Blackberry Z10 Different Models Question

Hello All!

 

I live in India and if i were to buy a Z10 from USA unlocked from T-mobile, would it work with my Vodafone IN carrier?

Also i heard dat for future OS updates i would require a US sim card as Indian carriers would only pass updates for -001 and not -002 which are being sold in the USA!

Can any1 please verify that?

and if possible give me a workaround for future os updates?

Please use plain text.

That very well could be true, and appears to be true currently.

The workaround (for many) has been to follow the directions here:

Of course you wouldn't like that. I wouldn't.

While there are no garentees software updates can generally be found at 3rd party BB fan sites such as CrackBerry.com and BBOS.  :smileyhappy:

 

 

I'm pretty sure carriers in India are getting the Z10 though.  Have you check with Airtel etc?

 

 

EDIT:  I just checked, you carrier offers the Z10.  Why not just get one from them?  :smileyhappy:

Re: Blackberry Z10 Different Models Question

There are TWO revisions of the -3 device floating around.  One has the T-Mobile HSPA split 1700/2100 band in it, the other does not.

But you do lose warranty and support be unlocking and removing from the selling network.
