I think what Saurabh said is correct. In unlimited 3G minutes pack, the pulse rate is 1 minute and not 1 second. So the balance will ne deducted by 1 minute even if you have used for 30 seconds. Note that it is data and not voice. If you have enabled per second voice pack, that doesn’t mean that it should apply for data also.

From this note that all unlimited 3G minutes pack will be charged every 1 minute basis and not per second basis.


Alert :

Not even a single data pack (2G or 3G) will work while national roaming and you will be charged Rs.0.10 per 10 KB. I think this will apply to Idea customers in all the circles.

Even airtel 3G pack will not work in national roaming. I don’t know about other operators.
