    Default Vodafone 3G

    hi,

    Does anyone have any idea of how the Vodafone 3G service (recently launched) is ?(USB data card service)
    They are giving discount within my company. Rs. 1600 initial and then Rs. 400 per month (unlimited) for the Vodafone 3G USB data card.

    Any reviews about this service ?

    Thanks in advance.

    get the device for 1.6k bucks with for 1 month, unlock the device and use with any 3G service provider. The device(K3565, actually its Huawei E160) is superior to idea netsetter(E1550) as it offers speed upto 7.2 mbps.

    I would recommend BSNL/MTNL

    Well, anyone using Vodafone 3G?? Vodafone is offering 3G as trial.

    Only in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Surat, Gandhidham, Coimbatore, Nagpur, Lucknow & Kanpur

    Send ACT 3G to 144(Prepaid) / 111(Postpaid) and enjoy 3G speed on 2G plans. So as for know 2GB for 98/- 3G is best plan between all the providers.

    These devices are not to be sold in india, they are imported from europe/us and sold as dealer warranty. whereas vodafone gives 2 yr. replacement warranty.

    Yea..unlocked devices will loose the warranty. But they hardly have any problems. I'm using a Huawei modem which is intended for Orange.

    1. I often get 4-5+ Mbps on my Airtel 3g, not always though.

    2. Airtel Flexishield plans pwns all other 3g plans in India, barring BSNL/MTNL Ultd plans, and definitely gives them too really tough competition for most mobile users!

    Nope, American beggers aren't above Upper Middle Class Indians. UMC in India is like 40lacs-1cr annual family income,







    american beggars are like 20-30k USD a year, as much as lower middle class indians

    means its not 3G what they are giving for 599? So what will be the costs for 3G? I want to purchase the Vodafone USB guys, and willing to go for the 599 plan, is it worth it?

    you will be best to go for the prepaid scheme and purchase the usb dongle and one month subscription for 1600 + 199 = 1799 and after one month unlock it and use any service provider that provides the most VFP scheme.
    Note:go for Huawei usb dongle, as they are easier to unlock compared to ZTE. They sell ZTE and Huawei at the same rates and it can be identified by the model no with H and Z initials

    Exactly what I said. A family of 4-5 who is poverty stricken in the US has a combined family income of 20-30k USD approx, average, some states higher, some lower, but as an average.

    2. I come home, plug in the device and there is no 3G speed. I call up support and they tell me 3G is to be explicitly activated.

    3. One day wasted. I try again, and still no 3G speeds. I call up support and they tell me, and here's the shocker, 3G is available only in western suburbs, not central suburbs. I give the guy a piece of my mind and he asks someone and tells me 3G is launching all over Mumbai in a month.

    4. Meanwhile, the USB stick starts giving problems. It never connects and gives me some RAS 768 (738,maybe, don't remember) error. Called up support and first few times they tell me to uninstall software from laptop, reboot, and install again (remember those Windows 98 days when this was common place? Never thought would get to experience it again). Then they tell me it is a hardware problem.

    5. Month's time gone, and now I get a bill from Vodafone for Rs.199+ taxes for my SIM card. This can only mean one thing - they frigging put me on a postpaid plan. Also, a warning for those who are planning a postpaid connection, there is an additional hidden charge of 200+ every month. Also, bill mentioned the plan as a GPRS data plan.

    So now I have to put everything aside and visit the Vodafone store to sort things out with these @$$#0!e$. I have to quiz them about the bill, get the postpaid canceled, get the hardware replaced, and switch to a 3G activated. Man, they are going to get a huge piece of my mind if they give me any of that 'Happy to help, but sorry, not in this case' crap.
