    Did you buy your At&t iPhone 5 from apple or At$t store? i ask cause there's a margin of 57 dollars between them.

    My friends confused cause at apple they're saying its not unlocked but unlockable. Same thing at best buy and the service providers. does anyone know?

    hey Parin11,

    I am planning on buying an iPhone5 from US, I use Vodafone IN sim in India. So should i go for Verizon iPhone or should I get AT&T iPhone. And I am still not quite clear. When u said better go for AT&T, is unlocking then required?

  • nunnarkat Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi Aditya30


    It depends on your choice of using 4G in India, if you buy AT&T, you must get it unlocked first, due to different frequecies you may not be able to use 4G in India, on the other hand speaking of Verizon, you need not unlock and can use 4G, I had trouble with Verizon in Andhra Pradesh with Airtel, I always had no service, Vodafone just worked fine.


    Hope this helps

    hi nunnarkat,

    thanks for replying. So Verizon iPhone just works like that when Vodafone IN sim is inserted? And also how did u get nano sim? Did u trim your current sim or got a new from Airtel or Vodafone respectively?

  • nunnarkat Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi Aditya30,


    Vodafone is working fine even after upgrading to 6.01, I have just trimmed by normal sim to nano sim, I guess Airtel and Vodafone are offering nano sims now, if not you can order a nano sim cutter for ebay as low as 200 bucks.


    Hope this helps

    Thanxx.. And for the problem that Parin11 had, if i dont have a Verizon SIm will i be stuck with a phone without use in india?

  • Aditya30 Level 1 (0 points)

    Also is there some carrier specific apps on the phone? or does it look just like any normal international variant of the iPhone?

  • nunnarkat Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes there is an issues with some networks, to my knowledge Vodafone and Idea are working fine, I had Verizon sim to update the cellular settings it updated but I had issues with Airtel, there are reports that after updating Airtel works fine, but mine never worked.


    There are no carrier specific applications neither in AT&T nor in Verizon, I have no problem whatsoever in both the phones.


    I would recommend you to by AT&T its trusted and works with all networks, you can easily get it permanent factory unlocked. 4G is damm costly in India am very happy with 3G.

  • Aditya30 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanxx a lot nunnarkat. And lastly do you have any idea where can i get my AT&T iPhone permanently unlocked?

  • nunnarkat Level 1 (0 points)

    I have used, I guess they have closed but they have sister associate called its reliable.
