  1. Infact I got a email response from RCOM CC. The mail says, ' As per our records, the old tariff plan has expired on your number & therefore, you are now being charged as per the new tariff plan of 60p/min.'' When I again replied to that email saying that when I bought the number, the offers were such wherein I was provided with the tariff validity of lifetime & not for a specific time frame, to that I get the reply, '' SAME AS ABOVE". The whole email remain the same just the name of the person sending changes.. lazy people ;-) Neways, I am thinking of taking this forward to the Nodal Officer & other concerned. I guess need some time before I start the long battle of complaints and all.. when did u took the connection?? was it around 15-16 months back, Because reliance had stopped recharge with life time tariff validity around that time, instead they hav started rechange with valididy of 365 days...My number is on life time tariff validity and still charged @ 50ps When I took this connection, the tariff validity was for lifetime only.. It was only after 5-7 days I took the number, the 365 days validity has started to kick in.. I did confirm at that time & I was indeed informed that my number is on a lifetime tariff validity.

  3. I guess they have started changing their tariff for their old customers also.. I just made a call from my RGSM number yesterday after almost 3 months & saw that the balance was being deducted @ 60p/min. My default tariff was 50p. I have emailed the CC on this, lets see what response I get.. If they have indeed changed the tariff plan even for the lifetime valid tariff customers, this is clearly cheating by them.. Other please confirm ???
  4. Dude this is not true.. I agree with others that the network of RCDMA is one of the best even when compared to Vodafone, Airtel among others.. yours may be a case of problem in handset or RUIM card.. As far as signals in metro stations go, this is a problem not only with RCDMA, but with almost all the operators.Specially in the underground metro line, the connectivity of all the operators is bad. This is due to the reason that the network boosters installed in the metro stations have not been working to their full capacity off late. Infact I did mark an email to the metro people on this, to which I was informed that those signal boosters were installed keeping in mind a very basic number of people would be using their mobile phones, however, this was not the case. They are in the process of upgrading the signal boosters installed in the underground line, but any improvement would be noticed only in the beginning of 2011..
  5. Well this is totally expected from Reliance.. I do have this feeling that Reliance like in case of SMS packs would also modify the charges in this plan once it gains popularity.. Anyways, even with the current cost structure, reliance is indeed making money on this plan.. Here what I can make of.. OFFNET : On off-net calls, reliance is giving 900 mins. for an amout of Rs.299. That comes out to Re 0.33p/ min.. now even if 20p/min Interconnect charge is deducted, reliance is still making 13p/min on this tariff.. Now the best part comes here, considering that the user does not make 30 mins/day.. Reliance share of per call charge increase at a very rapid pace.. For e.g a user uses just 25 mins/day, thereby leaving 5 mins./day which comes out to 150 mins./month. Now out of the 900 mins, if 150 mins is reduced, on the balance 750 mins, reliance would get a revenue of 39p/min which translates to 19p/min after IUC.. So, I must say, the people at reliance who have designed this plan have been pretty smart on making the finer details of this plan. The company is in every way going to make a profit of 13p/min atleast with chances of huge upside depending from user to user.. ON-NET : On the on-net front, even if the cap of 2700 mins is taken into consideration, the company is still making huge money on this plan.. at 2700 mins for Rs.299, the per call comes to around 11p/min on a call for which the company does not have to pay nething to neone else ( IUC) Reliance has indeed come out with a very smart plan which would really help the company more in terms of revenue & profits..
  6. I guess reliance is now showing its true colours finally.. first they stopped giving full talktime on all its top-ups.. now they have increased their SMS pack charges.. I gues much more is yet to come.. I wonder what they would increase next ?? However, I cant understand one things, why the hell have they kept higher charges for Delhi customers ? :angry: I mean why should delhi customers pay more as compared to rest of the country... this is so damn crap thing from a company like Reliance.I cn expect this type of differential tariff from other companies, but never thought Reliance would do this.
  7. Now that this topic has been almost month n half old, I thought of re-activating this topic.. It has been seen in the last 2 months or so that dual sim phones are now becoming more of an obsession rather than a feature, with almost all companies except Nokia, LG, SE, Motorola coming out of dual sim phones.. Although many of the companies coming out of these type of phones happen to be indian companies importing their handsets from China, however, a few like Micromax have started production in India itself of many of such phones. Although many & almost every new company coming out with phones these days have dual sim phones, however, the concept of 3 sim or Tri-Sim is fast catching up.. as of now , what we have seen tri-sim phones as are GSM+GSM+CDMA. Although the intention is gud of these companies to bring out with tri-sim phones, I just cant think why these companies are not providing decent batteries upward of 1400 maH in these phones. Anyways, that is their option.. My reason to re-activate this topic is to discuss with all the RimWebiians whether this concept of Tri-Sim phones, is worth a DEKKO. I mean do they think Tri-Sim phones would be successful in India for now.. also, out of a few Tri-Sim phones, which is to the liking of many of us here.. Name a few.. Out of the Trim-Sim phones I have seen & observed, I would like to name them as follows in the order of highest to lowest priority, FEATURE WISE : 1. Olive GC800 ( upcoming) GSM+GSM+CDMA ( QWERTY phone) The 1st of its kind.. 2. Intex IN 5030 3. Videocon VC1425 4. GEE PEE 6230 ( Most expensive of all, dont know why ) Are there any other Tri-Sim phones which RimWebiians have seen or got information about ? If so, please do share your views on the same..
