Your balance is XXX INR. Your validity expires on December 31, 2037, even though you may not live that long and even though we may not last that long and even though we all haven’t the foggiest idea what the state of mobile telephony and billing will be in the Year 2017, let alone 2037!
∙ Competition among mobile operators is extremely fierce.
It’s quite difficult to tell who has the greatest number of call drops or who’s Help Desk keeps you on hold the longest or who has the lousiest billing problems.
∙ The 3G ads are so good and promising that they make you feel like an absolute idiot for having 2G in the first place.
∙ In India, at least everyone is heading towards Roti, Kapada aur Mobile.
