Default P9981 International Editions?

Please Login to Remove!

Does this phone have different edition that vary from region to region? Reason I'm asking is i found this phone 2nd hand in a fair price, but seller says its been imported from UK. Will i encounter any unlocking issues, or any kind of regional drawbacks?

I assume that you are talking about the Porsche BB variant? Not many of those out there that I know of, so I would be leery of a second hand one at a "good" price, whatever that means.

I agree with Dubdub. However, if it's from the UK, all you need to worry about is the keyboard. There are different keyboards available in Europe. There is QWERTY, QWERTZ, and AZERTY. If it's a GSM phone you should be OK. However, 3G frequencies vary between carriers so no guarantee that you'll get 3G once the device is unlocked.
