Buy used iphone and use in another country.

Can I buy used iphone in US and use in different country?  Or does it have to be unlocked because there could be a different service in other countries.  GSM vs. CDMA for example.
Please advice.

Thanks guys.  My buddy is stationed in some small country eastern europe.  He and his family will be living there indefinitely.  His daughter wants iphone.  Hence he's thinking of used iphone7.  
He's coming to US frequently and thinking of getting iphone that would work where he's at.

Wow!  That is confusing. Thank you!
If you can tell me the memory size and color, and if you want ATT/T-Mobile or Verizon/Sprint, we can narrow it down quickly.

And if you search on eBay, you will want to know the model number and the A number, because all phones are not listed properly, and there are thousands of them.
Ask your buddy to visit the link below and you will have the specific model of iPhone which will work there.
