  1. Got the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Handset for my son through Amazon. It's the 2GB/16GB model. Costed 9998/- It's a dual sim/dual standby handset. If you want to use the micro sd card port to expand memory then you will have to sacrifice one sim. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 Hexa Core processor with a clock speed of 1.8Ghz, a 5.5" Full HD display IPS panel, 16MP rear and a 5MP front shooter and a 4000maH battery which easily lasts two days with moderate usage. In the box Front Rear Aluminum body with the top and bottom plastic accents for better reception for the antennas they house. Quite iphone like premium build. Very lightweight for such a big phone and very easy to hold in hand. Bottom view of the micro usb port and the mic The left side has only the sim slot Which opens by this provided tool To reveal this sim housing which houses the sim 1 and sim2/micro sd hybrid slot The right side has the power and the volume buttons which are excellently finished and provide a tactile feel The top view which houses the 3.5mm jack, secondary mic, and yes, a IR blaster. You can use the phone to fully control all your electronic devices. A view of the front facing camera and the earpiece. All other sensors (proximity, light etc.) are hidden and not visible to the eye. A view of the rear camera, dual flash and yes, a very fast and excellent fingerprint sensor. A 2Amp fast charger is provided and even though they do not claim fast charging, I can confirm that fast charging works great. A size comparison with my Asus Zenfone 2. Same screen size but still the RN3 is more compact even after having a much bigger battery. It also has more premium feel in hand compared to the Asus which costed almost twice. Yes, it is VoLTE enabled and Jio compatible The APN setting done by the Reliance World chap, in case anyone is interested The preferred network (according to him) has to be at Global. But none worked for EVDO (till now) About Phone The mobile network state stays at connecting while trying to connect to EVDO While it did connect once while it was on 1x Speeds were pathetic on 1x though But amazing speeds on WiFi Some views of the box and SAR values. It is a MADE IN INDIA product. Cheers for now from dkaile Rest, some points I have discussed on the other "Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 supports CDMA" thread. More inputs to follow here.

  2. Requirements:- QXDM Not Required:- Root, Bootloader unlock Steps:- Part I:- GSM edge unlock 1. Select LTE from mobile networks settings. Remove SIM and switch off phone 2. Boot into bootloader mode and select BPTools, after phone boots, enable debugging 3. Map the comports correctly to QXDM 4. Airplane mode 5. In QXDM, open command prompt, type spc=000000 6. Open NV browser, look for item 441 and make it 0x383 or 0xFFF in band line, click write 7. Look further for NV item 946, write 0x0028 in band pref 8. Lastly item no 1877 and write 2622339 to rf_bc_config line 9. Reboot 10. Phone now boots in global mode, insert GSM SIM and use with EDGE data. CDMA section remains untouched. Part II:- 3G HSPA+ UMTS 2100 mhz unlock (part II only after getting Edge signal) 1. Select LTE from mobile networks settings. Remove SIM and switch off phone 2. Boot into bootloader mode and select BPTools, after phone boots, enable debugging 3. Map the comports correctly to QXDM 4. Airplane mode 5. In QXDM, open command prompt, type spc=000000 6. NV item 946, write 0x0EA8 in band pref 6. NV item 1877 and write 245891456 to rf_bc_config line 7. Full flash current firmware by fastboot with emphasis on fastboot erase modemst1, fastboot erase modemst2 8. Phone boots in global mode with HSPA+ Note:- Firmware flashing will remove unstable signal issue. All the changes will be permanent. CDMA/evdo remains as it was earlier.

  3. This forum started for maintenance and guidelines for the CDMA user community. If one carrier stops, we switch to a different operator. I am writing this, because no one is sure of any particular CDMA continuing in short future. BSNL can help CDMA users in some regions of service and will help those who have single network handset. I am also aware that BSNL is surrendering cdma spectrum in some states but it still help us. RUIM of BSNL is hybrid type, data works on normal sim based handsets like Moto E, Moto X, Droid series etc and also on handsets like VZW Note 3, Note 5, S5, S6, S7 Nexus 6 etc. A small amount of one time programming is required after sim activation. Note that there is no *228 for OTAF and was removed from network in 2010. MIP profile type:- make simple IP from mobile ip (mainly essential) Ppp user= your10digitmin@AAAVD.in (only required in some handsets) Ppp pass= your10digitmin Dial string/APN= #777 BSNL CDMA back end all India operations are handled from Vadodara and we can directly contact them for any issues.

