Hello,

I have one question: Will a iPhone 5 bought in the US be working without problems in EU? More accurate in Denmark.

Thanks :)

From what I understand, Verizon iPhone 5's are unlocked, which means you should be able to use it in your own country if you got a nano SIM card

At the iPhone hacks section.
What about the use of 4G/LTE? I know that the LTE network in Denmark is using 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz.

Here is the translated information regardint the Danish LTE network: http://translate.google.dk/translate?sl=da&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=da&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http://www.3.dk/nyheder/4g-lte/
It will be able to connect to the 1800 mhz, but not the 2600.
So you should be able to still pull LTE with it.

Model A1429
(CDMA model)


1 (2100 MHz)

3 (1800 MHz)

5 (850 MHz)

13 (700c MHz)

25 (1900 MHz)

When a LTE network is built using 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz, what is to be considered? Why use 2 frequencies?

Applejuiced and I are debating this on multiple threads now.

If you visit http://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/ you'll see Denmark not listed as a supported country. Maybe there is a technical limitation or maybe it just isn't officially supported. Either way I would caution you that it might not work.

Edit: it will work for 3G and HSPA+ though.

According to www.3.dk, their LTE network is the only LTE network in all of Denmark and it will go live september 28th. Maybe Denmark isn't listed because the network isn't live yet?

That could be it too.
If there is no lte yet then that's why it's not listed yet. Is that carrier carrying the iPhone officially at the moment?
The iPhone 5 hasn't been release in Denmark yet. It is being release september 28th.
