    Where can I buy a brand-new unlocked iPhone five. Factory unlocked. I am looking online at the Apple store in Canada. However I am in the United States. Will this work?

    Yes, the factory unlocked i5 from the apple store in Canada will work fine with Tmobile USA or any GSM carrier.
    Or in the US you can buy a full price iphone at the apple store. Either the AT&T or verizon model will work with Tmobile.

    Are you in the Los Angeles area? Don't buy from Canada unless you want to pay duties,

    Go to Verizon, apple store, best buys (last choice -Araya away).

    A lot of them carry inventory now. Suppy has caught up with demand.

    Buy the AT&T version and then get it unlocked. The AT&T version is the only one that will work with tmobiles LTE when it starts rolling out in 2013.
