The Unbiased Blog Verdict:

It surely is a great move for the consumers, specially who have friends and family abroad. But how successfully it is adapted by the masses is still a big question. There are few points we would like to highlight:

  • 1 Paise per second call is limited to only handful countries like UK, USA and Canada
  • Landline and Mobile call rates differ when you are calling to these countries
  • A leading operator clocks an average of 1500 crore paid minutes of international calling
  • As of now you cannot use your existing Nimbuzz profile to add credit. For some weird reason you have to create a new profile to be eligible to add credit
  • In the future stores would have recharge coupons, starting from as low as 10 rupees
  • Till the next update from Nimbuzz, the number that displays on the Caller Id of the person abroad would not be your own mobile number. It will be a random Indian number assigned to your profile
