    Food Bazaar & Future Bazar outlets are cheating the consumers but not giving the Free Talk Time as mentioned in your website. For example, I made a purchase on 15th August 2012 at Big Bazaar at Nagasheetypalaya outlet at Bangalore for Rs. 4298 vide their Receipt No. 0004819. I was credited for only Rs.60 talktime on my mobile No. 9036810023. I should have got free talk tike for Rs. 180/- as per your website. Is anyone from T24 or Future Group monitoring if their “Franchisee” is honouring your promise on these promotional offers ???

    Tata should rethink about T24 and Virgin. These two are blackspots on their glowing face.

    We know every operator by only one name i.e. Airtel, BSNL, Vodafone, Reliance, Idea, Aircel, Uninor but what about Tata?

    I have just enrolled for your GSM service. When I tried to call from the land line phone. I was informed that the no. is incorrect. Kindly clarify and acknowledge. Also please let me know when was t24 service launched in other place.

  • vibes June 21, 2010 1:42 pm

    gprs plan is bad @ Rs95/200MB daytime. Airtel has great service and just charges Rs.98/2GB anytime!!

  • Shoeb June 20, 2010 2:43 pm

    I have never seen any one buy virgin gsm sim nor have i seen retailers having virgin gsm vouchers.. virgin is dead i believe

  • IG June 20, 2010 2:23 pm

    the only thing would be an expectation that T24 Mobile Service will provide better offer than Virgin….

  • IG June 20, 2010 2:22 pm

    T24 Mobile Service is just a replica of Virgin ………………….

  • IG June 20, 2010 2:19 pm

    Virgin is closed virtually………………..it has started its GSM services because it d not get any big advantage from its cdma services…………………………….

  • Piyush June 20, 2010 12:54 am

    @Irfanzzzzz
    Virgin is not closed.
    Instead it has expanded its footprint to GSM services.
    It plans to add 5 million subscribers in next 6 months which is quite good..

  • Irfanzzzzz June 19, 2010 10:13 pm

    i mean virgin mobile closed its services ???

  • Irfanzzzzz June 19, 2010 10:11 pm

    “Sandy Berger” You just checked Virgin mail web site known as http://www.virgin.com you’ll definitely assure that virgin is not a small brand & don’t be closed ever…

    Cholbe na.

    Benefit offered is too little to be of any significance. PEOPLE WILL NOT BITE

  • Karthik Kumar June 19, 2010 6:17 pm

    Why Tata alone allows other operators to use their network as MNVO…why not AIRTEL, RELIANCE, VODAFONE and others…I think this is a good concept and operators can generate revenue by sharing there spectrum…

  • Neal Pradeep June 19, 2010 5:01 pm

    @Shayanta
    videocon’s loyalty scheme to be launched very soon within the next 60 days..!!
    kindly register to My Loyalty @ http://www.videocon.com for more offers!

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 3:21 pm

    Videocon also can cum up wid such a concept, may b better than future grup. Videocon can give offers such as, rchg ur dth wid 200 rs & get 10 rs tt, or talk 4 rs 1000 & get rs. 200 discount 4m next outlet, any many more such offers.

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 3:14 pm

    Indian telecom field has becum the experiment lab of global telcos. First docomo introduces pay per second concept, den uninor comes up wid 24/7 badalta discount plan, again docomo cumes wid my tunes, nw t24 talk as u shop & shop as u talk, nice itz gud 4 consumers.

  • Amit.G June 19, 2010 1:20 pm

    Tata’s gsm network will become problematic again.why these ppl have become so much greedy. 3 companies operating in same spectrum!! Im sure its network ll start giving problem cos first off all tata operates in 1800mhz band And these frequencies are not efficient to handle more subscribers. Airtel has got got more spectrum wit it so its network is good but now govt won allot additional spectrum to other operators.

  • Neal Pradeep June 19, 2010 1:19 pm

    @Shayanta
    as time progresses new packs will definately be launched!

  • Neal Pradeep June 19, 2010 1:18 pm

    @Rohan
    yes it will use tata docomo’s network!

  • mayank June 19, 2010 1:17 pm

    @ABHI. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU.THESE PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING AND JUST GIVE RUBBISH COMMENTS

  • Mayank June 19, 2010 1:03 pm

    LOLZ…..THIS WILL NOT AT ALL AFFECT THE SERVICE OF DOCOMO.NOR ANY OVERLOADING.
    AS BECAUSE THE TOTAL NUMBER OF SUBSCRIBERS IS FAR LESS THAN AIRTEL OR VODAFONE OR RELIANCE.
    IF THE SERVICE OF THESE TELCOS IS NOT AFFECTED WHY WILL SERVICE OF DOCOMO SUFFER.

