I' m from India and using Lenovo p770 dual SIM and I want to buy Xiaomi mi3, which is a Wcdma phone. Will my current normal GSM SIM work on this phone? And currently I'm accessing both 2g and 3g network on this Lenovo p770. Will I have to change my SIM or will this phone work in India?

Hi,

Yes it will work WCDMA is just a 3G, but the slot also can connect to 2G networks like GSM/GPRS/EDGE.
If you are going to use it with GSM only sims u shouldn’t even bother about getting the WCDMA OR TDCDMA version. Since either can use GSM on both sim slots. It’s just the 3G that is only enabled on 1 slot, GSM is something “default”.

    CDMA is only 2G technology, which is a direct competitor to GSM. Where as WCDMA is belonged to 3G technology that is used along with GSM to provide 2G and 3G network within the same areas of coverage. So WCDMA and CDMA does not belong to the same group.
