Buy prepaid SIM with data plan in HYD area?

by Russell_and_Julie

Hi Hyderbadians!

I carry a (GSM) Windows SmartPhone I use at home in the United States. During past trips to India, I have purchased a SIM when I arrive, normally from AirTel.

I have a few questions I'm hoping someone can answer:

1. What is best service provider (prepaid) in HYD?

2. Do any service providers allow you to buy/purchase a "data plan" so I can surf from my phone and keep email up to date?

3. Are the requirements for copies of your picture ID (for me, a passport) and proof of address still necessary when buying one?

I'll also be going to Rishikesh & Haridwar afterwards, so I'd like to have at least voice service in those places, too.

Thanks!

Hello,
Airtel still remain top choice as it would be available all over india.Hutch and idea are the other GSM providers.
As far as calls are concerned, you can get a sim for 100 ( m sure in hyd it costs 100 rupees) and then go for plan as per your calls whether it is International/national/local or internet plan you need.
Yes a picture and a photograph ID is required still.
I would suggest airtel better than hutch and idea.
As far as browsing is concerned, you can also try TATA indicomm or reliance .surf their websites, i m jotting down.As with TATA or reliance , you can get a low tariff connection with GPRS cable n connection with phone itself.It sucks if you are coming from US.I loose patience sometimes here as i am used to work on leaslines in office. Patience is the key , then all is fine with it.
Here are the websites
airtel.in
hutch.in
tataindicom.com
reliancecommunications.co.in

Hope it helps.lemme know if u need anything more..

I am from malaysia, currently in Hyderabad on work. yes you will need your passport, 1 picture passport size, and proof of residence,..address where you are going to be. If its a hotel, then the hotel has to issue a letter.

If you dont have a picture, your can get it taken free at the AirTel office.

Travel Tips for Hyderabad

How Much to Tip??

by Donna_in_India

N/A

Tipping is fairly common in India with the exception of rickshaw drivers or taxi drivers, unless you hire them for the day (although a few rupees or rounding up the fare is always appreciated). These amounts are meant as a guideline. Tip ONLY in rupees, not any other currency. Check to see if a service charge has already been added to any bill.

Waiters - generally 10-15 percent of the bill in upscale places, in smaller places (local/budget) tip Rs. 10-20.

Bellmen - Rs. 50 - 100 (depending on how much luggage).

Hotel Doorman - Rs. 50-100 when you checkout.

Hotel Maid - Rs. 100-200 for your stay (5+ days). Be sure to hand deliver.

Room Service - Rs. 20-50. (20 for smaller things, 50 for meal delivery).

Drivers/ Guides - half day/ Full day sightseeing trips Rs. 150 - 250.

Drivers/ Guides - long trips spread over many days Rs. 150 - 200 Per traveller/ day.

Porters (train stations/airports) - set the rate beforehand (around Rs. 10-20 per bag).

THE BIRYANI

by navendu_shirali about World famous Hyderabadi Biryani

On the way to Charminar, just ask anyone for Hotel Shadaab.
The aroma and taste of biryani will make you go mmmmm..

Second best biryani is of course the traditional Paradise Biryani. Veg Family pack is a steal for 130 Rs odd you get amazing food, from biryani to rumali rotis. BIRYANI and try some kebabs

Ramoji Film City

by muddybok

Ramoji Film City, a movie making complex about 1 hour away (by bus) from Hyderabad city. If you have visited Disney, and some world best theme parks (even Genting Highlands theme park in Malaysia), please do not waste your time (especially money) to visit here.

The Lonely Planet guide didn't highlight that bus number 205, 206 & 207 departing from Women's College are between 8:30-11:30am. You may need to check with the bus stop guide for alternate bus going to Ramoji if you missed the morning slots. Anyway, don't believe the local that Ramoji will require the whole day in order you to really explore the place. I personally find Ramoji Film City boring, lack creativity and should send few staffs to visit world famous parks and try to imitate some of their concepts/themes.

You will not derive even half the excitement as compare to Genting Highlands theme park. And the admission fee is definitely overpriced for foreigners.

Hyderabad-the land of nawabs

by sabarish

"Hyderabad-the land of nawabs"

Neither as fastpaced as Mumbai, nor as slow as Calcutta. Neither as conservative as Chennai, and nor as cosmo as Bangalore. Neither as salubrious as Pune nor as polluted as Delhi.The name Hyderabad conjures up visions of a vibrant city of minarets and modern high-rise buildings. A natural and sophisticated blend of old and new - an old royal culture with a new pro-active approach and hospitality. The teeming bazaars of the old city, in the midst of which stands the historic 400-year-old Charminar, the hyper-markets and ultra-modern multiplexes in the newer areas of the city all add to the charm of Hyderabad.
