I just want to confirm this here, if I walk into my local Best Buy and purchase a Verizon iPhone 6s at full price as soon as I pop my T-Mobile sim card in it will work for T-Mobile right? Nothing to unlock, right?

That's why Verizon iphones rock?
It's nice that they are unlocked out of the box. I think the day is coming when all carrier phones will be unlocked though given that they are all doing away with subsidy upgrades. Last year I Had the Verizon 6 Plus. However, this year I went with the Sim Free 6S Plus because I wanted band 30 for AT&T, but also wanted the ability to have it activated on Verizon without a problem if I decided to switch if need be.

Why don't you just buy sim free at apple store?

Be careful.

Most Best Buy stores will sell u Verizon full price iPhone. But the two I went to in orlando wanted $50 over msrp.

I told them msrp for 64gb plus was $850 and they insisted on selling it for $900.

U may get the right Best Buy to "price match".

But some Best Buy won't budge especially when 6S plus was in high demand.

Maybe now that demand has caught up to supply u can get them to price match.

Just get on the line with corporate while they sit there and watch, after you've already asked to speak with the store manager (my wife deals with stuff like this on a daily basis). They aren't supposed to refuse a sale like that. And corporate will straigten them out. The company makes more on a contracted device, but they'd rather keep the customer than the contracted sale...

They price matched with no issue at all.
