GALAXY TAB A - Can international sim cards be used with this device

I intend to buy a Samsung galaxy tab A from O2 and send it back to Nigeria. I am wondering if an international SIM card can be used for this device, or if it is limited to O2 SIM cards only

@tj95  As the device is locked to O2, you would have to use an O2 sim and then request an unlock

Once it's unlocked then it will take any sim, even local ones in Nigeria...
