    Exclamation Idea Internet User with NetSetter Unlimited 599 Plan

    Dear Friends..

    Am a Idea Internet User with NetSetter Unlimited 599 Plan and experiencing very slow connection and connectivity issues.

    And never got any desired help from the customer care. I have planned to take a different connection from a different vendor this time.

    Please let me know the best between MTS & Reliance interms of speed. Am planning to go for unlimited or monthly 500 MB package to start with.

    And anybody know whether we can use the same datacard of Idea with someother brand and would that work.

    I enquired about this with MTS and they said it wont support - I guess they would say this to make me buy their USB data card.

    But is there any option of using the same with a different vendor (any vendor) with my existing idea USB data card.

    Your valuable inputs will be of great help to me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello vinurvk

    Idea only give normal speed u cant except the speed of brodband in idea.Because its a 2G network .You can go for the cdma players like MTS,Reliance,Tata and Bsnl evdo for better speed than idea.Evdo technolgy is far better and give much speed that normal 2G connections.EVDO is more advanced technolgy it will give up to 3.1mbps .I think reliace is better.in this catogery

    thanks for the quick information techgod

    heard that reliance is doing very good.. am planning to switch to reliance.
    but since reliance is CDMA, I will not be able to use the same data card with reliance.

    However, if somebody knows whether i can use any other network with my existing data card - pls let me know..

    Hey vinurvk you can try BSNL/MTNL 3G if available at your place. If your existing data card is Idea 3G card then it can be unlocked to be used with BSNL/MTNL.
    I am using MTNL 3G and its giving me 370kbps speed(this is the max speed supported by my phone).

    Thanks guys.. I was successfully able to unlock my NetSetter Idea Data Card with help of some third party software (googled it).

    After trying Airtel, Vodafone & Uninor.. Am currently stuck with Uninor internet connection.

    This is being used by my friend who requires very limited net access for just checking emails on a regular basis. Hence, we started using Uninor sim card in the data card which gives 1GB of download data for Rs.24. Hence, its just Rs.96 per month which is very much cost effective for us.

    Thanks for all the replied with their suggestions. Simply this forum is one shot available forum for all internet related queries/problems.

    Default MTS complete waste

    MTS is worst service provider, speed mostly 25-50 KBps, customer care - care for recharge only & unable to sort out any problem. My suggestion - don't buy their service & can check their reviews in MTS MBLAZE section.

    Default 599 is for 7.5 gb only

    My data limit exceeds 7.5 gb within a month. I contacted cust (dont) care, to change my plan, i need to download bigger files, I also ready to pay the charges.
    By the cust (dont) care person replied I have wait for until 75 days to complete.

    So I am going switch back Reliance prepaid.

    You should be kidding me..
    I posted this issue in late 2010 and you are asking my alternate contact number to fix this. Thanks though.

    I have switched back to Airtel 3G and happily living for my office related works and sticked with BSNL BroadBand unlimited for my personal activities. But with the amount of support that I received for Idea - I will never ever go back to idea products any time.
