Dear Idea cellular,
Please don’t just regret for the inconvenience caused to your customers, I think idea charges for data on Roaming, so be frank and tell the customers that idea network charges for data roaming in other circles.

If possible work towards it, so that the benefits is received by the customers on roaming and data is counted from data pack.

It is horrible network. If you take prepaid 3g bundled plan. The speed will be so slow, that the data will not be used even 50% in prescribed time limit. And if your time limit expires, the speed will increase and your balance will be consumes by Rs.300 to Rs.400 per hour. As the rate is so high. I took 1GB data plan with validity of 30 days. In 30 days, only .5GB was used and when I used after 30 days, in one hour, 8mb data and Rs 160 was deducted by Idea network. And when I asked they… Read more »
