    I will be moving overseas soon and am looking for a new phone. After traveling though Asia with my Verizon Samsun S4 I've discovered that even with unlocked phones I cant use a mobile hot spot unless I'm using the phone's original carrier.

    I want a phone that will allow me to use the hotspot with any SIM card. I'm probably going to buy used. Are there any carrier or manufacturers that dont lock down their phone like this or will I have to buy an international version of a phone?

    Welcome to Android Central!

    Take a look at the Nexus 6P or the Nexus 5X. Both phones have a ton of radios and both are unlocked.
