Airtel the worst company i ever experienced..They loot the customer in every field whether its automatic service activation, automatic balance deduction or whether in terms of call rates.Airtel is the company i will never suggest to any customer who has specific budget for mobile solutions.Go for BSNL the best and most reliable service provider in the country. i am using BSNL from last 8 years and didnt experienced any such problems that i faced in Airtel in just 2 months of use.
