    Are there hardware differences between the ATT and Verizon iphones? Or is it just the sim card?

    I just realized that my aunt might have an upgrade available on her account (which she will let me use), the only problem is she is ATT and I am on Verizon.

    Can I just use her ATT upgrade and get a Verizon phone?

    If I get an ATT phone, can I just put in a Verizon SIM?

    No. An AT&T phone won't work w/ VZW even if unlocked. They use different tech. AT&T is GSM. VZW is CDMA.

    You could do the opposite though and use a Verizon phone with AT&T since all iPhones support GSM. You just won't get AT&T LTE with a Verizon phone.
