    No, I dont think the LTE bands are the same.

    LTE bands = small rubber bands in the phone that help it to connect to the tubes and tunnels that = the internet. Its like one giant bank drive through out there.

    Yes. Cash will make it go quicker.

    That's awesome. So they don't sign u up for any kind of plan then? And I can put an AT&T sim in and get 3G? I don't care for lte whilst in the us, just want to be able to get it when I'm back in the uk.

    Please post back if/when you get the Verizon iPhone 5 back home and confirm it works. I make 2-3 trips to the UK each year to visit family, and my daughter will be studying there next year, so I'm really interested in whether it actually works.

    I know the Verizon model supports the LTE bands used in the UK etc., but actual confirmation, rather than "it should work" is always good ;-)

    Thanks ... Mike

    Verizon has confirmed it works. The nano sim slot is unlocked.

    thats not what we're asking. We are asking for confirmation from someone who has taken a verizon iphone 5 to the uk, put an EverythingEverywhere LTE sim card in the phone and got LTE speeds.

    well i work on a cruise ship in the states, and wont return to the uk until feb 2013. Hence I'm hoping someone will have bought a verizon iphone and taken it back to the uk to find out. Even if no one has confirmed it, I am still going to buy the Verizon iphone as I reckon it'll have a higher resale value back in the regardless of if it works with EE out of the box.
