There is no easy way to Unlock this phone.

Anything from tracfone is locked. I highly doubt you can use this with other carriers without getting unlocked first.

Verizon phones are usually GSM unlocked, not sure about Tracfone though.

can you get Total Wireless if you already have a unlocked iphone 6s. I used to have straight talk and now got prepaid verizon. The 5gb data with Total Wireless with verizon coverage seems very attractive.

Gosh, I hope so, as that's our plan for my wife: buy a 6s to replace her old 4s, leave VZW, and join me on TW (she need the VZW-like service at work in NYC).

BTW, when there's too much use of VZW's towers/bandwidth, TW gets dropped down to 3g before VZW's real paying customers do.

EDIT: wait, is this NiB? For $150, I kinda assumed it was recert/refurb.

Considering it is a verizon model iphone, one would assume it is also gsm unlocked.
The straight talk version is also going for the same price.
