Videocon Mobile Services Commercial Launch In Mumbai On April07,2010

Exactly a month later after the  announcement of launch by Videocon Mobile Services on Colors TV channel last month by featuring “DHAMAKE KA SIGNAL” on March,07  is all set to launch its GSM Services commercially in Mumbai on April,07,2010.

Till now Signals of Videocon Mobile Services are not LIVE in many parts of Mumbai, but to avoid initial network glitches or coverage issues, Videocon has tied up with Mumbai’s Loop Mobile (BPL Mobile) for sharing its Mobile network which means that initially for some period of time Videocon will be using Loop Mobile’s network till whole infrastructure (Towers) of Videocon is Ready.

We would also like to clear that Videocon has NOT purchased any stake wholly/partially in Loop Mobile and also Videocon is not an MVNO like Virgin Mobile.

To ensure better availability of the SIM-Cards, all the Planet-M & NEXT showrooms across Mumbai, Navi-Mumbai and Thane are already loaded with the stock of  Sim-cards.

The Teasers and outdoor Publicity are on its way for a Powerful and Dhamakedar Launch.For More Information: Log onto Videocon Website or Call V-Help at 9076012345.

    Less said the better about post-subscribed services to its customers ! One cannot recharge the sim from none other than the authorized gallery/outlets or retailers. A service provider is best judged from its after-sales services

    Of all the operators currently operating in Mumbai, the best Videocon could find was Loop Mobile? Hah! The newest entrant has tied up with the worst network in Mumbai.
    Despite being in the market for more than 16 years, Loop Mobile (BPL Mobile) has hardly upgraded its service quality. God save Videocon!

    Cheated again when i went to buy sim today No retailer / Shops in mumbai, Thane , Navi Mumbai have videocon sim. they betraying people again and again by giving fake launch dates . even today their website doesn’t show mumbai circle. in many parts of mumbai Etisalat DB – Mumbai 405 919 and Uninor – Mumbai 405 926 signal is visible. hope they launch before videocon and Dont cheat like videocon. videocon network is not visible and they are depending upon others for infrastructure (tower) and they say that they have EDGE / 3g ready network. they will also cheat with tariffs also and i think the network will not as Dhamakedar as expected and as they publicised

    Reply
  • kaushik April 7, 2010 12:39 pm, 12:39 PM

    already Mumbai is most congested circle with so many operators and why people will take videocon when their tariff is not good at all
    alraedy they making people fool and in future very few people will take their connection
    their brand will be affected by this even b4 their service launch

    hey!! buddy.. i dnt completely buy ur thoughts but ya!! in Mumbai they were about to launch on Feb. 2010 but the commercial launch delayed due to the extension of TESTING PERIOD to give customer a TROUBLE FREE NETWORK!!

    n tamil nadu circle was to be launched with their services in august 2009 but again got delayed due to some regulatory issues!! yes..punjab was on their list for the launch and they are continuing with their launch n ya atlast i agree with you totally on the fact that THEY SHOULD ATLEAST DELIVER WHAT THEY PROMISE IN PUBLIC, like thei launch in Mumbai on March,07…2010..!!

    thanks buddy for your comment!!

    Another fake launch Date ! First in a Company Statement Videocon said it will GSM service in mumbai in february & then said in March and now in April. But They Told They will launch service in Tamilnadu in August but launched in March. and they are busy launching in Punjab now. Who will the roaming partner for videcon in Rest of Maharashtra ? its Vodafone B’coz Loop (Essar) holds Stake in Vodafone and for Loop vodafone is roaming Partner. But Vodafone Network is really Worst / horrible Coverage in Rest of maharashtra

    @Rajesh Kumar
    its launched very recently thats why you may be facing some initial glitches,
    if you face any kind of network problems then do report on 121 from your videocon phone or you can report your problems by sending an e-mail at “121@videocon.com”.

    thanks!!
