    IDEA ia asking for KYC and filling up CAF for retail outlets in kolkata, Easy Recharge SIM is to be handed over on 21-22nd sep 09. Tariff sounds to be attractive @20p for all local and 50p for STD. Lets see wat they actually offer though network would be bad for atleast 3-4 months to come in kolkata.

    Virgin’s Network is quite good. It uses Tata’s network and Tata has a reputation of having the lowest call drop among other operators.

    @Biswas,talking 30 minute in a day virgin costs only Rs. 18
    if u wanna talking 30 minute in a day with idea u have to spend Rs. 87.50
    and who says idea network is so good virgin have a pan india network and some states idea not launched yet
    but everyone knows as std call in roaming costs 1.5 in all networks irrespectively any tarrif card so what are u thinking about this tariff this tariff is not able to work in roaming :lol:

    taking 10min/day STD calls, virgin costs (3X1.5 + 7X.5)X30 =240
    on idea its (10X30X.75 + 54) =279 but wat ever Virgin netwrk is not good over India and those people who do frequent std calls like businessmen wont go for Vigin option.

    offer is not so good and no need for say “limited period offer” because offer is not much effective and up west folks are not going to fall on it!
    hence Virgin mobile is ready to serve 50 paisa call on lifetime no need for any tariff recharge
