    Not a good Idea to expanse 123 Rs. for this tariff.understand the needs of customer and launch new plans..

  • IDRIS January 19, 2010 1:24 pm

    IDEA always comes with Very BAD Ideas….!
    Paying 123 per month or paying 49/- per month is not a good IDEA these days, others charge that for a YEARS time …Why should one go for a BAD IDEA…

    RELIANCE ROCKS,,,,

    @Fahad
    Am talking about R-cdma and in my case its purely meant for calling and text. One can save a lot. Most GSM providers run out of Idea ;-) when you get into the basements of most of the buildings in Delhi, resulting in very weak n/w .

    @rajiev
    In Delhi circle I have gone for Reliance postpaid. That appears to be the best option. If you go for other Big Brothers you will be fleeced off ! :-(

    Hope MTS launches soon and rocks Gujarat with lifetime 1p/2sec calling @ one time recharge…

    except in kolkata, mts offers 1p/2s for Rs 30 for 1 month,

  • Prasath J January 19, 2010 12:16 am

    Even Airtel is giving Unlimited CUG FREE + 600 minutes Local minutes FREE with Rs249 per month postpaid plan…

    Here all operators are offering 1p/2sec ALL LOCAL calls @ Rs45/month, Idea gives 1p/2sec OnNet calls at Rs47/month… Very bad idea of IDEA…

    And 10p/min ON-NET for Rs123??? I don’t even want to comment on this… :D

    Idea asks us to save Trees, but it keeps on axing its customers… What an Idea Sir JI..????????
