Tata Docomo Introduces Unlimited 1GB 3G Plan for Rs 250, Adds Talktime

tata docomo unlimited 3GIn response to our earlier article, Tata Docomo confirmed about the withdrawl of the plan of Rs 246 which is to provide a talk time of Rs 219 and 1GB 3G data if recharged further with Rs 4.

That plan is completely withdrawn from all circles, and it is replaced by Tata Docomo’s new unlimited plan for Rs 250 which gives full talktime and unlimited data with FUP. 1GB data will be at 3G speed and then speed will be reduced to 2G for 30 days.

Our reader Adarsha Bhat is informed by Tata Docomo online chat helpline that the speed will be capped to just 64kbps, which is ridiculous.There is another confusion that it is really full time or just 250 minutes to be used for local and national calling valid for 30 days. We will clarify it as soon as we get confirmed.

tata-docomo-unlmited-3G-plan

Note that this is another limited period offer, valid till 31st Decemeber 2012. To activate this plan you can send SMS 3GL to 53333 (toll free).

Prior activating this plan we request you to check with your Customer Care executive.

    All the service providers are cheating the consumers by giving false information. I have used all sim cards available in our country. Nobody is giving proper service to the consumers, as they were promised. For example, recently I have purchased one BSNL 3G sim exclusively for internet purpose. While purchasing the sim, I have recharged for Rs.599/-. This includes 3GB data usage on 3G general, and 4 GB night time usage from 11 pm to 7 am free usage. But this is quite opposite to that what they have promised on 3g speed. I am getting the 3g speed (4 GB usage) during night only, but in day time the speed goes to below the HSDPA speed i.e. EDGE/2G speed of 64 kbps. What is the use of 3G sim? Hence I have decided not to use BSNL further more. I have used Tata Docomo, Airtel sims also. I have the same complaint on both these. Now I am using Aircel 3G services. I am getting the speed of HSDPA i.e. 3G speed. Now there is no problem.

    1. This recharge now offers 222.50 Rs talktime (It will be reduced to 0 step by step.)
    2. They are deliberately misleading the customers by terming this pack as unlimited 3G data pack.

    I have started hating Tata Docomo!

But they know how to cheat the customers and pull back the money from ur balance as well… And such a horrible customer care which is pathetic to speak to dem. They deduct money for some bullshit reasons. i,e; usually people will buy 3G to browse internet.. & whichever downloading sites u visit there will be a Shitty ads of Dive in that websites…. will charge us on a single click & even if u dont click also the amount will be deducted… & if u browse the same website on ur desktop, u can see no such ads existing….

    @all: I have recharged with the unlimited 1 GB plan few days back from retailer special recharge. Till now, everything is okay. no balance deduction, got every thing as expected. Let’s see going forward what happens. I think they removed it from online recharge option as people were misusing it by using pay by existing balance option and recharging for free every time as you get back 250 in main account after recharging.

    never recharge with their rs 250 smartlife plan, tata docomo is cheating customers with this plan , they reduce mobile balance to nil without making a call and say it is due to internet usage( even in free period of one month data usage). They havn’t returned my balance even after many mails.

    The same balance deduction game played with me also!!!

    TataDOCOMO is becoming one of the most customer rejected brand!!!

    Their short-term offers are of no use… it seems their marketing guys are the most non-sense and irresponsible!!!

    Everyone love to see their TV adds, but nobody will become their customers. All the TV adds exactly says what Tata DOCOMO is doing right now!!!

    CC will most of the times are either with no information or wrong information.

    As per their TV add, if you want to complete your stories with Tata DOCOMO, you have to come out of the lift to catch their network :D and without data pack its 10p/10KB!!!

    Tata DOCOMO can hold their customer only with their competitive and attractive tariff plans as their network coverage is very poor and there has been zero improvement in their network QoS.

    now i think even latest plan of 250rs with 1gb 3g data is also revoked.
    docomo is giving new schemes for a very short duration just to get new customers.
    like earlier they gave roaming free in 46 rs and later on revoked that plan.
    now also they did the same for 250rs + 1gb 3g data scheme.

    They advertise unlimited 3g data in the TV , first that should be banned. After a year there could be lots of 3g tariffs because the government is making operators to concrntrate more on data rather on voice services
    But I didnt see any start up from any opesrator. Today I read the news from the BBC that average UK citizens use basic broadband speeds at mbs with only 10 pounds for month which is really cheap ,but here 1mps isn’t affordable,which is real shame for indians.Huwei surveyed by 2020 550 million Indians will use wireless broadband and only 3% will use wired broadband this shows us how slow we are.

