Hello.

Please let me know if prepaid vodafone and airtel sim cards of Kolkata will be usable in Assam and/or other north east states.The last time I was there in 2008, it was not usable but I have come across this http://telecomtalk.info/dot-allows-p...th-east/67168/ and was wondering if the ban has been lifted.


Kindly advise, it is quite an emergency.

Thanks

You are welcome. Please update this post once you know about other NE states. I have to know if it works in Tripura.

Oh I see. How was the crowd there? We visited Kamakhya on durga pujo previous year, and it was impossible for us to give puja there.

In response to the original question, a prepaid mobile phone from Kolkata did not work at all last year in Nagaland but as soon as we crossed into Assam it worked fine.
