    This is great as the plan is also applicable when you are in roaming.
    This should also be done for SMS plans as they are paid in roaming.

  • Snehasis February 6, 2010 10:41 pm

    To check remaing DATA usage, dial *123*10# Its shown in MB format.

    Airtel speed is very very bad in jodhpur, in downloading speed i hardly get 3 kb/s
    and surfing speed also sucks. Iam using Nokia 3120 classic but then also it sucks to use airtel internet…

    @Fahad.. now remigration from post to prepaid only an sms away,Airtel customers need to type Pre1 ie per/sec plan and send it to 51619 reactivation within 48 hours ie good beacuse gprs is active on prepaid, i share an intresting thing wth u,during the ban phase i was planning not to migrate my airtel connection to postpaid but wht happend incidently was that the number was migrated to postpaid services by airtel without my notice as u know for migration the condition was to resubmit the docouments but wht happend later was that when i contact cc helpline they told me dat it was an internal offer by the company to the customer who had the maximam usage. Security deposit was 50 rs which i had never paid and till now i am calling to any number unlimited without any charges REWARD from airtel inst’t it

    i have been used airtel for last two years.I had used unlimit GPRS@20/- plan i.e unlimite, i.e good plan. But now aittel has introduced 200MB@17/- what is it’s use.
    I think airtel will be loose GPRS usage customers……PLZ avoid GPRS limit packages.

    why AIRTEL mention boundry to usage (2GB)

  • subbu January 29, 2010 10:01 am

    airtel gprs speed is no more than 70-80 kbps (7-8KB) on average and is less than that at 30-40kbps (3-4KB) during peak hours.

    airtel’s claims of between 144-236kbps are blatantly false! bsnl and docomo are the best in terms of speed, with average speeds of 120-200 kbps depending on the time of use.

  • Prasad January 28, 2010 4:09 pm

    Tata docomo speed is less than 1 kbps over EDGE and disconnects every 2 minutes
    I am sharing doco. experience under tower just 10 meter away from docomo tower
    i activated Rs. 5 pack and got 10 mb but i hardly consumed totally 700 kb and my whole 10 mb lost becoz speed is very very slow
    so never took any of above for net surfing except airtel

    We want our operatrs to be all rounders…
    Bt it seems vodafone don’t cares about it…

    why you gayz expecting gprs packs from dogafone ?
    they never launch what you are expecting
    dogomo is also acting as over smart ………. and reliance ? no option except slow mobile browsing
    airseal 1kbps over EDGE and 1 bps over gprs so never keep a dream about download anything ever tiny gtalk 1.5 mb
    disconnects frequently
    Airtel [G] is better than aircel [E]
    AIDIA dont try to activate because ther is no way to deactivate
    ideas linux system is knows only activation process (in other words there is no idea to deactivate their so called daily rental sucking plans GPRS1 GPRS20 or NET1 and NET20)

    JUNINOR this operator is still in operation and still junior so leave them alone for a bath and cloth change

What a discrimination !!!!!! Sorry I am going to change my Postpaid to Prepaid.
