    Dear Idea cellular,
    Please don’t just regret for the inconvenience caused to your customers, I think idea charges for data on Roaming, so be frank and tell the customers that idea network charges for data roaming in other circles.

    If possible work towards it, so that the benefits is received by the customers on roaming and data is counted from data pack.

    Regards

    Saiesh

        Sirs – This TT is a blog and the comments/complaints/suggestions- one way or other when addressed by the concerned will be helpful others who read them. IF u hijack the problem and whether solved or not, others on TT will be in dark. In my view at least generic answer is expected rather than a “Call-center-ic” reply with Ref. No. is unwarranted.

  • Pradeep December 10, 2012 4:30 pm

    It is horrible network. If you take prepaid 3g bundled plan. The speed will be so slow, that the data will not be used even 50% in prescribed time limit. And if your time limit expires, the speed will increase and your balance will be consumes by Rs.300 to Rs.400 per hour. As the rate is so high. I took 1GB data plan with validity of 30 days. In 30 days, only .5GB was used and when I used after 30 days, in one hour, 8mb data and Rs 160 was deducted by Idea network. And when I asked they tell me simple mathmatics @2ps/Kb for 8mb is Rs.160.

  • abhilasreddy November 13, 2012 2:12 pm

    Hi ,
    I am in roaming and I have recharge of 148 plan for unlimited access of internet after calling from IDEA customer care and he suggest me recharge with 148 for Internet pack.
    When I access internet approx 2 hours, my all balance(approx 330 + 148) was lost. I am very frustrate.
    When i call IDEA Customer care , then he said me your mobile number is not in Delhi Region while my number belongs from Delhi Region and after that he disconnect my call.
    Really very very very bad service. Sure I will quit service from this company when i back to Delhi.
    -Thanks?
    Mahesh

    seem as out of context

  • Rasim May 18, 2012 2:48 am

    I thought Idea 3G would be a better one, thought they might provide us with flexible plans, contrary to our expectation they published a plan which is not feasible for a general user like me, they must learn from other service providers, how they are getting customers by offering them flexible plans. And also coverage during the daytime is very bad.

    If you want to buy it, take it on your own risk!

  • time vs usage April 16, 2011 9:15 pm

    check this out
    “plan 45 time based”
    if speed is around 2.1 mbps
    then 2.1 x 1024 = 2150 (convert into kbps)
    30 x 60 = 1800 sec (total time)
    2150 x 1800 = 3870000 Kb (total kilo bits possible)
    3870000 / 8 = 483750 KB (kilo bytes)
    483750 / 1024 = 472 MB (total possible download possible in 30 min)

    Who critisize bsnl for its poor costumer care need a look to the indias emerging company none other then aircel.Whose customer care is pathetic in terms to problem solving,i have resistered my complained 8 times,they tell the conformation no. but never send by sms and say that they have already,and after 3 or 4days when i call back for my problem enquiry and ask to check no they said the no is incorrect.and last time they crack the master joke that,iam called them first time but i regularly call them in 7 months.and also they have their funny costumer officers.first they ask your name and after that they take your name and ask your name.like amitabh in sholay to basati.basanti tumhara naam kya hai.actually i comlained for in my city internet on aircel didn’t work no E or G sign display.
    The conditions of award winning company.so cheers

    Pl clear my doubt,
    I am having Nokia C5 which is having HSDPA and can deliever speed upto 10 Mbps.
    Now i am planning to get high speed internet on my laptop. Pl suggest which of following option will be better in terms of speed, usage cost & equipment durability
    1. Nokia C5 with BSNL 3G Sim
    2. BSNL 3G Datacard of 7.2Mbps
    …….Thanks

    Go for unlocked data card if u want to save the life of ur battery.

    my suggestiontoo go for data card if u want to save ur fone and battery

  • Anurag Bhatia March 30, 2011 11:13 pm

    @Girish

    In speedtests = yes, you fill find 10.2Mbps HSDPA fast in comparison with 7.2Mbps dongle, but based on current high rates of 3G, it hardly matters!

    In real, 10.2Mbps, will give you a real world peak of somewhere like 2.5-3Mbps, while datacard will give somewhere close to 2Mbps.

