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.

If the phone resolution were bad it would show up on the camera. Load high resolution pics and see the difference. Thia is the best phone in the market as of Today. Three cheers to motorola. They are really catching the pulse.
