Phone service in Israel

Anyone knows what phone service Israel use?  

I want to make a gift for my cousin in Israel and send him an iPhone 7 from US.

Just make sure that your iPhone 7 supports the above 4G LTE Band and you will be fine.

basically your concern is: will the iPhone 7 be compatible with the mobile providers in Israel, is it correct?

please check this wikipedia article for the providers in middle-east region including Israel.

better to know the specific provider of your cousin to make sure the spec is compatible.

The iPhone is definitely workable in Israel. We were there in mid-2014 and my phone worked fine - phone and data. There is more than one provider and I cannot say which is best. But the phone definitely works

Apple are selling the iPhone 7 in Israel so that is a clear indication that at least some of the phone networks there will support it

If you look at the specifications for the iPhone 7 (go down to the Cellular and Wireless section) you'll see that there are several different models of iPhone 7 with support for different mobile frequencies and standards

Just because someone went to Israel several years ago with another iPhone model is no guarantee that any iPhone 7 will work so you should always check that the commuinucations standards in Israel are compatible with the iPhone 7 model sold in USA

This Apple website shows what in-phone services are supported in middle east countries

A quick google indicates that only certain models of iPhone 7 will work depending on where you're planning to buy the iPhone 7 from
Don’t get the Sprint version. Both T-Mobile and Verizon will be good.
T-Mobile model will be the same model that all Israeli carriers will sell.
