  1. Data Plans For Reliance Mobile CDMA Explained

    AFAIK, you will get 144 kbps speeds after the FUP is over. Check with CC for more details. MTS recently launched 3GPlus EvDo Rev B all over India in circles where they are existent that is, and they have 2 speedbreakers after FUP. RCOM and Tata have only 1 speed breaker as yet, no idea when they will also do the same, maybe they will go further and provide 5 speedbreakers also after FUP. And 230kbps speeds are for EDGE not EvDo, if I am right. Other gurus here may respond on this.
  2. one can also check at the following link for all details: - http://www.mtsindia.in/3GPlus/index.html They are claiming 9.8Mbps speeds on Rev B EvDo. Is the speeds available pan India? Their website seems to say so. Anyone using and getting consistent speeds? Plus after the FUP, there are 2 speedbreakers - if you have taken a 5GB plan, the 1st speedbreaker is from 5 to 7.5 GB at 144 kbps and the 2nd one is beyond 7.5GB at 64 kbps.

  5. Is EVDO Rev.A good enough?

    I too feel VA is right, 3G GSM is much better than EvDo. Although EvDo Rev B is available for Chennai (as per HP's post earlier), I do not have any handset capable to check that, so no comments. One more thing, is that battery life in EvDo is very very poor as compared to 3G GSM. On EvDo, my Photon lasts only max 6 hours, but with 3G GSM on my same Photon, it lasts almost 2.5 to 3 times more. Others here may share their experience on battery life.This has been my own experience during the last one year. Of course, 3G GSM network availability is a problem at many places, but where its available, it has been very good so far. Given a choice, I will junk EvDo, I use it very rarely because of poor battery life. Most of the time, I use WiFi only when in office or at home.
  6. I dont think there is any mechanism to check if an individual has nine or more connections even with one single operator leave alone multiple operators. If that rule exists, I will be the first person to face service outage across so many of my RCOM connections. AFAIK, I have almost 22 connections in my name across CDMA, FWP, GSM, data cards etc. All are in my own name. They are across my family members, my office staff and for my own use as well. There is no way to deactivate the excess connections AFAIK. Most of the connections are prepaid and cannot be terminated. Many of these are not recharged as well for more than 2 years almost. The WWs will not accept any termination request for prepaids at all. I would be more than happy if RCOM can deactivate the excess connections. Any one here can suggest how to deactivate prepaids?
  7. Broadband options in Chennai

    @deepak, I have always paid all my mobile, telephones, BB, insurance premiums, taxes dues etc etc through my credit cards. I always make it a point to check my account online if it is debited properly or not. And simultaneously, I even check the respective service providers account to see if its credited properly. This way, you are at peace. Its not that there have been no problems at all. Immediately if there wasa ny discrepancy, I take up the matter by email to the respective credit card and to the service provider also. This way, it gets rectified on time. Even now, I have had some problems with my SC credit card - they have not apportioned my payment to the respective account. I fought with them last month and again this month, they wrongly charged me interest. I have once again fought with them to get it reversed. Many people take it that online banking is very easy and a one click process. They forget that they have to take steps to check the veracity. And then the problems multiply manifold. Finally I would like to reiterate that for Chennai, AirHell is best at the moment with very good speeds, pings, service and reasonably good plans - it is a bit costly at the lowest level compared to BSNL, RCOM etc but then it gets compensated by their superb services. I had taken an 6 monthly ARP, which expired in July 13. Unfortunately, it was not renewed, I gave them a termination request and they immediately pacified me and told me that my forthcoming bill dt 5 Sept will have the ARP included. Lets see what happens on 5th Sept. If it gets missed again, I will give one more termination request. Lets see, I will post here what happens.
  8. Broadband options in Chennai

    ^^^ I quit BSNL this Jan'13 and moved to AirHell with full apprehensions. I was forced to eat back all my apprehensions as I am now fully happy with AirHell plans, service, speeds, ping, you name it, everything is good. And the icing on the cake is Rs 1,000 worth free local calls, which means your effective rental goes down by Rs 1,000. Currently I am on a 4Mbps plan as they do not have feasability for 8 or 16Mbps in our area. Once they get the feasability, I will move to 8Mbps. I am getting truly Unltd in my account, with no FUP. And to top it, I get calls from them asking me why my usage is so low, when I have almost used up 3 to 4 times the limit month every month. They also ask me if I am experiencing any problems with BB and whether I am happy with their services. Lolzzzzz. Compare this to RCOM or BSNL - they never ever call us up for any reasons at all. Surely they need to learn from AirHell on how to make and keep customers happy.
  9. Review: Motorola Photon 4G

