You know that overseas they're mostly GSM carriers, right? Not CDMA, which is mainly a US thing?

I don't believe that they're unlocked immediately. I think the phone has to be active on a line for a while, and then they'll be unlocked. But I could be mistaken. I think they may be GSM unlocked, but not CDMA unlocked.

China isn’t. It’s cdma.

Be careful of the bands required. I believe Apple makes a specific iPhone just for China because of the LTE/CDMA bands required.

Yep. I know. I usually try to get a model that has both GSM and CDMA for resale but this year I know I’ll be overseas some so would like to be able to use my phone while I’m there.

Might want to look at Verizon too, I believe their Verizon CDMA bands are different than Sprint.

Live tracking mine via UPS from work. It’s getting closer and closer to my house and I’m not there.
