    Usually you should be prompted to choose your region the first time that you enter the Marketplace, so where you bought your phone from shouldn't make any difference. Anyway, I don't think you will have any app problems. In fact I think that the US store should have more apps than the Indian store. However the UK store would have been even better since it has more apps in the Nokia collection like Nokia Music (I'm not sure that there is Nokia Music in the US....).
    Oh and one question: how did you get the Lumia 800 from UAE? Last I hear it wasn't officially on sale there since WP doesn't support arabic...

    the phone hasn't officially arrived yet, my dad left to dubai a few days ago and is due to arrive tomorrow, no word from him in concerns to the phone, so i'l know when he's back and i've seen on many UAE supported online stores that the phone is ON SALE. KSA currently i think doesn't sell the phone.
