Can I use the at&t sim card with a contract-free Tmobile iphone6 plus?

Can I use the at&t sim card with a contract-free Tmobile iphone6 plus bought from Apple online store?

 

Since there are only four options on the apple online store(contract with at&t, sprint, verizon, and contract-free T mobile). I am not available to sign up a at&t contract, but I am a at&t customer. And I just joined my friend's family plan, the at&t employee told me that I cannot switch to a iphone6 contract in 6 month.

 

So can I just buy a contract-free T mobile iphone6 plus from apple online store and use at&t sim card? Will it be OK with the at&t service and the 4G internet service?

I'm not sure if the T-Mobile contract free iPhone is SIM unlocked, which is what you would need. Typically Apple starts selling SIM unlocked iPhones within a month or two after the initial release, so your best bet would be to wait until that happens and just buy a SIM unlocked one. You will then be able to use it on AT&T network. I would suggest you stop by an AT&T corporate store so that they can get everything set up right for you (some of the features, such as FaceTime and mobile hotspot require AT&T to add appropriate codes to your account).

You sure can! 

 

I generally stand in line on launch day since I had almost zero success for preorders to deliver launch day. Purchase the T-Mobile version of the iPhone for full price and it is factory unlocked for GSM carriers including AT&T. I am using the 6+ version of T-Mobile phone with AT&T.

The contract-free T-Mobile iPhone 6 purchased from Apple is unlocked and can be used on any LTE network.  There are reports that the same phone purchased from T-Mobile may not be unlocked.

If you have any questions about usage, you can double check your phone's IMEI on the Bring your own phone link on AT&T's website. You should be fine with the T-Mobile version provided it's unlocked (should be).
