Default Philippine iPhone 6 in USA

Could you use an unlocked iPhone 6 bought in the Philippines, on a USA network? They use GSM mostly there so i don't know if it would work...
I know my old T-mobile phone worked there...

Browse the device's network settings. Maybe there is an auto detection mode.

If it is GSM, yes.

EDIT: Only a few carriers can handle a GSM phone though, so just make sure you check if looking to setup service.

Short answer, yes. The iPhone 6 has a quite a few bands in it:

2G bands GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - A1549 (GSM)
3G bands HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - A1549 (GSM)
4G bands LTE 700/800/850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600
