It is NOT A GOOD IDEA as the DATA CHARGES ARE HIGHEST
IDEA CHARGES YOU Rs. 999/- PER MONTH FOR UNLIMITED.
IDEA CHARGES YOU 20 PAISE FOR 10 KB WHICH AGAIN A HUGE AMOUNT THEY NEED TO COME WITH LOWER RATE GPRS PLANS. BEFORE THEY COME WITH ANY OTHER IDEA.

WORST PART IS IN POSTPAID THEY CAHARGE Rs. 50 / MONTH FOR CALL DIVERT SERVICE ACTIVATION + CALL CHARGES.. WHICH IS NOT AT ALL A GOOD IDEA THE SAME DIVERT SERVICE IS FREE WITH OTHERS. ONLY CALL CHARGE APPLY THAT IS EXCELLENT BUT IDEA IS FULL OF BAD IDEAS…AND BEFOOLING CUSTOMERS…
