    Hello, first of all I apologize for my not so good english.

    In Argentina we use GSM network. So if I buy a BAD ESN iPhone 4S in the US:
    1. Can I use it in Argentina with my SIM CARD?
    2. The SIM is unlocked outside US or should i have to unlock with Gevey?

    Thanks for your answers

    Could be wrong here but I think ESN is with CDMA. So the iPhone 4S is locked to Verizon or Sprint.

    The sim is locked on a cdma phone so you would need the cdma gevey to unlock it
