    Is it international version or US version. The US frequency bands are a little different from ones used elsewhere, which is where you might have the most problems (you may be stuck on just one or two bands out of a carriers 4 or 6, and if you don't have good coverageon the bands you have, then your phone has a lot of dead spots).

  • Mobile phone provider
    Make sure it covers all the LTE bands (4G), as the US LTE bands are not the same as Canada. An S series Samsung, or later series Motorola, LG or most iPhones from 7 up should be OK.
