I have an iPhone 5S, and two of my other family members have a 5C and 5, we want to switch to TMobile for unlimited data, and we know that TMobile will let you bring in your own phones. On the other hand Verizon is a CDMA and Tmobile is a GSM, but according to another article on the forums here, all LTE smart phones from Verizon have GSM capabilities as said here, "All of Verizon Wireless' LTE phones have to be unlocked when sold in order to comply with the terms of their recent acquisition of some 700MHz spectrum." So what I want to know is, can we get Tmobile SIM cards for the 5S 5C and 5 and use them with Tmobile, and is Tmobile still paying ETFs?

I did exactly this. I have an iPhone 5S, was on Verizon. I tried the 7 Day Test drive and was convinced. Since, I purchases my iPhone 5S at full retail from the Apple store and I was no longer under a contract, I was able to get a new SIM from Tmobile and everything worked great.
