Hi. Yesterday I bought a Verizon iPhone 5s and I was wondering if the phone will work with our carriers in Austria. After a long googling session I can tell you the following:
- it works in Austria
- if you buy a 5s in the states be aware to buy one from Verizon
- buy the A1522 CDMA (not GSM) model this will assure that it works in Europe except with the 2600 mHz band which is currently only used in Germany within tubes
- the Verizon 5s is not locked, it is open for all networks so no net lock 😉
Finally the phone is doing fine on the biggest austrian carrier.
enjoy. Find below an interesting link regarding this topic:
