Why just free Twitter or FB, when Aircel offers free internet…
Recharge for 108 from Aircel’s website, get 108 Rs Talktime + 108 Free SMS (loc+std) + 108 MB internet free… SMS & Internet valid for 30 days, and if recharged again before end of validity, the balance SMS & Internet will get accumulated to next month… This is really COOL….

And now they have opened a new offer, get a chance to win upto 10 times the recharged amount when u recharge from Aircel’s website…


It should be FACE BOOK. Airtel now going to mad….. Now i hav decided befor next week I am with other network. Go to hellll.
