If you want LTE on your phone, please do check that the US or international version supports your local LTE-band.

I know, that's why I ordered from UK instead of USA. Also why I used UK in my guide

Even i have ordered but used entropay.com to pay (virtual credit card)

Is your order processed or pending ? I still think they can decline the card when they process the order because it being having a different billing address (not in UK)

I think the same can happen with my order.

It's Pending, but read in one of the other threads, that it is normal until the order has been shipped
I know that they still can cancel, but I'm thinking they won't since Visa is a international card.
Guess we'll just have to wait til 5th to find out

Hey, I just ordered without any problems, however, I may have done a mistake.
I accidentally ticked the box that assumes my billing address is the same as the shipping one. Now, I used the address that the forwarding company gave me. Do you think Google will see this and cancel the order?

EDIT: After reading your guide, I guess I did it all right.
