I recently activated GPRS on my SonyEricsson Z710i handset. In some area I get full EDGE coverage. In my residential area there is no EDGE coverage......
It's weird problem may be. I gues they dont have good freqncy on all tower's. When i walk about 500 meters away from my building, I again see "E"
logo on my handset. I locked complained 3 days ago. But still they havent solved it.
They given 72 hours time 2 days ago. If EDGE is not up by Monday, I'll throw there SIM and will go for Vodafone or other ISP.
It may take some more time than 72 hours as told you by some officials. But its worth waiting for. I am using Airtel MO - MobileOffice (unlimited Rs.15/day) in my Edge phone (Motorola A1200 Ming, Edge enabled by myself) since many months and used all over Mumbai and even in out of mumbai. and some parts of Karnataka. Thier MO works outstanding in every part of country. May be in some outstation areas the Edge does not enable and only basic GPRS is available. I give
10/10 to Airtel.
Now vodaphone. I have Hutch prepaid too in Mumbai city the service is good, but its pathetic when I go outstation. They do not exist outstation and in many states. Thier tieup with other providers is only for voice call roaming and do not offer GPRS with other providers.
I hope this info is enough for you to stay with Airtel. And yes, you did not mentioned your Area. Before posting something negative about any compnay, please mention your Area so people can think over it. Its not AIRTEL's fault if you stay somewhere in remote corner or outside the Major city coverage.
Also visit this link (my post in another gr8 forum) and analyze why you get bad coverage of Edge in your area >> http://www.rimweb.in/forums/index.php?showtopic=10509
This is also good link for current available AIRTEL Data packages >> http://www.motorolafans.com/forums/showpos...41&postcount=27
