My uncle wants to leave Sprint and his iPhone 4S for an iPhone 5 with Verizon or AT&T. He's going to Italy this summer and wants to be able to use his new iPhone with a local SIM while abroad. I know a subsidized Verizon iPhone 5 can be used by default with a GSM SIM. I'm leaning towards having him go with Verizon for this reason alone. Does anyone know offhand how much the cheapest plan would be for him on Verizon? I tried looking on their site and I'm confused by the results. The lowest price it quoted me was $100 a month without taxes and surcharges and that doesn't seem right.
