    Even though it shows Airtel it could still be locked in which case you are going to have to contact where you purchased it and have it unlocked from the carrier you got it from.

    Just from reading other threads, from what I have gathered, even after being unlocked, the iPhone's originating in the US are not compatible with many (if not all) of the carriers in India...or at the very least, the functionality is limited.

    Just because it's unlocked doesn't mean it's usable on your countries carriers.

    This happened to my friend in Brazil. She got an iPhone from Germany but it wouldn't work when she got to Brazil. It has to be unlocked and it has to have the proper radio for the region that you are using.
