Well I am not from Idea 3G market, but I can’t understand why would anyone buy this Idea branded phones when we have lots of options to choose from motorola, micromax, spice, xiaomi etc etc…. just for free 3G data for initial 3 or 6 months?? Does idea provides after sales services to their phone users??? and are they network locked??

It’s not just for 3 or 6 months, Idea Smartfone users get 1 GB data @ Rs 127 (half rate). That means savings of Rs 125 every month – assuming one uses 1 GB data every 30 days.

Idea’s Smartphones are not cheap Chinese phones. These are manufactured by reputed companies.

Most of Idea’s phones are actually Alcatel phones with minor changes and after sales service is provided by Alcatel.

Idea Fab is manufactured by Compal Electronics which is one of world’s largest contract manufacturers and makes mobile phones for almost all leading brands including Sony, Nokia, Motorola, Alcatel, Lenovo.
