    Even though offer looks good but reviews from Iphone Zero plan users isn’t satisfactory. They are complaining of snail like slow 3G. So people here be cautious as this company is known for its fraud activities are pathetic GSM coverage.

    Reliance GSM is the most 3rd class Service Provider & considers all Customers to be suckers & fools that can be looted by them through unfair means.
    Big Brother Reliance Jio will do the same in 4G.

    Most of the telecom operators steal customers’ money from the back end (mostly by back end VAS activation, though now it has been reduced to great extent after TRAI’s stricture). And, RCom is a leader in that. After launch of this offer, we need to see if those Lumia models are priced more than MOP and, whether they are operator locked. Customers must check all fine writings before deciding to go for these offers.

    wowwww !! Every thing unlimited. only reliance can so. great offer. Had it been an android device. i would hv definitly gone for it.

    I know that reliance is a thief but how can they possibly do any kind of robbery from a truly unlimited plan at a fixed rate.The plan is a waste in south india where reliance has no 3g license but still its good to see atleast some operator trying to replicate a u.s like contract system in india.

      But ask me, about the condition of reliance 3G here in West Bengal. It would never connect when you need it. And if it does too, speed is a so disappointing. I get 3G speed of 12.5 Mbps from Vodafone here but when it comes to Reliance, it is mere 0.60 Mbps or around. Reliance is known for Call Drops, poor customer care, theft of balance and etc. Its moreover considered as a cheap and outdated network and used mostly by money concious people ready to suffer quality of service issues. Not recommended for high end smart phone users who would require high quality network with out downtime and real 3G speed

      If the selling point for you is the all unlimited offering, then you can get that without buying the phone with zero plan as well, coz if u calculate the current market price of lumia 1520 it’s rs.43000 divide it by 24 and it comes up to 1791 and subtract this from Rs.3349 and you get Rs.1558 which is the net price you are paying to get unlimited calling, texting and 3G data. Reliance is offering this same benefit on 1499+tax plan for postpaid subscribers valid even in roaming.

        3G without any FUP

        • Esmail March 5, 2014 10:13 pm

          Yes the 1499 plan has truly unlimited 3G data usage without FUP, the 1299 plan has a 5GB FUP.

          • Esmail March 5, 2014 10:28 pm

            Sorry, I went by the incomplete info on the Rcom website, cross checked elsewhere, 1299 gives 5GB FUP 2G and 1499 gives 5GB FUP 3G. Any idea if the unlimited 3G data in the zero plan is valid for tethering?

            • Rama March 6, 2014 6:39 am

              I probably guess it is,infact for the iphone 5S zero plan,Sanjay Bafna had said that the sim card can be removed and used with any kind of an unlocked modem so I think thats gonna be applicable for Lumia 1520 as well and may be tethering might be possible as well.The Lumia 1520 plan from reliance is not attratctive but when I did the math for the iphone 5S plan,after paying all the EMIs,a user would end up paying just 700-850/month for unlimited call,text and data.

            • SS March 6, 2014 10:48 am

              No i am 95% sure about it. Nearly all operators of the world do not allow tethering on truly UL 3G. for Example:- T Mobile USA has a plan of $70 which allows you to make UL calls, texts, data on high speed network (they call it that way- i guess its 4G) and 2.5 GB for tethering. So limit applies. They do it to prevent commercial usage of the plan.

              One thing i notice some of the VOIP are using Tata Docomo truly UL Call, SMS pack like call2friends.com, earlier call would come from a unknown number diplaying Calling- “Unknown number” or “No CLIP” (on BSNL) and +202 (on airtel) now it comes from a docomo Andhra Pradesh network.
