My present WLL phone has been installed to my present residence was only on December. 2008 instead of my old landline phone surrendered from the old address.

    Bsnl had announced free prepaid 3g sim as onnam offer. When I purchase 3g prepaid they charded 120 rs saying that 59 rs is the sim cost which is free and i have to pay 120 additonal. And other offer is for datacard which is mentined as free with some conditons like we need to pay one year plan amount (10000 inr) as advance.

    i’d like to say that this is not offers, we’ll get these kind of benifits from all providers.

    Any ideas how to obtain the free sim card? Will they provide it with the monthly telephone bill (just like they did in some other states)? Alternatively, should we go to the exchange and collect it in person?

    There is no information regarding this in the official kerala telecom website too ..
