Updating my verizon cell phone
It wasn’t that long ago that your cell phone might have only used one or two cellular frequencies which meant you could only use your phone on one American network, let alone having any hope of using it in a foreign country.
The good news is that all i Phones (including i Phone X) are technically compatible (it doesn’t matter where you bought your i Phone — from Apple, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon or anywhere else) and most other Smartphones are technically compatible as well (such as Samsung, HTC, Sony etc).
And this is fair, because the carrier has given you a heavily discounted phone, and needs you to stay with them regularly paying a monthly bill for their services (just as the saying goes, there’s no such thing as a free lunch! In contrast, if your phone is then you can use it on another network.
It’s effectively been let of jail, and can be used on another network (either domestic or international).

If you're not a Verizon customer: You'll be billed under your own provider's messaging and data plans.
If one of those isn't listed, the app isn't supported on your device. Support for more new and existing devices will be added regularly.
And we’ll tell you now about a great value UK SIM Card you can buy here in the USA (shipped to your home or office) to use in your cell phone, so you’re connected as soon as you land in London. [If you’ve already done the research and you just want to buy a UK & Europe SIM Card for your cell phone and get it shipped to your home or office, you can just click here and buy it now for the limited reduce price of just .99 (normally .95).] There’s only three things to check to make sure that your cell phone will work in the UK: 1. Different countries use different cellular frequencies for their mobile phone networks.
These frequencies are what your phone uses to connect to the cell towers for your voice calls, texts and data.
If you’re not using an i Phone and you want to double check that your Smartphone is technically compatible there’s a neat website where you can do this: just use the search feature at the Will My Phone Work website and select your brand of phone (eg Samsung) then select the “model”, then the “sub model” and then select “United Kingdom” as the country, then select “3” from the carrier list.
You’ll then see the results about whether your phone is technically compatible: if it is then that’s awesome because it means your phone will work in the UK.
