Locked vs unlocked

I am looking to buy an iPhone 6. I was told not to buy an unlocked phone because some features don't work properly with at&t. Told I need to buy an at&t locked iPhone. Is this true?

Not true for newer iPhones. An unlocked iPhone 6, regardless of whether or not it is the ATT version, will support all advanced features. What you were told is true for other phones but not newer iPhones.

iPhone is the exception to the branded phone issue.  There are also limited features if you use prepaid service.
