    • Hi @disqus_vPM68PgVhP:disqus,India has some of the cheapest data and call rates in the world, where I live, 1GB of 4G Mobile data costs less than $1. Also, an unlimited calling and 1GB per day package for 3 months costs around $5 on some networks.

      About availability in USA, I don’t think Nokia has announced any dates.

      Thanks for the wishes sir, I hope you have a great day :)
