    Last year in another forum, some one was asking for help since their iPhone 7 bought from Best Buy locked to RingPlus.
    I ordered the unlocked iPhone 8 from Apple to use on T-mobile. My earpiece audio was terribly distorted on phone calls. No solution from Care. Returned it. Got the model from Best Buy and activated it with a plug VZ SIM. Had the same audio distortion. Returned it. Might try the Intel model to see if that works out. Otherwise no iPhone 8 I guess.
    Oh, the audio problem was not the same as the crackling that has been reported.

    I bought my Iphone (6S) last year from Target. An unlocked Verizon phone. Worked fine on T-mobile prepaid and I'm now using it on T-mobile one 55+. There was a rare cartwheel savings along with the usual %5 red card discount.
