    sms charges u must decrease

  • Arfath Imran September 26, 2012 11:01 pm

    I was just wishing to have the same requirements for the whole month. Like the Rs.20 and Rs.34 plans could be extended to 30 days validity. This would serve the purpose of decreasing the prices as well…
    Thank you.

    My BSNL (currently in roaming) Night GPRS pack is working in 04:30 AM- 12:30 PM IST (11:00 PM- 07:00 AM in GMT).
    I checked again & again, but got same time of deduction of night pack.
    I always admire BSNL, but in this case; I am unable to find out reason behind such used standard time.
    If they are providing service in India, then why they follow GMT ?
    My night pack is going to vain.

    Hahaha… BSNL is still struck in the days of the British Raj… Old habits die hard..

    SELF ACTIVATION facilities are also available on BSNL(CH & RoTN) for all type of packs like SMS, VOICE, VIDEO, DATA since its launch.

  • Sathish January 30, 2012 5:12 pm

    Anyway some good move has done by BSNL Karnataka.

    But When we compared with Chennai & RoTN BSNL’s SMS Pack, which is too costliest packs:

    kindly refer below packs:

    Chennai & RoTN BSNL’s SMS packs:

    telecomtalk.info/exclusive-bsnl-launches-new-sms-packs/82022/

    This is much better than rest of BSNL Circles in India; but not with private networks.

  • zeeshan January 30, 2012 4:52 pm

    @singh
    In MP and CG you can send 2000 local and 1000 national sms with Rs 53 SMS Pack. This pack also works in roaming also even with network of MTNL. Validity 30 days.

  • Raghu January 30, 2012 4:46 pm

    another thing i have to appreciate in this is BSNL have given us USSD facility where as most of the pvt operators does not give USSD facility.

  • singh January 30, 2012 4:44 pm

    wow its so simple and great

  • Raghu January 30, 2012 4:44 pm

    not a very good offer. first offer is actually the worst i can say. When it was 1p/sms what was the need for BSNL to increase the rates where as Pvt Operators are still offering 1p/sms . the only thing good abt this offer is It is applicable even in Roaming. this thing Pvt operators have to follow.
