My cousin has asked me to get an unlocked iPhone 5 for her and her husband. We are all Korean (I was born and raised in the US, while she and her husband were born in Korea and currently lives in Kazakhstan). I have googled and read through different threads here, and I'm looking for confirmation on the info I've read so far about the A1429 CDMA version: * It is GSM unlocked. * It uses LTE bands compatible with the ones in Europe and Asia. The big question is this: if I buy a "device only" A1429 CDMA version in the US, for my cousin and her husband, will they be able to utilize LTE in Korea? (There is no LTE in Kazakhstan IIRC, so that's not an issue.) It sounds like the answer will be no, but I haven't found any forum post or webpage saying that for certain. If there is anyone here who bought the A1429 CDMA version in the US and is currently using it overseas, I would appreciate if you could reply. This all presupposes that I can even buy a "device only" A1429 CDMA version at my Apple Store. If this ends up not being an option, my cousin and her husband will have to wait for the official unlocked version, which I understand will come in mid-November. But which official unlocked version will come out in the US? Will it be based on the A1428 GSM version or the A1429 GSM version? Any news about this?
