You will need to investigate the roaming capability in the US and the associated cost with the service providers in India, then compare the cost of service from a US provider. Your phone will most likely work with Tmobile and AT&T in the US, but not with Verizon or Sprint which use a different technology than the rest of the world.

Airtel works dear friend, you can receive free messages from hometown and you can get calls but if you attend the call you need to spend 30 rupees per minute
