RCOM is going just opposite to what it was in last year. Hope the benefits are not snatched from old customers atleast. :NOTriste:

Last year there are NO ex-Airtel guys in RCom... :angry: :angry: Wait for a few days for the benefits to be snatched from old customers too...

If they started SMS-BlackOutDays for old customers too, then I will surely remove those 1p SMS packs from my 2 RGSM numbers...

Now their only advantage is RoamingSMS... Wait, I heard BSNL also allows FREE/1p National SMS to be used in roaming (for prepaid only).. Any BSNL users please confirm...

Tata also allows FREE National SMS to be used in roaming.. I am using it (for postpaid) with my BB..

So with BlackOutDays, RCom SMS offers may NOT be as cheap/useful as earlier...

Ya with BSNL this is an usual problem. Also sometimes incoming SMS from other networks repeat for more than 10 times

I mailed to service assurance cell and they say there are no black out days. Customer care also says the same thing. How to reach a conclusion? Or we have to wait till next black out day to find out?

Yes.. We have to fire an SMS on Diwali to find out the answer.. But I think, by that time RCom may change their mind to charge even old customers on those black-out days...

Forgot to add one detail....

I had activated and deactivated SMS packs before 20Th Aug. 2010 also.

Still am I going to suffer??

EDIT : Just spoke to CCE and she told me that Blackout days are applicable for all Reliance users(Old as well as new) even after telling about 20th Aug. 2010 date which is mentioned on their website. She told me that it is applicable for ALL the customers (as showing in their system). SMS charges will get deducted from Main Balance. :NOTriste:

just got a sms from reliance saying that my sms pack shall not be valid on the following days for 2011 (chennai circle)

1. new year

2. sankranthi

3. valentines day

4. diwali

5. independence day.

even though reliance introduced black out days from 20th aug 2010, existing sms pack subscribers were not charged on blackout days. but i guess even existing members shall be charged from 2011 onwards
