    well may be some like SMS, check mail, etc. but the keys are too small for other activities.... May be watch latest news updates.. But the cost is so less that it really dosent matter.... The company is almost giving the handset for free(though every month we have to pay a nomianl amount for it..)..

    the cost is like this....


    initial depsoit :- Rs 3000 i.e 60$
    Monthy Payment : - Rs 600 i.e 12$ This includes 400 minutes of free outgoing call time..

    and all incomming calls are free... And if i exceed the 400 min.. every min costs 40 paise i.e .008$ it is like i can speak for 125 minutees for 1$..

    and internet is free... It is a new network.. And they have networked the entire country (India)..


    But i herd from people that 3G phones had bugs... A rival company also offers the same.. but it is a GSM phone with none of these features...

    Now i am confused... What are the costs in your country...

    I use mine for three key things:

    1) Talking.
    2) Internet and txt messaging in study hall
    3) Listening to the radio/MP3's

    I don't like you very much. Please post a lot less.

    No, I know you were joking. My point still stands.