  8. Exactly..infact I have noticed the same improvement in the SMS thingy also. though some problem still remains, but stil, things have become a bit better on tht front.
  9. I doubt RCOM would come out with such an offer anytime soon. though they may hav such offer one or the other, but that would be in the higher denomination category like upwards of 200 bucks.. Going by the interview of the president of RCOM for Wireless which is posted smwhere in these forums as well, I really get this idea that RCOM would now improve its network & ensure customers stay on its network rather than luring customers to stay on its network due to such offers Coz this is for sure, such offers cannot be expected all the time.. Well for those who think cutting on this offer will make RCOM not that attractive, I would like to say that which other telecom company is offering same tariff's be it in home circle or be it STD or be it on Roaming ??? Also, which other company is having same SMS tariff be it home/STD/Roaming circles ?? I dont think many exist out there. So even without these offers, RCOM is providing one of the best tariff in India. As for the network of RGSM, I am concerned as a user of RGSM, though I am not very worried on the same. Mainly due to the fact that RGSM is first of all not my primary number Secondly, looking at the experience I had with RCDMA since the day it was launched & now comparing it with its present situation, RCDMA has done pretty good. I dont think of any reason why RCOM would not like to make RGSM meet the same standards, considering the fact that maximum new additions of RCOM are & would continue to come from GSM and not CDMA. I have for sure decided to give a hold to RGSM for some more time before taking any decision to terminate the same. I would like to mention that all those users of RGSM who have suffered since last few months or so, should also consider holding onto it for some more time, upto 3 months at max. We have faced the bad side of RGSM, dont want to loose on the coming good side P.S: Although they can leave the network now on & get back to it once it improves, but remember, all the SIMPLY Reliance Plans are now being offered a 1-year validity instead of LIFETIME who many of us might be on as of now..
  10. well after posting in the same topic, I called up MTNL CC at 1500. She told me to write a complaint through Email to helpdesk.delhi@bol.net.in mentioning about the speed upgrade not received thingy would do the same this monday morning, lets see when I actually get the speed upgrade..
  11. ppl, isn't this topic for discussion on MTNL ? Coz I put my query in here.. anyways, if this is for discussing MTNL, then I would like to say.. Crap man, I have still not received the speed upgrade in my MTNL broadband, I wonder when I would get the same ...
  12. totally agree.. the network of RGSM is in dire need of a lot of work.. However, after having a talk with one of the Network official from whom I received a call from Delhi only.. the lady told me that they are really working on rectifying this issue.. Although she did not confirmed it fully, but she was of the opinion that the netwrk would stabilise by a maximum of 3-4 months.. be it the network signal issue, connectivity issues etc. She clearly said that the problem is of demand- supply with RGSM. That is, the number of customers joining the network is more that the number of switches, POI's being added everyday etc. By the time reverse becomes true, some problem or the other would continue to happen.. I must say though, I was really impressed with the way she explained me the whole problem calmly.. therefore, based on that conversation with her, I have decided to put my decision to disconnect my RGSM on hold for a period of 3 months or so. If the network does not improve by then, I would for sure disconnect my number..
  13. I also happen to take one of my RCDMA phones to vaishno devi in December 2009.. first of all, let me remind in case some didn't know by chance that in J&K only postpaid numbers are allowed to roam from outside the state. So, prepaid users can't use their mobiles there.. Secondly, the RCDMA number I took along did work in Katra though it did not work even a single time on the way to bhawan.. Also, in katra, they only have one tower, which I enquired upon. surprisingly, that single tower is so ill-maintained that in case their is a power failure, the tower has not been provided with a backup facility which I can't understan for what stupid reason.. So, that means if u happen to take ur RCDMA phone to vaishno devi, first of all it would work only in Katra & secondly, if there is a power failure, which is a norm everyday there in Katra, ur RCDMA phone would be switched off for any signal.. so, dont count on RCDMA just when going to Vaishno Devi. another thing, FYI, confirmed it with Reliance officials through different modes, that is customer care, serv. assurance cell etc., they do not, I repeat DO NOT have any plans to expand the CDMA network in the state of J&K for now..
  14. hey ppl.. our worst nightmare is turning out to be true I guess Just got it checked with a reliance CC, FTT recharges are being withdrawn slowly but surely.. In delhi, I was informed that all the FTT's be it Rs.75 or anything have been withdrawn now.. Confirmed this thing also as I recharged with a Rs.75 recharge yesterday, I just got Rs.66 in the same.. I hope this is not the beginning of the end of good offers & schemes Anybody else out there, confirm this news from their circle.. btw, I am using RGSM..
  15. I just hope I would be able to make & receive calls in general atleast.. Not just to & from reliance but others also. Coz I remember, thay had such an offer at the time of launching of RCDMA services, a couple of years back as well. Gosh.. it was hell of a ride making calls at that time Lets hope this time around , the network of Reliance does not crash totally.. though I seriously doubt that
