    My friend bought an iphone 5 off of CL, the model # is A1429 How can i tell weather its a verizon or GSM model? i popped my att sim in and att came up and he popped in his t-mobile sim and it worked i just want to know if this happens to be a verizon model? I dont have LTE in my Area that would be a dead give away if it was CMDA.

    Sprint uses the A1429 too. CDMA.

    But the Sprint model won't accept AT&T or T-Mobile SIMs.

    T-Mobile is A1428 due to band 4 LTE support.

    A1429 is both GSM and CDMA but in the US it doesnt support Band 4 for LTE. So no LTE on ATT or T-Mobile.
