I wanted to order an iPhone 6s T-mobile model,if I pop in my Verizon Sim,will i will work?
Yes, the models support the same cellular bands.
Verizon even whitelisted all iPhone 6/6+ IMEIs from other carriers but reportedly the 6S/6S+ IMEIs haven't been added to their system yet. If Verizon doesn't activate an IMEI directly, you can always just swap your SIM. (as per the Upper 700MHz C Band terms you can use your plan on any device compatible with the network)
i was hoping it would be the same as iphone 6 plus....tmobile and verizon were same model!
Source please? I'm not discrediting what you said, I just haven't read/heard this.

Official sources for compatibility:
http://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/ - iPhone models with LTE band support. Note Verizon and T-Mobile are the same.

thanks for the info!
looks like i may pick up a 6s plus
Happy to help!
The FCC docs actually indicate that the AT&T model has the same PCB with only the addition of a filter for Band 30/WCS being deployed now. That may give it a better resale value, and will still work on both T-Mobile and Verizon.
Remember whichever model you choose it does still need to be unlocked - meaning purchased in full from Apple, or using the iPhone Upgrade Program.
"Any handset that is bought directly from T-Mobile’s online store, or via a physical T-Mobile retail outlet, will come locked to that network, even when paid in full."
