    Mostly Loop mobile (Prepaid)GPRS does not work in roaming.. It shows Packet Data connection not available! as remark. I personally checked it..
    If others are able to connect to GPRS of LOOP, then please tell the procedure of accessing GPRS while in roaming network..

    I disagree with fazal. Loop has one of the best networks in Mumbai. You would only face issues when the network is undergoing an upgrade. Based on my 4 years experience in Mumbai.

    Arif :
    Yesterday I had sent SMS for porting and I got porting code. Today I got call from Loop Mobile and she asked me the services and why I want to port. She said since I have life time validity so I can not port. So Loop Mobile is using tactics to stop porting of the Loop Mobile numbers.

    Complain to trai. This is totally rubbish from loop.

    Mr. Sourav reliance ne delhi me roaming plan sare band kar diye hein, ab yeh 1 aur 1.5 rs charge karta hai. Sirf purane customer jo november 2009 se pehle ke hein. Uske bad sabi naye customer ko scheme nahi di ja rahi. Bat karte hein. Ha ha.
    Aur han yeh bhi bata dun reliance postpaid me abi per second per minute plan abi bi uplabdh hai aur yahan par per second plan 1paise/sec se 2paise/sec kar diya hai aur 50p/min and 1.20 /3min hai abi. Ab reliance prepaid kaun kharidega delhi me, hai kisi ki aukad jo itna mehenga tariff afford kar sake.

    Yesterday I found loop mobile network in kolkata. Don’t know when it’s gonna launch. It’s a complete waste of license.

    I am noticing loop’s siganl almost for last one year. And till then no sign of launch. Loop is perhaps happy and satisfied only with Mumbai. :(

    MNP heat wakes up LOOP MOBILE atleast. Loop mobile dont have their own network on pan india circle. Loop has roaming tie up with biggies like idea, airtel, vodafone. So loop is giving lower roaming rates on other network so it is good offer. But other operator are giving lower roaming rates when we select their own network while in roaming . So with loop we can get access with all 3 biggies while roaming so we will never be out of coverage. But MTNL Mumbai is still sleeping. MTNL Mumbai is only operator remaining who dont have any roaming plan , still MTNL is taking rs.1.50/min from roaming. So MTNL Mumbai its time to wake up now otherwise using MNP WEAPON many will port out to enjoy less roaming charges.

    RELIANCE 59 PACK (FREE ALL RELIANCE TO RELIANCE ALL INDIA AT NIGHT) ALSO WORKS IN ROAMING….
    RELIANCE EVERY SMS PACK (RS 39 PACK OR 19 PACK ) ALSO WORKS IN ROAMING……

    ROAMING K LIYE RELIANCE GSM SE BETTER OFFER KOI NAI DE SAKTA.

    These plans ARE for roaming on other networks. Even when in mah and goa roaming on any network other than aircel incoming is free.

    I think loop is the biggest fraud in indian telecom.
    Rcom,bsnl,docomo and idea are offering roaming plan so cheap with one year long tarrif validity.
    I think if loop is planing to extend gsm service in other telecom circle, they need not it

    what a joke.
    loop mobile doesnt have a network offically in more than 3 circles and they are talking about NATIONAL roaming.
    and in no way its possible that this plans will be valid on using some other network.
    WAT A SHAM……

    Bakwas plan in docomo default roaming plan is the same even cheaper than this as std calls are also charged at 1 paise

    I think the next tariff war would be about eliminating roaming charges. It’s illogical to charge roaming when all the biggies have pan-india networks. It’s not the customer’s fault if his handset gets latched onto network a if he is a customer of network b. Operators like 3 (owned by Hutchison) have a concept of 3 like home wherein customers don’t have to pay for international roaming within 3 networks abroad and only pay local charges or it usage is deducted from their tariff allowance. If roaming is waived off completely in India (dream tho!), next version of MNP (Intra circle MNP) will be of no use.
