I have an Airtel landline phone that was delivered to me as a part of the Airtel broadband request. Previously, there was a BSNL Landline in our house, which is still there, but no longer used. From about 3-4 months, I’ve been constantly getting SMS’s from Airtel that says ‘For your Information, calls from Airtel Landline to Airtel Landline will be completely free on Sundays. Airtel landline number starts with 4’.
I don’t know if that offer has received good response or not but lately I see that the offer has been extended to the entire May (2010) during the night time. That is, calls made to any Airtel Landline number on any day at night (from 11pm to 6am) will remain free.
That’s a wonderful offer but the irony is that, I do not have any friends or relatives who have an Airtel Landline phone. BSNL Landline (and hence the Broadband) still rules in India.
During the BSNL landline days, if any month is nearing its end and there are any free calls left un-used, I used to take the BSNL Directory, pick some random numbers and have fun.
Sadly, there is no such directory in Airtel. I know, there wouldn’t be such offers if there is a directory in the first place.
Still, if you want to make some use of this offer, dial any number by changing few numbers from your number. Beware, don’t just change the last few digits, you could just be dialing your neighbor and could get caught, Naughty boy.
Update: Looking at the comments, I guess, no body is finding this post funny (which it was meant to be, sigh) but they are here to find someone else’s number from airtel landline directory. As I said, there is no such thing. If you want to find out who is calling you, the best you could do is know from which city the call is coming from, by its STD code. Further, you could search for that number (with and without STD code) to see if anyone else is receiving calls from that number. You could know the specific person if you know anyone who works at airtel but that is wrong according to Indian laws.
