    I have an At&t account and i've had it since the first iphone so i'm granfathered in. They want to charge me 850 for a new one because they say i'm in eligible, even though last year i bought an unlocked phone for that price. so im' considering switching. i don't mind losing the unlimited data because i never use over a gig a month anyway, and i'm interested in a shared plan for multiple devices, which would cause me to lose that anyway, and att has terrible service in my area. but i do like and use voice and data at the same time. speed is important though

    my question is more related to what is easier to use over seas. I like gsm because all i can do is get a local sim and i'm good to go. i don't know how cdma works in that regard. would love to know which is best.

    Verizon version allows for overseas LTE. ATT does not.

    you need permission from Verizon to use your phone use a GSM overseas AT&T will have to unlock you or you'll pay for international roaming...if your phone is unlocked either should be fine overseas with a nano sim
