Hi. I own an iPhone 5, which I bought in November 2012. My plan is with Verizon. I'm currently traveling around the world and in Chile at the moment. I'm quite surprised how modern chile is compared to the rest of Latin America. I'll be going to Argentina and Brazil next. I won't be going back until next year, when the iPhone 7 is released stateside


But anyways, I'm really tempted to upgrade my iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6s, and would like to buy one here in Santiago the capital of chile.

I would like to buy a 6s model compatible with Verizon cdma network for when I get back home next year. I was wondering which model number the Verizon iPhone is that I should buy? For any Verizon iPhone 6s owners, can you please help me out?

Hey guys. I just wanted to update. I went to a local apple reseller and phone stores here in the capital of Santiago ready to buy an iPhone 6s. They don't have an official Apple Store.

Anyways I did the math at the store and the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are on average $240-$250 more compared to USA price after taxes.

Well I ended up not getting one. If it were closer or exactly like the prices listed by Apple Stores in USA after taxes, I would have pulled the trigger.

Not a small difference.
