I would like to buy a Nexus 5 from Swappa.

The united states version and the United Kingdom version are different.

- The Italian N5 is the same as the British/UK version. (Model: D821)
- The USA version is another model D820.

You can use both N5 versions in Italy for 2G and 3G networks.

BUT if you want to use LTE/4G networks you must choose the D821 variant from UK/Europe/etc. NOT the D820 variant from USA.
