    What's the difference between the iPhone 6S plus model A1634 and A1687?

    I'm looking to buy a used, unlocked iPhone 6S Plus on and they have both model A1634 and A1687. What's the difference? I will use it with boom! Mobile (VZW network) so will that matter?
    My smartphone is a lot smarter than I am.

    I don't know if you are familiar with the website Google, but I searched it for "A1634 and A1687". It tells me that the 1634 has all bands for ATT.

    The 1687 includes CDMA ... "A1687: This is considered the world phone or global phone as it works on both GSM and CDMA carriers, and it is the most popular model being sold around the world. Like the corresponding iPhone 6S version, the A1687 doesn’t have the LTE band 30 (a new LTE band used by AT&T). The phone is available on Sprint, T-Mobile (locked and contract-free) and Verizon in the US, many carriers in Europe and Asia, as well as the Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program. Besides, if you pay full price for an unlocked version on Verizon or T-Mobile, you can be confident using it almost anywhere on the planet."

    So for the Verizon network, you want the 1687

    That is right, and many 6 and 6s are will not run on “Verizon” tower CDMA. Some will, and they will sell at a higher used price because of that. When I went traveling this summer the “Verizon “ phone got much better reception.
