hey i hv been noticing since past few months that idea's network has been becoming poorer by the day. Though the no. of sms's frm idea saying " Now enjoy greater coverage in areas ..........blah blah blah"
are increasing. First there were increasing no. of call not being completed due to network congestion and cross-connections. And now the deteriorating quality of the network signal. And its not me alone i know many ppl who are facing the same problems.

In my area Idea did agreed that problem is there .They said a new tower would come up by october which will led to increase cell reception. Yet to see improvement. Infact i had stopped complaining now. Just waiting for MNP to change my operator.

"The Government is understood to have rejected telecom regulator TRAIs recommendations on mobile number portability (MNP) saying this should not be mandated by the Licensor or the Regulator, as it would deny subscribers the freedom to change operator without changing the number.
Since MNP is not a mandatory service and in view of the competitive environment, it was felt that the sharing of cost upgradation for such facilities should not be mandated by the Licensor (Department of Telecom) or the Regulator and should be left to the commercial judgement of the service providers, sources said.

TRAI had in March recommended that DoT implement the facility by April 2007, saying the Government may mandate all Cellular Mobile Service Providers to offer MNP, initially to be introduced within the service area only.

DoT is of the view that these recommendations are not covered under the particular clause of the TRAI Act 1997 and therefore, in case of not accepting the recommendations, it is not necessary to refer them back to TRAI before taking a final decision.

It is pertinent to mention that some of the countries like Japan have already implemented MNP and according to analysts, both operators and subscribers have benefited.

Further, DoT noted that the MNP cannot be implemented across all mobile subscribers due to technical variations between GSM and CDMA

Well you are not alone. I have really awful problems with 2 idea connections. I would've switched to voda, if only it was cheaper.
