    My family used to have Verizon and the service was amazing, but the pricing was a ripoff. When the iPhone 6s came out we all moved to T-Mobile.

    Now that Verizon has a pretty solid unlimited plan my family and I are considering moving back because there's certain areas where we never get coverage with T-Mobile.

    We all have iPhone 6s' and I'm wondering how we move back to Verizon? Will they let us use our current phones or will they try and force us to buy a 7 (don't want to do that - we want to wait for the 8).

    My only concern about waiting until the 8 is it could be an absolute pain to switch by then with all the madness. Any advice is welcome!

    Thanks

    You can reuse your iPhone 6S on Verizon. Before porting out, make sure to request to unlock the phones via chat or calling in. It should be a quick process.

    Ask T-Mobile to Unlock the phones? Is there a way to confirm everything has been unlocked?

    Yes, you can check the unlock status by logging onto your T-Mobile account. Click on the "Phone" tab and then "Check Device Unlock Status." If you still have an Equipment Installment Plan, you will need to pay that off for them to process the unlock. Good luck!

    To move my 6S Plus from ATT to Vzw they (Vzw) needed to reset and then change APN code.
