Note 2 - Able to use SIM cards from another country?

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – HTC Thunderbolt user here (Verizon) just wondering if you are able to go on vacation to another country and use a SIM card from a carrier in the Note 2? anyone know? :confused: my contract with the Thunderbolt is up sometime next month and I want the Note 2 but not sure if I will stay with Verizon or jump to T-Mobile. leaning towards T-Mobile since my coworkers all say they like the T-Mobile network (HowTos)
