What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

I first went to the T-Mobile store and found they, and most others, were only selling the S4 in white - which I did not want - and I did not want the form factor or incremental $250 for the S5. So back to Amazon, and the 'no warranty' version in black. I purchased two, one for my wife. Shipping was quite rapid, which was important, and everything was in good shape. Until - I went on my first business trip and found that the S4 was not charging properly - I has purchased a couple of extra batteries - which was quite fortunate.
I then found out what 'no warranty' meant. Amazon told me to call Samsung USA, and they said the phone was not US manufactured - it looked like UK from the numbers. I did not spend too much time trying to contact the UK line, since it seemed useless to do so. Amazon contacted the seller, who offered to take the phone back. In the mean time, it started to charge again - and I figured the repair cost would not exceed the effort to rebuild the phone - and a replacement would probably also be no warranty. It seems the phone does not charge for a while if you run it down completely. There have also been some issues with seeing WiFi on some occasions (restarting the phone solved that one).
Net - a great phone, with some issues. If you don't mind not getting your preferred color - go to the carrier store and don't buy a product without a warranty.
Love the fact vendor sent NEW phone. Unlock instruction label would be nice.
Try this SE Asian Sim card. No guarantee this is the right activation: http://www.onesimcard.com/cell-phone-rates/philippines/ . Good luck. Wish I found it earlier. Hope this help the next guy snag a deal. (This is what I mean. If Amazon require vendor to do the research, it would have more sealed sale.)
Cannot say more because I cannot open it without penalty. And because IT NEEDS a Southeast Asia sim to activate and use for 5 minutes before switching to US sim. Vendor should provide such sim, even if charge extra. That would make this order perfect. Brand New but I cannot use until I locate a Southeast Asia sim card.
And does not state that International version does not have 4G LTE support. After paying a premium price, I would like to have 4G LTE support and Southeast Asia sim card together. Amazon product description too skimpy to make a fair decision so there would be no need to return a purchase other than for defective or mis-represented items.
Amazon should make this a rule for their vendor to provide adequate information - as a Quality Process Improvement.for a better Client Experience .
