  • from June 2009, till date (i.e. Dec 20, 2009) the prices for MTNL 3G have dropped like anything, and I didn't minded paying Rs. 149 for testing a 3G connectivity.

    In 3-4 days of constant use, i found out that at more than 50% places there was no 3G Network at all, and the GPRS connectivity was still a big issue, so overall I won't recommend anyone to buy MTNL 3G, as you might be using 1G or 2G, but paying for 3G.

    However whenever I used 3G (which really works) but still it was not better than a Wi-Fi I normally use on Phone of 256 Kbps.

    I didn't find chance to check the VIDEO CALL facility as it is really hard to find someone known who migt be using MTNL 3G, therefore NO COMMENTS on that.

      • From the Jodi offer, I don't understand the following :

        i. What kind of a phone is compatible with this 3g. I have NOKIA 3510 with camera and all other modern features. Do I have to buy a new hand set.

        ii. What is the total cost of connection to be paid first time?
