I activated Rs-5 gprs pack on 23/11/11 at 12:40 am. Used only some kbs & last flash sms showed I had 49.28 MB left as on 23/11/11 at 12:50 am which had a validity till 11:59 pm of 23/11/11.
Today(23/11/11) morning when I browsed for sometime, I noticed that nearly Re-1 has been deducted from my a/c & I had no active pack subscription!
What the heck?
