    No it does not. The only difference between the models offered by AT&T and Verizon are the LTE frequencies supported. The gsm radios should be identical.

    Do me a favor and check this website:

    Go to a location in DC that is marked as having the new 3G service on the map, and post back whether you actually get faster non-edge 3G.

    Its just that LTE will not work.

    Once the Tmobile 3g/4g is working on the bands in your iphone 5 then you will be good to go.
