    My brother works for verizon. im getting a droid turbo (employee edition) if that matters. Im also going to manila for a month or 2 soon. Im not interested in roaming or anything verizon offers. Im planning on getting a lte sim card out there and am wondering if I need to unlock my phone for the lte to work.

    From my understanding I can use a local sim and have voice/sms fine without unlocking but what about data? I'd be ok with 3G.

    The local carriers (Smart LTE uses 2100Mhz, 1800Mhz and 850MHz bands) and (Globe uses 1800mhz, 2500 and 2600).

    my droid turbo says
    2G Network-GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    CDMA 800 / 1900
    3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
    CDMA2000 1xEV-DO
    4G Network LTE 700 / 1700 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 (Bands 2, 3, 4, 7, 13)

    My question is what local carrier is best for at least 3G and do I have to have my droid turbo unlocked prior to going there to access at least 3G?

    unlocking obviously voids the warranty when i get back. thanks

    As far as I know, there is nothing to unlock. All Verizon global phones are not SIM-locked and you should be able to put any SIM that supports the GSM bands. I'm not sure about what's best in the Philippines, though.
