    Hello all,
    USA unlocked don't care about overseas.
    I have read that they are unlocked right out of the box. But LTE don't work on ATT. My question is will buying a unlock make this work, or it's basically a scam for verizon phones.

    When I visit my parents for a weekend or week my verizon service is basically a paper weight. I wanted to get a AT&T prepay so I can get calls and data.

    I don't want to pay $100+ for something that will not unlock all.
    Thanks.

    It could be that AT&T doesn't have LTE in the area you're at... Verizon 5/5S are unlocked out of the box... The 5 doesn't have all of AT&Ts frequency bands in it... The 5S does...

    My parents have hotspot art and they get AT&T LTE.
    So they are totally unlocked, just 5 does not support LTE on AT&T but the 5S does. Nice.
    So my wife's 5S I should be able to just put a AT&T SIM in and get LTE on AT&T.

    Have you tried using your folks sim card to see if that activates the phone? That'd be the easiest research you could do and wouldn't cost anything.

    Would have tried that. But they don't have the nano sim. Micro and standard.

    Give me the IMEI no in PM and i check for you if the phone is unlocked or not. Regards
    It's never advisable to give your IMEI to someone you do not know.

    Just noticed that my iphone 5 was model md659ll/a and Apple replaced nd144ll/a. Are both models unlocked or did they lock them with the ND.
    I got a h2o sim and can't get to activate.
