I live in Europe but am returning to the USA for a few weeks. I intend to buy an iPhone 5 for use on both sides of the pond. Since Apple has launched an unlocked GSM phone, I need to know which phone will give me the greater speed and flexibility: the Verizon phone purchased from Apple or the unlocked GSM phone. Is LTE even a possibility with either phone?

Thanks for any advice and analysis.

Hi everybody!
I'm european too and have a great doubt: we understood that Verizon's iphone 5 is GSM factory unlocked but will I be able to use GSM LTE services in Europe?

Here in Italy frequencies are channel 1,3,5 for LTE networks so it should work (on paper)...I talked to a Verizon assistant through their site and he said that 4G service is limited to their network. Is it to be believed?
