I think so. I'm pretty sure that the international versions can use T-Mobile or at&t, just not sprint or Verizon.

Make sure to quote me or tag me when responding to me, or I might not know you replied! Examples:

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

Check out the top review on the amazon link, they give a good breakdown of the differences. As far as functionality goes it's got Dual Sim cards so you should be good to go there if you wanted to use both carriers, lol. and it should have dual antennas so it can work on CDMA (Verizon/Sprint) or GSM(AT&T/T-Mobile) networks.

On the newegg page it mentions it's GSM only (since it's not compatible with CDMA networks) so you're good to go with ATT or T-Mobile.

The international version is just where it was mad. Most likely Japan. Try to get a US version as the international version takes more connections to connect to us servers as it is manufactured for countries other than the US, therefore blunting the battery life. Otherwise yes it can be used on any carrier.

thnx for your response @Spunky9221 so would you recommend the full price guerentee from samsung or should i consider the amazon / newegg version aka (international version)

If you go on sites like Ebay there are some pretty trustworthy, and cheaper options for something like an s7 edge. I personally wouldn't waste my money on a "$500" smartphone. The Note 4 has a better display, larger battery, and less prone to cracking because the s7 edge is built almost entirely out of glass. just my opinion. I bought the note 4 on Ebay from a trusted vendor for a fraction of the price of an s7 edge
