    @devlelvis it is happening here in bangalore also on many of my friends mobiles. but from experience from docomo i can guarantee you that is a short term bug and will be cleared by airtel pretty quick. 1 more chance is that it is done intentionally by airtel for various reasons. anyway be careful coz the usage might end up in charges in ur account.
    @echo9 Bro, it is bug and not an offer. It can come down to 2g speeds anytime.

    Not a new thing, In Delhi from last 3 months i have been getting 3G speeds in 2G plans like 98 recharge for 2GB. Its automatic nobody can do anything to get this speed.

    Just be on 2G plan, recharge with RC98 and select in Network options your network mode as Dual (GSM and UMTS/HSPA). And if the area is covered in 3G network you will start getting 3G speeds.

    Airtel is doing this intentionally so we all get used to 3G speeds are forced to opt for 3G plans after this boost ends. This topic is already being discussed in another post from many months now.

    @echo Just u hve 2 follow simple method to get 3g speed.But it may r may not be work..I told dis 2 my 5 frnds,out of which for 4 of them it worked..
    And it works nly on prepaid..
    First recharge for 98rps gprs plan and after that activate 3g by sending sms 3g to 121..
    Here u hve to activate 3g after recharging 98 rps plan...
    Nw check dat whether u r getting 3g speed..But i think after activating 3g,suddenly u wont get 3g speed..First u hve 2 use 2g speed gprs plan for sometime,for atleast 30 to 50 mb..After nly u will get 3g speed..

    If this method dint worked for u den first activate 3g nd go for 9rps plan where u will get 10mb for 1day..But dnt use full 10mb..after activating 9rps plan,u activate gprs plan on that day itself nd check whether u will get 3g speed r not..
    Enjoy ...:-D

    @Kharishvarma Bro i accept that Airtel is intentionally giving 3g speed on 2g plan..
    And one more thing,i called airtel cc to ask whether i will get 3g speed on 2g plan..For that they told dat i shld use more than 50mb on 2gplan after that nly if my area is under 3g network then i will going 2 get 3g speed..
    But dnt knw it correct r not..But for me same happened..
    First after activating 3g,i used to get 2g speed nly that is 0.3 r 0.4 kbps..So i connect to my pc nd started to use more, so after crossing some usage i got 3g speed..
    I think it may help others...

    dude, airtel deactivates 2G plans when activating 3G. so how come you are saying that its working...???

    secondly, i am in rajasthan, and here airtel is not allowing access to its 2G users unless they activate 3G by sending sms to 121 (tried in alwar, jaipur and ajmer as well )

    I am in Delhi on Airtel Prepaid 2G plan and never activated 3G from its start, then also I am getting 3G speeds and and my handset selects 3G network as I had selected Dual Mode in my HTC Wildfire. So i think no need to activate even 3G plan for this trick. This is just temporary gimmick. This is not just on my number i have other Airtel Prepaid with my mother same thing on her number also.

    but i dont understand why in rajasthan they aint giving 2G users to access 3g network. i have heard that vodafone does so.... but never heard about airtel.
