    Since there is no information on availability of motion in India. I planned to buy it from unlocked-mobiles.com. Is this good, will the mobile works with Indian Sim without any issues??

    Need your suggestions...

    AT&T doesn't allow them to be set up on third-party devices, so that they don't work on that carrier doesn't surprise.

    On T-Mobile, however, they generally DO work unless the device sends the wrong user agent string or similar.... and many non-US market devices do, as they're programmed for European (or Asian) standards.

    So it mean, I can understand that the mobile will support all networks in India. Also will I receive security updates??

    My only concern is I should not have any issues after buying this mobile from a third party... such as networks, security updates..

    I can't find much current information on which bands Vodafone India supports but if the Motion variant you buy matches the bands that their Keyone does I assume it should work if they allow devices not purchased from them.

    https://www.vodafone.in/discover/mob...sumer&pid=4069

    Keep in mind though, it probably won't be dual sim. I don't believe any dual sim versions of the Motion have released yet.

    I don't know if there will be any problems or delays with updates (I assume that depends on which carrier the device is from), hopefully someone else can answer that.

    I got mine from Dubai last month and it is BBD 100-6. Dual Sim. Saw the models at Dubai Airport and various retailers, all were BBD 100-6. I am using mine in India and it works well with two major carriers both in home and national roaming network.

    What carrier are you with? Were you also able to get the November security update in India?

    So you mean to say that I should buy BBD 100-6?. But I believe in the unlocked website it is mentioned as BBD 100-1 I think..

    I am with Vodafone. Have also used my Airtel connection in the device to confirm that the dual Sim option works. I am not going to use dual Sim though. Using the slot for external storage with a 64gb micro sd card. It is a hybrid slot - either second Sim or the micro sd card.

    I would suggest BBD 100-6. I used a DTEK 60 which was BBA 100-1 and it worked on all carriers but supported JIO VOLTE in home network only and not in roaming. You may want to check Motion models available on Ebay India as they might have the BBD 100-6 imported from Dubai where the phone was first launched. And yes I did get the November update.

    You can also message the sellers on the link I have shared and ask about the models they are selling. https://www.ebay.in/ulk/itm/142554766381

    The price is around 40k whereas it is 29k in unlocked website. I don't think 40k is worth for imported mobile, where else I can get an Indian keyone...
