    I find it odd that Apple is selling a T-Mobile unlocked 5S but not an unlocked 5S?

    Will a T-Mobile 5S work on AT&T's LTE network?

    And while I was at the Apple store a couple of days ago, I overheard an employee tell a lady that they're not selling unlocked iPhone 5S'...?

    How can I buy one then at the store? :confused:

    An officially GSM unlocked 5s (no SIM card in it) is not available "yet"... but will be eventually. Apple does this for reasons of their own. Mostly to protect carrier-attached sales the few weeks right after launch.

    But my question is, will a T-Mobile 5S work perfectly fine on AT&T's LTE networks?

    Is the 5S for T-Mobile: Model A1533 (GSM)?

    :confused:
