I’ve Observed The Idea and Docomo Coverage. Idea Has Strongest Coverage In Maharashtra Whereas Docomo is Having Worst Coverage Even If I Head For Aurangabad, Pune Mumbai or Kolhapur TD Signals are Not Available Where as Idea Available. Guru Zara Socho Agar Tu Docomo Leke Mumbai Jaoge To Mumbai Ke Juhu Beach Ke Paas Docomo Nahi Milta.