    Few points to be noted:
    1)this plan requires different APN i.e. TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNEThvc
    2)after activating this plan if you dont select this apn and browse using TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET it will deduct balance for 3g browsing. No where this is mentioned. They deduct this price and only then you will get to know. Now docomo is also following all this wrong practices to deduct money.
    3) Customer case has no information about correct apn. please take care of this.

    And the this pack has full talktime which will be credited to main balance.
    but you cannot use any Special Call Rate Tariff Voucher for 30 days.
    Call rate plan will be by default 1.2paisa/sec

    Tata DOCOMO is either itself confused or is making others fool.
    The recharge is in fact only giving Local+National min. (only 250). And hey, they then are going to make us suffer from some pathetic 256 kbps speed on 3G network at mobile, and then cap it to 64kbps, that toowhen we change network to 2G.

    And they call it 3G services..
    Believe me, they are going to give it on DIVE-IN APN.. and every person is aware of its pathetic quality.

    @pavan
    Hey… come on !!! he may be confused/not sure when he said “chargeable”. Later, he clarified it.

    In your phone, if you have selected “WCDMA(preferred)/GSM” it works like this:
    - If 3G network is available, your phone will latch to 3G network
    - When there is no 3G n/w, but 2G n/w available, your phone will automatically switch to 2G n/w and again it will switch to 3G network when available

    When a 3G data pack is active on your number, the difference in using data in 3G or 2G network will only the SPEED.

    Also, from January 2012, Tata DOCOMO have separated the 2G and 3G internet packs. If you enable 2G data pack on your number, you will never be able to use 3G network. Also, in your phone settings must be changed to “GSM only” mode.

    Finally, if you have 3G data pack use it in either 3G or 2G n/w, you won’t be charged separately till your validity of the data pack :)

    All for now :)

    @ pavan

    But u know in Aircel suppose I’ve activated 198 3G pack that is 1GB 3G data & then Unlimited 2G !
    Here if I chosen 2G network mode initially or anytime, I’ll get Unlimited 2G. That won’t get deducted from 1GB 3G data.

    But in Docomo, if you select 2G network mode after activating the pack, ur 1 Gb 3G data will get consumed first irrespective of u’ve used in 2G/3G mode, I guess !

    Conclusion -> So for getting Unlimited gprs, we need to exhaust our high speed data first in docomo, but not in Aircel ! And these operators are not ready to provide any USSD codes for checking remaining high speed 3G data, that is ridiculous !

    Why you guys are confused and confusing??

    If you have a 3G data pack active, you can use the bundled data on both 2G network and 3G network as per the network availability.
    It doesn’t matter whether you are on 3G or 2G, till 1GB you will get 3G speed on 3G n/w and 2G speed on 2G n/w. After 1GB, your speed will be reduced. If you want to use your 3G high speed data on 2G n/w, use it.

    According to Tata DOCOMO this STV 250 is available only in “Select Cities”, and if your city is a select city, then just recharge for Rs.250 as a 3G recharge and update your APN. If, there is any issues, there could be a problem ehich CC can never solve it immediately[as they will forward your complaint to concerned department :D and you have to wait...].

    CURRENTLY, STV 250 IS THE BEST IN INDUSTRY CONSIDERING THE BENEFITS..

    Let me clarify.. If you are new customer then you will be chrged 1.2p/sec. for old customers it will be 1p/sec. You can do a Rs.3/- STV for 1p/sec. tariff and activate any STV for low calling charges. I am using this after Rs.250/- recharge and works perfectly. Getting 1p/2sec call charges. Rs.250 talktime credited into main account.

    @Rudradeep thanks for the information :)

    @ All TT readers:

    For 3G circles
    Its STV 250: gives Unlimited data [1GB 3G + 2G UL] and Rs.250 TT to your main balance. On sending “BAL” to 121, in the message you receive, you must see “246 validity xx/xx/2012. Your previous unused data balance will still appear with its validity.

    If you are unable to get the data connection with TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET try TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNETHVC, if no luck, you have to fight with CC as TD offers, most of the time are not available for some numbers.

    Data usage notifications after the disconnection of data will not come, may be because its UNLIMITED. But, Tata DOCOMO has consistent problem with data connection. Sometimes, the data connection goes off by itself and it never connects back. Most of the time a restart of the phone is a must.

