    Probably solidly locked to Verizon Prepaid service.
    Someone posted that new AT&T prepaid models are now SIM locked for 6 Months. Remains to be confirmed.

    I guess they're getting tired of subsidizing TracFone's BYOP customers . I have bought two AT&T Prepaids and had them unlocked before all this crack down started, but some day they'll have to be replaced.

    Those BYOP guys who bought AT&T Prepaid Phoenix 2s who got updated from Marshmallow to Nougat are sitting pretty. Wonder if they'll see further updates.

    That report was for the iPhone SE only. No other AT&T Prepaid phones have a SIM lock notice so far. Very possible AT&T could follow the Verizon model in future releases. Eventually that could kill off BYOP.

    Remains to be seen if our eastern friends will find a way. It's still a new device.

    $130 is a lot for a locked pre-paid device though, especially a Play version.

    The unlocked Play lists for $200, and the G6 is only $250

    (Though I'd get the 64GB G5+ for $250 instead)
