voice or data packs, stvs are very confusing :-X


Sorry to say, There is no confusion from MTS, I am using all the product and it is good In RoWb
No problem.The call rate are cheapest and stv are also good, Always full talk time , sms lowest ever others. Data 1x is lowest and Evdo is something high priced but there are many offers.

Yes u are right until and unless MTS gets Pan India License .MTS cant grow.hope it get the PAN-India license in the next auction as and when it happens
