I have a Samsung Galaxy J3 phone with a spring SIM card installed in the back.  Does anyone know if this phone will work in the Philippines or should I just buy a new cell phone in the Philippines.  Going for the long term.

They are sold here.  If you bring one make sure it is unlocked and then just buy sim card here.


Thanks Chuck! It was meant to read a sprint SIM card and not a spring.

Steve & Myrlita:
As they said, as long as it's not locked to one carrier. Also make sure your phone is quad band. Here, they use 900/1800 mhz. In the US, it's 850/1900 mhz. Most newer phones are ok but some older ones no so much. The big 3 here are Smart, Sun, & Globe. Which one will be best for you will depend on where you live.

I don't know anything about phones.
how do you know if a phone is locked?
can they be unlocked?
