It should work on the cricket wireless network prepaid.  ATT also will work.  Tmobile will not have internet properly.  The rest not likely.

It may be the carrier in the US. As USMC reported the ATT network and affiliates should work. Verizon and T Mobile have their own shebang and you have to set your phone up to those standards then change them back when you return.

I've always had good luck with H2O wireless.

as far as I know both att and t-mobile use gsm

with the 4 bands 800, 900, 1800 and 1900 on the phone it should work

with a usa sim, even with a ph sim if roaming was enabled before leaving ph

I don't understand the workings of these systems but we were in US in November. Have an Iphone6s that was purchased, unlocked in the States. I bought a T Mobile chip and it didn't work. Called T Mobile and they wanted to set up my phone differently, changing my settings. I then picked up an ATT Sim and plugged it right in...all was fine.

My Samsung (purchased at SM Consolacion) worked fine in the US with an AT&T sim.

Chip ????????

T-Mobile use GSM e.i. sim cards

Are you sure it was T-mobile ?

sprint & verizon use cdma, I do not know how they identify the phones

Tmobile will work for voice and text.  Not with Internet or it will be spotty.

Smokey,  

I wasn't being a smart ass when I told you to buy and IPhone that will work in both countries without any problem without Chinese (spy on you chip sets).

My recommendation is quit trying to buy crap phones.

Unless the phone has 1700 2100 it will be spotty at best.  Most do not.
