    The T-mobile / Verizon / Sprint version of the iPhone 6s / 6s plus ( model numbers a1687 and a1688)
    are now allowed on AT&T it seems. You won't get band 30. But the AT&T exclusive deal of the A1633/A1634 seems to be dead now. Between launch day and just recently, if you tried to check the imei of the other model, AT&T would inform you that the device was not compatible, and you couldn't order a SIM card on their website. That has changed some time last week is my best guess.

    So both iPhones are now universal. You don't need to to have a a1633/a1634 model to go to AT&T , you just will lose on band 30.

    If more people would verify their imeis please do

    Before last week if you wanted AT&T on that model, you basically had to go to cricket or take a SIM card from another phone

    I haven't seen any news about this AT&T policy change., I wrote a couple blogs, but I never heard back

    It's been like that for months. Been using my T-Mobile IPhone on AT&T without any issues for awhile.

    Yeah I knew it had to be about 30 days max. I remember checking it recently and still being denied a SIM card. Its weird that no one has mentioned this before. I think theres a need to put the word out

    According to my browser history, my iPhone failed the device check on July 15.

    He's saying you couldn't order a SIM card with one of those before, but you could always take an active SIM card you already had and use it in one of those devices any time.
