Built for Business - Learn more about BlackBerry KEY2

    I need advise for which prepaid, postpaid plans are best for my set of BlackBerry devices while in India (Q10, 9930, 9370).

    Which carrier would you suggest for national coverage, particularly in Mumbai and Gujarat, while considering price.
    If I was there for three to four weeks instead of four to six months which options are better in both scenarios?
    How do I interpret what is given on each carrier's website?
    Lastly, what frequencies will I get while there or where can I check this?

    Thanks for the help and any other advise you may have.

    I have heard good things about Airtel. Don't know much about their pricing though. I do know that in India, it's all about no-contract service.

    In India, they use the 2100 MHz band for 3G. The good thing about that is all models of the Q10, and possibly of the 9900 and the 9370 have this band.

    That is good to know, looks like my 9370 might have a problem but will be able to access GSM. Now I need to understand how the top up plans work.

    Also would like to add that you can forget about getting LTE there:

    1. It's very sporadically deployed
    2. It's on some obscure band

    I really wasn't expecting LTE as even Wi-Fi is hard to come by, unless things have changed in the last couple of years. I was just concerned about ending up with 1X instead of 3G or extremely spotty coverage while on road trips between villages and the city.

    I'm going to request this thread be moved to General Discussion. I've seen plenty of similar threads posted and stay in there. Hopefully the move will get this thread more exposure and better answers!
