Of topic: Vodafone has launched their own 3g in up west circle. I’m able to use their own 3g from last 10 days earlier I was not able to latch their own 3g. But now im able to use. Speed is also so high compare to idea and Airtel. One more benefit of Vodafone is you can latch on idea and Airtel 3g. Which makes me the fan of Vodafone. Best offers also kills these better then idea


Today..I ported fro idea to vodafone and got local call@1.2p/2sec for 90days. I was given 50mb 3g net also, but mistakenly i dialled 1925 to stop default data charge without net pack..but after that my 50mb data pack has gone!!!! This was not the case with idea, they simply stops data charge from main a/c!

Then whats the use of 1925??


data balance “0” hoy na.. 1925 data service stop Kore ba start Kore….. You can complaint against fraudafone cheating business.


Restart data services from 1925 and you should be back from where you left your data pack. Atleast that is what happened with my Vodafone Postpaid. On deactivation through 1925, your gprs service is suspended however the data pack remains active.
