I got a rude shock the last time i called up a friend at Siliguri on her mobile phone. She had switched off her phone for some reason, but I found the message coming from the opertater really offending…..It went something like…”The [operator name] customer you have dialled has switched off ****his**** phone”. Probably the same message is not repeated all over India, but perhaps phone operators ought to be more careful while phrasing them so as not to offend the sensibilities of people.
While still on phone operators…its about time someone found a solution for sms spam generating out of the operators’ stable itself. Airtel kills me with nearly 5-8 spammy messages all throughout the day.
Last heard…a friend in sheer desperation was ready to spam them back in any posisble way.
