If you are searching for 4G sim card right now you have to go out of Nepal to find it... Hmm most of the countries are offering 4G services but due to governing authority delay that is still a dream for the Nepalese people, when 3G was launched it was the first among the south Asian countries but for 4G it remains as a dream so far.

below are the information related to the choosing the mobile, operating system and type of Sim Cards.

How to buy a new mobile phone
Buying a new mobile is becoming a more difficult and some may say more important decision, as choice is more varied, and contracts are becoming longer and more expensive. Before you buy, read this guide to get a better understanding of your options.
Contract phones, pay-as-you-go or SIM-only?
When searching for a new mobile phone, you have three main options: purchasing a contract, buying a pay-as-you-go phone or simply taking out a SIM-only deal. Each of these has their own benefits and costs vary.
Contract Phones
Good because...
· You get the latest phones for free.
· You receive generous minutes, texts and data allowances each month.
Not good because...
· You're tied to a long contract.
· You pay a fixed amount of money each month.
A contract phone essentially means that you take out a fixed-term contract with a mobile phone network and pay a fixed amount for it each month. You generally get a free handset, because you pay its cost back over the duration of the contract. Contracts most often last for 24 months, however 12- and 18-month deals are available.
When purchasing a contract phone, you receive a set number of free minutes, texts and in certain cases data so that you can access the internet from your handset. If you were to exceed this free allowance, you would pay for your usage on top of your monthly contract fee. Note that the majority of contracts don't allow you to use your free allowance abroad, which often catches people out. At the end of your term, you move on to a rolling one-month contract, which you can end at any time. At this point, your network will prompt you to upgrade and sign a new contract. But if you want to get the best mobile phone deal, it's always worth switching.
Pay-as-you-go
Good because...
· You don't pay a fixed monthly fee because you're not signed to any contract.
· You can manage your finances and usage easily.
Not good because...
· You have to pay up-front for the phone.
· Call costs are often higher.
Pay-as-you-go is generally a cheap and easy way to get yourself started with a mobile phone. As its name suggests, you only pay as you use the phone, whether that's making calls, sending texts or using the internet. You buy your credit up-front and then run this down as you go along. One drawback with pay-as-you-go, is that you have to buy your handset up-front. So if you want the latest and greatest smartphone, be prepared to pay a few hundred pounds for the privilege.
SIM-only
Good because...
· You can get cheap contracts.
· Contract lengths start at one month.
Not good because...
· You don't get a phone as part of the deal.
A SIM-only deal is just that – you get the SIM and nothing else. Similar to a contract phone, you sign up to a fixed-term contract and receive a set allowance of minutes, texts and data. Despite this, there are a number of key differences between SIM-only and contract deals, the primary one being that the former presumes you've got your own handset. Another difference is that SIM-only contracts can be as short as one month and as long as 24 months.
Do you need a smartphone?
Although most handsets on the market are smartphones, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you need one.
First you need to look at how you use your mobile phone: is it for just making calls and sending text messages? If so, you might find it cheaper and simpler to pick up a standard mobile phone which doesn’t come with all the fancy apps and features attached. Because non-smartphones are not connected to the web, you won't need a data allowance in your contract, which means you'll be paying a cheaper monthly rate.
However, if you’re keen to join the smartphone age by having the internet, social media and apps at your fingertips, then there are plenty of cheap smartphones on the market too.

Android, Apple, BlackBerry or Windows?
Before deciding on your handset, you can select between a number of different operating systems, or OS. This refers to the software that the phone uses to operate from. Apple's operating system, called iOS, and BlackBerry's are used only by the phones that those manufacturers make. In contrast, the Android OS, developed by Google, is open source, which means it can be modified and used by any phone manufacturer.
Therefore, when it comes to upgrading your Android handset, you can select from a number of different options, from HTC and Sony Mobile to Motorola and Samsung, and have a similar experience. One major difference between Android and Apple's iOS, is that you're not locked into a device or an application like iTunes. You can easily add and remove content and files from any computer to your phone without having to pre-register or lock your device.

LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a common phrase these days when it comes to band support from phone manufacturers. As much as you’d like to know, LTE, in simpler words, is a wireless communication standard for mobile devices which is of course faster than the 3G network or UMTS as we know it. LTE in Nepal is not a impossibility, its just a matter of time. Also if you are well aware, you might as well know that NTC has already launched Wi-MAX which is a LTE competitive network for data transfer. So, we have 4G-Wi-MAX as of now but not the 4G network for our SIM cards. Will we have one? Any sooner? Lets dig deep!

