I am from Calcutta, West Bengal. Yesterday, I bought this Airtel 3G Data card and activated it with the Rs. 950 plan. It got activated today. Now, I use Ubuntu Linux and that's why the technician couldn't set up the connection. There was no problem, linux simply detected the modem and installed. But the APN was set to airtelgprs.com because airtel3g.com did not work on my modem (if I would set, then it would not get connected). Even then, roaming was required to be enabled to connect to 3g.
Now, I saw that my OS shows me that choosing incorrect APN may lead to billing problems. My plan is 6GB 3g unlimited, with 2g there forth. When I asked the airtel people today, they told me that the APN is airtel3g.com but it wasn't simply getting connected. By default airtelgprs.com was selected by my linux distribution.
Now I already used 1.4 GB of data on my modem. I am really afraid, since the APN was airtelgprs.com and not airtel3g.com, will there be additional charges for my use? btw I saw that Mobile Office has its APN airtelgprs.com and on my phone, it is really costly (usually it got automatically activated twice after my Rs. 98 1 GB monthly plan ended and finished all my balance).
btw my usb datacard is postpaid. I sent an SMS to 121 with 3guse and the reply came that I already used 1400 MB and this excludes the monthly charges and discounts. So, will there really be any additional bills besides my Rs. 950?
Please help, I'm really really scared.
