Well, last month was a Bomb in terms of personal mobile bill 🙂 I usually used to call from my home land line and Dad used to pay the bill 😛 so in a way it was not factored.
Bill Duration: 26 Apr 07 to 25 May 07
Bill Amount: Rs 1450 (wow thats close to $35!) (90% was personal)
I am on Airtel India Roam Plan – as I expected to roam around and call more to my folks and friends in Bombay initially. Well the percentage distribution was like that!! Also I didn’t have GPRS – yet to buy a good phone and hence so savings there 😛
|Local Outgoing||26% (200mins!)|
All this analysis thanks to online airtel bill. Though I don’t like the UI much but I like the facility atleast!
In short – I had spoken 9hrs 53mins and 1 sec 🙂 i.e 600 mins of outgoing not caring about roaming and incoming/outgoing and local or STD. Now by US standard in terms of bucket plans its around $45 for 600 mins (in + out) (nights and weekends free!) – so India is cheaper but not cheap.
I am sure I would have spoken in total 1200 mins last month! – talk about me a vociferous social animal 😉 BTW that largest amount of minutes for me was 2 years back in the US – 3021 mins in March 05! and I paid $55 for that!
