If he brings it with him, nothing, but if he sends it to you via courier only then you have to pay taxes.

Mobiles and watches are heavily taxed. Better get it unsealed when he returns back.

Wait, isn't he allowed to bring one item with him? So he needs to break the seal of the package?

Re: Mobile Buying Guide: February 2013

Guys, How is Xolo A700 @ 8.3K ? Are there any better competitors at this price point ? My budget is 9k and I'd like to multitask like Playing a 720p video and browsing Internet with at least 7-8 tabs. Since, I'm still on Bada OS on Wave 525, I'm expecting much more with Android apps as well as Handset.

On paper its a great phone, but it has practically no users here or anywhere, so can't produce any solid judgement, you may read fipkart reviews, but its not a very well known phone.

So, I'm left with Pantech Burst at 7.3K. It has got great proccy and gpu as well as heating issue and short battery life. Also, 262K color vs 16m color is a letdown. What do you think ?

any mobile with that kind of processing power heats up. Even Galaxy S2 & Xperia S gets pretty hot. and 256k screen is fine. at that resolution you won't find any difference unless you keep a 16M AMOLED screen next to it.

Pantech Burst.
Pantech ? Which brand is this ? Is this available in India ..?
Does it have a after sales service ? I googled it and found it has mini SIM slot ? Does Aircel support mini slot ?
