How to Check 2G/3G Internet Data Balance in Idea, Aircel and BSNL


In India, a large number of people uses their smartphone or basic feature phone to access the internet on the go. Using the internet on mobile phones provides convenient and also the cheaper alternative for regular internet usage.

Social Networks like Facebook has played a significant role in making the mobile internet so popular among people. The internet in India is not cheap anymore as it was 2 years ago. Now you would get only about 500MB of data for Rs 100 whereas it was around 2GB for Rs 58 2 years ago. 

Now that you have very limited amount of internet bandwidth to use, you may also want to keep an eye on the amount of data usage remaining in your account. This is necessary, because if you exceed the allowed limit of the bandwidth then your carrier will start charging for whatever amount of extra bandwidth you use.

Most of the time, you will see a bill of more than 100 Rs if you used the internet for just half an hour after exceeding your internet usage. Now to avoid such situations, it is a good practice to keep an eye on the internet data balance in your smartphone.

 Now, if you are looking for a guide to know how to check 2G & 3G Internet Data Balance in Aircel, Idea and BSNL then follow these steps.
