The number provided in the post is a BPL Mobile number of Mumbai. Though its a non premium number, be sure that it won’t cost you like national sms.
@Pavan Kumar –
I guess its still cheaper than premium SMS.
Still nice point as some operator charge heavy for national SMS compared to their local SMS rate.
@Pavan Kumar –
Why?? Being similar to any other 10 digit mobile number, why will it not cost similar to the usual charges??
Are you sure about it?
