how can I pick a cell here using old SIM card from china phone

I have a cell phone bought from china (Ktouch trid band), it has intel roaming enabled. When I arrived in the U.S, I can not receive any network signal. All I want this phone is to receive short message from China (no phone call or send out message function needed). So I am looking for any U.S cell phone that if I swap  my old SIM card over, it can receive the text from China. No smart phone is needed if I can use just non-smart one.

 

Spefic question are:

 

1. Should I buy any quad band cell phone will solve network signal problem?

2. Should I only buy pre-paid cell phone in order to avoid any monthly charge?

3. If the cell phone I bought here have chinese language option, does that guarantee my text message will show Chinese character properly?

4. If I need install chinese character, how easy it is to download or reconfig?

 

thanks in advance!!

Hello shunshen, welcome to the forum and thank you for your post!

 

Are you asking about using a Chinese SIM card in a AT&T phone?

 

Thanks,
