Airtel providing net on phone (NOP) for prepaid subscribers in Delhi

Finally something to cheer for Airtel prepaid subscribers. Now they could also have access to Internet for a monthly fees of 99 Rs. Though you are able to view both WAP and regular HTML (non wap ) sites, I am unable to use any other applications which use the Internet (like messengers, gmail app) etc. To access full GPRS capabilities you need to use Mobile Office which is generally charged at either 399 or 499 per month (not sure about the figure), in addition I stll need to confirm that whether it's being offered for pre paid customers.

1/28/08 Update

Airtel is now not charging any monthly fees for the same, but now you can directly use Airtel Live settings to browse the whole internet at the charges of 15 paise for 10 kb (Check the Airtel Live portal to get the exact rates).

Just waiting for the mobile office charges from Airtel to come down (from the current 500 ) to something which I can actually manage ;-).
