Was considering buying a windows phone but was advised against it by the dealers who argued that it has significant limitation on our local networks. Is it true?

Yes, it has currently been noticed that Windows phones have challenges with accessing USSD prompts.

If you intend to use a service that is reliant on USSD (e.g. mobile money - EcoCash) then this handset is not for you right now as there are no SMS work arounds.
