    If I purchased a unlocked Galaxy S7 from Samsung or the same phone advertised by Best Buy as unlocked, does it have all of the radios that I need to have it work on both Verizon and AT&T and T-Mobile? Is there any reason I am not better off buying this unlocked phone from Samsung or Best Buy?

    Thanks for your help

    A SIM-unlocked phone can take any SIM - one that's not unlocked, you have to get the unlock code from the carrier and unlock it yourself. Otherwise, there's no difference.

    I did more work and compared the S7 that I can buy directly from Samsung versus the versions that I can buy from AT&T and Verizon. The frequencies of the Verizon and AT&T versions include 4G TDD LTE: B38(2600), B39(1900), B40(2300), B41(2500) but the unlocked version from Samsung does not. Does anyone know if this will make any difference in my performance or ability to communicate?
