Australian here. We use different LTE bands to the US. So the LTE part of the phone will not work. However for 3G and voice you would be good to go.


A good plan is Amaysim unlimited or Kogan prepaid. I use amaysim personally=$40 a month for unlimited australian calls/texts and 4gb data a month as well as cheap rates for intl calls and texts if you add extra credit.
