    Update:-

    Used it for two days
    In open places the speed is excellent
    But interiors, it is so so
    Whenever we use 3G inside rooms, the mobile phoe signal is getting weak
    I think the 3G spectrum is eating up the 2G signals

    yes, I too faced the same issue. I called the cc to make a complaint and they told me that they are adding more towers. lol I asked then WTF I am paying for 3g when I lost signals. I am back to 2g, lucky hadn't recharged the 750rs plan, just did with 200rs to get 200mb which I downloaded the same day while walking in a park. :D:D

    its common problem with GSM-3G service as they function on 2100 band. if you keep the device near a open window, you would find marked improvement.
    comparatively EVDO functions better indoors as they work on 800 band. of course, with EVDO, it is not possible to have simultatious voice and data calls which is possible with GSM-3G

    Why you are paying that much

    Take a 98 rs. 2GB unlimited 2G plan and it will work perfect for 3G also


    What is the solution for this?
    What about using both modes together?

    Airtel is giving promotional offer to all its customers till further notice. I also use 98 recharge for 2gb on 2G and i got a sms from Airtel as a promotional offer you can use 3G at 2G speed rates so i changed my network mode to dual and now i am getting 3G speeds at 2G rates.

    But it will not last for long, at last you will need to shift to 3G or stay back to 2G in any case the prevailing charges will apply as per usage.

    It is not a trick or experiment
    It is officially confirmed from Airtel (even Vodafone) that the exising plans will continue for a limited period
    Let it go like that till they re think.
    I am using 3G and my balance automatically get deducted every month 98 rupees only and I am getting 2 GB free
    You recharge the mobile with 98 rupees and see (for delhi customers)

    In south - Airtel 3G trials during which they were giving 3G speeds for GPRS plans has stopped I think. ( Any memebers getting 3 G speeds in GPRS recharge in Bangalore,Hyderaabd,Chennai- correct me if Iam wrong)
    Vodaphone which is under trial in Tamilnadu-has announced that till April 1st or so one can enjoy 3g speeds in GPRS plans.
