    Thankfully this is not something that will affect the prices of the S8 and S8+ in India.I’m not sure people would pay the extra money to have it unlocked when they know they’re going to keep using the same carrier for a while

  • A pretty confusing move by b&h, when market leaders like AT&T and Verizon are selling it at a lower price, it is really unusual for them to sell it at almost 80 dollars more. That would really drive customers away.
