Greetings to all Community members!

 

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Unlocked from USA. Can I insert and use a physical Indian SIM card like Jio or Airtel in that while I'm in India?

I would be highly grateful for clarification of this important topic!

Thank you in advance for your reply!

Sincerely

With my best regards and wishes!

If that phone was bought network/carrier unlocked you wouldn't have to worry about a region lock. Those region things as far as I know are on video game systems and dvd/bluray players.

You need to figure out what cellular frequencies or 'bands' your S23FE runs on compared to your JIO or Airtel service offers. That will tell you if it is compatible

Thank you for the reply!

In India GSM is being used and the bandwidth also pretty much come within the range as per my research (correct me if I got it wrong). My main concern is that if there's specifically any kind of regional/country lock even if the phone is unlocked.

Is there any specific kind of Regional Lock system particularly for S23 models?

Not that I am aware of personally as I've in the U.S. but that doesn't mean that they didn't do one.

Need to make sure what bands the phone uses. This link explains your country's frequency bands. BTW you all have 4g lte coverage now which is more advanced and faster than gsm

And this lists all the bands your s23fe can use. Mainly fdd/4g lte bands 3,40 and 41 are the ones India has license to use now. Hope it helps brother.1706772895701.jpg
