    Hi anromeda,

    The top - up plan is common for all.

    Rs.59 - cost of the sim. + Rs 120 -prepaid general plan.(table 1.1.3 usage value Rs.20) + Rs55 - recharge voucher (table 1.2 usage value Rs.35)

    So total value now u can use Rs.55 at the rate of Rs.0.01 / 10KB. You can surf around 55MB value! Start surfing!

    I haven't used 3G. Only EV-DO Rev.A data card.:)

    I have purchased BSNL 3G SIM card which charged around 179 (59 - SIM Price + 120 FRC). After activation of SIM card, I recharged with Ra. 222. I am from Maharashtra region.
    But I didn't get any data in my SIM card yet and so unable to browse internet on my mobile. :(

    Please help me to understand the procedure of how to start using 3G on mobile. Please let me know GPRS activation is mandatory???? :confused:

    this is what has come in BSNL website :

    How to access BSNL Live?

    Before you access BSNL Live you need to have correct settings in your mobile. You may get these settings in the following manner. (FAQ's on 'On Demand Video / movies..')

    a) All the settings required to access BSNL Live & avail different services on BSNL Live will be pushed to your handset by BSNL.

    b) You can also ask for the settings by sending <make> space <model> of your handset to 58355 by SMS e.g. <Nokia> space <N79> to 58355. After you send the SMS you will in response get several settings on your handset viz. 'bsnl live', 'bsnl stream', 'bsnl mobility' etc.

    c) You may also call BSNL Customer Care Center to know the settings.
    Once you get all the settings, you will have to save them. Out of theseseveral settings the one pertaining to BSNL Live (will appear as 'bsnl live') should be saved as default. In some handsets the word 'Bookmark' is uesd instead of default. Thereafter whenever you want to access BSNL Live you will have to click on your Web browser in your mobile; the 'BSNL Live' bookmark will be visible to you and clicking on it will lead you to the Welcome page.


    i have SE XPERIA X10 and the sms didnt work for me as they said "format error" every damn time. so i went to the service center, even they couldn't find my phone in their list and gave me some mobile no to sms to and say my 3G doesn't work. i sent sms twice to him and then just called him. he told me to do as follows:

    i had to delete all the APNs first. then make a new one with Name and APN both as "bsnlnet" and make no other changes, i repeat, absolutely no other changes! then save it and switch off the phone and switch it on again and....wala! it works like a charm ;)

    and i purchased the 4200 Rs. unlimited plan for 6 months which works for me pretty well.
    Down Speed ~ 2.8 mb/s
    Up Speed ~ 1 mb/s
