The Aditya Birla group-promoted Idea Cellular officially launched its mobile services in Mumbai, though they haven’t started attracting subscribers yet.
Idea Mumbai initially plans to set up 60 exclusive showrooms and a round-the-clock call center. It also plans to enter the data card and the local phone booth segment, popularly known as PCO.
Once, they are set up with the initial infrastructure, they’ll open up their services for Mumbaikars. And can we expect new tariff wars again?

When i see all the media add of Idea Mobile in Mumbai,
“ye mumbai ka nahi hai ye valsad ka hai” etc,Its seems that UPGREADED COPY OF MTNL MUMBAI’S RECENT ADD CAMPAIN OF ‘MUMBAI KA KHAS MOBILE’, EVEN YELLO COLOUR IS USED AS MTNL’S MUMBAI KA KHAS MOBILE(1. http://mumbai.mtnl.net.in/helpdesk/gifs/ads/mumkakhas.jpg )(2. http://mumbai.mtnl.net.in/helpdesk/gifs/ads/khasmob.jpg )
ye ‘IDEA’ COPY KA HAI!!!
here is d 1st offer frm idea
take a my gang card on ur student icard nd u can call unlimited my gang card nos. in mumbai @10 paise.
it means all whom has my gang card u can contact dem at 10 p.
i heard dat rates r also cheap lyk 50 paise local after rechargin sum top up which has no validity
Sanjay Bafna says
as i checked on Ideas website,
if we go the “myGang” card on pripaid then always need to buy a “validity” bocz this offer is not for life time plan,so that means idea take a huge ammount every month in the name of VALIDITY!!(Rs.155 for six month and Rs.255 for one year)
and the local Landline call will charged @Rs.1 and the STD call is 1.50!!
after a six month of connection of myGang IDEA more CUT Your Pocket Rs.45 per month(1.50 per day) for the rental of this myGang plan,pre sis month its Rs.15(.50 per day) and after six month its Rs.45
As per Mumbai market its not a good plan in compair to others.

Its no where mentioned that its only for students .. I had called up CC. Any using the My Gang pack is your group member coz there is no limitations to the no. of members in your group. Speding Rs.255 wid 1 yr validity isnt a big deal. Also Rs. 45 a month wid such gr8 tariff is not a prob 🙂

Trump Hangama plan is better from Idea’s MyGang,
bcoz in Trump Hanagam where the actual call charges is just 10paise to all MTNL to MTNL call(landline/mobile both) so its best deal if ur call is in the group of same n/w like mygang and STD call is also cheapest in mtnls Trump Hanagama at 1.
the more best thing is that with MTNL we can got super dupper Talktime like at 750 we got 900 and at 2200 we got 3500,so if we calculate the effective call rate with talktime then the local call as low as just 8paise(only eight paise)!! in MTNL Trump-Hangama.
Vodafone currently also has a Campus pack which is very similar to MyGang.
They need to come up with something unique to attract Mumbaikars.
Howz the network coverage in Mumbai ???? M planning to get one …..
I am using Idea in Mumbai since its launch date..The network coverage and service quaility are both simply superb!!! Secondly,their various offers for both prepaid and prostpaid customers are too good…
Happy nd Satisfied to be an Idea user..Keep it up Idea!:-)
Hello, Here I want to tell you all about Idea !!! I took postpaid connection when its launch in mumbai they they starts my services within 6 Hrs. ooops but i notice after 24 hrs they stops my outgoing calls i noticed customer care is so pathic and not supportive network is good but not in all over mumbai after a lot of requests they starts my outgoing calls after 58hrs ? but they kept barred my GPRS ??? when request for activate of roaming they CC said its takes 24 Hrs? this is very pathic they peoples are too slow not as fast as mumbai. They takes 24hrs for every request or every service whichever you needs urgently ! this is my experience with IDEA . NOw my friends you have to decides is IDEA works in mumbai or it will for for mumbai by making big adds only ? without fast services ?
