    I have read that an iPhone 5s Verizon unlocked GSM will work with TMO & AT&T LTE.


    This would seem to make a used iP5s Verizon the preferred shopping choice or is there something I am overlooking?


    Perhaps the GSM carriers switch to a non LTE network in some areas for instance and those bands are not on the Verizon model.

    So, AT&T says when no LTE the phone uses HSPA+. This band is present on the VZ phone so in theory it would work.

    Still would be nice to hear from soneone whom has used another carrier on a VZ phone.

    It will work fine.
    People have been using Verizon iPhone's on any GSM carriers since the iPhone 5.
