  • sukumar s June 22, 2011 5:25 pm

    idea is having poor sms offers when compared to other connections. Please change the sms offers Rs. 2 per day for just 100 sms (local&std) whreas for docomo they are offering 200 sms (std&local) per day.

  • Anoop June 15, 2011 12:33 am

    SMS offers in Kerala really sucks. We customers are made fools by the networks. Think how we customers can act against this.

  • jay raulji June 4, 2011 11:40 pm

    but ,, tata docomo is verey nice it gives us 200 messages per day!!

  • reshma June 3, 2011 2:17 pm

    idea is having poor sms offers when compared to other connections. idea is taking rs 2 per day for just 100 sms. whreas for reliance they are offering 500 sms per day.

    what an idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Raghavendra May 18, 2011 12:36 pm

    Idea is having very very poor sms plans. They want to charge high from the customers, where as Airtel has good sms packs they are giving 10,000 sms for just Rs. 77 only. Idea is waste compare to all networks. They should improve, give good sms packs to customers. Its True, An Idea Can Change Your Life like this.

  • jimmy April 3, 2011 12:04 pm

    idea giveing poor offers in sms and there is no option for check the balance sms ,and the cost is so high

  • Gayathri March 20, 2011 10:36 am

    Reliance is giving 500 sms per day.. The pack is for just RS 39. Reliance is giving 500 per day and idea 600 per month.The comedy is that idea is charging 21 rs extra..

  • Jijo February 10, 2011 12:24 am

    Please change the sms offers they r costly and giving less sms…while airtel is giving 10000 sms for 77 per one month…idea is giving just 600 msgs for 60 rs which is valid for one month….so we r thinking idea is waist..pls change the sms offers and make us to change frm airtel to idea…

  • malappuram December 18, 2010 8:58 am

    Dear all–Idea not stupid SMS only many foolish offers like early internet connection first time and after some time three or for months increase like (rs350 ,450 ,550) this go to rocket but KBPS very go to low and very bad service .only think how is stealing money ,Idea no need costumer (idea early escotel incoming call stealing per minute 8 Rs ,now no can’t think all reducing prices it is big problems . Now every one urgently wants contact customer care must be paid money.

  • Anjith November 20, 2010 11:45 am

    i hav been using my conn for i think almost 8 years.. they still r offering the worst twisty_turvy plans trying to fool their customers.. m using a reliance too and they after 3 years moved me under “PREMIUM CUSTOMERS” and r giving me great offers.. IDEA is way behind… only thins is they got good coverage.. but things r changing.. other network r catching up fast.. No muct time for IDEA to think WISE.. good luck..

  • Nobin November 3, 2010 12:05 pm

    I’ve been using idea for 5 years i don’t know what the hell service they are providing to customers?I think they are doing research about how can they exploit their customers easily?idea is like the frog in the well they don’t know what the exiciting offers are providing by the other operators as day passes.I haven’t seen a dirty service like idea.we Hateeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee IDEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • manju October 31, 2010 11:07 am

    hello… idea services are not at all customer friendly… wat stupid sms offers u hav got… look at the other service like airtel , aircel and all… if u want to survive, u must provide sms offers , other value added services at a much more cheaper rate…

  • santu October 26, 2010 3:09 pm

    @Amit
    In kolkata, idea is much cheaper. it’s giving 40p/min for local & std @Rs.8/- with 1 year validity.

  • SUNNY October 26, 2010 2:40 pm

    @Amit
    HEY DNT B SILLY IDEA VIL NT DIE.IDEA HAS CAPACITY TO MAKE OTHERS DIE.

  • Amit September 4, 2010 7:54 pm

    I left idea 1 year ago..it was tooo expensive…if u hav 1p plan u can not call if your balance below 60p..then what the hell that plan value?
    ideaa will soon die

  • ARIF AK August 23, 2010 11:39 am

    its too cruel… all ather networks provide unlimited sms offers… then why idea cant…… its tooo bad also…

  • Dhyan July 22, 2010 7:05 pm

    its not a good offer, airtel is giving 4400 local/national sms for just 44..!

  • pavan July 9, 2010 9:06 am

    I dont know they are aware of the current market ,as other service providers are offering unlimited plans for within Rs.100 but they still stick to 2p/kb and also SMS packs are really worse that I have ever seen.

  • sarath June 30, 2010 12:13 pm

    Your idea is good. but if you could introduce a sms recharge plan for local sms only at the same value, it may click. Anyway the number of sms should be more..eg. 2500 local sms for Rs 25 recharge

  • Sajan June 18, 2010 11:30 am

    Aircel gives Unlimited SMS for one month in a 49 Rs Pack…
    Haha….. Idea is going to shutdown soon I think….

  • Faris June 15, 2010 6:26 am

    What a poor idea. The idea is giving 350 local and std sms by the recharge of 35. In the same time airtel is giving 4400 sms by the recharge of only Rs 44. Difference-4050 sms’s.
