Newton Biswas : Hi, I’ve taken the unlimited GPRS plan. But I’m facing a very illogical problem with it. Whenever I’m downloading anything and meanwhile if anybody tries to call me it shows that I’m out of reach. I’ve never faced this problem with any other operator. Surprise is when I called 198 executives told me that this is the feature and you cannot receive calls during usage of GPRS. It seems I’ve have to port out my number.

Raccoon : So they will graciously offer Rs. 3, and that too at NOMINAL charge!? Won’t be surprised if that “nominal” charge is another Rs. 3! 100% interest, lol! Anyway, no use cribbing. Move to Docomo/Uninor etc for much better tariff. Did that long ago. Network of both is also pretty good in Mah. </blockquote Firstonnet : Abhijit : Idea now becoming worst & Most expensive operator of Maharashtra circle… 1.One year back discontinued free GPRS data usage from roaming Idea network.. 2. 6months back increase call rates from all @ 1ps/sec to 1.2ps/sec all mobile calls and 1.5ps/sec all… Read more »
