Airtel GPRS sucks

I feel a kind of emptiness that I have not felt in a very long time. I just wanted to write it down somewhere.

Really do not know what is going in my head. I just feel a little too confused. Just a week back things seemed so clear and then there are doubts cast all over. I think this phase will get over soon enough but till then need to put my head in the right place.

Eventually I would like to work on XUL, XForms and SVG. But cannot say what and where things will lead to. I am just not thinking of technology all that much. But let’s see, tomorrow is another day.

I am using a GPRS connection now and it simply crawls. It refuses to log into Google Talk, plus there is no way I can use any S/W to upload the blog articles. I have to log into Blogger and post them from there. I hope I can get a broadband soon enough. I had forgotten that net can be soooo.. slllooooooooooowwwwww. It’s taken me 3 hours to post this, and I am not kidding. Anyhow I did a couple of things during this time but still. It should not have taken more than a few minutes to complete the process.

And I thought I had opened up the blogger dashboard. I was so wrong. It’s still trying to open it as I type. I doubt if I will be able to post this tonight or ever.

And now I can finally blame all my problems on my Airtel GPRS. If it was any slower... I don’t even know what I was going to say argghhh..

Hi, set up a proxy on your pc, set up a caching DNS, or use your hosts file and speed up ur connect, and reduce data transfer. I am strggling with a billing issue here. i just DO NOT understand the huge bills they are sending me, even though my plan says that i get 1GB free!!!!. I hope you can explain.

I activated GPRS but finally when I didn't receive any settings, I found it from the net. However the speed was so pathetic that I sent sms to deactivate. However after repeated attempts, I couldn't deactivate the same. I called up 121 a number of times but still no result. I sent emails but nothing happened. This is 10th day on 20th April 2008 and everyday 14.99 is being deducted from my account. You will be better off without usingg ARIRTEL GPRS, it sucks big time but ofcourse not as big as their customer support. My name is Mustafa and my number is 9987911599 if somebody wants to verify this.
