    has anyone actually tried this yet?

    the t-mobile phone is supposed to be cdma + gsm on the 6s/6s+., the AT&T one has no cdma

    i would like to hear if anyone tried using either pre-activated sims, or tried to activate this phone
    on Verizon or sprint.

    i haven't tested it yet. all i did was check the meid to Verizon's website and it said it wasn't compatible.

    The AT&T version has a working CDMA radio and can accept a working Verizon SIM, despite Verizon's website saying it is not compatible.

    i didn't say verizon was saying it was not compatible. i was saying apple is the one going around and saying it won't work because they claim the cdma radio is not an american one in the AT&T version

    I don't know what "Apple is going around saying." The website clearly says it supports the CDMA networks that are in use in the U.S. (CDMA EV-DO Rev. A [800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz]). On top of that, there are a whole bunch of regional carriers who have legacy CDMA networks who are selling the A1633 and A1634 (C-Spire, US Cellular, etc.)

    Anyway, your post did say that Verizon's website said it wasn't compatible. Verizon's website is technically wrong, but since it isn't on their white list, you won't be able to activate a new account with an AT&T or T-Mobile iPhone 6S, at least not without a lot of hassle.
