    2100 is only upstream. Downstream frequencies may vary.

    Sounds to me like your 8X doesn't support the same downstream frequency that your carrier uses.

    I couldn't find anything on the box.
    Do this:

    Check your box and see what bands it supports.

    Then check what bands Vodafone uses.

    Let's go step by step on this one. There was a post somewhere that I had made and someone had suggested Vodafone in India uses a different band than the ones used in other countries for 3G. Am trying to source it out since yesterday..give a day...meanwhile find out what I mentioned above...

    I am using Verizon 8x in India on vodaphone India. And getting H+ and 3g all the time. Same results with airtel too. You need to ensure you have 3g subscription

    Question: why order an 8X from Singapore or Verizon USA rather than purchase an unlocked one in India? Is the price of a carrier-sold version significantly lower?

    i checked my box, couldn't find anything on it. Anyhow, I managed to get in touch with HTC customer care and they confirmed that the device sold in Singapore and India are the exact same.I gave them my IMEI number and they said the device should not have a problem in India. I still couldn't find out about the bands they use.And I also tried my airtel(another carrier) sim. Still no 3G on the device.
    About the bands, vodafone customer service has no clue what i'm talking about. But a friend said, i could use a code from my phone's dialer to check what bands it would work on. Again i googled for the codes but there is such little information about windows phones online :/

    hi jack, i do have a 3G subscription. I confirmed that with vodafone and even if i didn't have one it would start consuming my regular prepaid balance on my phone. And I have been using 3g on my other phones with this same sim

    Nope, it is pretty much the same. Infact I might have paid a little more in Singapore. I bought it because I was on vacation for a couple weeks in Singapore and I couldn't wait until I got back to India to own this beauty.I don't know about the USA though.

    Oh wait, i just re-read your post. I think carrier-sold versions are way cheaper in any country. But the one i bought was sim free.
