I don't know if you qualify, but I have heard that sprint WILL unlock your GSM slot for traveling outside of USA. You just would not be able to use the phone with USA carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile.

So my advice is to look into this option before a sim imposer.

Sprint Nextel said Monday that its iPhone 5s are locked. Customers in good standing for at least three months can ask to have them unlocked for international use only. AT&T unlocks phones once they're out of contract.
