    I have no social security number and want to buy iPhone 5
    I talked with Verizon on the phone and they said I can buy the iPhone 5 against a security deposit of $ 400 and it will cost me a total of $ 719 to buy the phone at the 2 year contract.


    Is it possible for me to do this, to then just bring your phone to europe and use it there without paying the monthly fee? Or will the phone be blocked for service or will I be sued for breach of contract?

    If you're paying full price you're not subject to contract so your part of your question makes no sense. Use on other carriers has nothing to do with your contract. Contract is on service, not the device.

    You're not taking my phone to Europe. :D

    It would be much easier to just purchase from an Apple retail store. Just purchase a Verizon "Device Only". No SSN, no contract and the price is the same.

    Then you can take your iPhone 5 to Europe. However you will not be able to use it on a CDMA network and it might not support the LTE network in the contry of your choice. However it will have GSM/HPSA+ coverage Worldwide.
