As stated in the title would the verizon 5S be compatible with AT&T and Tmobile's network? Thanks
Yes. But Verizon will not activate a phone from AT&T.
There are plenty of threads that already answer this.

I'm amazed that the media has not picked up this. The Verizon iphone 5s is the first phone to work on all major US carriers. Not just the standard 3G bands, but also the LTE bands. No other phone can do that. It truly is the first phone you can take from carrier to carrier without a problem.
Except sprint (among the top four carriers)

Re verizon 5s on att LTE bands
This is exactly why i am still waiting to buy a 5s , once this is clarified with an actual demo on you tube or anywhere else ,that the Verizon phone can use the att sim on Lte bands ,i will buy tne Verizon one even tough i am an att customer because i think it will have a better resale value , that you can activate it on all networks if you need to jump from one to another. Any verizon buyer that actualy tried a 5s phone with an att sim , and got Lte speeds with it would do a really big favour to all of us that are still waiting for this confirmation , and i Thank you ! a lot in advance .
Does Tmobile's 3G work only if they are refarmed?
On the 5s it works no matter what. Tmobile AT&T and Verizon share the same model 5S.
The Verizon iPhone is GSM unlocked by law. It works with any GSM carrier. There is nothing to wait and prove. Buy it.
The T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon iPhone are all the same model and support all US bands. The Verizon or unlocked AT&T iPhone will work with T-Mobile LTE/4G. Refarmed area or not.
Theoretically you could take an AT&T or T-Mobile unlocked version to Verizon. The model supports CDMA. But Verizon will not add another carrier's phone to their network.
While you have to trust me that I bought my iPhone from Verizon, here is a quick speedtest. Speeds are not relevant, but you can clearly see I am having no problem with LTE on AT&T using a Verizon iPhone 5S.
You don't need to wait. It's an unlocked phone. I bought a Verizon 5S and I'm using it with TMobile LTE.
I don't have a YouTube account, but I bought a Verizon iPhone "device only" in the store on Saturday and the first thing I did was put my AT&T SIM in it. I am getting LTE speeds. The Verizon iPhone 5s is the same as the AT&T version in all respects except it also supports CDMA.
BTW, I don't even have a Verizon account. The sales person didn't ask me. Just buy it device-only. Unfortunately, you won't be able to use the online in-store pickup option (that requires entering account information), but you can at least get a sense of what stores near you have phones in stock online by going through the motions online. This year it appears that the online in-store pickup is in addition to, rather than instead of in-store physical sales.
The AT&T customers that bought VZW iPhone paid full price? Or did you buy the phone from Apple at the upgraded price? How does that work?
I am interested to see how to make this work as well. I am on AT&T and want to buy the Verizon 5s. I want to buy it full price but the Apple store will not let me do it unless I create a share everything plan. Is there a way to do this without becoming a Verizon customer?
