The Same cheating is done by aircel in most of the circles, even though they haven’t lose their licenses. People were behind these private operators and finally they betrayed them. I suggest people better to port out to MTNL / Bsnl . You can really trust them.

Hey Amit,

Considering Uninor is the only network providing best rates, it clearly reveals how consumer centric they are.. “Don’t blame Uninor, blame TRAI”
If Govt so concerned about customers, they should give Uninor new license. Customers want cheap tariffs not refunds.
