    well with AirTel the phone will be acting as a GPRS modem... speeds are really poor... :(

    yup make sure u buy a phone with EGDE support...

    i tried few months back.. customer care really didnt have clue when asked to help on setting up the system to use internet on PC... lol...

    I want to add my experience here because I used EDGE for 7 months ..
    I specially baught Nokia 6820 (12K then and the cheapest EDGE phone available at tht time) .
    Well in begining it was really good to have running internet around 200+ kbps bcz you can get 284 kbps on EDGE (read somehwere)

    But later on as the customer increased on that mobile company.. speed got slow .. slow and slower .. finally I had give up.

    Anywasy.. for you..
    go for any cheapest EDGE phone .. and dno't expect too much from EDGE .. thugh it can do the job ie. give you internet for most of the things.

    Worst thing for this internet was lag in chatting..
    It always suffred it.. ie. I used to get msgs in reply at once always..
