That sounds like kind of the reason they require a SSN. They don't currently sell the iPhone 5 without a commitment, you'll probably have to wait until October/November.

You are a tourist and you want to purchase a Verizon, LTE/CDMA phone? Where are you going to get CDMA if you don't have LTE when you are in another country?

Have you been following the iPhone 5 news? The Verizon iPhone 5 is unlocked for GSM use. In fact the Verizon model is the only one that supports LTE frequencies in other countries. There is a thread with five pages talking about how the AT&T iPhone 5 is "useless" overseas because it only gets 3G service in other countries.

@dave420. I stand corrected. I'm not following too close, since I don't have a real desire for the iPhone 5 yet, since our area does not have LTE yet. Maybe by the end of the year, we will see.
