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?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes, your normal GSM SIM card will works without any problem in your WCDMA phone. All the regular GSM SIM cards works on the WCDMA mobile except the CDMA sim card.

    Hi, I'm planning for the same mobile but for a Reliance CDMA SIM. Will this WCDMA can have a CDMA Reliance SIM? Thanks for the help.

    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.

    @shreebharathipandi, it will not work. However, some phones are made to be used as a dual slot.

    Unfortunately no, in your case @shreebharathipandi. You could always check with the manufacturer if there is an alternative before you make the purchase.