  • Abhi June 19, 2010 12:56 pm

    I want to clear some doubts:
    1. N/W congestion depends on number of users on network, not number of operators. You can consider Docomo, Virgin, T24 as 1 company and total subscriber base determines quality of n/w.
    2. Tatas with collabration of NTT Docomo have effectively tackled the prob that is why its n/w and gprs speed are much better than its peers.
    3. This T24 brand is targetted for Metros, tier-1 and tier-2 towns. It is called niche marketing.
    4. The brand is new. Tariff plans and STVs will improve soon.
    The concept is new, fresh and awsome. It will rock the market..
    Wonderful work Tata!!

  • vishal June 19, 2010 12:49 pm

    Totally CRAP

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 12:40 pm

    @Ajay
    videocon & uninor is only sharing towers, they have their own equipments & spectrum whereas t24 & virgin is sharing tata’s infra as wel as its spectrum, they are mvno. They buy airtime 4m tata & sell it under their brand name.

  • AJAY June 19, 2010 12:38 pm

    IN karnataka Aircel giving a-a 1ps/6sec
    nd daily 200sms free no rental no packs at 45 only

  • ajay June 19, 2010 12:20 pm

    one thing is clear that tata playing very smart in gsm business,
    first they made their network with tata docomo name then virgin gsm,
    here they gives network sharing to VIDEOCON.
    And also uninor using tata towers,
    and now T24,
    if this continues their network goimg to be most congested and may collapse also,
    Moral; keep away from tata product.

  • Raj3sh June 19, 2010 12:06 pm

    Other than the SHOP MORE offers,nothing is so impressive including gprs n call rates..

  • kaushik June 19, 2010 11:10 am

    quite expensive as STD is 2p/1s after just 10 mins in a day
    better is other operators with no limit in STD cap

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 10:49 am

    vishal :
    it will be a BIG FLOP in smaller cities where these stores are not available….LOL
    wt abt rural INDIA ????????????

    in smal cities it vil act like a normal telco whereas in big cities u get an additional benefit of getting tt while u shop or shop wen u buy their recharges. The people of smal cities can get these benefits wen they cum 2 big ones 4 shopping.

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 10:45 am

    Abhijit :
    I think Big Baazar will give the sims for free after shopping there.. as they want to increase their subscriber base as fast as possible!!!!

    nice, ab bolenge 5 kilo ata ke saath sim free yea ek lcd ke saath 2 sim free.

  • Harpreet Singh Chadha June 19, 2010 10:29 am

    This reminds me of Shakespeare : much ado about nothing ! :(

  • Merc June 19, 2010 9:40 am

    will t24 also share, the upcoming 3g network of tata docomo in karnataka? with current 4.4mhz spectrum, they will not be able to hold lot of new users unless they double the number of towers

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 9:29 am

    New SUK is available at Rs 21, the website layout is also nice.

  • vishal June 19, 2010 9:21 am

    it will be a BIG FLOP in smaller cities where these stores are not available….LOL

    wt abt rural INDIA ????????????

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 9:11 am

    But when will they launch pan india, docomo itself didnt launch pan india and its carrying 2 more telcos with it everywhere.

  • Aaditya June 19, 2010 9:01 am

  • Abhijit June 19, 2010 8:12 am

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 8:08 am

    I dont think da gprs packs are wel designed, docomo has beter packs 2 offer.

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 8:05 am

    Arent there any other packs. I mean these packs are not enough 4 a newbie 2 survive.

  • Shayanta June 19, 2010 8:03 am

    Tatas are as it is congested & over that 1 more operator, my god now tata is bearing load of 3 telcos. But the concept of getting paid by shopping is nice, housewifes vil surely take dis connection.

  • anandh June 19, 2010 7:50 am

    Adding more congestions to single group this will suffer other networks too.

  • Starpco June 19, 2010 7:21 am

    Ye tata tele karna kya chahte hai jaise lag raha hai election me vote katne k liye candidate utarte hai usi tarah ye dusre oprators ka connection kam karne k liye t24. But ye bhi bakwas hai.

  • Arjun.C June 19, 2010 7:15 am

    Total docomo plan. It may use docomo network like virgin did, and will make docomo more poor by putting pressure on it.

  • zareef June 19, 2010 1:25 am
