And, all those have put me in situation to write  this blog post. It is very easy to make Ubuntu Phone in India. Here are my steps, how i did it for me. In fact, i am using Ubuntu Phone since 2013, it’s first development release. 

1. Get One Nexus 4 Device, If you have it then you are almost done.

2. Flash it with latest Ubuntu Phone build, there is detailed how-to for Installing Ubuntu Phone Build on Ubuntu Developer Wiki, just follow it.

3. You can convert you Nexus 4 with Ubuntu Phone, by customized Nexus 4 Skin with Ubuntu Logo & your desired slogan for the same. I have done the same using www.printvenue.com 

4. Synchronize your contacts / calendar’s invitees & e-Mails from you existing Google Account & That’s it you are ready to use your Ubuntu Phone.

4. Now, Make your first Call from Your Ubuntu Phone…
