    Default Purchasing Nexus 4 from US but using it somewhere else

    hey everybody
    I've got a question
    I live in Thailand and Nexus products are not available for Thailand yet, so I'm planning to ask someone in US to buy one for me and post it to me.
    My question is that will I face any troubles using the device, if I purchase it like that? can I buy applications easily from Google play?
    One more question. What about warranty? Can I take it to any LG consumer service in Thailand in case it's not working the way it should?

    Thanks a lot

    Well when it comes to usage there should not be any problems as long theres a carrier there that has a gsm micro sim type of network and buying apps should not be a problem as well..but warranty wise i believe lg would only accept it in the .u.s since the warranty is for that region so you would have to send it back to the u.s. for those problems.. p.s. I could be wrong.

    Hello,

    I live in the Philippines and I asked some family to buy the Nexus 4 for me from the US. Will the phone work with a Philippine SIM with a GSM band of 900 MHz/1800 MHz?

    Thanks!

    Isn't the warranty supposed to be international? :|

    When you purchased it, what did they say about warranty policies? will they support your device out of US?

    It doesnt matter about the warranty. Just send the phone back to your friend in us who then returns it.
