Hi goBIG, are you buying a phone from Hong Kong for use in the US? If that's the case, you have to first decide which network you will use when you get home. IIRC, AT&T is mostly GSM, while Verizon is CDMA. Given that most (if not all) phones sold in HK are GSM, you might end up with AT&T.

also make sure that the phone is not locked to a hong kong network and if it is ask them politely to unlock the phone for you