    I would say speed is insignificant because:

    1.Soon 5Mhz spectrum will be choked and you will find all networks to be slow. Somewhere close to 1Mbps.

    2.Rates are way to expensive, so you won’t really download any data. 2Mbps or 3Mbps ….doesn’t matters unless you download lot of data.

    My advise = use cell phone via datacable, and if wire is hastle, use bluetooth (slow, but again doesn’t matters). I won’t recommend investing anything over 2kRs in a 3G based datacard, when BSNL is about to get aggressive with WiMax, followed by launch of Reliance Infotel (over TD-LTE) in a couple of months.

    Hope that will help!

    i think idea is providing the costliest 3g tariff… Just 5gb for 1750rs… Compare it with other operators tariffs…

  • Saravana March 29, 2011 9:12 am

    Hi frinds.
    Why compare with BSNL and MTNL Tariff? Compare with other private operator and see.

    Sanjay ji,
    Can we get a comparision chart of telecom circle wise price and speed of 3G operators. This will be benificial for prospective people who plan to move to 3G.

  • Sougata Das March 29, 2011 9:07 am

    It’s expensive and i am happy with my present Reliance Netconnect Broadband+…But i am sure within this year all the 3G Data tariff will be reduced in the market.

  • jimmi March 29, 2011 7:59 am

    Why should any one opt for these plans where we will get Greate coverage and very reasonable pricing in BSNL(2p/10KB). Only problem i feel in BSNL is customer care… But BSNL has all india 3G coverage(no roaming issues), even in tier2 and tier3 towns it has 3g coverage…

    Very expensive …i m happy with my mbalze and netconnet,,dont wana prefer for 3g for net.

  • Ahamed March 28, 2011 11:17 pm

    Rates are too high compared to BSNL. BSNL gives 0.5 GB monthly for Rs. 275. Extra usage charge of BSNL is 2 paise/10 KB whereas IDEA rate ranging from 5 paise to 10 paise for 10 Kb. 1 KB is equivalent to 8 kb. Thus IDEA Charges forty times higher comparing to BSNL.

    how can unlock idea net setter and what we have to do for activation of idea 3g in usim

  • Nilanjan March 28, 2011 9:41 pm

    Bsnl 3g is best..i got average 1mbps speed in my area…

  • Rahul March 28, 2011 8:40 pm

    Time based plan in actually good, because while using opera mobile for browsing the connection is on till the website is loading as soon as page is loaded it goes offline.
    On 3G it takes just 2 seconds to load a page, I have used it on BSNL 3G.

    Everyone is starting with some idiotic tariffs and idea looks no exception to that.

    It’s not telcos, but Indian Govt. which gave JUST 5Mhz spectrum. Keep expectations low on so less spectrum.

  • Rajive Borde March 28, 2011 8:08 pm

    Idea cellular’s 3g data speed and network quality is far better from airtel,relaince and tata docomo. idea guys did home work nice good indoor coverage no call drop and super cool speed data connectivity

    yaa.. we can roam with 3G in non idea circles also but what are the rates while roaming in non Idea 3G circles ?? Are home data rates applicable while in non 3G Idea circle also??

    And when Idea 3G launching in Pune,Panjim,Nashik ,Nagpur,Aurangabad, Kolhapur,Solapur,Vasai-Virar,Bhiwandi Ulhasnagar city of Rest of Maharashtra circle as Idea is largest operator in terms of revenue as well as it has highest 12,540,812 subscriber base than any other circle of Idea..

    AIRCEL 3G unlimited on Dongle @ 1275. While Idea only is giving 5Gb. Lets assume if Aircel 15Gb it would be Great.

  • Nilesh Patel March 28, 2011 4:20 pm

    I think the Pvt Operators are gonna suck customers with such costly services, BSNL and MTNL with such cheap rates shud have benefitted from this with MNP in place, but due to their poor Customer Services and bad Networks and outage and downtime and connectivity, they are loosing the mximum customers, Wake UP BSNL and MTNL, pvt operators are making life easy for u, get up and get good services

  • Mohit Salecha March 28, 2011 4:17 pm

    Seems like there’s a mistake in Dongle tarrif

  • Anand Kumar March 28, 2011 4:15 pm
