    Reliance has done sms charges to Re.1 from 0.50 even if u hav the per min or per sec tariff activated from Dec 3,
    that too without informing the subscribers. Reliance is becoming thief day by day.

    Reliance is a well known cheater.

    Hey Friends and TT Readers I have a little information about 3G launch specially in Delhi , According to Reliance and Reliance Executives I got information that Reliance is gonna launch 3G services on 10th or 11th December, 2010 and Reliance 3G is gonna really very cheaper than all of others operators.
    ]

    Its tariff will be Rs.10/- for 1GB but this tariff is not confirmed , known by Reliance sources but still Reliance 3G tariff will be cheapest but current tarriff known is 1Paisa per second for internet or 3G too which is not cheap .

    sahil :
    Reliance has started giving attention to their customer care. Now whenever we talk to their CCE on 198 then after the talk they have a couple of questions for feedback to be anwswered(Yes/No) on a tollfree no.
    Questions like-
    -Did the reliance agent understand your issue correctly?
    -Was the reliance agent able to take care of your query/problem?
    -Were you satisfied with the tone and manner of the reliance agent?
    -Did u get a satisfactory answer for your query?
    -Would you recommend reliance to your family/friends?
    Hope they take action too the feedback given by us!
    Post MNP their is a sudden change in their attitude. Earlier I used to wait 5-8 min to get connected to CCE guy & now they take up the call in less than a minute.
    I other thing I am noticing is that form DEC.1 afterwards their cases of Automatic VAS activation has increased rapidally. They activated Gprs51 pack on my number by themselves & now my balance is in minus.
    I think Reliance has gone bankrupt & now they are deducting balances of their customers for their CCE salaries & 3G network Equipments!!!

    Most of the answers for feedback should be ‘NO’ for most of the customers.
    If you say “I other thing I am noticing is that form DEC.1 afterwards their cases of Automatic VAS activation has increased rapidly”, then why don’t they refund the money.

    Sanjay Bafna :
    The new specifically tailored 3G VAS portal will be available for both GSM 3G as well as and CDMA subscribers (they also can enjoy the same with EVDO data speed on Mobile phone so 120 million subscribers is correct for the same.
    Till Sept’ 2010 Rcom has 55.28 million CDMA subscribers and 41.2 Million GSM subscribers. RCom got 41.2 million GSM subscribers since its launch in December 2008, even as its CDMA subscriber base increased by just about 6.5 million from 48.6 million to 55.2 million.
    Going by the current rate of growth the RCOM will soon have more GSM subscribers on their network than CDMA even though they had launched the latter network more than seven years ago.

    Thanks Sanjay ji for this useful info as we were not clear about their GSM and CDMA subscribers yet.

  • Sanjay Bafna December 4, 2010 12:22 pm

    S :

    Rcom does not have 120 million customers in GSM. Majority are now on CDMA. There are very few GSM customers who will eventually get upgraded to 3G. This post is incorrect in saying that it will cater to all 120 million customers, since 3G is evolvement of GSM and not CDMA.

    Post is correct, the new specifically tailored 3G VAS portal will be available for both GSM 3G as well as and CDMA subscribers (they also can enjoy the same with EVDO data speed on Mobile phone) so 120 million subscribers is correct for the same.

    Till Sept’ 2010 Rcom has 55.28 million CDMA subscribers and 41.2 Million GSM subscribers. RCom got 41.2 million GSM subscribers since its launch in December 2008, even as its CDMA subscriber base increased by just about 6.5 million from 48.6 million to 55.2 million.

    So now a day Majority is NOT on CDMA as you think !!

    Amit I Don’t Know Why This People Hate Huawei. As Per the Information in Wikipedia Huawei is The 2nd Telecom Equipment Manufacturer After Ericsson By Beating NOKIA-SIEMENS Networks. Even Their Offices are Located in Sweden, China, India and many More Countries. But Our Indian People Thinks That NSN is Best Coz they Hailed From Europe. But One Thing NSN is Giving Poor Quality Services. Take Delhi’s AirTel 3G Results It Was Developed By NSN Which is Having Poor Coverage and 3G Speed is Not Upto The Mark.

    UNINOR MUST HAVE TO ROLL OUT THEIR BTS IN MOST PARTS OF KARNATAKA, I WISH THEIR EXPANSION WILL QUICKLY STARTUP IN KARNATAKA. AFTER UNINOR 3 WORST SERVICE PROVIDERS WOULD ENTER INTO KARNATAKA THEY ARE ETISALAT, VIDEOCON AND LOOP THEY DON’T KNOW PROPERLY ABOUT NETWORKING TAKING TO VIDEOCON CASE VIDEOCON COVERAGE IS VERY WORST IN MOST OF THE STATES WHERE IT HAS LAUNCHED. IN TAMILNADU VIDEOCON IS VERY WORST SUCH THAT YOU CAN’T ABLE TO USE VIDEOCON IN MAJOR CITIES IN COIMBATORE OF TN. AND ACCORDING TO KERALA PEOPLE AIRCEL IS MUCH BETTER WHEN COMPARED TO VIDEOCON COZ AIRCEL IS QUITE GOOD @Amit.G

  • ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR December 4, 2010 6:41 am

    @Amit.G
    By Viewing Uninor’s Performance All Operators Have to Learn How to Maintain The Network. I Think Soon All Operators Will Prepare Later Like UNINOR Except AirTel. Coz AirTel is a hardcore Company That Never Follows TRAI Rules Reasons are
    1.AIRTEL’S COVERAGE IS WORST IN RURAL AREAS OF TN,KERALA,MH, GUJARAT, HARYANA
    2. AIRTEL CARE DOESN’T TAKE CARE OF THE CUSTOMERS IF I COMPARE BETWEEN AIRCEL CC AND AIRTEL CC, AIRCEL CC IS MUCH BETTER. COZ I’VE SENT AN E-MAIL TO NODAL,APPELATE AND CC REGARDING COVERAGE ISSUES IN RURAL AREAS THEY’VE CALLED ME UP AND THEY ASSURED ME THAT IT WILL RESOLVE IN 6 MONTHS

    Another VASs from Reliance. Now they will find more ways of cheating customers by activating these VASs without customers request. :-D

  • Amit.G December 3, 2010 11:07 pm

    @ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR
    Ya buddy ur rite uninor has got best voice clarity than others, U know wats the positive point of uninor compared to other operators??? every operator has technical dept consisting of technicial experts who take care of network issues. But uninor has outsourced tat to the network vendor itself, ie say in karnataka Ericsson has supplied equipments to uninor & if any prob occurs then Ericsson technical team will solve it. This thing will have a greater advantage as their wont be any Ego between technical experts of operators & network vendors. this info was given by one of my friend studying in my college who has worked in ZTE for 1.5years

  • ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR December 3, 2010 10:38 pm

    But One Thing NO ONE CAN BEAT UNINOR!!!!

    Yes it has Similar Voice Clarity Like Aircel On My Samsung Mobile. Better Than AirTel Man.

    Told i spoke to Reliance mumbai head department Person name AVINASH KHAN regarding that I had not activated any GANESH PACK service from my side on 1st dec 2010 at 9am . But still he says that i had activated through dialing code.
    Now i ask that my number was switch off from 3 days how can i activate it at Morning and That too Ganesh pack ,where now there is no Ganesh FESTIVAL.
    Itz totally Reliance GSM fault of activating VAS services from their side and They dont even refund the amount.

    Reliance activated cricket updates on my mobile when my mobile was not in their service area (not even on roaming). But they insist that I have done it using DSTK (Dynamic Service Tool Kit).
    More such cases can be find on TelecomTalk.info’s comments about Reliance.

    It is sure,
    That Reliance is a ‘CHOR’.

  • ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR December 3, 2010 8:17 pm

    @Amit.G
    If MNP arrives One Thing I’m Sure Either I Will Port My Aircel Number to IDEA Or Else, I Will Keep That Same Operator COZ IDEA’S Services are Good Going and Aircel’s Coverage is Also Improving But I’m Not Porting My Aircel Number To AirTel Coz AirTel Network Coverage is Very Weak in My Area and AirTel CC is The Terrible in KARNATAKA They Want To Deploy More No Of BTS Or Else Aircel/IDEA/DOCOMO/MTS/BSNL Will Swallow AirTel Customers. Reason is IDEA, AIRCEL, BSNL, DOCOMO AND MTS are Having Their BTS in Bangalore Chennai Byepass Road Which R Giving Their Coverage To Rural Areas

  • ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR December 3, 2010 7:46 pm

    @Amit.G
    Ya man In This Case i Will Accept That Aircel Will Attract 55-69% Of Indians. But One Thing Only Reducing The Tariffs is Not the Improvement They Must Have To Expand The Coverage and Must Have to Deploy New Routers, Switches, Linux Servers, VLR, VoIP Systems to Give QoS(QUALITY of SERVICE).

  • som December 3, 2010 7:41 pm

    this is all good and ok but when are they going to launch it and at what price?that is the point.

  • sahil December 3, 2010 7:13 pm

    Reliance GSM subscribers are less than their CDMA counterparts & also they are decreasing day by day. At most of the places their GSM network is not good specially their EDGE speeds as i hav read so many reviews.

    But at my place their EDGE network is able to outperform my bsnl 256kBps unlimilted plan. I get almost 28-30KBps download rate constantly with speed spiking upto 45 KBps & some times upto 65KBps.

    Earlier I used to get 2-3 bars hardly in my computer room but from almost 1st NOV. I am getting full 5 bars without fluctuations, I guess becoz MNP has started here. They have finally upgraded their towers to provide inside coverage may be becoz my village is one of the biggest in haryana with almost 20000 population & they will loose customers heavily here.

    Becoz of MNP, I guess they are also upgrading their 2G network along with building the 3G network. I believe the speed in 3G will be highest by RELIANCE rather then DOCOMO or Airtel 3G even if all deploy HSPA+, their through put is mostly better than other operators. Missing RELIANCE 3G in haryana!!
