So while firmly in the Mac fold with a cMP and an iPad, I am not part of the smartphone side… and wanted to try and advise a friend that they can use an iPhone they just got via wifi without a carrier. So I tried to do some research and got massively confused. There seems to be locked and unlocked units, with sims and without sims. All I know for sure is she bought it at Walmart (a 6S+ for 200 bucks, brand new, seems like quite a deal). Tried looking at Walmart, but there seems to be zero information about sims in or out, locked or not. I was under the impression iPhones did NOT use sims… I see there are sites where one has to actually pay something and they promise to get it hooked up on the network (via wifi), promising to “activate” them. I’m sure someone can give me a quick few paragraphs telling me what I have to try and get her to do (one site talked about MUST connect to a machine via iTunes, she doesn’t have a computer and not much access to any).
Can anyone help a guy out?
