    Default Virgin makes SMS free beyond 3rd SMS daily (max.100 local & 100 national SMS/day)

    Virgin mobile has modified their basic SMS rates as follows without the need for any add-on packs,
    Local SMS per day :First 3 - Re.1/SMS (50p/SMS for TN, Chennai, Kar.)
    Next 100 Free
    from 104th - Rs. 1/SMS

    National SMS per day : First 3 - Rs. 1.50/SMS
    Next 100 Free
    from 104th - Rs. 1.50/SMS

    This could be really useful for the medium SMS-ers

    This is in addition to their basic call charges per day of
    Local Call : First 3 Min - Re. 1
    from 4th Min - 50p

    STD: First 3 Min - Rs.1.50
    next 30 Min - 50p
    from 34th min - Rs.1.50

    And their offer of incoming credit of 1p for every 6 min subject to max. Rs.3 per call

    Doesnt that amount to 3/- per day for 100 free local sms. 3000 sms free for 90/- per month, right?

    Not exactly.
    If used daily and for full it would be Rs.225 (90+135) per month for 3000 local and 3000 national SMS per month.
    But, there are many who do not use SMS on some of the days or may be using only local or only national SMS on certain days.
    So for them, the Rs.3/Rs.4.50 per day charge would not apply for those days when they are not sending any SMS.

    Now if i get this straight

    50p for all calls

    Free sms to any network anywhere in the country

    Even if it costs some 200 rupees a month in form of packs it hardly matters,Doesn't it.

    Well i would have brought one if it wasn't for me living in jammu or on of the least accessible parts of the country

    but even for high volume users so many sms are almost useless ... in most cases these sms will go unutilized ... how can some one send 100 sms daily .. !!

    SMS is a life saver for the speach/hearing impaired. One of my friend has a Reliance connection (DAPO) with free sms because he does all his communication through sms only. before 2003 he had tough time even getting his basic needs like grocery, veggies, milk etc. now all his needs are taken care of by sms.

    That sounds like a pretty good deal, I wouldn't mind having that sort of deal in the US. As for mandar, how can you not send SMS's?!?! haha :]

    I love texting especially with the cheap texting options that Virgin Mobile provides and I absolutely love them for offering such cheap options.

    they are trying to make same plans as Tata Docomo, i think they should make some UL GPRS plan if they really wanna compete with other providers.
