AirTel has been going nasty with it’s plans’ prices since past few months. After uneconomical call plans, it has been charging it’s customers high for the SMS packs also.

Personal experience: Bad customer support, illegal balance deductions, and now this mess up with plan prices – there are a number of reasons to leave AirTel prepaid. I am hating their services and about to switch to some other network.

I have collected the latest data about their available SMS Packs for prepaid to help other AirTel users not to get confused by their old rates they display on *121# menu. Note that no special paper recharge for SMS is in practice in current.
