    It's still the same price you'd pay as if you're buying an unlocked 5s.

    The T-Mobile contract free model is unlocked as long as you purchase it from Apple directly. This means you can insert your nano-SIM card and you should be able to just turn it on and follow the onscreen instructions to activate the 5s.

    I just came to know that Verizon full price deal is also unlocked phone and it is more better in having lte bands then t-mobile. Is that true? Verizon is gsm or cdma? If it is CDMA then can I use it for india?

    The Verizon model is both. It uses CDMA for voice and I believe SMS/MMS while it is on Verizon's network. However it also has the same GSM radio in the T-Mobile model that it will use for everything while on a GSM carrier. If I remember correctly the Verizon model has the same LTE bands as the T-Mobile model. Also, yes the Verizon model is unlocked and should work as well in India.

    Where & how does one buy the *Verizon* unlocked/contract-free 5S? Doesn't show up on Apple Store website, nor on Verizon's site.

    I believe you have to purchase one in a Apple retail store. I'm quite certain you can ask to buy the 5s "Device only" and without service at full retail price.

    eBay is another good option and in some cases might be cheaper than Apples full retail price, provided one finds a good seller. There are good sellers out there, people just need to do a little research to find the right deal.

    Verizon model is unlocked, however you have to buy it directly from Verizon at full retail if you don't want a contract, if you don't plan on using the phone on Verizons network I would just pick up the T-Mobile variant if you are willing to pay full price. You can also select it on Apples site, if you don't have a upgrade it will ring up at full retail price.
