    I'm planning on getting the Iphone 5 in some weeks, i would like to know if Apple store canada would sell the GSM model A1429, i want to buy this model mainly because i travel to europe very often and this would provide compatibility with european LTE bands. Does anyone have any information about this?

    It seems pretty clear that Apple stores in Canada will be selling just the A1428 model. They really have no reason to sell the A1429 model.

    I know it doesn't make sense for them to sell the model A1429 but still i would like to know if they would give their customers who buys the device outright to choose which model they would want

    doesn't make sense for them to stock it.

    Yeah, they are extremely efficient with logistics. No reason to allocate/waste any stock on it.

    Just out of curiosity, do you spend more time in Europe than in North America, is that why you would want that model?

    Apple will only sell the A1428 model in Canada as that is the only model that supports LTE here. It doesn't make any sense to sell the 1429 model here as very few people would want that model.

    Just buy it in Europe if you spend more time there.
