    OMG! Seriously Pandey??? You are telling the car DIRECTLY receives WiFi signals? How can persons who doesn’t know how MiFi routers work, lead BSNL? The car receives only EvDO signals and then creates a WiFi hotspot!

    Why is BSNL making such a big deal out of this? When thre have been simpler solutions for accessing wifi in moving cars since years. I for one have been using a 3G enabled sim in an unlocked USB wifi router which can be plugged into any USB power source. Now this can be used in a moving car by plugging it into the USB stereo port of the car music system and then you have high speed wifi on the go.

      same here ,I am also using wireless , rechargeable wifi router and 3g Dongle in car , which works fine ,

      I have tested this in Pune last month before death of MTS in PUNE city , :-(

      a good move by bsnl. see, when inside the moving car, the signal perception is poor in case of dongle, but if we will put one outdoor antenna above the roof of the car, the signal strength will increase, and it it will help seamless data usage. see for example, tune your fm station over mobile, and so also on your car audio, while you are in a move; and surely you can differentiate between the two.

    One of my relative is a prepaid customer of Uninor U.P.East circle. Today the company activated caller tune service without her consent and deducted by Rs.40. She called their complaint cell through 198 and asked to deactivate the VAS i.e. caller tune but they refused to refund the balance.
    The same kind arbitrary VAS activation was done by the service provider more than two times within one week of porting my number in Uninor and the grievance has been registered through http://www.pgportal.gov.in The said grievance has been not resolved yet and the company misconducted on my relative’s number too. It seems UNINOR is involved in such arbitrary and unethical act.
    Earlier Reliance was notorious for such balance deduction and now Uninor is on the same way.

      I have one solution to this, Call 1800-114-000 (toll-free and accessible from most operators) and follow the IVR and do as the executives assist you.

      P.S.- I have got all my money back every time operators taken by faulty billing with their help.
