    Hey Emad,

    I think you really deserve to be known as a stupid customer of tata docomo.. I think your life is big problem which nobody can solve. There is innovation happening in tata docomo’s service like online chat service for the customers and you are the exception for such service with your reactions like throwing sim card which will never solve your problem. If you switch to any other mobile service provider n if u face some technical issues you will throw another sim card and then you will spread negative viral messages…

    good move but plan should be affordable or around at Rs.10/month than it will be beneficial for all specially in rural area.

    Not raigad district, in maharashtra !!!! They do not have proper network. ironically they their call centre personnel harass the subscriber in the name of verification. No signals in many place. I am staying very near to New PAnvel hardly 400 meters away from the city, still no network. Repeated complaints elicit same reply ” work in progress”

    TATA DOCOMO IS KARNATAKA’S NO.1 SERVICE, NEXT GOES FOR BSNL, AIRCEL AND UNINOR. AIRTEL, IDEA, VODAFONE AND RELIANCE GONE WORST IN KARNATAKA

    Similar situation in Tamil Nadu
