Long story short, I kind of borked my AT&T galaxy note II. Somehow I managed to delete the stock image and the backup I made just in case this happened, and now, I am using a buggy rom that seems to drop my data connection and I need to toggle airplane mode to get it back! Yes, I can try to use ODIN to flash stock recovery and image, but I am now gun shy. I have bricked this device a few times already. Frankly, I am tired of this. I am not ready to sign up for another contract as this phone is not that old. If I am going to carry two devices, I would like to get the most options I can. Thus, I was going to just flat out buy an iPhone 5 and say the hell with contracts. This brought me to unlocked devices. I was thinking about going to Verizon since they have slightly better coverage inside my new job then AT&T, read, it holds onto a 3g signal a bit better, which should at least get me text messages and push notifications for weather (I am a huge weather junky). Anyway, I learned buying an unlocked iPhone from Apple, LTE will only work on AT&T, but not Verizon. The unlocked verizon phone from apple don't work on CDMA!? then I read something else that kind of confused me. The iPhone verizon sells does work on CDMA, is LTE sim card unlocked and works on AT&T and t-mobile. Now, I have not sure I got things right or if the Verizon iPhone 5 will work on AT&T's LTE network. I DO have LTE service in Denver. There are two towers out here so far (vs verizon's 6) The long and short of it is: Can I get a Verizon iPhone 5 off contract from verizon? Is it unlocked where I can use AT&T and verizon's network (prepaid or chopping up a sim card or replacing a sim card from another phone (or "Upgrading" from another phone)? Swapping sim cards, prepaid for AT&T when I need it? If I was to buy an unlocked iPhone 5, would going to Verizon and buying a device on a month to month contract be the best bet? I basically need data only. I know verizon said I could use a phone and data only if I bought the device flat out? Can I basically by a iPhone 5 from Verizon and use it pretty much on any network? If I go to AT&T, do I lose 4G? Which would be a moot point since it would work on Verizon's LTE 4G network?