  4. Port to GSM is bull**** ! RCOM already developgin 4G SIM for CDMA as well as GSM customer they just need to get new 4G SIM which will fallback to GSM network for calls ! NO NEED to PORT HERE and THERE ! 4G SIM is in testing ! mya be available after 30 days in select circle ! in Few Circle they might have to surrender CDMA before the 4G SIM comes so they may force to get Temporary GSM by GSM porting ! But again 4G SIM have to be upgraded for GSM customer also /!

  5. Some BSNL centers take some fees for EvDo 'plan activation' which is permanent and one time, irrespective of sim replacements.

  6. Mukesh Ambani is here to do business and not charity. The reason behind giving Free is to import as much as users on their network so that the network gets over saturated (Because the low ARPU users try to squeeze the last bit of data which otherwise they cannot afford to). He wants to make sure that the system shall perform well in future - so by doing so he will be able to test the load capacity and stability of his network as well. Further being a business man he will also be able to release payment of the company who is commissioning the project across India once he is convinced that the system is OK for handling extreme load (conducting real time thorough testing). As far as calls are concerned Jio themselves are responsible for call drops - By doing so they are tarnishing the image of competitors as well as savings money which they have to pay as interconnect charges otherwise. Just the way they have put a limit of 4GB for data - likewise they have also put a limit in their network for total number of calls to through to other networks which costs money to them. Out of total subscribers hardly 20% of the users will be heavy users whereas 70% will be average users and 10% will be light users once the charges are imposed after commercial launch. So finally when FREE scenario will be over the Jio performance will surge up suddenly. But as KanagaDeepan said Jio should not Drag/extend this FREE scheme beyond January otherwise it will obviously have adverse affect as well as give opportunity to AVoID to hold back customers with new lucrative offers (which they have already started). Instead of FREE they should have given the SIM for some kind of advance 3 months deposit/subscription which would be adjusted once the commercial services start and shall be binding - then the things would have been different and only genuine users would have approached for the SIM. At the moment any TOM DIC-K & HARRY is just taking a SIM for 3 months FREE RIDE and believe me will never ever use JIO once the free period is over. So although Jio may succeed in having millions of subscribers in their customer base but the active users will be much less than that after commencement of the commercial launch. Good luck JIO!!

  7. From Tomorrow onwards. MNP is going to be started with JIO, only selected persons/companies. Those who opting MNP will be ported to JIO with unlimited preview for 90 days without any phone. Just now got the info from one of the JIO employee. Will confirm after seeing the internal circular, who are eligible to MNP. Initially, all the JIO employee sims (their personal sims of different networks) are eligible. This is confirmed.

  9. Enough of this endless waiting for 4G. I warn these Ambani brothers to get in line and start 4G. Otherwise..... I will be compelled to get 2 rcom 2G sims, insert into my dual sim phone, activate data in both and forcefully extract 2G+2G = 4G data from rcom network. ☺☺☺☺

  11. everyone is so eager for 4g, its like the moment these sims get activated and the ultra high speed bandwidth starts working..........something is going to explode and give way to new means instantly. it is going to be exciting but doesnt matter if these connections start working in a week or few weeks from now. its not going to be a life altering experience straight away, yes in longer run it will lead & pave way for great possibilities. till then hold your horses all the enthusiastic people. being prepared for the new tech is great, the anticipation is fascinating but there isnt gonna be much change once the top of your smartphone screen shows LTE instead of EV, 3G or H+ i know this is not going to stop any of our forum members craze but i just had to vent out here.

