Activating phone from another carrier

I am buying a used iPhone 6 Plus from someone that used the phone with AT&T.  Will I have an issue activating the phone with Verizon?  I have a active Verizon Account if that helps.

Possibly. AT&T uses gsm while Verizon uses cdma.

The iPhone 6 is one of the first phones to have bands for all carriers, including CDMA bands.

Once it is unlocked from ATT it will work on Verizon.

I bought a sprint iphone 6 plus, I called sprint and they unlocked it, will it work with my Verizon simple card?

Yes.   Here is the policy and info on Sprint phones.  The iPhone 6s is also unlockable for domestic, the information hasn't been updated to show it yet.
