    I know that Verizon phones are unlocked but how will the Verizon 5S perform on AT&T's network? The iPhone 5 worked but it was unable to get LTE, has that changed? I'm thinking of picking up a Verizon 5S to use on AT&T but would like an idea of what to expect, thanks! :confused:

    As well as the AT&T or GSM unlocked versions.

    Just switched 3 days ago. Works great. Just put AT&T sim in and go. I got 31 Mbps on LTE.

    My wife brought her Verizon iPhone over to AT&T in early February. Everything works perfectly.

    It'll work as well as AT&T's network performs in your area.

    If I buy a VZW iPhone 5s, it will work on ATT as people above said, but is it GSM unlocked for overseas carriers as well, out of the box?

    Yes.

    Someone above posted a link to a thread with extensive information about it.

    How about a US cellular version model A1453? Will it work on ATT and other GSM carriers?

    There is more info in the link posted above. I'm pretty sure A1453 is the same as the Sprint model.

    Ported to AT&T 3 days ago and my 5s works flawless now but it was having issues and tech support had to reprovision the device twice

    I wonder why this happens for some folks. My wifes Verizon iPhone 5s worked perfectly on AT&T after the switch. She only had to do a restart.

    I had a Sony/Ericsson phone I purchased on Ebay about 7 years ago and AT&T had all sorts of issues getting it provisioned correctly...

    Not sure but I googled the issue and told the tech what I thought it was- he laughed at me but then end up at provisioning too- he could have saved himself about 20 mums on our call

    Will a Verizon iPhone 5 be able to use T Mobile LTE? Anyone know for sure?

    Someone said above that it can't use AT&T LTE, so I would assume the same for T-Mobile.

    I paid full price for a Verizon iPhone 5s and use it on AT&T. Simultaneous voice and data and LTE work great.

    Not a 5, only 5C or 5S.
