Uninor is been offering a really good services with Vayadi Pack where we got 2 months free calls to Uninor numbers. I started buying 2, 3, then 4 connections and give to my frens where we get 2 call each other 4 free! My only complaint is that they don’t have enough TV advertising. Lots of ppl dont know about the product. But I feel if more ppl know, then they wont give such good deal!
