The Verizon one should work fine as that is unlocked. The sprint one however you will need to get unlocked. You can try one of those IMEI unlocking sites like officialunlocks.com but not sure if they can do an iPhone 5 on sprint.

Get it unlocked first before 'not paying the bill'. Once you are in your home country their network unlock will be permanent. Though you'll have a hard time getting a new sprint account
