Can I use an unlocked US mobile in Poland?

I need a new phone. I know that most electronics are cheaper in the US and my parents are coming to visit next month.

Will an unlocked phone bought in the US work in Poland and accept an Orange Polish SIM card? Or is there a regional block on the phones? or maybe the technology is different?

Thanks!

Yes, providing it's a GSM phone. If there are any problems, you can buy a phone very cheaply in any one of several places in the railway station in Warsaw.

AT&T and T-Mobil have gsm phones. I was with T-Mobil on my last visit to Europe and the phone worked beautifully.

Don't know about Poland but I have an extra, unlocked iPhone and use it all over the world by buying local sim cards. I have Chinese, Philippine, Korean, Australian, etc. sim cards and change them when in need. Don't do it often as skype on my regular iphone works pretty well at most places and almost every cafe, etc has free wi-fi. However, i use it when in need, also it helps for "local" friends to get ahold of me, for example i had a Thailand layover and a buddy of mine who owns a motorcycle shop and lives there could call me for free. iPhone uses the standard GSM technology.

There are many prepaid sim cards all over the net...
