To the best of my knowledge the unlocked VZW iPhone version works on AT&T Wireless.

That is awesome.  How would I go about getting my hands on an unlocked Verizon iPhone?

The 5s will run you anywhere from $649-$849 depending on the storage capacity.

 

The 5c is slightly cheaper at $549 up to $649 depending on the storage capacity.

Both Verizon iPhones are fully unlocked and will work on AT&T's LTE network as well as overseas where available. Smiley Happy

Just to clarify Evandela, if I was in the market for a new 5S I could purchase either the Verizon or AT&T variant and they would both work the same?

 My understanding is that the VZW model works on AT&T, while AT&T model doesn't work on VZW. So the recommendation I heard was that if one's paying the full prиce for an iPhone one should get the VZW version.

You're right, I do remember reading that. Kind of funny how it works one way and not the other. That's good to know because my next phone will probably be a 5s. Should be easier to decide on one since it no longer has to be AT&T-specific. Smiley Happy

The att version is sans a cdma radio where the Verizon has all 3 radios installed in it.
