Verizon iPhone 5 on us cellular

Is it possible to use a Verizon iPhone 5 on Us Cellular?

Is there any internal hardware differences between the Verizon and Us Cellular iPhone?

Us Cellular has the best coverage in our area. They also offer 4 lines with 10 gigs of data for $140 if you own your phones or buy them outright. There is nothing wrong with our 4 verizon iPhone 5.

I would like to some how use them on us cellular so I don't have to buy new phones and also lower our bill to $140/ month

Since Verizon and US Cellular are both CDMA carriers, you will have to get the iPhone's IMEI into US Cellular's database before it will activate. If you can find a flashing service that can do that, you might be able to activate it with a new US Cellular SIM card.

You might ask this question over at Howard Forums and see if anyone there has used a Verizon iPhone 5 on US Cellular. The hardware should be fully compatible, but getting the IMEI number in the database and getting all of the network settings correct will be the problem.
