Aircel Shutout By Vodafone & Airtel

November 26th, 2012

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.
