    dear sir,
    i have idea prepaid card purchased from mumbai circle. now i am going to solapur (maharashtra circle). so i want to reduce my outgoing call charges, idea service center says there is no plan. so i decided to port from idea then customer care called me back and assured for low call rates also i got msg of activation of low call rates. But when i called local/other mobile i havebeen charged more neither according to customer care assured nor according to activation msg. So i m looking for ur positive reply soon. otherwise will port my card to other company!

    Rahul :
    idea is a fraud company! a copy cat of vodafone! has ganged up with vodafone to cheat annd loot people of mumbai and maharashtra! these idea thieves consider and charge roaming between mumbai and maharashtra, when no other operator of india does this (except vodafone and idea gang). its ganged up with the british vodafone and looting indian people!
    only for this reason i ported out from idea to airtel! airtel considers mumbai and maharashtra as one circle and does not charge roaming between them! i am very happy that i dumped idea! i hope many more idea customers (especially from mumbai and maharashtra do that) and teach them a lesson! these idea company is nothing but a pet of vodafone.. always following its master!

    First time seen different tariff while roaming in rest of Mah & Goa circle. All rest of the operators are offering same tariff.

    yeh kya bakwaas hain ?

    idea ki roaming tarif hai…..hahahaha

  • Saptarshi Roy December 7, 2009 9:33 pm

    @zeeshan
    Reliance Smart GSM has been around for quite some time in the RTL circles. Still, it is bogus in terms of network. I agree with you, old is not gold.

  • zeeshan December 7, 2009 7:03 pm

    Old is not always gold@hardeep

  • hardeep December 7, 2009 6:18 pm

    my dear friend, reliance gsm can never be compared with idea….. idea is a relatively old operator, and has good network, which reliance cant think of at this stage, so please just think a bit before posting comments, my dear@NIMEESH

  • neeraj biyani, rajasthan December 7, 2009 5:45 pm

    can any body tell about reduction of roaming in raj.state

  • Naveen December 7, 2009 4:57 pm

    Why Roaming tariff not by Default as BSNL giving?

  • S Sam December 7, 2009 4:07 pm

    Idea always leads in confusing people and leads in adding hidden charges….

  • NIMEESH December 7, 2009 3:52 pm

    reliance gsm is better than idea

    Whats the difference between RC 38 and RC 49 ?

    RC 38 has zero talktime and RC 49 has Rs.10 talktime in it

  • kaushik December 7, 2009 2:55 pm

    Whats the difference between RC 38 and RC 49 ?

  • Abhijit December 7, 2009 2:51 pm

    Same pay per second offer should be introduce in other circle also. minute plan costly than pay per second plan while roaming.. so better to go with 1ps/sec plan for roaming…

  • ishan December 7, 2009 2:34 pm

    RC 38 and RC 49 is good..idea is also offering the pay per second plan in roaming..better than AIRCEL and AIRTEL..
