- 2G customers of Vi will be able to make voice calling, but internet will not work
The new year has started with the good news of unlimited free calling for Jio users. On the other hand, a bad news has come for Vodafone Idea users. Actually, Vodafone-Idea (Vi) plans to discontinue its 3G service in Delhi in the new year. According to the report, 3G services will be shut down in Delhi for Vi users from 15 January. That is, these users have to port on their SIM 4G network. The company is telling its customers about this through SMS.
According to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Vi has over one crore 62 lakh subscribers in Delhi Circle. Now all these 3G users will have to port their SIM to 4G by January 15. For this, the company will give free SIM. However, this will not affect Vi’s 2G customers. That is, these users will be able to take voice calling facility, but will not get internet access on the old SIM.
3G service already discontinued in Mumbai, Bengaluru
Vodafone Idea has stopped 3G services in cities like Bangalore and Mumbai last year. In such a situation, Vi customers of Delhi will also not get the benefit of this service. However, now customers will have the option of porting their number to other 4G networks as well.
Process to port the number
- Give space by typing PORT in the message box and write your mobile number.
- Now send this message to 1900.
- You will get a code with which the number will be ported.
- Tell this code to any telecom company’s 4G SIM you are taking.
- From there you will get a new SIM, which will be operational within 7 days.
Here’s how: Suppose your mobile number is 1234567890, then write PORT 1234567890 and send it to 1900.
Jio starts local unlimited calling
The new year for Reliance Jio users has started with a sigh of relief. From January 1, free unlimited calling has started on networks other than Jio to Jio and off-net. Jio said that users can take advantage of free calling at any network and location across the country. That is, interconnect usage charges (ICUs) will no longer have to be given. Earlier the company used to give Limited FUP (Fair Usage Policy) minutes to other networks.
