    Hi,
    I purchased an iphone in the philippines. I will be relocating to the US in a couple of months and was wondering if it was possible to use this phone over there? What do I need to do to make it compatible in the states?


    Thanks :)

    I take it you're currently on a GSM network?

    If so, try using another carriers sim (other than your own) in the phone.

    If you can successfully make a phone call, the phone should be unlocked.

    yes it's possible. As it is likely GSM, you'll want to check out AT&T or T-Mobile for possible carrier choices.

    Welcome to America!
