With Black Friday approaching I was wondering what would happen if I bought the straight talk iphone SE and tried to use it on my verizon plan?

It will need to be unlocked most likely

NYCPhonebuyer is exactly right! You should make sure that your iPhone is unlocked. Only unlocked devices will work on different networks.

Fortunately, you can call your wireless carrier and ask them to unlock your phone. They are required by the FCC to unlock your phone for free as long as a few criteria are met:

  • You have completed your wireless service contract or paid an early termination fee
  • You have finished paying for your phone

Sometimes, there are also different phone models that work with certain network bands and frequencies across the globe. But in the case of the iPhone SE 2020, only one version was sold in the US (A2275) and it supports all commonly used US wireless bands.

Straight Talk requires 12 months of active service before they will SIM unlock a device. So that would not be a good device to buy, if you're a Verizon customer
