    Any idea when the factory unlocked version is coming out in the US through the Apple store? I am anxiously waiting. I know it's been a month. Is inventory still tight at Apple stores for the 5?

    Also, with T-Mobile's LTE rollout next year, will the LTE bands on the current AT&T version be supported?

    I bought the Verizon version for full retail price. It's already unlocked. I am on T-Mobile too.

    From what I've read on here, Verizon model will work with T-Mobile since they both work with 1900MHz. I also read that T-Mobile got some of AT&T AWS. So both models might work with T-Mobile LTE.

    Cool, thanks. Just wondering if this has been confirmed. In the past, even when buying a no contract iPhone at the Apple store (for $649), they were still locked to AT&T.

    No 4/4S were $699 full price! And Apple started selling full price att unlocked iphone since the 4S. So it is going to be this way from now on! I was really surprised and exicted when I paid my iphones 5 3 total at the price of $649 plus tax it came out to around $703 here in texas for each of course!
