    It looks like most of India is covered by Verizon (or more likely a sister carrier) based on this coverage map:

    Calling From India

    To check your phone, do the following:

    Go to Manage Connections>Mobile Network Options and verify that the Network Mode is Global. This should automatically find a GSM carrier. If you want to manually select a carrier, go to Network Mode, and select GSM. You can then go to Network Selection Mode and select Manual, and the phone will search for available networks that you can then select to connect to.

    The other option would be to unlock your phone (there is a thread discussing this on this forum), and insert a local sim card in the phone.
