Using a US Samsung S8 with Virgin

Hi,

My partner is moving to the UK from the US and would like to carry on using her US bought Samsung S8 when she gets here, would a UK Virgin SIM work in it if she got it unlocked from the US network?

Many thanks

Re: Using a US Samsung S8 with Virgin

It will need to cover these bands for Virgin at present  (4G is LTE)

1800MHz (2G & 4G)

2100MHz (3G)

2600MHz (4G)

Hello

The other problem she may have as well is that not all phones supplied in the USA have an actual SIM slot, if that is the case then it will not be possible.
