    Hello. I am poised to buy an iPhone 5 in the US online Apple store. When I put the phone in the cart, it is described as part number MD293LL/A.

    Is there someone knowledgeable that can confirm that this part number will include the GSM model A1429 technology, which has LTE Bands 1,3, and 5?

    I need to be sure before making such a large investment.

    Thanks.

    If you are buying it factory unlocked full price from the US apple store online then yes it is the AT&T GSM model.

    AT&T model?

    And the AT&T model is this model A1429? I am exporting it, not using it in the US. Hence my question.

    Actually the AT&T model I have is the A1428.
    The a1429 model is the verizon one.
    So if you order the unlocked one from US you will not receive the 1429 model.

    In order to get the A1429 model which is the CDMA/GSM Apple unlocked iPhone 5 you'd have to get it directly from the :apple: retail store and that supports:

    Im not sure.
    Even if it has those LTE bands available Apple has to certify each carrier for LTE before they enable that feature on the phone when connected to their network.
    So you will have to ask your carrier.
    If they officially sell the iphone 5 and works with their LTE network then most likely Apple approved the LTE use on that network.
    Is not as simple as if it has the LTE bands available it will work.
