    Will the iPhone work in Europe??

    I'm going to Italy next week and was wondering if it will work?
    I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and I am hearing conflicting answers.

    Thanks.

    Verizon will unlock your phone for international use but the phone should work in italy on the verizon network or just unlock it if Italy offers a network that uses the CDMA Network so you don't pay as much for calls..etc

    As to my knowledge, most of Europe is using GSM. So a CDMA handset wouldn't work. At least the GSM iOS6 version installed properly on my iPad2 and I'm in Germany.

    as far as I know that is true as well that most use GSM.. I just did some asking around and there is no CDMA in italy BUT I am told the verizon iphone 4S is dual GSM and CDMA but apparently verizon rents out phones that would work in italy for iphone 4 users if you go to them and ask

    I guess I'll just have to go ask someone at Verizon and see...Maybe a good time to upgrade to the 4S..

    When does the iPhone 5 come out??

    no one can answer that, but I would GUESS that apple will release another iphone with ios 6 in october, again anything about release dates is pure speculation and apple might not even release one with ios 6. But personally I would not get the 4S

    Let us know what verizon says

    as far as I know (not really sure) but most networks overseas are on GSM which require a sim card, Like Unleashed stared above version does offer world phones which uses a sim card to be able to use overseas.
    Thanks

    I am not sure whether Verizon iPhone 4 would work in Italy.If the verizon is available in italy then it would definitely work in Italy.

    Thanks for the replys everyone. Here's what I found out and did....

    I went to the Verizon store early this am when they opened and found a guy who knew what the scoop is.

    The iPhone 4 will not work in Europe because they are on the GSM format as has been mentioned.
    The 4S will work because it has both the GSM and our format.

    I ended up getting the 4S as I was elegible for the upgrade and will be giving the 4 to one of my employees who has been wanting an upgraded phone.

    I got a global data plan good for the time I will be overseas which costs $25/ 100mB of data; $0.50 to send a text and $0.05 to receive one and $0.99 / minute to call back home which I don't forsee doing.

    The salesguy showed me how to turn off my phone data so that i won't be getting outrageous bills when I come back. Tha way i can check emails and vm's once a day or stop by an internet cafe and get free wifi..

    Thanks again.
