Nice Article!I am never in favor of the lifetime recharge coupons. These companies are very smart in making fools of the subscribers.But Reliance lifetime offer is very interesting as it allows the subscriber to select the tariff plan according to recharge voucher.Apart from Reliance all other operators are fooling us in name of lifetime validity. :angry: So dont fall in their well laid Trap.

They can not only survive but enjoy milking their subscribers.Have u seen offers made to subscribers outside mumbai, many operators give calls within network at 10p/min and free sms for nominal rental like 1Re/day or 1.5Rs./day, but for Mumbai subscribers they give nothing away.I guess they milk a lot of money from Mumbai People considering the fact that Mumbai is commercial capital and most people here have lot of money...

Milk : 25 Rs / Ltr
Petrol : 50 Rs / Ltr

Don't even discuss real estate rentals :angry:

dat article is not entirely correct, with Airtel u dont need to recharge every six months and only a single incoming/outgoing call within this period will suffice.Besides he is stressing a lot on TRAI, which i think is only a recommendatory body..half of their recommendations go unheard by DOT

A BBC program once said - "Mumbai is so costly that a shanty with one room in slums of Mumbai will turn out costly for most people in most countries including Great Britain". Go figure why ONE SMS on Hutch costs Rs.1.5 while people outside Mumbai circle can send 150 messages in the same amount! :confused:
