  17. hi, this is pavan. I used my fathers idea card with 0 rental plan.4 days ago I bought a new modem and for the sake of testing, I just connected via idea. My surfing possibly is about 90Mb and bill generated is Rs.1900/-.
    This is rediculous man! As per charges of 2ps/Kb this bill is vast. After 2 hours of using net I checked balance, it was same. At very 2nd day, it was Rs.1100.
    At very 3rd day, it was Rs.1600.At very 4th day, it was Rs.1800!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Last 5 Year I am customer of Idea cellular.
    Very bad experience I got from idea.
    I have recharged my cell with Rs.98. And last couple of month I am using GPRS for internet.
    Yesterday without notifying me 3G activated on my mobile and deduction started from balance.
    Regarding this issue I have contacted Idea call center . but last two days they are saying system is down.
    Even call center people is not ready to listen me.
