I'm a total cell phone newbie; esp when it comes to the latest smart phones. I've been thinking of upgrading my older Verizon cell phone (I have basic Verizon cell phone service now, in rural SC) to one that could be used on 4G locally and also internationally when I go to Europe next summer. I need to be able to send and receive text messages to/from my wife, and also to be able to call from some place in Europe to some other place in Europe occasionally. I also want to be able to go online and check email, maybe use a train timetable app once in a while, etc.
I know what it means to buy a "quad band unlocked" phone. I know that I can buy prepaid cell phones and/or sim cards as I travel around Europe.
But I am also interested in just what international capabilities I'd be buying, if any, if I buy an iphone5 here in the US instead.
When I visited my local Verizon store, the sales guy told me that the iphone5 is a true international phone. Using the list of stuff I've given above as the list of stuff I want to be able to do, my question is: is he right, or is he blowing smoke at me!?
I am aware there are many other issues at work here in deciding what to upgrade to, what plans to sign up for, etc. Right now, what I want to know is: if I buy an iphone5, am I buying a cell phone I can use the way I want to once I'm in Europe and could my wife use her basic cell phone from the US to call and text me while I'm there?

Lumia 620 is affordable, which also helps it to take market share away from Android. Competition is good and results in better phones for all of us.

Lol exposed for the typical Android troll that you are, trying to start a flame war between WP8 and iOS users, except it doesn't work as its and WP8 fans have no time to troll each other lol. Keep on trying, lol loser behavior.
iPhone is best mobile because is different so Think Different.(steve jobs)

[deleted post]Lol obviously a troll only out to provoke. One agrees with him, even encourages him to use the phone he likes, and even compliments the phone, and still he is insecure. No wonder your comments were deleted. Loser behavior.
[deleted post]Lol you mistake me for a troll. I like iPhone 5, and you are certainly welcome to love the Lumia 920 an excellent phone. My brother also prefers the Lumia 920.
Even tho iPhone is best for me it may not be best for you. That's my point all this while. Enjoy your Lumia it's a great phone. Also, no need to troll, use better language.
[deleted post]Forget about your Lumia. This is the best:
