mobile operators

The first cell phone connection that I took was a prepaid connection from Idea mobile (formerly bpl mobile) from the birla group. That was because most of my students(from IT field) were having idea connection, even though airtel was the most popular network at that time.

That connection was mainly for my father's usage when he had to go to the hospital for treatment for diabetic related problems.

Then after some time, my brother took a connection from airtel. He was just going through the various options and set up caller tunes. He just used it for 1 month and realised that it was a waste of money and then cancelled it off by calling the customer service centre.

The idea connection was put to a lot of use for std calls by me for calling my fiancee. There were some nice schemes like std call of 3 minutes for one rupee or so for 1 month etc.

When we travel to Tamil nadu (roaming) the idea connection usually shifts to aircel network. There are some parts of the highway, where there is no connectivity .

Then after some time my brother took a bsnl connection and a cell phone with the capacity to handle dual simcards. He would charge it with a special recharge which would give him a lot of free calls on the bsnl network.

I also took up a bsnl prepaid connection based on the pyari jodi plan which gives me free calls to my landline number. The network coverage also seems to be better than idea network while roaming.

I usually go for recharge with full talktime via the flexi route . Some ladies do not like this because they have to leave their cell phone numbers at the shop. Idea had a nice recharge coupon at Rs. 125/- which gives full talktime.

Recently I took up a virgin mobile connection which gave an offer of 25 ps per call(per minute) even for std calls. There seems to be some tieup with tata docomo.