    ^^^ In my RGSM mobile, on selecting Sim Toolkit, there is a option Roaming under which there are two options - Home and Roam. One of them has (On) beside it. Try selecting the other, then restart the device and check. If this does not work, try with the other option, restart and check again. Maybe you could even try removing the SIM and then reinserting it. I am hopeful your problem will be resolved. You will not get any network selection at all. Only two options are there - Home and Roam. On selecting either of these, one message will pop, "Already on". After this you have to exit from the SIM Toolkit and then either remove the SIM and reinsert and restart or just restart your device. Hopefully if this does not happen, try with the other option and check again.
  10. Review: Motorola Photon 4G

    DK, One small suggestion, hope it works for you. Go to Menu, Apps, SIM Toolkit, there you will get International Roaming or Roaming whatever. Change the settings here, restart your mobile. See if it works. Did your Photon go abroad recently? This happens with many phones, esp Nokias even while roaming in India. I have tried this with my son's Nokia & Voda and also my niece's Nokia & Idea. After restart, it will start working. Try it.
  11. ^^^ Did you uninstall the original Whatsapp or installed Whatsapp+ over that? Asking because the XDA post is more than a year old.
  12. @csmart, the pics/vids took a long time to get loaded as there were too many in my Gallery. I have checked some of them. Hope it does not show in the gallery again. If I forward these pics/vids, will it again show in the Gallery? Thanks +1
  13. ^^^ If you continue on 94 - 1 GB plan, your bill for 2 GB will be more than 448, AFAIK. Nevertheless, RCOM is really out of mind always with respect to their idiotic plans. So, nothing new here...
  14. Medicinal Facts and Alternates

    Good Info, thanks for sharing... One of my Uncles was diagnosed with Bone Cancer some 3 to 4 months back and we asked the oncologist whether SourSop juice can be given to him and its effectiveness. He told that you can start the Soursop after 6 months only and not now. He did not vouch for its efficacy and neither he disagreed with the view that SourSop is good for Cancer. My Uncle was started on chemo therapy. However due to his age and other complications, he passed away last month. So a number of questions arise, like when should the treatment with Sour Sop begin actually, for how long, and whether to avoid chemo totally? None of the websites or FB pages conatin any reliable information on dosage, usage, course period etc etc.
  15. Motorola Electrify getting switched off automatically

    ^^^ Do a factory reset after backing up all data. Had similar problems in my Photon 4G initially. Be careful while doing factory reset, save all your private data. Hope it helps, don't blame if anything goes wrong. Or ask your seller to help you out.
  16. Broadband options in Chennai

    @hari s mahesh, I am currently using Airtel 4mbps plan, speeds are constant and good throughout. Plus I get Rs 1000 talk time for local calls. I was using BSNL for more than 5 years with the same 4mbps speeds but unfortunately for about 6 to 8 months, their speeds were very poor and there was no response at all to my several complaints. When I gave my termination letter, there was no call also from them regarding retention. Such is their attitude to customers. I am very happy currently with Airtel. In between like you, I also asked RM about the various options available. I specifically asked him about YOU as this seemed to be very cost effective, provided the speeds were constant. I called the YOU sales person and he almost conned me into going for a connection. I asked him to provide me some references and he backed out. So, obviously, their services were not good and I opted out and then called Reliance BB sales person. He came and took my application with the entire proofs, my advance cheque etc. For almost one month, there was no response at all. Finally I called up from a different number and the sales person told me that they have some cable problems in my area and are unable to provide the connection. After a week, they returned my application with all the proofs and the unbanked cheque also. Finally I had to opt for Airtel. In case of any complaints, there is instant followup from their service engineers who come with Apple iPhone and check at my place and do any tinkering if necessary. They also call me up atleast 4 to 5 times just to check if I am satisfied with the resolution provided. All these 10-12 years I have been with RCOM, they have never ever exhibited such customer service. Airtel's complaints system is really professional. RCOM has a hell lot to learn from Airtel. And the customer service execs do not mislead us (like RCOM's nincompoops) when we complain. If we say the speeds are poor, they do not ask for which laptop or computer we are using, but they send their service engineers to check and do the needful immediately. They even come at 8PM or 9PM to check on our complaints. This is what has set Airtel apart from RCOM. I always used to beleive Airtel was Airhell, but in the last 3 months, my entire viewpoint has changed. RCOM had only economical services but very, very, very poor customer service. This is where they have lost out. Probably they cannot afford to have such service engineers with the kind of tariffs they were charging all along. Now, they have also started charging as high as the GSM gangsters are doing. Hopefully, RCOM will improve. Coming back to your problem, it would be better for you to wait it out and see if Airtel will provide you services. Till then, you can try out anyone from the available basket.
  17. International Travel - SIM Cards, Data Charges, Etc

