Unlocked GSM handset, with 900/1800 frequency bands

This is the bare minimum you would need to be able to easily purchase pre-paid service acquiring a local SIM card in India. Add additional technologies such as UMTS/WCDMA/HSDPA (3G) and additional frequency bands (850/1900) and the device may be used in other parts of the world quite seamlessly.

In a nutshell you want a quad band GSM handset (850/900/1800/1900 mhz frequencies) and unlock it so you can use a foreign SIM card (with a local # from that country/region).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
