Idea Cellular users have a reason to rejoice on New Year, Offers Free SMS Benefits During Blackout Days

As the New Year count down begins generally our Operators send their customers reminder sms about Blackout days as defined in TRAI regulations and inform users that they will be charged as per their Base Tariff on special days.

But this time seems like Idea Cellular users have a reason to rejoice as Idea Cellular is offering its users with special SMS pack saying “Just for you!”  which gives SMS benefit to be used only on Blackout days.

Definitely a reason to rejoice as users are getting 50 Local & STD SMS for just Rs 5 especially on Blackout Days. This justifies a customer’s perspective i’ll pay you and you provide me better services 🙂 .

Not sure whether this offering is only for selected users or selected circles but if you receive this sms you are the ones just special to get benefited 🙂

Dear Idea cellular users, have you received this sms? If so from which circle ? If any other operator has sent such msgs do let us know via comments.

Not applicable in Punjab. This is another trick to fool customers. Until someone knows about it he/she would have sent 200-300 sms to friend/family circle and later a big bill on his /her door. Private operators are good in making fool by emotional msgs. I am sure this is applicable to some customers or some circles only. Rest will follow in such confusion and in two days Idea will mint around few lakhs/crores considering their huge user base. Thank god BSNL and MTNL don’t do such cheap tricks. Billing is always done honestly. I hope they (state govt enterprises) will… Read more »

Hi! I have filed many complaints at TRAI (EMail ID: (GSM Services), (CDMA Services)) but not received any confirmation even for a single mail.
First write a mail to nodal officer and appellate authority of the company. You will get the resolution within 3 working days (Maximum 7 working days). Send remainder mail daily. The issue will get resolved
If they have not cleared the issue properly, File a case at Local Consumer Court. Nodal Team will come to the consumer feet
