    In fact vodafone in europe do not loot people ( depending on living standards of europe ). its simple and straight . In india they fool the common man by misguiding and intentional activating some services like hello tunes or sms alerts . i see only docomo which is 99% neat in policy. They provide good service and good value for money! airtel voda all divide india into 23 parts like those british did before independence and rule over consumers and plunder! docomo see india as a single nation.

    Zeal :well, after 31st dec were numbers will not be changed, 1000s of users will switch from vodafone to other providers.

    i heard MNP is delayed
    no news of same in Telecom talk

    Emad :
    vodafone was good when it was Hutch
    Hutch was best operator
    Vodafone is only making money and nothing else

    because hutch had indian people at decision making positions… now these foreign management people at vodafone india calculate tariffs and profits in euros and pounds. hence this mismatch and higher tariff for india. they think they can make indian market and indian customers behave like in u.k and europe.

  • kamath December 24, 2009 4:08 pm

    so from when did ‘innovative’ became equal to ‘copying’? unlimited sms pack was introduced by rcom, not vodafone. vodafone… don’t abuse the world innovative and stick it on whenever and wherever you guys like!

    this not only for vodafone but also to other telcos (airtel, rcom, tata, idea etc)… pls don’t abuse customers intelligence by loosely using innovative anywhere you want.

    apart from being UN-innovative(copying), vodafone offer is also UN-competitive! first, reduce the price of rs.1-1.50 for regular sms (which majority of customers use or need). 500sms/day or 15,000 sms/month for rs.50-90/month (in diff states) means that sms costs are appx. 3-4 paisa with vodafone… so why is it charging rs.1.50 for regular sms charges.

    does any product or any category in the world has 100-150 times difference between retail and wholesale prices? this clearly shows that vodafone and other telcos still charging rs.1-1.50 are looting customers! what is TRAI doing? sleeping? or being paid for sleeping? only god knows.

    ———————————————————————————

    secondly, i completely agree with the view of the gentleman who wrote this below… its exactly what most vodafone customers think and number portability will indeed expose vodafone’s standing.

    vodafone is the worst mobile company in india… worse than airtel. it has so many confusing packs… different for diff states, many conditions and fine prints… first call full rates, making it costlier and confusing.

    what is great about reliance mobile or docomo is that they don’t charge you indirectly with first call full rates, no confusing or costly packs. simple and transparent tariff all over india. no bias against any state.

    vodafone advertises itself as a premium brand, but in reality acts like a 3rd class cheap brand… by charging indirectly, many fine prints and conditions! if it has the guts and confidence in its brand.. it should be charging a higher rate DIRECTLY but with simplified plan structure like rcom or docomo.

    leave alone unlimited sms packs, vodafone is still charging re.1 & rs.1.50 for local, national and roaming SMS… even when it has been exposed that sms costs are less than 1/2 or .5 paisa!!!

    the problem with vodafone is its new firangi ceo & marketing head. they don’t understand india and indians and are trying to loot people. they think that zoozoo’s will make people pay 5-10 times more than competition! thats their attitude.

    i love zoozoo but i hate vodafone. vodafone will be humbled only when people stop buying their products and services! mnp would have been a great opportunity to show them their place, but alas that too has been delayed.

    it may be late but in next few months vodafone will be shown its true place by people and customers of india, when they get the power of choice through number portability!

    vinay :@Rohan yes. rel is swadesi n economical whereas voda is foreign n costly. further its not merely 89 but 119/-

    next demand from reliance – make all calls free for us ( swadesi )

  • SHANKAR December 22, 2009 7:50 am

    Im using vodafone for past 2 yrs. It has very badly hit on pocket. vodafone is hell xpensive.. If MNP is implemented soon i will switch to my old reliance..

    We have Vodafone doggies here too who are willing to pay them 89 for a month for sms which they are getting at 25 Rs from reliance (DESH DROHI )

  • vinay December 22, 2009 12:23 am

    @kaushik so ultimately its rental is 89+30 = 119. clever fooling!

  • kaushik December 21, 2009 10:09 pm

    Rs 89 per month is OK
    but re 1 daily rental is unnecessary

  • zareef December 21, 2009 3:02 pm

    Message sending depends on network.. If both sender and reciver is then no problem.. If any one have bad coverage. It get falled or get late delivered.. Its depend on message setting also.. If you put maximum period in message setting.. You get day back message also

  • amarjit December 21, 2009 12:57 pm

    Reliance is worst service provider compare to vodafone but they are very innovative when it comes for plan whether call or sms

    ishan :vodafone kolkata unlimited sms packs—>>Rs. 29; validity-10 days; 500 local & national sms/day.Rs.80; validity-30 days; 500 local & national sms/day.This pack is to be used for non commercial purpose only.The free SMS do not apply on the peak charging days.but its too costly compared to reliance..

