Quite a while ago, I had said that I don’t want to see my mobile bill cross Rs 400. The graph above clearly illustrates that I am still seeing it.

Theoretically, I can achieve a monthly maximum discount of Rs 340 (600 free local minutes x Rs 0.40 per minute + 200 free local SMS x Rs 0.50 per SMS). Actual discounts has been on an upward trend. So has the final bill amount — unfortunately. December’s culprit was a lengthy inter-state call I had a with a friend.

What does your mobile bill look like?

You definetely would love to know about me mate! because you are not the only one coughing up a lot on mobile bills..My last 2 months bill were more than 150SGD and 175SGD..Thanks to Airtel services and my Auto-Roam facility, a few stupid people in Singapore called me when I was in India..and I stupidly picked it up. You can feel happy that I am with you sailing in the same boat. :-)
