  2. I am residing at Kizhakkepram, North Paravur. I am not getting even 3G in my area. For making calls I have to go out of house to get the net work. Is there any solution?

  3. I tried to forward an SMS to 53734 from 12.45 pm today. could not send message. Is the notification. Nothing happenes against the 4 g upgradation.

  4. My No is 9961254151. I changed the SIM yesterday for upgrading to 4g. Since then I am totally cut off and couldn't make a Call or receive one. I am totally embarrassed as I haven't another mobile number. This is highly objectionable. What should I do to get the SIM activated immediately.