 THE NECESSITY:

LTE in Nepal, might not be a necessity as of now but we’ll soon be left scratching our heads when top-tier manufacturers start having LTE in every phones. Even as of now, high-end phones are all packed with LTE. So basically, its like the feature is there but you wont be able to use it simply because our carriers don’t support LTE!
Having an LTE means having wireless speeds upto 300 Mbps (download) and upto 75 Mbps (upload). I know that’s too much but “too-much” is what makes LTE a choice abroad. With a perfect combo of modern-era internet usage and portability, LTE is a thing to opt now, if not any sooner!

THE EXAMPLES:

LTE was first brought up by NTT Docomo from Japan in 2004 but its commercialization began in 2005. The first public LTE Service was by Telia Sonera in Oslo (yepp! that’s the company behind Ncell!). As per the stats from Global mobile Suplliers’ Association (GSA) 331 LTE Networks have been commercially launched in 112 countries and the map shows the countries which have LTE.
It further confirms that new operators and countries are thinking of deploying LTE services and the list includes Nepal too. See iit for yourself:

TeliaSonera, which owns 80% of Nepalese GSM operator Spice Nepal Private Ltd (Ncell) through TeliaSonera Asia Holding, has announced plans to upgrade the cellco’s network with 4G technology provided it receives the requisite licence and spectrum from the government. Myrepublica quotes Hakan Dahlstrom, head of TeliaSonera’s Mobility Services division, as saying: ‘I can’t exactly say the date. But if we get permission and spectrum in Nepal, we are positive [about our plan] to operate the service.’
Ncell launched the country’s first 3G services at the base camp of Mount Everest, in late-October 2010 and has since approached the regulator, the Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) for a licence and radio frequencies to offer 4G. TeliaSonera says the NTA has yet to respond to Ncell’s request. The Nordic parent group intends to launch 4G service in most of the European countries in which it is present by 2011, and hopes to add Nepal by 2012. In the meantime, Ncell continues to roll out its 2G/3G network and aims to cover 90% of the population by the end of this year, thanks to a USD100 million investment. It currently covers 85% of Nepalis. Ncell is also planning to introduce value added services (VAS) in ‘new sectors’ before the end of the year, says TeliaSonera.

Ncell introduces iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in Nepal officially

Ncell representative said they will sale the products with in a week....

Ncell iPhone. iPhone 6 finally in Nepalese market. And the buzz is likely to continue in coming days. Ncell, Nepal’s largest mobile operator by subscribers, has once again – after their success with bundled Ncell Google Nexus 5 scheme back in May 2014, proved their telco service attentiveness by officially introducing Apple iPhone 6 in Nepal. As of now, very preliminary information about iPhone 6 by Ncell has been leaked on social media. Besides basic and 3G handsets, Ncell has so far offered Samsung Galaxy 4, Tab S; Google Nexus 5; Blackberry and other bundled devices to their offering.

It is not clear whether Ncell iPhone 6 will be available exclusively for the company’s data users or for its general subscribers. Also the cost breakdown details are yet to be released. However, safe guesstimate provides iPhone 6 by Ncell comes pre-loaded with Ncell plans and certain Internet data package on every month’s price. It remains a question to answer- whether Ncell will be giving iPhone 6 for free of charge – just like Google Nexus 5  – to its Pro Premium plan data users or it will have a general sales value (Read: Ncell exclusively introduces Google Nexus 5 in Nepal, free for its data users)
Nepalese heard so many fake news about iPhone introduction by the state owned telco – Nepal Telecom – so many times but NT always proved they are just fine with the words. Nepal Telecom (NT) launching cheaper iPhone 4 was once so close to being reality after their failed Blackberry plan however their business deal with Apple didn’t go well. And now, Ncell is going a good deal with Apple. Probably, it is due to Ncell’s multinational parental presence that the company is able to introduce & offer various gadgets or devices to the Nepalese market.
Besides basic and 3G handsets, Ncell has so far offered Samsung Galaxy 4, Tab S; Google Nexus 5; Blackberry and other bundled devices to their offering.
Ncell’s official Ncell iPhone 6 link does not provide much information about iPhone 6, how to pre  order or purchase the device from the operator or anything else other than just a couple sentences and a pic screenshot derived from iPhone 6’s official web page. The world’s finest iPhone on Nepal’s finest network – let’s see how much Ncell’s marketing strategy will sell iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus among Ncell users in the country.
Announcing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the biggest advancements in iPhone history, beginning on Friday, 19 December. Customers can pre-order iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus beginning on Friday, 12 December at Ncell Centres in Kathmandu. For more information on iPhone, please visit: www.apple.com/iphone
