    Does an Android phone bought in USA works in India without any unlocking procedure?

    I am planning to buy an android phone from USA but not sure that whether it will work here without going through any unlocking procedure as we do in iphone.

    Hi friend
    They do will work if the phone you buy has the same frequency as the Indian carrier has.In the US cellphone and carrier work on 850/1900mhz. In india most carriers has their network on 900/1800mhz frequency.So,you should buy phone that has 900/1800 mhz frequency in addition of that 850/1900.
    And unlock procedure is for SIM.Not for phones.
    Hopefully it will help u ..... B bye

    Dear Friend

    I am sorry to say that WITH OUT UNLOCKING the mobile you buy from USA will not work in India.

    The concept of unlocking is to make your handset to be compatible with the Indian Networks, Networks work differently here in India and Abroad. So i advice you to unlock your Mobile before coming to India.

    You can unlock mobiles easily with the help of the Providers, To the Maximum it is going to cost you only $40.

    The phone bought from USA must be unlocked before its use in India. I suggest you to get it unlocked before you use it otherwise it wont work with Indian network and you will end up buying a useless phone. It will not cost more.

    Hello Guest,
    No, It won't work properly since the frequency is different in foreign countries. As far as the unlocking is concerned, yes it needs unlocking with the help of imei code. Once this has been achieved, now your phone can adjust to INDIAN carriers and networks. So you will be able to use your phone only after unlocking. Thank you.
