Can I buy a factory unlocked iPhone 5 and use it with any service provider in the UAE?

I already bought an iPhone 5 unlocked but I'm not sure it is going to work in the UAE. I've heard about some issues regarding different frequencies. How do I know if it will work?

    The iPhone 5 is GSM-unlocked. That means that CDMA (other frequency) carriers won't work on that phone, even though it is unlocked. Check the carrier you most like and see if it is a GSM network. If so, it will work perfectly.
