Hello EverybodyI have converted to a corporate account in IDEA Cellular from Tata Docomo recently.My current credit limit is just Rs 750 as not even one month lapsed yet.I wanted to add GPRS pack for my number.But, nobody including the website are providing exact information regarding the per KB charges in unbilled usage even when a 98 Rs GPRS pack is activated.I don't want to cross my credit limit while using the GPRS pack's provided data cap.So, can any one from Bangalore, Karnataka who uses IDEA postpaid let me know the information i require?

Unbilled for data does not depend on credit limit as long as you stay within 2GB

Are you very sure ?
My bro had to shell out thousands of Rupees for crossing the credit limit despite he having a 3G data pack activated.
Also, he didn't exceed both the Data Pack's bandwidth cap and voice's plans available minutes.

So, at least 3G, unbilled usage still counts even if a data pack is active.
Please confirm the non-existent of the same in 2G.

idea charges you, for every penny you got, if you cross over the limit they will charge you for 1p/Kb till you exhaust your balance. I think you should just go back to DOCOMO best service there is/

Well, they cannot charge you based on unbilled on whatever network you are as long as you don't exceed the data limit. I know because, when I'd got idea, the unbilled would often reach 9 - 10k. Idea, I believe , cheated you. If this was a recent case , write a nice mail to them, they'll most probably give you your money back.

This particular reply you have given is very important for me.

My bro has shelled out around 2k for crossing the credit limit by using 3G data even after adding a Data pack.

One of other member in this forum too went through similar problem.http://broadbandforum.in/idea-mobile/70704-idea-postpaid-unbilled-usage-scam/

Can you confirm one important information.
Wasn't your credit limit more than 10k while your unbilled usage being reached 10k?

The information you will be providing would be very crucial in reclaiming the money from IDEA, as it was a recent incident.

IDEA people insisted that, you have to pay for crossing the credit limit as the data pack's benefit is only applicable upon bill generation.

Alright . My credit limit was 500 bucks when I started, on account of being a good customer, idea increased my credit limit to 2000. However, once while casually checking my unbilled, I saw that it had reached 9k, called up CC, they told that I had no reason to worry, as I'd got 2GB of data and that unbilled for data has no impact on credit limit.

When I ported out from idea, those chaps wanted me to pay 4k unbilled, sent a mail to care.dl@idea.adityabirla.co.in (dl being my circle code). Within an hour , I received numerous calls from higher ups apologizing etc and my number was ported out the same day.

Hope this helps :)
