    Hi guys,
    as I have read that the Verizon version is unlocked I decided to buy one for full price which I did last week.
    However, I have issue because I could not know the difference between CDMA model and GSM. I travel oversees usually, should that be problem with CDMA or should work with any carrier oversees which they do not even know CDMA all use GSM. I got confuse cause someone advised me to return it and take GSM.

    No, don't return it.
    You will be fine with the Verizon 5S.
    Its unlocked and it will work with all GSM carriers in the world so you're good.

    The Verizon model is unlocked for all supported GSM/LTE bands. You will gain nothing by returning it for an AT&T or T-Mobile version, but you will lose the option of using it on Verizon's network.

    Thank you guys.
    In this case there is no deference between CDMA and GSM?
