    Hello guys,

    Unfortunately my country isn't in the first wave of Iphone 5S shipping.

    As I'm going in the US in october for my vacation, I'm wondering if I can buy a Iphone there.

    I know that in the past it wasn't possible to buy the phone without a carrier contract, but now in the Apple store online they mention a unlock contract free version (see picture below).

    Any risk of compatibility issue (should be use in a GSM-LTE network in Switzerland)? Any tips or advice on buying a iphone in the US?

    They mention 5S model A1533 when I currently use model A1429 of iphone 5 (are they equivalent?)

    Thanks a lot in advance for your answer

    Yeah, pick that one. Definitely. Or buy it from a carrier thats unlockable (shhh, do it back in Europe, not in the US where its illegal :))
