Hey Emad,

I think you really deserve to be known as a stupid customer of tata docomo.. I think your life is big problem which nobody can solve. There is innovation happening in tata docomo’s service like online chat service for the customers and you are the exception for such service with your reactions like throwing sim card which will never solve your problem. If you switch to any other mobile service provider n if u face some technical issues you will throw another sim card and then you will spread negative viral messages…
