Hi, I'm travelling to San Francisco next week. I can buy an iPhone 5s for around $350 cheaper than in NZ, but I'm confused as to whether it will work in NZ. An unlocked iPhone from the US Apple Store is model A1533 (GSM).

An unlocked iPhone in NZ is model Model A1530.

There's a table here: http://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/ that describes what LTE band is supported. Is it just simply a matter of checking whether the A1533 will work on at least one of the same LTE bands for the A1530?

I'm with Telecom XT.

Hope someone can help.

we use LTE 1800MHz here. maybe additional 700MHz in the future for non urban areas.

so in my un-expert opinion the american phone is better (due to the 700MHz support)!

You are confusing the US 700Mhz band plan LTE with what will be used here in NZ and they are not the same
