I am not sure this question is quite relevant to the site's purpose. Anyways IM giving it a shot as this is the closest forum I found to ask.

I am planning on buying the HTC One X running ICS (AT&T unlocked) to use back in India. I understand the myriad of differences (starting with the HSPA+ and LTE on each version) between the GLobal and the AT&T version.

I am not a pro in telling the differences between the technologies and knowing if it would be fully compatible.

I know voice and messaging will but how about data? (which is 'the' whole point of the phone)

Would I still be able to get updates (Jelly Bean) through the local carrier (say Airtel)

Please advise. Here is the link to the ebay item: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HTC-One-X-16GB-White-Unlocked-Smartphone-/320989441413?pt=Cell_Phones&hash=item4abc762d85

Are you planning on using Airtel's 4G services? I think 3G would work fine. Unsure about the particular implementation of Airtel's 4G services in Kolkata and Bengaluru. –  Sparx Oct 1 '12 at 12:18
Thanks! Hey Im excited if 3G serves me well. Given the annoying differences in technologies between the global and the AT&T unlocked versions, my only fear is if the latter Im buying, will function to its fullest in India and If the carrier gaurantees updates for the phone. –  user1266515 Oct 1 '12 at 12:35
The carrier won't do squat, be forewarned. You're not purchasing thru them, so why should they? If you're concerned about updates, you can always flash a custom ROM yourself. –  Sparx Oct 1 '12 at 13:40
Yah that makes sense, but the whole custom ROM thing is greek to me, atleast now. What scale of complication are we talking here? In other words is it worth the price difference? –  user1266515 Oct 1 '12 at 13:49
Shopping recommendations are off-topic here. Whether it's "worth the price" is completely subjective. –  Al E. Oct 1 '12 at 14:09
