    If I bought a Verizon 5s, but decided to pop in an AT&T sim card and use it on AT&T, either post paid or Gophone, would there be any disadvantage to using an AT&T 5s? Would I lose any LTE band, or anything else? Or would it be the same exact thing either way?

    I'd like to hedge my bets and use AT&T now, which is what I use, and in the future have the option to use Verizon.

    Using ATT on Verizon 5S is the exact same as using it on a ATT 5s.

    Yup, in fact, the verizon 5s is truly the only "world" phone.

    I thought AT&T was refusing to activate the Verizon 5S on their network for LTE?

    No, just pop in the sim. No set up required, you'll see lte shows up in seconds
