    hey guys
    today i bought verizon iphone 5 (a1429 cdma)
    I heard all the verizon iphone5s are unlocked so i tried to use my at&t sim card. however, i only can make call and text, I cannot use 3g on it.
    so is that mean my phone is locked???
    anyone have an idea?

    If you use AT&T on a Verizon iPhone 5, it's only capable of getting 3G data. 4G/LTE isn't supported from an AT&T sim because of the different frequencies the carriers use.

    Perhaps if you actually give some information on the 'problems' you are having we may be of some assistance.
