Hi all, first time posting here, but have been lurking on these forums for a while.

Been waiting for the new Lumias (since before their official announcement) to come to the US, especially the 730/735's. Since it does not appear that will happen soon, I had a moment of weakness and made an offer for a dual sim 730 on Ebay from India, and find myself now awaiting its arrival. The posted specs regarding frequency bands indicated it should work for US/Canada GSM carriers, but I really don't have any experience with using foreign market phones. I'm curious if someone more experienced in the matter can comment on if they've had any issues? I expect there would be no warranty coverage here. Will there be problems with getting future WP updates?

re:

Nope there won't be any issues as far as using it on ATT is concerned (if you're in the US). You'll get HSPA+ at the max but no LTE which I guess you might already know. Updates would still be pushed when Microsoft updates the India CV ROM. If using it on T-Mobile USA then the max speed you could get its HSPA+ if you live in a T-Mobile refarmed area. If not then you'll be stuck with 2G
