    I agree with the above comments,but how many rural people have heard of 3G or know what it is?For the old people,whose sons/daughters work abroad they can get a glimpse of them with this as there is no need to buy a 3G phone,which can’t be afforded by them,so this video call booth is one time payment and can happily see their loved children!! now tell me isn’t good?

    Sahil Shah,
    It is not telephone booth. It is 3G video call booth.

    Airtel charges Rs.11 per minute for a voice call to Kuwait (Gulf country). I tried video call, Rs.20 per minute was charged !!!!!!. Better to continue video chat over broadband itself.

    It good to start something new. But tell me how many are using telephone booth nowadays? Today in the world of computers and mobiles almost everyone uses internet either from computer or mobile so why not use the free video call service via skype or yahoo msg. Btw what are the call charges?

    Congradulation IDEA has started ISD video calling in Kerala. It will be a boon to the NRIs family in Kerala who are leaving their bread winner or close relatives back home for years together not able to see face to face.If this ISD videio kiosk is started in south TamilNadu Like Tanjore, Kumbakonam, Trichi Madurai where most of the poor family head is employed in Singapore, Malasia, Gulf, USA and many parts of the world, it will give the family closeness and avoid homesickness.

    I wanted to use 3G minute based pack but the paper voucher isn’t available anywhere even idea store people are unaware of such plans. This is really a bad experience. Why Rs45 3G voucher which gives 50min not available on easy Recharge? ? Idea store people are really fools they said to do an easy of the same amount and I did and what I got was STD min instead of 3G minutes. 3G Paper voucher isn’t available anywhere so for whom these plans are made fir? ?
