    Strange IMEI Checker Results

    I typed my IMEI into Straight Talk, Net 10, Total Wireless, Page Plus, Red Pocket and Verizon, IMEI checker portals for Vz compatibility. Verizon Red Pocket and PP gave the imei compatible. The rest did not, called ST of course nothing they can do that's the computer generated result. Iphone 6s unlocked by At&T. Any thoughts on how to clean this matter up?

    The phone was unlocked about 1.5 years ago, currently on T-Mobile.

    That's a GSM model - if it's unlocked you can use it on GSM carriers only.
