Would Galaxy Nexus US version (unlocked directly from Google Play) work in India on GSM networks? As far as I understand from the specifications the voice should work just fine as it is a quad band. What about data? Seems like it does support 3G 2100 which is used in India.

Galaxy Nexus specifications

  • GSM/EDGE/GPRS (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
  • 3G (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
  • HSPA+ 21

GSM Bands information by country

  • 900 1800 3G 2100 BSNL / MTNL
  • as it seems to be working on the bands of your country and also unlocked then it should actually work.

You may not get 21Mbps downloads on HSPA+, but otherwise, voice calls and data access should work just fine, provided you get a compatible SIM card from the local provider.


I just bought a Galaxy Nexus(unlocked directly from Google Play Store) and it works fine for me.I tested 2G and 3G over Airtel Networks.
