I do not understand why Gsmarena does not make a review of this great phone.
I also noticed that motorola phones are left apart at gsmarena reviews.
I see a dozen of reviews about samsung and nokia but only one moto per month.

it is the best android phone so far..
i have had a htc hero and a samsung galaxy s ,
but the photon I can say is at least 5 times more powerfull than all andoid phones i had before + battery lasts
worth buying

The SIM slot is for GSM only and if you want to make the phone work in India you would have to subscribe to the GSM network.

Or else go back to US and open an account and use the phone in India on long term roaming!

You can use a foreign SIM card in US or use AT&T / Tmobile SIM OUTSIDE of US.
