TelecomTalk’s Verdict: Though plan is exciting, daily SMS plan is not simple as Tata Docomo is offering. Most of users do not need 500 SMS(250 local + 250 national) per day at Rs 60 (0.50 x 4 x 30)per month. It would be better if they come with daily 100 -250 local and national SMS cap at Rs 30 (1st two at 50p and then free) that be best. It is a fact Tata Docomo attracts young people not only because of its per second tariff, but its daily flexible SMS plan also works for!
