:eek: since it's using the GSM chip / technology (not the CDMA)?

w00t

Calling someone while surfing on safari or multi-tasking on any apps or reading emails ...

What am I missing here? :D It won't let me if I have a Verizon nano Sim card on it?

Because you're using AT&T's HSPA+ network to do that. Verizon doesn't have one of those. Their CDMA/EDVO based network cannot do that with the iPhone 5.

You won't have LTE. I'd just go get an AT&T iPhone.
DUH! Of course, lol.

Am rich, lol. If I want an LTE, I'll put my Verizon nano sim card - if there's no LTE, and I want voice & data on fast faux 4G, AT&T nano is going in. :p

So liberating ... No contracts plus I could travel roam-free around the world with E, 3G or 3.5 (and even no signal) hehe.

Yeah, I noticed this, too. It's pretty cool, been using my Verizon phone on AT&T for a few days now. :)

Only problem I've found so far is that my family gets a busy signal when trying to call my AT&T number from their Verizon phones, even while I'm not on a call or phone is on sleep. Can't figure it out :(

If you're that "rich" then why not just have both models if you need both carriers. No SIM swapping then....

Cheers!

I was told it will likely not work. But got to find it out until somebody called me and I continue do what am doing then I was like :eek: ... Wait!

I am not rich and crazy (am not an iSheep or fanboy too, lol) ... I'll buy another phone on different platform later ... Non-tacky / non-plastics made Droid or Lumia 920 but ugh it's Wiindows but let's see ...
