I have friends visiting the US from India. They are thinking it might be good to buy a phone in the US and bring it back to India. What would be the best Android based phone for them to buy in the US and use there? Is there any advantage at all in buying it here or would it just be a problem?

They were also talking about an iPhone, but I thought that might not be a viable solution because they are so locked down.

What is the best advice to give them?

Hi,

The US also has GSM, UMTS and HSPA so any quad band GSM, tri-band or quad band UMTS phone would also work unless the area you're going to in the US has poor GSM coverage.

Question is what is their budget?

Regards,

Nexus One -- you could buy them directly from Google and they were unlocked. You may have to buy a used one off Craig's List
