MTS India Withdraws FREE Missed Call Alert in Kolkata

By March 12th, 2010 AT 6:39 PM

MTS India the CDMA mobile service operator’s Honeymoon time with Kolkata is over. Earlier we reported of MTS India has withdrawn daily 100 sms pack and introduces new sms packs offering 10p/sms. Now here is another sad news for MTS customers in Kolkata and WB circle that Missed Call Alert service is now chargeable service. However from the launch in these two circles MTS India is offering missed call alert free of cost to all customers.

Now MTS has issued a SMS to all MTS customers in Kolkata circle which states: Missed Call Alert service will be deactivated from 20/03/10. To avail the service reply with with SUB to 50009. Charges Rs. 15/month. That means no more free missed alert from MTS India, pay for them.

In Kolkata circle State run BSNL and Tata Docomo the youngest GSM service operator also providing the Free MCA service. Kolkata telecom circle shows Tata Docomo’s popularity due to its SMS scheme (daily 100 local and national sms free after 1st 2 SMS charged) over Idea Cellular which launched just a week after Tata Docomo’s. New sms packs from MTS will keep the young generation at bay. Though MTS still makes the MSaver95 available to offer local calling at 1p/2sec and STD at 1p/sec for lifetime without no hidden cost or daily rental, these two negative (for the subscribers) steps tell that MTS is changing and following other Indian telecom biggies like Airtel, Vodafone & Idea.
