Default Does a US iPhone work worldwide?

Just wondering if an iPhone bought in the US will work worldwide or do iPhones have specific bands they are compatible with?

I am asking because iPhones bought locally here in Dubai don't have FaceTime due to apparent security reasons (that's what I found out at least).

If it's an unlocked GSM model, I would expect yes for basic 2G/3G. You may not have LTE support - there are model variations with support for different LTE bands.

Some iPhones are totally global, like no variants are available they actually have all the spectrum you could want... I belive that the 4S was such a phone... lets check over at gsm arena:


Single variant:
i3GS - no LTE: http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_3gs-2826.php
i4 - no LTE: http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_4-3275.php
i4s - no LTE: http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_4s-4212.php

Multi Variant:
i5 LTE - http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_5-4910.php
GSM A1429, GSM A1428, CDMA A1429, the A1428 has best odds of working on 3G among the three.
i5s - http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_5s-5685.php too many variants lol
i6 http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_6-6378.php
i6s http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_6s-7242.php
bunch too

funny enough .. the new iPad Pro 9.7 is actually a global model I wonder if you can share internet from it to the phone
http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_ipad_pro_9_7-7984.php


Just look up what are the LTE bands in your locations of use
and what are the 3g
it should correlatea... its build in such way that in many cases if it supports that region's 3g it also works with that region LTE .. again, most cases, not all.

I'm using my Tmobile iPhone in Honduras right now. Works fine, though Tmobile only allows 3g roaming.
