Default Blackberry experience (coverage) in India

Please Login to Remove!

I would like to share my experience why roaming on AirTel India's network with T-Mobile service. I had BB8700 and 7290 (before came back) and I had great coverage. I even went to far flung areas in North and south and I still had good coverage. BB8700 gave me good EDGE coverage in major cities otherwise GPRS was still good in rural areas.
I went there prepared:
>Took last good back up in case I lose the device.
>Took DM in case I need to install or restore the old file on new device.
>charger, and aux battery charger because electricity may not be available everywhere.
>I asked T-Mo to give me BB only plan (no voice plan) while roaming in India and glad that I did it 4 days before I left. They wiped out my BIS because some nutt signed me up for T-Mobile Internet and not BB plan. if I were in India I would not have been able to set these back up. be careful on this. don't make last min changes.
>T-Mo charges 15 $ per MB of data but I did not jump over that limit because email helped a lot.
Overall I was happy with Airtel's service.
