    Guys recently i shifted to airtel postpaid from prepaid and now i think it was realy a wise decision and i should have done it earlier.

    I was using airtel FRIENDZ before and my monthly usage was as follows:
    1. Outgoing calls - 3000 min (approx.)
    2. SMS - 350 to 400

    And so my monthly bill used to go to about 600 or more but never less. Then i came to know about this cool Postpaid plan called as "599-Privilage plan" . Check out its tarrif rates :

    1. Outgoing :
    a) to any one Airtel no. - 10 paisa per min.
    b) all other Airtel nos. - 30 paise per min.
    c)To all other local mobiles - 50 paise per min.
    d)TO LL - 80 paise per min.
    e)STD calling (MM/LL/WLL) - 1.25 Rs. per min.

    2. SMS rates - 50 paise per SMS

    PLUS PLUS :

    All the below FREE for First two months:
    1. Caller tunes
    2. 200 SMS (100 Each month)
    3. GPRS
    4. Intemised billing (for ever)

    They are also going to introduce SMS pack in this soon..

    Also you know i was not needed to pay any security deposit or activation charges for this !!! Just i filled a form and i got the SIM activated in 2 hours

    Its'n this COOL... this offer is in Pune i don know about other places. Is similar offer available else where. Pls inform me. THX

    @supernova.....
    take a airtel kolkata lifetime prepaid....e-charge with Rs.300 and enjoy lowest call rate for 6 months, and you also get GPRS on kolkata sim.., don't know about outside WB
    A2A=30p/m
    A2 other mobiles in WB@60p/m
    A2 any other STD and landline@Re.1/m
    can't remember SMS rates....

    and if you don't want airtel, then go for Reliance SMART, but remember signal strengh is not good and most worst is NO GPRS SERVICE.
    charges:
    smart to smart@19p/m
    smart to other mobile in WB@59p/m
    smart to any other STD and landline@Re.1/m
    national SMS@25p
    jst take a lifetime SMART card , and charge with Rs.250 voucher, and you get lowest plan for lifetime, no monthly rental.... BUT NO GPRS...
    now decide, but its only for WB.... don't know about other circles...

    no you get full talktime of Rs. 599 on this rental...
    Its really awesome from all the plans i have come till now !!!

    @neeraj

    Idea already provides that plan buddy in MH.. but if your calling is about 4000 min per month then that plan wont fetch you good value for money since its calling rates are high...

    In MH you get Airtel FRIENDZ in which you wont be getting full talktime :-(
    1. 5 Airtel nos. @ 10 paise/min (including you)
    2. SMS rates :
    a) 10 paise to all airtel mobiles
    b) 25 paise to other local GSM
    3. LL/WLL calling : 2.49 (Too expensive)
    4. STD calling : 3.65 (anywhere M2M/LL/WLL)

    But this plan is too quite good if you call mostly in one circle.

    P.S : All the Airtel nos. should be FRIENDZ.

    no there are no talktime in Rs.300 e-charge for 6 months, it just lower your call charges for 6 months,
    Hutch also started like airtel, but you have to e-charge with Rs.302 for get lower call charge.... charges are same as airtel..
    i guess hutch has no unlimited GPRS, and Airtel unlimited GPRS is Rs.249/month only in kolkata circle.., WB circle has no GPRS in prepaid....
