    Update:-

    Used it for two days
    In open places the speed is excellent
    But interiors, it is so so
    Whenever we use 3G inside rooms, the mobile phoe signal is getting weak
    I think the 3G spectrum is eating up the 2G signals

    yes, I too faced the same issue. I called the cc to make a complaint and they told me that they are adding more towers. lol I asked then WTF I am paying for 3g when I lost signals. I am back to 2g, lucky hadn't recharged the 750rs plan, just did with 200rs to get 200mb which I downloaded the same day while walking in a park.

    its common problem with GSM-3G service as they function on 2100 band. if you keep the device near a open window, you would find marked improvement.
    comparatively EVDO functions better indoors as they work on 800 band. of course, with EVDO, it is not possible to have simultatious voice and data calls which is possible with GSM-3G

    Why you are paying that much

    Take a 98 rs. 2GB unlimited 2G plan and it will work perfect for 3G also

    What is the solution for this?
    What about using both modes together?
