Apple customers have a great opportunity to easily switch their carrier on iPhone 5S and 5c — but in the United States only. The three major mobile operators will work on your new smartphone model because it supports a larger range of radio spectrum than previous iPhones. Here is how U.S. customers can change their iPhone 5S / 5c carrier without unlocking or jailbreaking.
If you live in the U.S.A. and have either an iPhone 5S or an iPhone 5c you can easily switch carriers between T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T.