    After a prolonged communication/fight with Tata DOCOMO on voice/chat/email support in the month of July and August on the data connection problem, they finally done some improvement in September and it gave me around 90% up time last month. But, recently, the data connection problem has arrived again. Now, with the removal of usage notifications, it’s will be very difficult to know when exactly data disconnected. I guess, TD have purposefully removed the usage notifications, so that user won’t be knowing the data disconnection immediately.

    @All if any of you are facing data connection or any problem, please raise a complaint and get the docket number, and if the complaint is closed without proper resolution, again give one more complaint and do it until you get a proper resolution. These docket numbers will help you a lot if, by any chance, you want to raise the issue in pgportal.gov.in

    Dear Friends,
    I have inquired about the earlier plan of Smart 3g life og 246 + 4 to TD by email and their reply ( recieved on yesterday) is as follows -
    Dear Mr. Sankalecha,

    Greetings for the day!

    This is with reference to your email dated 04.10.12 regarding recharge voucher related concern for the Tata Docomo mobile number 80xxxxxxxx.

    I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to you and apologies for the delayed response.

    Please be informed that on recharge of Smart Life-246, you will get TT of Rs.219/- within 48 Hrs needed to recharge Rs.4/- then will get 1GB data free. We request you to kindly make the recharge as per the information provided.

    Kindly note that the TATADOCOMO web site is updated and you can find all the recharge voucher details clearly by logging on to the site

    We are also accessible from non Tata Docomo phones on 1860-266-5555 (toll free from TATA DOCOMO mobile phones only).

    Assuring you of our best services at all times.

    Warm Regards,
    Jitendra,
    TATA Docomo – Customer Service.

    Now what do you say, this clearly indicates that even their customer service executives are not updated for the ongoing plans???

    TD has history of frequently changing the plans with reducing validity to trap the customers, this is my personal conclusion.

    Also some may feel that this plan is good but TD is assuring/increasing your expenditure as data and TT is of validity of 30days only more over calling cost is 1.2p/sec means 20% higher.

    Saurabh :
    I’m telling this for last time in simple words-
    1. Those who want to use 1GB 3G data and Rs.250 Talktime- First SMS 3GL to 53333 to activate Pay As You Go i.e zero rental 3G pack or if 3G is already active on your number no need to send this SMS. Now recharge with Rs.250, you will get Rs.250 in main balance and 1GB 3G data instantly. Now use tata.docomo.internethvc APN. If you use tata.docomo.internet it will be charged at 10p/10KB. You can’t check remaining data for this pack. But keep SMSing BAL to 121 time to time who knows when Docomo adds this. That’s all.
    Please Note that if you don’t have 3G zero rental active and you recharge with Rs.250, you will get Rs.250 and 2GB 2G data. It will give 2G data even if you are from 3G circle.
    So do SMS 3GL to 53333 if you’re not sure whether 3G is active on your number or not. The other method is if you can latch on 3G network, it means 3G zero rental is active.
    I was checking 2G plans for Haryana and found this Rs.250 2G pack there in the list.
    Briefly- 3G Zero Rental Active -> Rs.250 Recharge -> 1GB 3G Data + Rs.250 Talktime -> APN- tata.docomo.internethvc.
    3G Zero Rental Not Active -> Rs.250 Recharge -> 2GB 2G Data + Rs.250 Talktime -> APN- tata.docomo.internet.
    Users in 2G only circles will get 2GB 2G data and talktime.

    Talktime, as shown in the article is 250 minutes, not Rs. 250.

    Recharge with 250/- and send sms HVC to 52270 to avail 3g data and same time your tariff packs (local or std half call rate plan) if any will be disabled and you will be charged flat 1.2 paisa/sec. so i keep quite and happy at least i got full talk time which i will use through my activated 33/- local & std plan for 2 months. earlier also in 246/- plan I lost , means data i got but it was in 2g mode which was only for show purpose. internet was not getting connected after many complain also. Then i recharge 21/- 3g data for 3 days for check, it was first class and the 1 gb 3g data earlier vanished.

    I TOLD MY EXPERIENCE, PLZ YOU ALL CHECK BEFORE RECHARGE. THANKS

    Thank you so much Saurabh for providing valuable information, such clarity I didnt get from customer care also. Actually when we see balance thru SMS, I think for 3G it is showing 246 validity. I have checked for the same. It is not showing balance. Also call rate is not getting changed if i m not wrong.@ Saurabh

    If its a talktime, then we can recharge again for Rs 250 using the same talktime to get True unlimited 3G.

    1. Just go to tatadocomo website and click recharge.

    2. Select the 3G recharge option and select Rs 250 offer.

    3. Then select “Pay by your current mobile balance” and recharge.

    4. You will get 1GB 3G + Rs 250 talktime again.

    Repeat the process again and again and get True Unlimited 3G.

