Finally Idea has also bring the much awaited GPRS usage check facility for its customers. From yesterday Idea users in Haryana(Don’t know about other circles) are getting remaining GPRS data left in their acc. info. through SMS at the end of every session. The SMS not only contains data left and validity info. but also the data used in last session and duration. But they should have brought this thru USSD. Still no info. regarding SMS keywords to know data balance.


is there any comparison chart for 3g data card or sim..just guide me which will be cheaper for a usage of minimum 5GB per month….
