  • 1700/2100 MHz (3G / 4G or LTE depending on location)
  • 1900 MHz (2G or 3G / 4G depending on location)
  • 850 MHz (2G)

You can check whether your phone is compatible here.

  1. Click Check Compatibility
  2. Enter the US ZIP code of where you're travelling to (you can Google "New York ZIP code") and click Verify
  3. Choose your phone brand and model
  4. It'll tell you whether the USA SIM will work for you.

How do I know if my device is unlocked?

If you bought your device outright, it's most likely unlocked!

If you're unsure, the best way to find out is to call your Aussie network provider and ask! They'll be able to unlock it for you too. This might incur a fee! 🤔
