Hi there, I have had an iPhone 5 for the last almost 3 years, yikes, as I work on cruise ships. I was happy to learn my iPhone was unlocked due to the Verizon/LTE spectrum agreements, but I only got crappy 3G from some of my sim cards when I traveled internationally... apparently due to the bands. I am software smart but hardware stupid. So its getting slower, etc... and I finally broke the screen by an unlucky drop, even with a case. Time to buy a new one, which is frustrating because I know there is a new one around the corner. None the less, about to travel to Spain and Germany for a month, and I will want to buy a sim card there. Should I buy the unlocked version from Apple, or the Verizon again from Verizon? I am sure it's also unlocked per se, but... will its bands work better with Europe and Australia's 4G better than my 5 did? If I buy the unlocked version and pay full price, will it still function perfectly with Verizon who is still my main carrier? I know I need to just wait til September but I can't... or won't lol. Thoughts/ideas??
