To clarify I donít want to cancel my Verizon service I just want it unlocked so I can also use foreign  SIM cards. Despite what the agent told me I believe they will do it for me after 60 days
I just checked it up, looks accurate, and if past 60 days may/should be unlocked automatically.

Right. The agent claimed thatís only if the phone is paid off but
I am skeptical if itís true

To clarify, if I fully pay off my phone with T-Mobile early, and trade it in to them for a deal, while paying off the second, I'll be getting credits for both phones?
Or you meant it in regards to the first part, only if done thru bestbuy/apple?

Do you have Magenta Max? You should consider the Best Buy and Apple deals and consider what works best for you.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Where is the best place to upgrade a iPhone ? I am currently with T-Mobile on a iPhone 7 Plus 128gb. T-Mobile is giving me $600 trade in. Apple offered me $110 in addition to the T-Mobile offer. Anybody knows of another place I can stack with T-Mobile offer for a better deal ?

You're sure you don't need Magenta max for the $600 T-mobile offer? I think the Apple offer is better (besides for being $100 more) because if I'm not mistaken you get $500 off instantly (and in some states save on sales tax on the new device) and only $200 is 24 monthly credits from T-mobile.

Clickbait headline. "working on" implies much more than what's implied by a patent filing. This isn't coming out on iPhone 14.

Looks like Apple is pushing Airpods bundled with devices (or device upgrades), so far both Visible and T-mobile announced BF promotions that bundle Airpods with iPhones.

I'm looking for a refurbished iphone, about 128 GB storage, unlocked. What's the price range? Also any specific model I should be looking into, for example is the 8 a good option?

Sort of works the other way around based on your budget you should look at what fits in. With iPhones pretty much the more you pay the newer / better you'll get.

What carrier?

Perhaps an iPhone SE (2nd edition, a/k/a SE 2020 or SE 2) might be a better bet for you. It's a pretty recent processor, so likely to be getting iOS updates for longer than the iPhone 8. Another option to consider if you value screen size and battery life enough to pay a bit more is the iPhone XR.

MetroPCS currently has the iPhone XR for an effective cost of $130 with activation of a $60 plan (you can cancel once you walk out the store, there's no contract), but you have to figure out how to unlock it for use on another carrier.

You can, but then you risk becoming voluntary tech support :P

Same for why I was vague and didnít mention the drawer method.

Not sure what youíre referring to. My tendency isnít to spoon feed and it was pretty clear that OP who I was replying to would have to figure it out.

Below each of your posts is a small word, which we like to call the signature. In it, you link an article from a prominent news organization. I refer to the allegations made in that article.
