    This offer is also available for entire RoB circle…so Idea is not a metro operator…it also serves better for everybody…..but newly launched circles like RoB always got some more facility than old circles….it is same game played by every big operator…Idea is not only the player in this segment…..

    idea kolkata has every altenative options whether it’s for unlimited calling,free mins or sms or cheaper local calls.tata docomo is lagging far behind in respect of lucrative offers.aircel is also offering same plans as those of idea but with some extra costs.

    IG :another operator Mts now should think about reducing its call rate as it is a cdma….

    idea gives 30p or 1p/2sec with monthly recharge of Rs 23 and 28 respectively where mts gives same tariff with one time recharge with lifetime validity.So don’t compare idea with mts.

    Sachin :lagta hai Kolkata se kuch jyada ji pyar hai, har koi kolkata mein hi naye naye offers de rahe hain aur naye naye operators launch ho rahe hai, delhi ka toh badluck hi kahrab hai…………

    now 10 GSM signal live in kolkata circle namely Aircel,Airtel,Docomo,RGSM,Vodafone,Idea,uninor,Loop,BSNL and Datacom
    Etisalat and STEL will not launch in kolkata
    but maximum operators are in Bihar Circle where there is STEL and ETISALAT alongwith these 10

    Not great.Validity must be min. 1yr.1month validity is not great.I have vodafone with local call @49p/min for 1yr.Why should I opt for Idea for 30p/min. for 30days only.
