Aircel Shutout By Vodafone & Airtel

November 26th, 2012

On Thursday, 22nd, November 2012 – Vodafone blocked all short messaging services (SMSs) to the Aircel Network over an issue relating to non-payment of termination charges. Airtel had already blocked Aircel just before Diwali.

This unfortunately leaves Aircel consumers with no SMS access to the two biggest telecom operators in the country. While Airtel issued a ban on SMS to phones on the Aircel network covering the whole country, Vodafone has only blocked Aircel in Tamil Nadu, New Delhi and Karnataka.

This has created a massive gap between the subscribers of the 3 carriers.

All Vodafone & Airtel user can connect with their friends on Aircel and vice versa via Nimbuzz.

All you need to do is Download the latest Nimbuzz client on your device. Allow Nimbuzz to access the Address book contacts, and it becomes really easy for you to stay connected.
