reliances cdma mobile worst services for the last 6 months in rajajipuram lucknow pin-226017 area…..


I am going out of Reliance CDMA due to poor network. They are very prompt in follow up calls for payment, not in
providing network. Call Fail is a common complaint. I have to travel half kilometer and stand near the RIL tower to make/receive calls. Otherwise I won’t get network. This is happening just within 15 Kilometers radius of Bangalore city.

I am fed-Up, and let me say a Good-bye for ever to Reliance Communications CDMA network.
