is it possible to use iphone4s bought in another country in US?

Hi I'm currently in Korea, and planning to stay here for 5 months. I need a phone in Korea and what i thought I could do is I can buy iphone4s here and use for 5 months, and after 5 months, take it to US and use it in US with verizonwireless line (which I currently have but temporarily stopped because i'm not using it for 5months, and plus, I lost my iphone4 so I'm trying to buy it in korea and take it to US). But what I heard is I can't use it with verizonwireless like regular iphones that we use in US. 

Please answer my question. Thank you!!

A phone purchased in Korea would likely be a GSM phone. This won't work on the Verizon Wireless network since it uses CDMA for its voice network. A GSM phone will work on a GSM network here in the USA. How well will depend on the radio frequencies of the phone.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
