There is an article today indicated that the Associated Press has discovered that the iPhone 5 from Verizon Wireless is unlocked and will work with an AT&T sim on the AT&T Network.  The article did not state if the phone will also work on other networks.  A Verizon spokesperson has verified that indeed their version of the iPhone 5 is unlocked.

iPhone 5, iOS 6, 32 GB

    To clarify, the GSM portion of the Verizon-model iPhone 5 is indeed currently unlocked, but Verizon only supports it for user with international carriers. Should Verizon discover someone using a Verizon-subsidized iPhone with another US carrier, there could be contractual penalties involved, or Verizon could implement a lock as happened with Sprint and the iPhone 4S.
