    At least two problems I know to exist with foreign bought phones are 1) used frequencies 2) virtual network operator config.
    As for 1) frequencies used in Europe, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands and http://www.worldtimezone.com/gsm.html
    To my knowledge there are fixes (for android) for VNO config in the pipeline, but they are not ready yet. So they have to be set up manually with proper config file. However, this could easily be uotdated. @Vladlenin probably has more up-to-date information about this and more insights on your question.

    This phone will work fine in Belgium. You can find the list of Belgian service operators and the frequencies they use for both GSM and 3G services here:
