My cousin gave me an MD294C/A model to sell for her which she used when she was in Canada. It is factory unlocked. When I put my AT&T sim card in there, it worked fine, it recognized my AT&T carrier and I got the LTE indicator by the signal bars and when making a test call from my home phone to this iphone with my SIM it worked fine, so I believe the answer is YES!

I realize this thread is old. However Brad if you are out there, where did you get thet model info from? I am trying to match up information on that list. Ex:

Apple iPhone 5 16GB White Verizon MD655LL/A <--- this model to A1429 etc, etc for iPhone model identification purposes.


Thank you!
