I am moving from Spain to the USA, and want to know if my iPhone SE will work.

I am an American that has been living for the last few years in Spain. I have an iPhone se and I am going to be moving back to the US in the next few months. I would like to know if it will work like normal if I bring it back to the USA with me. Can anyone please help? Thanks!!

    iPhones sold in Spain will only be compatable with GSM Networks. This is largely in part because Europe only uses GSM Technology. Your iPhone will only be compataible with GSM Networks such as AT&T & T-Mobile. CDMA Networks such as Verizon and Sprint are NOT COMPATIBLE. Before you leave Spain ask your carrier if your iPhone is Carrier Unlocked. You'll want to unlock it so it will work with other Sim Cards.

    Check the back of your Phone: if it says A1662 then it will only work on GSM Carriers such as AT&T, T-Mobile, etc
    if it says A1723 then it will work will GSM & CDMA Carriers such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile
