    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

    Yes, either a verizon i5 or a full price device only at&t iphone 5.
    Not Sprint and not an AT&T i5 bought under contract cause those are still locked to the carrier.

    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?

    Im not 100% sure.
    Not sure if it uses both at once or it can pick either one to use.
    You will have to contact your carrier for details and to make sure it will work or not.

    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?

    Do they sell the 4S currently as an official carrier?

    I can't read the webpage, but the iPhone 5 is listed on that network (presumably coming soon).

    The LTE network will then work with any LTE phone with 1800 MHz or 2600 MHz so iPhone 5 A1429 model will work.

    Buy in Europe ;)

    Or buy the Verizon model.

    AT&T is A1428.
