  • Nice move! Telenor!

    Hope the other operators will too come up with similar service. However, i wonder if this will not FAIL!! The feasibility seems to be Not-So-Good in the current scenario, where govt will charge 20paisa Tax on each SMS starting 1st july.

  • @ haseeb: it works wonders :) all you need to remember is 2277.. to sell ur car type “Sell Adtext” and send it to 2277.. silmilarly to buy a suzuki liana type “Buy Suzuki Liana” and send to 2277.. i have used this service by telenor and i loved it :) love to telenorrr

  • @ maddy: i think 20 paisas tax has not been levied nw.. the cost of this service is Rs 3 plus tax… and i think its wonderful, it does not fail and secondly, i mean u can place ur ad in just 3 rupees.. i l say HATS OFF TELENOR.
