Thank you so much Dovi, you are a great help.

Mesh, you changed from wanting a device that can accept a foreign sim card (unlocked) to actually using the usa device abroad.. :)

Looks like T-Mobile has terrible reception in my house. So i'll have to cross this one out.

So looking into this one:
Just get a phone that's unlocked - like most Verizon smartphones - and then get a SIM locally.
Which VZW devices have SIM slots?

Don't forget the snow removal.
And the money you save on parking (meters and tickets) will pay for Verizon service, many times over.

He means any Verizon MVNO. Page Plus is a mobile virtunal network operator that leases unused airtime from VZ. But VZ famously does NOT give away their 4G, unlike Sprint or other MVNOs.
