Is Vodafone’s Unlimited GPRS Plan Truly Unlimited?

vodafone-unlimited-gprs-at-rs.94 Yesterday, Vodafone announced unlimited GPRS Plan for Kerala circle for just Rs. 95 per month wherein, as per Vodafone, a customer can browse unlimited GPRS for one complete month. Even we were excited about this plan as its from Vodafone and will definitely be genuine and must provide reliable speed too. But later this plan seemed to be duping its customers.


Whatโ€™s the catch?

We came to know that, just like various Internet Service Providers (ISPs) unlimited plan, even this unlimited GPRS plan by Vodafone had a catch and the catch is, along with this plan there is a fair usage policy tied up which says that a customer will be charged for GPRS usage if his usage exceeds 50MB per month.

Is the plan really unlimited?

So its up to the users/customers to decide whether the plan is really unlimited or rather it should be called as a GPRS pack of Rs. 95 per 50 MB but we strictly believe that, Vodafone is simply fooling its customers by calling this 50 MB plan as โ€œUNLIMITEDโ€.

    A flat lie by Vodaphone to the customers…..

    The scheme mentioned here has been revised by Vodafone long back.

    Now it offers 5 GB instead of 50 MB.
    (voucher still says 50 MB although it gives 5 GB actually)

    I have been using Vodafone Live on my mobile and netbook for past 2 months.
    Hence 2 GB of Airtel is too less for that.

    Wait!! Story is not over.

    Out of 5 GB, I used 2.7 GB in the first month.
    I recharged again on the very last day.
    To my surprise I got usage of 2.3 + 5 = 7.3 GB! (Though my friend who recharged “after” last day of validity got only(?) 5 GB.

    This is my third month of using Vodafone live and my balance is a mind boggling 8.1 GB with 23 days to go!

    hi friends ,i just want to know how to connect to laptop through pc suite using vodafone 95 gprs plan…
    what is the access point..`

  7. Mohan Reply

    @sagar
    To connect 95 gprs to PC,
    In PC suite choose : manually
    APN / access point : portalnmms
    No username, password or command is needed if asked. Leave them blank.

    Done here.

    Now open internet explorer
    Tools
    Internet options
    Connections
    Here set your phone modem as default.
    Click settings
    Use proxy server …
    Proxy : 10.10.1.100
    Port : 9401

    Enjoy!

    Input the proxy and port no in other browsers if you use.

    To avoid problems in connection install IE8 or update to SP3 in XP.
    Vista and seven users wont have any problems.

    It is 2GB now and not 5GB.
