Unlocked iPhone 12 from Apple
My wife currently has a line with AT&T. I don't, my line is with another carrier through work.
If I buy an 'unlocked' iPhone 12 directly from Apple and give it to my wife as a gift, will she be able to set it up with AT&T and easily replace her old iPhone? I'll be holding this for over the two-week return policy by Apple, so I need to be sure. When I try to buy an iPhone 12 connected with AT&T, they ask for AT&T account information or require me to set up a new account. So my only choice as I see it is to buy an unlocked phone or look for another gift. So again, if I buy an 'unlocked' iPhone 12 directly from Apple and give it to my wife as a gift, will she be able to set it up with AT&T replacing her old iPhone?

If you buy the unlocked and SIM free version from Apple, you should be good to go. She just puts her SIM card in the new phone.
