iPhone 6 Plus Model A1524: Can I BYOD?

My wife has an iPhone 6 Plus model a1524 purchased from the Apple Store and currently in use on with an AT&T MVNO (Consumer Cellular).  Can anyone confirm whether this unit is compatible with XM?  Here are the supported technologies and bands: 

 

Model A1586*/ Model A1524*

  • CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and Rev. B (800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
  • UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
  • TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A)
  • GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
  • FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29)
  • TD-LTE (Bands 38, 39, 40, 41)

My sense is that because of CDMA support and its classification as a "world phone," the unit should work.  Thought I'd ask here before braving the local Xfinity store.

Thanks, yes, I did that, but it's a little inconclusive.  I mean, if, as is the case here, a phone is used on AT&T's network, but the carrier is an MVNO (like Consumer Cellular), does that make the phone an "AT&T phone," for the purposes of determining compatibility, or does it make it "Other?"  I'm pretty sure it's compatible, but probably best at this point to bite the bullet and take it into an Xfinity store for the final word.

It would make sense to take it to store.  Also you can check Verizon compaibility here
