    Default Will my phone work in US?

    Will my prepaid Altice (formerly Orange) phone with a SIM card work in the US?

    Yes, you have to buy a roaming package, roaming service is very expensive, if you are rich you can use it. Its better to buy a prepaid simcard in usa, cheaper and you will get more kb for internet than your Altice roaming service. Mae sure that your phone is unlocked.

    Do you want to know with your current Altice SIM card or with a SIM card purchased in USA?

    Any info is helpful... didn't think about buying one in the US previously but that would be a better idea I take it..so long as my phone is unlocked?

    Another option would be to get a claro line and roam for free in the US

    I used my Altice phone in the US on 2 short trips. Turned out to be extremely expensive and I was continually running out of minutes and data and needing to recharge it. I will never do that again!!!

    Some may depend on what phone you purchase, what frequency it supports and which carrier you want to use in the US. Many GSM phones have support for multiple frequencies. Your best bet is T-Mobile or AT&T as Verizon & Sprint are CDMA. However 4G is what you will want and so using the make & model of your phone you can look it up on this web site to see with which carriers it is compatible:

    I use this and it works great. No additional charge for calls and data. Just comes off your regular DR plan.
