    Is iPhone 5 sprint a locked cdma phone and cannot be used to any other carrier anywhr in the world except US sprint or is it a gsm/cdma and cannot be unlocked unlike att and verizon? Reason being, i see some i5 phones sold as sprint unlock on ebay.
    Also wanted to know, if verizon unlocked phone which are available comes with gsm/cdma support? So i will be able to use any carrier in any country, be it cdma/gsm carrier?

    verizion is unlocked but I do not know about Sprint
    But Verizion can not be used on Sprint as far as I heard
    even so it is the identical phone.

    Online sites like ebay, sprint phones are available at much cheaper rates than att or verizon phones.

    verizion's iPhone 5 are not locked
    It all depend on where you go and if you want to use LTE there
    Sprint and verizion are the same exact phones
    Looks like you already have a Sprint phone?

    The Verizon 5 works on AT&T, but not with the LTE. Also would work worldwide, but with some limitations.

    A factory unlocked Sprint 5 would not work domestically, but would worldwide, also with some network specific limitations.
