I currently have a locked Sprint iPhone 5c from the US, which I'd like to take on a two-month trip to Australia.
I gather that I can unlock my phone by calling Sprint, then buy a local sim card and swap it in once I arrive.
I'm having a difficult time getting accessible information about compatibility. Will all features of the phone (talk, text, data, etc.) still work with the right prepaid sim card? Or are some components of the iPhone 5c incompatible with other networks?
Edit: Thanks for the help so far! I do indeed have a model A1456. I'm hearing from choster that I should be okay as long as the SIM provider uses LTE band 1,3, or 5 (pretty sure I can figure out how to look that up) and from Johns-305 that it needs to be dual-band (am I okay here?). I'm getting slightly conflicting advice; can someone clarify matters for the technically illiterate? ;).
