Using unlocked AT&T iPhone 5 on Verizon?
I plan on switching carriers can i use my same phone on Verizon?
Apple said it was possible if its unlocked but I'm seeing different things online.

This is one of the myriad of reasons I hate verizon. Ironically, you can use a verizon iphone 5 on at&t (without lte though).
64 GB space grey iPhone 5S (AT&T); 16 GB space grey iPad retina mini (Verizon with T-Mobile sim); 2014 rMBP 2.8 GHz quad core i7, 16 GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Nvidia GeForce GT 750M

Whoever told you that you can use an AT&T iphone 5 on verizon was mistaken.
Like others said verizon will never allow it to activate on their network unless its a verizon device.
You could do it the other way a verizon i5 to AT&T but not in reverse like you're planning.

at&t iphone 5 = GSM only. it can be used on any GSM network worldwide (once unlocked) but NOT on any CDMA network
verizon iphone 5 = CDMA and GSM. it can be used ONLY on verizon, and then any other GSM network in the world (once unlocked)
basically, both the verizon and at&t phone are compatible with any GSM network, but only the verizon one can be used on verizon. if you switch to verizon from at&t, you will need to sell your current phone and buy a verizon one.
Verizon iPhone 6, 128GB Space Grey
