PreTones by Idea Cellular, is it another Value Added Service to Fetch Money from Customers?

Just a while ago, Idea cellular announced the launch of a new Value Added Service for its customer in Andhra Pradesh telecom circle called ‘PreTones‘ using which Idea customers can listen to a host of content (ranging from live cricket action, jokes to tickle the funny bone, breaking news as it happens, astrology forecast, latest movie review and spicy Bollywood gossip) before they make any voice calls. The service is launched in partnership with Oorja Mobile Services.

Idea Cellular

    I am Using Idea from last 3 years but from last three months even customer is not not replying properly and using harsh language towards the customers.

    If I am asking about any automatic deduction of money they will tell that its like that only. we cannot help
    then why idea is keeping this customer cares?\\

    With My experience i learnt that customer care is only for activation of faltu things to the idea users
