i got approved for unlocking my phone and got an unlock code and did the following step to unlock my phone and was successful. now im overseas to use my unlocked phone but my phone can't read other carriers sim card the signal would show but 4g wouldn't show. tried to call it but says my phone is tunred off. went to see the sim card status it shows the phone number for the new sim card but say no network unknown and says out of service. Also my phone starts to heat up when another sim card inserted. any help? and i need to use my phone quick.

What phone? Most prepaid androids have no bands other than 2g for outside the USA.

my phones a galaxy s6 edge. so i wont be able to use this phone even tho its unlocked?

The S6 edge is not a cheap prepaid phone.
You need to contact the new carrier for help. It may not have compatible bands for LTE and may need to be programmed for their network.

so i looked up on the internet a little and figured out my phone is a gsm network and the carrier i'm trying to use is cdma. is it possible to use a cdma sim on my phone?

No. But I’m surprised as most overseas carriers are GSM based, not CDMA.