    I’m telling this for last time in simple words-

    1. Those who want to use 1GB 3G data and Rs.250 Talktime- First SMS 3GL to 53333 to activate Pay As You Go i.e zero rental 3G pack or if 3G is already active on your number no need to send this SMS. Now recharge with Rs.250, you will get Rs.250 in main balance and 1GB 3G data instantly. Now use tata.docomo.internethvc APN. If you use tata.docomo.internet it will be charged at 10p/10KB. You can’t check remaining data for this pack. But keep SMSing BAL to 121 time to time who knows when Docomo adds this. That’s all.

    Please Note that if you don’t have 3G zero rental active and you recharge with Rs.250, you will get Rs.250 and 2GB 2G data. It will give 2G data even if you are from 3G circle.

    So do SMS 3GL to 53333 if you’re not sure whether 3G is active on your number or not. The other method is if you can latch on 3G network, it means 3G zero rental is active.

    I was checking 2G plans for Haryana and found this Rs.250 2G pack there in the list.

    Briefly- 3G Zero Rental Active -> Rs.250 Recharge -> 1GB 3G Data + Rs.250 Talktime -> APN- tata.docomo.internethvc.

    3G Zero Rental Not Active -> Rs.250 Recharge -> 2GB 2G Data + Rs.250 Talktime -> APN- tata.docomo.internet.

    Users in 2G only circles will get 2GB 2G data and talktime.

    Do not go for this crap plan. Atleast in Maharashtra. If u reachrge with the plan you can not use TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET APN. YOU have to use another settings i.e TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNETHVC which gave me downloading speed of 25-40Kbps and was having too much problem opening any webpage. So i activated one day pack of 3G for 5Rs. Now i can use TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET so when i consumed data i can’nt use TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNETHVC. Seems they de-activated my 1GB pack of which i hardly used 200MB. Crap speed. Don’t go for it

  • Saurabh October 4, 2012 5:17 pm, 5:17 PM

    The APNs didn’t appeared in my previous post as I used greater/less sign. Here is the APN for 3G circles- tata.docomo.internethvc and same can be inserted manually in dongle settings too. Using tata.docomo.internet will be charged. In 2G circles, you can use the tata.docomo.internet for 2GB.

    Those who are confused between whether 250 minutes will be given or 250 as talktime, it is confirmed that Rs.250 will be provided doesn’t matter whether you click on Buy Now in 3G plan section or recharge in Online recharge section.

    @Ramesh Darji,

    You are right. As far as HVC is concerned, Tata Docomo has brought a new APN for this plan. You can use 1GB data even without SMSing HVC to 52270. It’s only for getting settings and nothing else. I’ve not subscribed for the service as Tata 3G is not available in my town yet but sent the sms and settings received made me aware of the new APN. The APN for users of this pack will be instead of just . No other changes. So, users from circle where Tata Docomo has 3G can manually set this APN and use the pack. Same APN if you insert SIM in dongle.

    3GL is for activating PAY AS YOU GO plan.

    Calculating 250min at 30p/min, Rs 75 talk-time.
    So Rs 250 – Rs 75 = Rs 175 for 1GB 3G + unlimited 2G.
    Almost same as aircel.

    Mr. Rudrapratap, I will give you some input here. There are lot of confusion for this plan. First of all, where there is no 3G, they will give 2GB internet and full talktime. Also own balance can be used.
    Where there is 3G (3G circle) they offer 250 talk time and 3G 1GB internet and than capping. I have recharged mumbai number with Rs. 250 by using own balance and got same talktime and 2GB internet. But when I have recharged with gujarat number with Rs. 250 by using own balance, got same talktime but got no intenet, as when I have used main balance got deducted. When talked to customer care, I have been informed that for 3G circle, the process for getting internrt free is different. After recharge of Rs. 250, we have to send one SMS HVC to 52270 and than for particular handset one setting will come and than free net can be used. Also balance of internet cant be checked thru *111*1# for 3G circle but for 2G circle balance can be checked.
    Own balance can be used once in a week for same number and for same plan. I have tried same recharge for another time but not able to recharge thru own balance.

    Also there is lot of confusion in site, 250 minutes and 1GB 3G mentioned in site but if u chhose online recharge option and then 3G rechage there Rs. 250 recharge and talktime of Rs. 250 and unlimited internet mentioned.
    Still for my gujarat number I have not got setting, as I got message that my handset is not supporting this service.
    For use of dongle we have to call customer care for setting.
