If its truly unlocked and has a nano SIM card tray then I see no reason why not.

Yes, it should work. Apple started selling truly unlocked phones (A1428 model) since Thursday night. This is not tagged to AT&T or Verizon and can be used with any GSM wireless provider straight out the box. I bought one on Friday, and I have an O2 Sim from my last visit to London, and it works.
