Hi there...

If you have the means to check if the IMEI has not been reported lost/stolen, it would be the best thing to do... Sometimes phones were reported and they won't work... Always think twice when buying used things online...

The A1532 GSM model is the only one you want. The GSM A1532 iPhone 5c model, which is compatible with LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 13, 17, 19, 20, and 25, (but not CDMA EV-DO), is intended for North American markets, (AT&T and T-Mobile in the US; Bell, Rogers, Telus, and affiliate brands in Canada.

Camilo has a point - I can quote all sorts of information about the band that the phone works on (can get this off the phone companies website), but if that IMEI is reported as stolen, it really does not matter what the band is because it will not work.


Nice job Camilo

This holds true if you purchase the phone from a seller in the U.S. or Canada. If the iPhone is coming from another country, there won't be any record of the device reported lost or stolen on North American databases. CWTA's IMEI status checking tool caters to phones reported lost or stolen within Canada and the IMEI database applies to phones reported lost, stolen or blacklisted in North America.

The CWTA recommends consumers always acquire wireless devices from a trusted and reputable source.
