With the proliferation of social networking sites and to satisfy user’s urge to remain online 24×7, Tata Docomo has announced unlimited GPRS packs. The packs are similar to Aircel’s Pocket Internet that were launched few months ago. A user can opt for a 3-day pack costing Rs. 15 or go for a full month of unlimited freedom for just Rs. 95. However, there’s one important thing to know. These packs won’t work on roaming. In simple words, you’ll be able to access the internet but will be charged 10p/10kb.
Activating the GPRS pack is simple. Go to a retailer to recharge your account with the GPRS voucher and then SMS INTERNET to 52270 to receive the settings. Likewise, you can also set the settings manually. More on that here.
And yes, you can connect the phone to your laptop or desktop PC to surf the internet but with the speeds hovering up to 48Kbps, this doesn’t sound to be a good option.
Hmmm…That 48kbps is approx 5kBps in terms of actual download/usage speed…..So not a very good option…Secondly ppl will throng it nd slow it down more just like in the case of Aircel!!
