    hi,

    Does anyone have any idea of how the Vodafone 3G service (recently launched) is ?(USB data card service)
    They are giving discount within my company. Rs. 1600 initial and then Rs. 400 per month (unlimited) for the Vodafone 3G USB data card.

    Any reviews about this service ?

    Thanks in advance.

    get the device for 1.6k bucks with for 1 month, unlock the device and use with any 3G service provider. The device(K3565, actually its Huawei E160) is superior to idea netsetter(E1550) as it offers speed upto 7.2 mbps.

    I would recommend BSNL/MTNL

    Well, anyone using Vodafone 3G?? Vodafone is offering 3G as trial.

    Only in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Surat, Gandhidham, Coimbatore, Nagpur, Lucknow & Kanpur

    Send ACT 3G to 144(Prepaid) / 111(Postpaid) and enjoy 3G speed on 2G plans. So as for know 2GB for 98/- 3G is best plan between all the providers.

    These devices are not to be sold in india, they are imported from europe/us and sold as dealer warranty. whereas vodafone gives 2 yr. replacement warranty.

    But once you unlock, you lose warranty isn't it?

    1. I often get 4-5+ Mbps on my Airtel 3g, not always though.

    2. Airtel Flexishield plans pwns all other 3g plans in India, barring BSNL/MTNL Ultd plans, and definitely gives them too really tough competition for most mobile users!

    Nope, American beggers aren't above Upper Middle Class Indians. UMC in India is like 40lacs-1cr annual family income,







    american beggars are like 20-30k USD a year, as much as lower middle class indians

    means its not 3G what they are giving for 599? So what will be the costs for 3G? I want to purchase the Vodafone USB guys, and willing to go for the 599 plan, is it worth it?

    you will be best to go for the prepaid scheme and purchase the usb dongle and one month subscription for 1600 + 199 = 1799 and after one month unlock it and use any service provider that provides the most VFP scheme.
    Note:go for Huawei usb dongle, as they are easier to unlock compared to ZTE. They sell ZTE and Huawei at the same rates and it can be identified by the model no with H and Z initials

    i suppose you must read this :

    Exactly what I said. A family of 4-5 who is poverty stricken in the US has a combined family income of 20-30k USD approx, average, some states higher, some lower, but as an average.
