I am planning to buy a T-mobile Network Locked iPhone 6 from eBay. I would just like to know whether T-mobile will unlock it for me or not ? Also, I am a current T-mobile customer, and on my current iPhone, I have prepaid minutes. I don't have a plan. I would like to continue doing that using the new iPhone 6 I buy. Locked phones are less expensive than the unlocked ones.
If a phone not bought from T-mobile cannot be unlocked by T-mobile, then can I buy an locked phone from T-mobile, and get it unlocked to be used with my prepaid minutes ?
So long as you meet the requirements listed here Unlock your mobile wireless device you would qualify for an unlock. One of those requirements can be proof of original purchase, so it's never a guarantee a third party purchase can be unlocked without that.
As for your second question, yes! Purchased from us it can certainly be unlocked if qualified!
