    vidyut :I Just Booked my No 9422XXX459.received SMS.Went BSNL Exchange Tarapur,Boisar Maharashtra.They Dont Know any thing about it. Also CC said that This facility is For Nashik & Kolhapur Only.What to Say?. Any body having BSNL Maharshtra CEO No.Or Mail Please Give Me?

    Its true that they are launched it only for two cities i.e. Nasik -Koregaon & Kalyan not for Kolhapur, they are looking forward to launch it in entire circle very soon & to collect the choice number you dont need to visit Exchange, you can get it even from BSNL outlets or Frenchisees. Now the condition is like demand is very high but process of activation took lots of time so that they are trying to make it simple (Internal) You will soon get the same facility in your Boisar area. Still if you are interested to drop email then please write it to

    Here in Pudukkottai, Tamil Nadu BSNL employee did not know this detail. This kind of lack of knowledge among the BSNL employee, BSNL lost its customer even though BSNL deployed latest equipment.

  • ssthanu December 19, 2011 9:18 am

    Thanks Telecomtalk. I have took a bsnl prepaid connection by choosing numbers online.
    Unfortunately BSNL Customer service people in chennai is not aware of such options. I browse thru their booking portal to find the right link and found under “CYMN” (Choose Your Mobile Number)

  • memem December 18, 2011 10:16 pm

    @Saptarshi Roy
    Use the search function. I found an excellent combination.

  • vinay December 17, 2011 10:28 pm

    mtnl dolphin mumbai network has been deteriorating. i think they r purposely agravating problems of network, so that their customers can exit to other pvt operators. a big scam in the offing.

  • Saptarshi Roy December 17, 2011 10:04 pm

    I found the numbers neither fancy nor desirable!

  • Neeraj December 17, 2011 7:01 pm

    Thanks, i reserved one for myself

  • Abhijith December 17, 2011 10:41 am

  • Vinayak December 17, 2011 5:34 am

    Yeah TT u did not mention de cost aspect. Can I reserve a number similar to my Land number, that; is can i ask for a particular number instead of a number given by BSNL?

  • Sowmiyanarayanan S December 16, 2011 10:23 pm
