I was looking at International USA roaming pack and it costs 849. I don't need it for calls, only for incoming SMS. So If I do not buy the pack, I understand calls will be 140rs/minute, but what about incoming SMS. Is it charged. Second question? What about missed calls. What if I block all calls, and no call can be made. Will I get charged for missed calls? I called customer care and they said no, missed calls will not be charged. But you know reliance. If I get 100 missed calls in a month, I will have to pay 14000 INR!!! Alternatively, to work around this what if I forward all calls to some local India number with parents before going. This way, if somebody calls, call will be immediately forwarded. Now, will the call even be routed to my phone at all, or it will be done at network end? This way it does not matter where I am. Calls will be forwarded, and if unanswered, there is going to be no charge at all. Any ideas or experience?
