    Just wondering if anyone has tried or if it's even possible to insert an active Verizon sim card into a Sprint iPhone 6 and have it work with voice AND data?

    Now that sprint is changing there unlocking policy it will soon be possible. The phone has be either paid off or off from its 2 year contract however.

    Also the sprint iPhone 6 and 6+ are the two "world" phones as they do have the most LTE bands in them to pick up in more places. Therefore the unlocked version  sales is the sprint version of the iPhone.

    You have three more days. Assuming, as mentioned, your phone is paid off and you have active service on the 19th your phone will be DSU unlocked - automatically. DSU, standing for Domestic SIM Unlock.

    If your phone is NOT paid off, or you do not have active service with that phone, then you'll need to call Sprint.

    The phone must be completely paid off and you must not owe Sprint any money before they will grant a DSU.

    Sweet, good to know their policy is changing!

    ----------

    So let's say it's now after the 19th and the phone is auto unlocked. Is the Sprint unlocked IP6 or Verizon IP6 better (unlocked already)? As in has more bands, etc.

    Well the sprint iPhone 6 will be better as far as globally. However the Verizon iPhone 6 is unlocked out of the box. If you get the Sprint iPhone unlocked it is the better phone.