    I have used Uniconnect for 18 days while I was in Europe last year. The service was very good, the cost very low. I used it only for incoming calls and for outgoing I used Matrix and when I got the bill, my wallet burst - around 25k. Since Matrix had already taken my credit card authorisation, there was nothing else to be done. Uniconnect was a prepaid one with full incoming free across Europe and UK. Matrix had incoming free only in UK, whereas Europe incoming was chargeable. This year again I used Uniconnect and Clay when I went to Malaysia and Singapore. The same story repeated - Uniconnect this time was postpaid with full incoming free across Malaysia and Singapore, the bill was a super measly Rs 20 only.... Yes, you read it right - only twenty rupees and that too for calling my Clay number once in Singapore. Clay was a super disaster like Matrix - they charged me rental plus access fees for free 30 minute per day calling to India (then how they call it free) and the total bills were for around Rs 10k. I contested the rentals and access fees and they waived the rentals for about 2k and I eventually paid up Rs 8k in all. These are my experiences. For me, Uniconnect was very good with superb services. No call drops anywhere. Only thing they did not provide was GPRS/3G facility which they claimed will cost a bomb and hence they refrained from providing. My sister used Matrix when she travelled to US for 20+ days, again pretty same disaster story - she was charged ard Rs 22k. She did not contest and she paid up, swearing never ever to touch Matrix again. She went this month to Thailand and she bought a local SIM there. Travellers/readers here may just read the above for guidance and information. They are free to take any provider. What may be food for me may be poison for someone else. Matrix and Clay may have been very bad for me, but for others, it may have been very good. Similarly Uniconnect also. BTW, the website address for Uniconnect is Uniconnect.in.
  18. Discounted/Free apps on Market/Play Store

    ^^^ It is still payable, rs 53.96. Not free.... Maybe for Motorola Photon 4G only?
  19. Best Of Internet

  20. In my Photon, this happens regularly whether I am at Home, Office or anywhere else. It happens even with my SE WT19i and also HTC Desire. I think this has something to do with all Androids only. It does not happen across any other make or model of phone if they aren't Androids. Not too sure about BB, Win Mobiles, iPhones.... My iPadmini works flawlessly even when connected to a power outlet.
  21. Non SMS Stuff

    I found this interesting! When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities. God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. . . . . -the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; -those of the canary in 14 days; -those of the barnyard hen in 21 days; -The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; -those of the mallard in 35 days; -The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, number of days in a week!). And for Humans 40 weeks is the average pregnancy period. God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation! God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains. -Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind. -Each orange has an even number of segments. -Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. -Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. -Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. -The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather. -All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers. God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed! The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only God, who made your brain and heart, can successfully guide them to a profitable end. I HOPE YOU FIND THIS AS FASCINATING AS I DID. May God Bless You In Ways You Never Even Dreamed. I didn't think twice about forwarding this one. "Life without God is like an un-sharpened pencil - it has no point.
  22. EVDO Speed Is Too Slow As Like 1X

    My experience with RCDMA over the last 6 to 8 months is that when my usage exceeds 500 MB in a billing cycle, the EVDO speeds automatically comes to a crawling 0.1Mbps. On complaining, the nincompoopish CC says that your EVDO is not active and they take a request and which takes 5 days to activate EVDO. After a week, there is a call from Mumbai saying your EVDO is now active, please switch off and switch on your handset after 10 minutes and you will get good speeds. This will work for the next 2 to 3 days during which, amazed by the good EVDO speeds (actually better than 0.1Mbps), you will have used another 300 to 500 MBs and once again the same rigmarole will start all over again - your EVDO is not active, complaint registered and after a week or so, EVDO gets activated, you use up a bit and again the same scenario starts again. Sickening to say the least. It is a deliberate ploy by RCOM to limit EVDO usage for people on the unltd plan. Hence I downgraded my plan to 1GB this month, saving Rs 506 per month. To hell with RCOM if they do not want the extra income. The CC says that the unltd plan is now available if I want to take it. I am sick of their attitude, so I have not taken the bait. On a serious note, I am seriously thinking of switching to AirHell. Atleast their 3G speeds are good in Chennai. Fothe same amount that I spent with RCOM, I can live peacefully with AirHell 3G with almost the same voice, roaming and SMS tariffs as RCOM and a far superior and responsive CC. maybe I should have MNP'd earlier itself. Still no regrets. Better late than never. Just my $0.02.
