    Using IDEA 3G is not worth as they don't offer 3G Roaming on homerates on prepaid. I don't know why these companies are doing this as it restricts small business people who travels frequently from using IDEA. On the otherside Reliance is offering 3G roaming with homeplan rates. If you want to use IDEA 3G in your home city only then it's okay however if you are a frequent traveller, stay away from Idea and Choose Reliance/Aircel/BSNL

    Hi. Using Idea 3g services for the past 2 months and i am very happy with the speeds(average speed of 500 to 600 kbps) i am receiving in my circle. I am in ongole,Andhra Pradesh. and especially for download purposes i use the time based plans,which works out cheaper compared to the volume based plans

    Default IDEA 3G Netsetter slowest speed nd worst CUSTOMER CARE service

    Mera naam anil pal. Mane idea ka 3g netsetter 3 mahine pehle liya tha. Laking pichle mahine se uski speed bahot hi kum ho gayi hai. Google bhi khoolne me 1 min leta hai and aur search ko to 5 min lag jaate hain. Din me speed 40kbps aur raat me 20-25kbps ke kareeb hoti hai. Aur kabhi kabhi to 10kbps bhi muskil se hoti hai. Maine 6gb ka recharge karaya tha lekin 0.5 gb bhi use nahin kar paya hun aur 1 month ki validity bhi khatam hone aa gayi. Is speed se to mera 1 gb bhi khatam hona muskil hai. Aur ye dikkat mere akele ke saath nahin hamare area me jitnon ne bhi netsetter liya woh sab logon ke saath hai.

    Idea ka customer care to mere khyal se sabse wahiyat service hai. Normal phone se to kabhi connect hi nahin hota hai. Retailer ke paas demo ke liye callcenter ka direct line no hota hai. Maine jab usse baat ki to meri complaint note hi nahin ki. Mujhe kaha gaya ki test karne par meri speed 2000 kbps payi gayi hai. Par mujhe aur mere aas pas ke logon ko kabhi 2000 kbps to kya 200 kbps bhi nahin MILI. Mere ye baar baar kehne ke bavjood unhone kaha ki unki taraf se sab sahi hai isliye woh meri complaint note nahin karege aur complaint no bhi nahin denge.#
    Complaint no na dena ek bahot hi galat cheez hai. Aur mere baar baar mangne par unhone humara demo no se bhi phone uthana band kar diya hai. Humare area se sabhi logon ki yahi kahani hai. Main gujarat me dahod city me rehta hoon.

    Jab customer care problem sunega hi nahin aur complaint no hi nahin dega to hum samasya ka samadhan kaise kar payenge.

    Ye company grahkon ko advertising aur marketing se uljha kar unke paise, samay aur energy barbaad karne ka ghatiya kaam karti hai.#

    Mai chahta hoon ki jo log netsetter lene se pehle mera review padh rahe hai wo kam se kam idea ka netsetter lene se pehle soche. Ek baar netsetter dene ka baad na to SAELSMAN phone uthayega aur na hi IDEA ka Customer Care.

    Actually idea ka netsetter lena mere liye aur mere saare doston
    ke liye to bahot hi
    ghatiya IDEA: tha !!!!

    idea customer care is tarah se behave karega to ab kya abhishek bacchan se jaakar complaint karein kya!!!

    say no to these corrupted services of idea!!!

    Tum aur tuhara sab dost ne milkar PORTOUT karlo IDEA se. Portout karne ke do phayde hai

    1) Jab tum portout karne ke liye SMS vejoge tabhi or jab jis operator ke sath jurna chahate ho usi se jab IDEA ko Registration chodne ke liye message vejega tab IDEA ne tumhara problem solve karsakta hain.

    2) Yadi Idea ne koi steps nahi liya to aachhe operator (in your local) ke sath jur jao IDEA ko maro ........ Portout karne par tum offer hi offer paoge naya operator ke tarfse. So it's not loss anymore.

    3) Unlock your data card and use it any GSM SIM card & enjoy.....

    If you are belong from Delhi or Mumbai then you should go for MTNL (3G) & from other states go for BSNL (3G). BSNL & MTNL have best cheap plan available with good speed. You can purchase 3G SIM & recharge with 3G data packs. Don't go with any tricks because you may be trap of SPEED CAP.

    You should launch a complain with detail of problem through email on their web site & wait 1 or 2 days, because Customer Care Representatives are very Non-technical.

    I agree with Sumit, I am using Idea prepaid card with 3G and gets charged like anything in roaming. They charge so much data usage charges. I dont understand then whats the use of taking a scheme if we have to pay extra even.

    hi all,one single word that i can think of for idea 3G is--PATHETIC.
    With a very consistent speed of not more than 100-120 kbps and worst customer care support this i found the best word to explain it.Now i am planning to port to airtel,kindly suggest.

    Where from U r? If you are from Delhi or Mumbai go for MTNL, cheap & Good speed. If u r rest of circle go for BSNL. If speed expectation is high (more than 3 mbps+) then go for Tata Docomo, Vodafone or Airtel. SPEED is vary from location to location.

    Idea Speed Is Very Good But Technical Support Is Very Poor...

    If We Complaint Anything Regarding Net Service They Will Ask 3 Days Time To Rectify The Problem It Reputes Bad Image Of That Company N Staffs...

    In Technical Person Says Saturdays N Sundays R Holiday...

    Weekly 5 Days Only They R Working Giving Attendance To That Company Lolz...

    If It Continues Idea Customer Go Out Of This Service...

    Idea is one of the pathetic service i have ever seen. customer care is very very poor.
    They have announced rs 10/- for 30 minutes 3G, but customer care don't have any idea about that.
    They don't even know what is the difference between 3G and GPRS. just a bunch of DUMP A S S's sitting on the other end of phone
    My idea Chennai : 8682880075
    Now i have moved on to BSNL for the 3G service. i know that BSNL customer care is poor, but at-least they provide a decent speed and affordable rates.
    We have to pay 50ps/call to idea customer care ...... but the information they provide wont be useful to us .... LOL (money gone)

    PS: all India roaming is free in BSNL

    Not just Kerala, Maharashtra aswell. They are the no 1 mobile network in Maharashtra too. I have personally never used Idea but once I was having trouble with my Airtel 3g while traveling so I borrowed my sister's Idea 3g connection and it was flying

    In Kerala,Idea 3G has got the best coverage...I am from Kochi and even in very remote places in my district Idea 3 G network is availabe.....BSNL is nowhere near to idea in terms of network coverage.The other 3G service provider Tata Docomo is available only in and around Kochi City and once you leave the City....Signal bar shows nil status...Docomo 3G is not even available in nearby cities like Kottayam,alappuzha etc...pathetic.....

    I think Maharashtra,UP-west & Kerala are the 3 cricles where Idea holds No.1 spot in Customer base..!
