Full Answer

Most countries use the global system for mobile communications. In the United States, AT&T and T-Mobile are well-known networks that operate on GSM. Sprint and Verizon Wireless operate on CDMA. A U.S. cell phone operating on CDMA does not work in South Korea because the frequency bands differ. Cell phones must have tri-band or quad-band capabilities to work internationally. Phones that meet hardware requirements can use international roaming services from a U.S. carrier, which is often costly. They can also be unlocked and used with local SIM cards.
