i purchased it from aircel kerala.fantastic phone. but data plan is waste . probably for iphone 3GS data plan aircel, maximum speed is throttled to 2G speed (256 kbps). i am getting file down load speed only 20kb/s with 3g signal. where as with bsnl 3g sim gave file download speed upto 260 kb/s. i am planning to surreder the aircel sim to avoid monthly rent ( in kerala it is 140/month minimum)
it is better to go for 2g plan as it gives 1000min free call every month . data is anyway waste in both plan
best thing in this offer is you can use any sim in iphone and aircel postpaid sim can be used in any other handset (for both calls and data)

Frank, 02 Aug 2012I am confused in buying a Phone please let me no should i Buy Apple or Samsung Android Phone If you buy an Android Phone in more or less the same price point, you would be looking at the Samsung Galaxy Ace.
Let's try to compare them. Screen size and resolution is about the same for Galaxy Ace and iPhone 3Gs.
Both are 3G phones so speed of internet is about the same.
CPU speed is 800Ghz for Galaxy Ace versus 600Ghz for iPhone 3Gs. So on paper Galaxy Ace edges out the iPhone (but when you are running the phone you hardly see the difference, sometimes the Android will even lag more).
Galaxy Ace has better camera with flash at that. So Galaxy Ace wins this one hands down.
Over-all build quality, the iPhone 3Gs looks and feels sturdier. The Samsung Galaxy Ace feels plasticky. The only time the build quality will start to feel good for Android Phones are the High end phones.
I have own a lot of Android Phones from Samsung Galaxy S (high end at the time i bought it), LG Optimus One, HTC Sensation, etc. Adroid is good in that you can actually do a lot more things with android, has a lot more apps. IOS of apple is also good but the free apps are not as many (its also many, just not that many).
IOS usually has more newer apps. Apps that are multi-platform usually arrive in the IOS first then in the Android apps after a few months.
Now, for my advice. If this is definitely your price range then go for the iPhone 3Gs. If you can spend a bit more, then go for the Android phones in the higher price range Samsung Galaxy S, HTC Sensation XL, etc.
If you have no limit in your budget.... that's another story.
Hope this helps.
And i Aware like 1 year 3g Browsing free.....

srini, 02 Aug 2012can we change the sim after 6 month?????/ or we want to use the same sim ???Yes you can
Just bought the iPhone 3Gs with IOS 5.1.1 for my second line. My primary phone is still my Samsung Galaxy S (Android), but the iPhone 3Gs was too good to pass given it's price range especially since I will be using it for my secondary line. Prior to this, my secondary line was an LG Optimus One (Android Phone). To be honest, I am quite impressed with the iPhone 3Gs given its old hardware. Even with the slow clock speed of the CPU, the phone is very responsive. Of course the 3G (HSDPA) is not match with my Samsung Galaxy S but given that the coverage for my secondary line is almost always just HSPDA I don't feel the difference.
The IOS 5 really made the phone that much appealing to me. It has almost all the features loaded in iPhone 4S (minus Siri and FaceTime support). Otherwise, it is exactly the same, albeit a bit slower compared to the iPhone 4S.
Android will still be tops for me given the flexibility that I can do with the Android (all the apps available). But the iPhone 3Gs is a better choice if you are contemplating on buying a cheaper Android phone (LG, Alcatel, etc.) If you buy and Adroid phone within the same price range, you will more likely get a phone with almost the same clock speed, poor build quality and poor performace. So it is better to opt for the iPhone 3Gs.
the phone is having 8gb or 16 gb of internal memory ?
if 8 gb would it be enough for use ?????
Is it still to worth to buy this Mobile, Please tell me pros and cons of this mobile.
My range is up to 15K, if its not the best option then kindly let me know the other phone.
Waiting for all of your's valuable suggestion, Kindly help me to choose the best option among all, Please reply ASAP..
nirav, 31 Jul 2012if we pay for 9999 plus 3000 extara for aircel sim an dont pay the rental charges then wat wil... morethose 3000 are the rental charges for 6 months in 2G circles.. You can do number portability or could change that postpaid sim to prepaid one after 6 months if not then you would start getting 499 monthly bill minimum
nirav, 31 Jul 2012if we pay for 9999 plus 3000 extara for aircel sim an dont pay the rental charges then wat wil... moreI just have purchased this phone with total as Rs. 12999. After six months, nothing will be required to be paid. And the best news is that the phone is already unlocked, that means, right after purchasing the phone, we can use any operator'sim. 5 out of 5 for his buy.
its competent to upgrade IOS 3 to IOS 5 rite....So all the application which is available in IOS 5 not in IOS 3,eg SIRI,FACE TIME etc will be compatable to use in the same 3GS Device.
