You pay whatever company provided you the SIM card that you put in it. Say you have an AT&T SIM card in an unlocked phone and you're in America: you pay AT&T for service. If you go to Canada, and use that same card, you continue to pay AT&T, and Rogers will provide you with service because they have an agreement with AT&T. But now that you have an unlocked phone, you can take out that AT&T SIM card and put in one of Rogers' own, and pay Rogers directly, which will in most cases be cheaper than the international rates that AT&T charges.So who do you pay for minutes and data on an unlocked phone? And they work worldwide
If they work in a Verizon store, they should know you mean. If they don't, they really shouldn't be working there (not even joking).So if I just paid full price for my Verizon 6 Plus, then I can take it into Verizon and request it become "unlocked" If so, what are the chances the associate will know what I'm talking about?
They do. All Verizon phones that are capable of 4G/LTE come unlocked period. Whether you pay full price or not, are in a contract or not, the come unlocked out of the box.If they work in a Verizon store, they should know you mean. If they don't, they really shouldn't be working there (not even joking).
Are you sure however that your Verizon iPhone 6 Plus is carrier locked? I thought they all came unlocked.
