I am looking at upgrading from my old MotoG3 to the Moto G5S+. I just got back from my 6-week stay in China, and t would have been fabulous if I had been able to buy and use a foreign SIM card while there.
I am new to the idea of unlocked phones, but based on my perusal of the forums, I am under the impression that the Moto G5S+ that Republic would sell me is factory-unlocked. I have noticed that unlocked phones are specified between “international” and “North American” versions. What difference does this refer to?
The bottom line, I suppose, is will this unlocked phone (is the 65S+ unlocked, like I’m assuming it is?) allow me to use a foreign SIM card in the future? What else does “unlocked” device enable me to do that I can’t do with my outdated G3?
I will be eternally grateful for a brief explanation of these concepts! Thank you!
