    I have the A1429-model iPhone 5, how can I know if its a CMDA or GSM version?

    EDIT: Its a GSM. On the box it only supports LTE bands 1, 3 and 5.

    What carrier is the phone on?

    CDMA: Verizon Wireless, Sprint, MetroPCS, Cricket, and U.S. Cellular.
    GSM : AT&T and T-Mobile.

    I don't know if this would be the same for outside of the united states but I don't see why it wouldn't.

    Yeah I am 99% sure that it is a GSM iPhone.

    GeekBench might or been mistaken because that model # if for both GSM and CDMA iPhone 5's.

    iPhone 5 - A1428: GSM
    iPhone 5 - A1429: GSM and CDMA

    GSM, but you would not be able to use LTE because of the model type. I found a website that better explains it. Source
    I'm not sure if your network has LTE available and if it really matters to you as a user, but its better to be aware of it.

    Im cant use LTE in the US. But however I can use LTE here in Norway when Telenor opens the 1800 Mhz LTE network. Currently its only 2600 Mhz.
