    You'll have to cut the card down to fit.

    Yes it will work. The iPhone 5 covers all gsm bands, including 1900 which is what tmobile uses which is why they wanted you to get a tmobile compatible phone. You may not get fast data, depending on which frequencies they use for it, but you will at least get basic EDGE or 3G.

    It works, no jailbreak or unlocking required, just put in the sim card and go Verizon iPhone 5's come factory unlocked.
