    Default BSNL MICROSIM SPEED CAPPED TO 256 Kbps

    Iam from Coimbatore,Tamilnadu.I got my BSNL 3G microsim postpaid UL999 on june 20 and using in my Huawei E1750 Data card. till yesterday(20-7-2011) the speeds r awesome (4-5mbps). but from yesterday my speed is capped to 256 kbps.
    while enquiring in the customer care they said that "the microsim is
    for using with IPAD only. As I have Violated that ,their system has automatically capped the speed as my IMEI Number belong to a Data Card. But i argued to them i am using it only in IPAD only.but they told me that the speed is capped automatically by system and if i use it with ipad again the speed will be increased after verifying IMEI no.

    Plz guys help me is there any solution or shall i surrender my connection?

    Default yes, they cap it

    Recently I took 1 prepaid micro sim. After i use it in my galaxy s2, i am getting speed capped to 153 kbps.
    In the same mobile if i use normal bsnl 3g sim, i get 2-3 Mbps, in the same area.

    So looks like they detect from which device i access the connection, by the IMEI number, which is hardware burnt.The first 6 digit tell you the device and model you are using.
    If is it not showing as IPAD from APPPLE, then they cap the speed.

    To change IMEI is illegal as you know in INDIA, but it is possible.
    If you have access to any friend's IPAD, and keep a android phone, there is a trick.
