    which one dya think is better n y ?

    i for one think hutch is better cuz of service provided and cost also.

    in my basement, same phone, gets a decent hutch signal but no airtel signal...while standing in the exact same place.

    but airtel is better for their customer service...da hutch people treat u as dumbasses who cant even spell phone. like if i hav any prob, their normal reply will be 'switch off, switch on and it will worl' or 'i cant tell about your phone model, so pls visit a hutch outler'

    I used both
    As stated above hutch offers many value added service , Airtel to do that but it`s emerging into this world right now ..

    Hutch(Orange) is an International company , and has it`s reputation there ,moreover i`ve seen that the people who like to show off use as compared to the one who have to use it.

    Airtel has it`s own features , a very good , view " GPRS the slowest way to connect net" this post`s last part by me sr_ultimate you can have a better view about Airtel

    actually in mumbai... airtel edges out orange in all things

    but the airtel dumb-heads charge 600 bucks for gprs!


    orange charges 100 !!

    thats the biggest difference....

    the company doesnt matter for me... the gprs duz...

    i was talkin about EDGE tecnology...not GPRS...its much faster than GPRS and airtel dont hav it yet....and in hutch in delhi, if u got gprs and u got an EDGE-compliant handset, EDGE is free.

    egde is supposed to be make your gprs 3 times faster.

    go here 2 see wat edge is:

    I think Hutch is the Best. As compared to the network and services that the Hutch Offers.
    most of the Airtel users they have Network Problems in almost all Places

    The services offered by Airtel are too less as compared to Hutch like GPRS, Push to Talk, Microsoft Outlook

    So I will give my 98% vote to Hutch

    Nothin is 100% :)

    well ihave been using airtel since they launched in mumbai and they have been pretty ok. earlier had orange and b4 that bpl but they had lot of billing problems.
    airtels customer care is very good and very effective. the best part is that they keep u appraised bout the problems u have told them and the actions being taken, if they have not yet been rectified.
