umm, i wonder if the question asked by the topic-starter, mr.jpatalia, is the same as mine...technically speaking, i am quite a geek. i'd like to know if reliance service can be taken on a non-reliance cdma set. can we buy a certain handset from a place like, say, dubai, and get reliance service on it in india for use in india? and if not, then is the same possible on a non-reliance cdma set bought in india? wot about the frequency and all that...duz it need to be changed if the handset is purchased from abroad? and wot is and wot is not illegal? please, i apologise for my utter lack of knowledge in this field...could anyone kindly clarify?
