    Best data card any suggestion?
    Is there any Dual mode ie GSM/CDMA data card?

    as per I know there no such data card of that type.

    Few days back I visited Spectrum in Esplanade which is near to S H Mumtajuddin they showed me a ZTE datacard according to them it supported dual technology I.e 3G/EVDO for Rs 2500. But I wasn’t sure of it so i bought Beetel MF190 data card.

    Magnet :
    Among the two models (LAVA 720G and 720F) which one is best? Pls tell me friends.

    as I have mentioned, LAVA has only one Data Card model that is 720G, there is no other 720F .

    I think some person who is new to 3G modems will buy this. But when in the market you can get Huawei modems for lesser price better quality and reliable.
    For unlocked 3G modems try it on ebay.in beware buy only from power seller
    example
    cgi.ebay.in/Huawei-UMG-1831-21Mbps-USB-3G-Modem-Data-Card-HSUPA-/170634001328

    Huawei n ZTE are certainly the Best but cost is around Rs. 2200-2400 for 7.2 for brand new modems. But in EBay, many of them particularly all the 21.6 Mbps ones are used or manually unlocked, not brand new while LAVA’s ones are fully untouched.And some bargain too is possible.

    Pricing is too good – just performance is left to be checked. And it’s really nice that it has the most required USSD feature to check data/main balance etc…

      best 3g modem in india, please read below

      GUYS ,IF U WANT TO BUY UNLOCKED 3G MODEM IN INDIA , LAVA 720G IS BEST ONE ,BECAUSE THE ONLY BEST COMPETITOR OF THIS MODEM IN 7.2MBPS CATEOGORY IS HUAWEI E173, BUT THE REASON WHY I BROUGHT LAVA INSTEAD OF :-
      HUAWEI E173 IS:- 1)NO AFTER SALE SERVICE:- HUAWEI MODEMS ARE NOT OFFICIALLY AVAILABLE IN INDIA, ONLY RELIANCE IS THE OFFICIAL DISTRIBUTOR OF HUAWEI MODEMS IN INDIA(AND THEY ARE SELLING IT UNLOCKED),SO IF U HAV ANY PROBLEM,THEY ARE NOT GONNA REPAIR YOUR MODEM EVEN IF U R PAYING FOR REPAIRS. THEY WILL REPLACE ONLY AND ONLY IF MODEM IS IN WARRANTY PERIOD AND DEFECT IS FROM MANUFACTURER SIDE.
      2)LESS HARDWARE FEATURES:- OVERALL ALL FEATURES ARE SAME EXCEPT MICRO SD CARD SUPPORT LIMIT, HUAWEI E173 HAS ONLY 4 GB SUPPORT, BUT LAVA 720GHAS UPTO 32GB SUPPORT.
      3)LESS SOFTWARE FEATURES:- RELIANCE IS SELLING HUAWEI E173 WITH THEIR CUSTOM MODIFIED DASHBOARD SOFTWARE, IN WHICH U CANT MAKE A PHONE CALL AND CANT SEND MMS(IN LAVA BOTH ARE POSSIBLE).
      4)LOW CONTACT AND SMS MEMORY:- HUAWEI HAS ONLY 100 CONTACT AND 100 SMS MEMORY, [ON THE OTHER HAND LAVA HAS 3000 CONTACT AND ALSO 3000 SMS MEMORY YIPPEEEE ;) ]
      {[AND OTHER 3G MODEMS LIKE MICROMAX 352G AND ALCATEL X220 ALSO DONT HAVE CALLING AND MMS FACILITY AND ALSO HAV VERY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FROM MANY OF MY FRIENDS]}
