    Will I be able to get LTE on Gsm networks?I go to Canada and was wondering if Verizon customers can finally get LTE in Canada and this one is unlocked like the last one?

    Looking at the LTE Specs that Apple has posted up on their website, it does look like it will work. Apple - iPhone 5 - View countries with supported LTE networks.

    The 5S & 5C hardware will be the same for AT&T and Verizon... and T-Mobile too... as well as Bell (including Virgin), Rogers (including Fido) andTelus (including Koodo).

    Thank you so much.It know it know the Iphone 5 didn't work on LTE in Canada bumped you down to 3g.Is the Verizon 5S going to be unlocked last the 5 so I can just pop a Canada sim card in and that is it.

    This is huge if you buy a phone and decided to switch carriers

    Yes, provided you are buying the Verizon iPhone 5s. AT&T's iPhone 5s will not work on Verizon's CDMA network side.

    You may still need to get Verizon to register any different SIM before it will work. They need to associate SIM number w/ the IMEI or MEID number of your phone. Otherwise, it can look like thief trying to use stolen phone. I think the days when you can just pop another SIM and go may be over.

    They have to do this even when changing one VZW SIM for another VZW SIM, and they have to activate international coverage if you plan to use your phone w/ your SIM in another country. I know this from experience - both in US and in using VZW phone w/ my SIM in UK. I have not tried to use local SIMs when traveling outside the US...

    Those who know more than I do -- please correct / complete what I missed!

    Verizon's 5S will come SIM unlocked for use with any carrier GSM SIM card including international SIM cards. Therefore one should just be able to pop in a different SIM card and go.

    This is good that a Verizon iPhone can go full blown LTE even on T-Mobile network.
