Your cellphone will work normally in Ukraine as long as it is a standard GSM phone.
However, if you want to use your number for receiving and making calls when you travel to Ukraine, it is always a good idea to check with your local cell phone carrier before departure and inquire if about their roaming service.
Since costs differ from carrier to another, so find out about yours’s roaming plan for Ukraine and how much it will cost you.
Many US cell phone carriers, for example, charge $10 per day for a roaming pass and this will activate as soon as your phone connects with a tower in Ukraine.
