looked at a few phones from US Cellular, it appears that they are CDMA, at least the 3 smartphones I looked at where, if that is true then the phone will not work on ATT, the cellular radios are incompatible

If the phone uses sim card, then it should be compatible, right?

no, you need to verify that the cellular bands the phone is capable of using are the ones that att supports. For example a US Iphone 5 will never get LTE speeds outside the US / Canada since the LTE bands that is used here is not used anywhere else