    Reliance offering the same thing in Rs.25. what the hell is vodafone doing? its pathetic. reliance CDMA and GSM network is now a days quite ok. who will opt this bakwas offer from vodafone.

    i heard about message delivery problem from Reliance.Message sent today reached next dayis it true ?

    I think you heard. have you ever used it and faced the problem at your own? so first use it then comment.

  • Ram December 21, 2009 9:10 am

    Reliance is better than all the network in Indian. No confusion, No problem. But only connectivity as to as to be improve. Because I am getting poor connectivity in my place. (Tamil Nadu circle)

    If connectivity improves, surly people will migrate to Reliance. Same time Reliance will give Add-on speciality means it will much more better than any other network in the country.

  • zeeshan December 21, 2009 12:23 am

    Vodafone is making and also available at their website or youtube.@kaushik

  • kaushik December 21, 2009 12:21 am

    @Prasath J
    Vodafone will surely make an advertisement with ZOO-ZOO regarding this SMS pack

  • Prasath J December 21, 2009 12:19 am

    Rs89+Rs30 (daily Rental) —> Rs119/- Nowadays people even doesnt spend this much amount for making calls, then why spend this much for SMS and that too non-roaming SMS???

    With 119Rs original simple Reliance customers without a pack can send upto 238 SMS (even in ROAMING) a month or with Rs25/month can use that amount for nearly 5 months or upto 500SMS/day…

    If vodafone changed the Rs89/month to Rs89/year or two, then it will be a OK type of offer (SEE even then it cannot win Reliance’s SMS offer)

  • kaushik December 21, 2009 12:07 am

    what is fair usage policy ? like here 500 SMS per day not unlimited
    can any one explain

  • zeeshan December 20, 2009 11:51 pm

    It is not necessary that there should be fault of Reliance network because if originator is reliance network and message sent is failed then there is problem in reliance but if message has been sent by one network reaches after a long period of one day or more, in such case recipient network may have some problem. In short “for sending message or even in calling, both networks are significant”. @kaushik

  • waseem December 20, 2009 11:51 pm

    @kaushik
    no its not true. i am using this reliance plan for last 10 days and until now i never face any kind of such a problem.JAI HO RELIANCE AND TATA ALSO(fultoos swedeshi and they are the best)

    Reliance though they provide cheapest rates but they are very cheap in practice.. The worst service provider award goes to reliance smart gsm..

  • Kevin December 20, 2009 4:24 pm

    @Sanjay Bafna

    Boss by on net I meant the msgs can oly be sent from the home circle to anywhere in india and not when roaming. For that this is too costly(Rs.119) to be innovative.

  • zareef December 20, 2009 4:18 pm

    89+daily 1 rupees rent… Validaty just 1 month. Ufff yeh ka plan hai ?

  • zareef December 20, 2009 4:16 pm

    Bakkkkkwaaasss plan hai… Use reliance is better then vodafone…

    @ Mr. Sanjaybafna

    If this is what you call innovation I pity u! They charge Rs.89+30= Rs.119 per month for on net free SMS at such a huge price and u are terming it as innovation :D

    plz read full news carefully b4 comment,UNILIMITED SMS TO ANY NETWORK ACROOS INDIA,not on net which you think.

  • Emad December 20, 2009 2:55 pm

    IDRIS :
    THEY ARE BEFOOL CUSTOMERS IS IT WORTH SPENDING Rs89+Rs30 = Rs119 JUST FOR SMS PACK WHEN RELIANCE OFFERS UNLIMITED SMS FOR RS 25 EVEN IN ROAMING OR ANOTHER OPTION WOULD BE 1P SMS WHERE THEY CHARGE ONLY RS15 /MONTH. IN GENERAL PLAN THEY CHARGE 50P
    /SMS THAT MEANS FOR 119 WE CAN SEND 238 SMSES IN GENERAL PLAN OR IF WE TAKE SPECIOAL PLAN IN RILIANCE IT CAN GIVE SMS PACK FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. SO ONLY FOOLS WILL OPT THE VODAFONE SMS PACKS.
    CLEVER PEOPLE USE RELIANCE

    Because they are GREEDY…

    EVERY ONE should also NOTE DOWN that, only RELIANCE is offering the FREE/One Paisa SMS benefits in ROAMING also…

    Rs89+Rs30 = Rs119 JUST FOR SMS a month and that too NOT USABLE in ROAMING???? Ridiculous offer…
