So I am from Austria and got a cousin who went to the US as an Au pair. She wants to buy an iPhone 5 and after she gets back (in about 9 months) keep using it in Austria. She asked me which iPhone she should get. LTE is no big thing here, so that's irrelevant. 1) Am I right that you can buy an Verizon iPhone 5 which works (outside of the US) with every GSM Network and that you can buy it Full Price without contract? 2) How much is Full price? (In Austria you can order it in the Apple online store for 679 with is about 880$ (including taxes) 2b) How much are the taxes in California? (I think she is somewhere near palo alto and cupertino) 3) And if she goes to an Verizon Store, will she be able to buy one, because I guess she got no US social Security Number etc. Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions are very welcome and thanks in advance!
