I have Reliance 3G unlimited @ just 868 per month with unlimited calling, unlimited roaming , unlimited sms and unlimited 3G DATA????????. I can use in dongle also and 3G speed is unlimited too without any capping. In roaming i get connected to aircel 3G where Rcom 3G not available. And i get connected to vodafone and aircel network where Rcom 2G coverage is not avilable in Remote villages areas. So why use [email protected] 949 PER MONTH. I get around 8-9 mbps whole day in my area and at night time i get 13- 14 mbps in my area.

its POSTPAID But you need to pay in ARP mode. i.e, ADVANCE RENTAL PLAN. its 868.75*12 =10425 for 1 YR or 868.75*24=20850 for 2 YRS. you can buy it from any Reliance mobile store. but most of the stores does not know about this plan. I Personally purchased from Reliance Mobile Store Raniganj, WB. you will be billed ZERO for each and every month as you already paid in ARP method. you give me your email id I will send my bill if you don’t believe me.

No question of not believing.
You bill with service tax & other charges, also consider bank interest and then compare with prepaid denomination. Ok ?

In zero plan there will be zero bill. So no case for wrong you alredy paid for 1 yr or 2 yr. You will only be billed only if you use messages more than the limit of 3000 per month. , in case you messagd on premium number like 58282 or simply the numbers except mobile numbers and third case is also for sms in which sns will be charged in blackout days. These were the 3 cases in which you will be only charged. And rest all are unlimited. In 10425 you get 600 something rupees as back… Read more »

In real situation they are the owner of your connection, not you.
You may leave postpaid if they realise/allow you to do so.

This is the final amount 10425 & 20850 all tax and other charges are included. For considering bank interest this will be around 11000/- then , 916 /- per moth will be the charge. and that to at 949 its available in CDMA not 3G . In CDMA you need to stick in same CDMA stick or smartphone with cdma HSD capability with maximum of 3.1 mbps and in few places its 9.8 mbps but it never gives. and In gsm 3G you can change handsets at any time or you can put in dongle too without any restriction .… Read more »

Fit for you.
I personally don’t like postpaid as can not be easily opt out of it.
There is always chances of wrong billing.
In case of of one time payment in a year, they will bill after one year without your consent.
Learnt these from my previous experiences with different operators.
