    I'm not Auroralith, but I do own the LG Optimus Net. It does NOT have GSM capability, and there is no SIM card slot. So it won't work on a GSM provider in India or anywhere else.

    If you want a phone that you can use both in the U.S. on Net10's plans and in India, I'd suggest getting only the SIM card from Net10 and use your own phone. There's more info about this program at the link below.

    You can then buy an unlocked phone to use with this plan. There are many options among the various Android models, but some favorites are the Motorola Atrix for a lower-cost phone, or the Samsung Infuse for a higher-end phone.

    You can get the phones from many places, including eBay or Craigslist. Just make sure you get an unlocked GSM model, or get a locked phone that you can unlock with a code purchased on the web.