  12. Aa gayi bhai logo, aa gayi....lolz The amount taken per sim is Rs. 25/- (sim cost) + 97/- for 4G Recharge which includes UNLIMITED local and std Reliance calls + 150 minutes of Local & STD calls + 1GB Data for 30 days. These benefits start immediately on existing CDMA sim/number. It is a modern pre-cut sim which you can use in any phone (no need to get it cut from outside). Then you need to sms 4G<space><19 digit 4G sim number> to 1299 from existing cdma sim and you will get a confirmatory message that Dear Customer, your request for 4G upgrade has been registered on SIM <number>. We will update you regarding upgrade. Thank you. RCOM. Please note that the 4G sim is yet NOT ACTIVATED and you can't use it. They are saying that it should be activated max by 5th May. After activation you get an additional 10GB 4G data for one month besides the above benefits. So that is the exercise till now. Cheers...

  19. The new Nexus 6 is very easy to program. RGERUC and RECRUC068 work out of the box on this device. Data needs simple steps by DFS. Required:- Latest Motorola BP drivers, DFS Not required:- Root, bootloader unlock 1. Boot the phone into BP tools and select port "diag mdm" with no SIM inside and airplane mode turned on. 2. Make RTRE config to RUIM pref and reboot back to BP tools (can make it RUIM only after programming is complete) 3. Write omhxxx in ppp usr and S1912xxx in ppp password 4. Continue in data section in DFS, HDR SCP force AT config= RevA_MFPA HDR SCP force rel 0= Evdo_RevA Hybrid mode=enable Data MDR HSPD mode= MDR only 5. Insert RGERUC SIM and continue programming 5. Enable all six profiles in MIP section and write omhtestxx in all the six fields with MIP=Mobile IP 6. Reboot and enjoy.

  23. RCOM CDMA used Lucent network cards and ATC hardware, Tata CDMA and BSNL CDMA used Cisco network cards and ZTE hardware. Reliance GSM used China made cheap hardware, some components costing a mere Rs 60. Moreover RGSM is based on 1800 mhz hence frequent maintenance. Reliance cannot improve voice quality after some extent so they have made illegal icr to Tata Docomo GSM even where it's own network exists. Idea and Vodafone have invested astronomically in 4G components so they will any day provide superior quality. If the upcoming 700 Mhz LTE slots are bagged by idea, it will be pack off time for RCOM-RJIO alliance. RJIO has an obsession to create and expand it's LTE capacity because it feels even if they dont get enough subscribers of their own, they will trade 4G icr with other GSM operators like Videocon and Uninor. 4G monopoly of RJIO will be destroyed further when 3G operators will give narrow band 4G on their same spectrum. There is no sim card ICCID IMEI binding like Jio in other networks. Reliance will definitely be instrumental in providing cheap 4G as LTE revolution but ultimately other networks will succeed.

  29. For those who still want to hang on to CDMA based handsets can approach nearest BSNL CSC and collect new prepaid/new postpaid or CDMA MNP blank sim cards. BSNL RUIM work on most Sprint/USC/Verizon phones. BSNL has very cheap 1x and evdo plans beneficial for users owning handsets like Tribute, HTC 510, LG Volt2 etc. Tata Indicom also gives out all services and there has not been any public notice of it's closing down. If any Tata Indicom store person refuses to provide MNP sim or prepaid or postpaid, make a call to Tata cc and they will ask the store guys to give. I will provide some assistance to RCDMA subscribers from Gujarat willing to port to any of the above.

  30. Due to a large section of buyers now opting to purchase GSM enabled CDMA device, I add another device for CDMA data provisioning. There are no special requirements to enable CDMA data on VZW G3. Root is not required. This is applicable to those users whose manual APN of #777 does not enable data. 1. From the dialpad, ##PROGRAM985, go to port test, switch it on. Diag mode will be ON. 2. With data enabled SIM inside, using DFS, go to data section and select, evdo_MFPA 3. Enable all the six profiles with omhtest@omh.relianceinfo.com in the MIP section fields and write. 4. May sometimes need to make APN as #777 if data does not start.

  33. Jio has pan india spectrum in band 40 - 2300Mhz. It also has Band 5 - 850 Mhz sharing with Reliance. It further acquired in auction band 3 - 1800 Mhz in some circles. If Jio's 4G for Reliance CDMA upgrade customers is deployed on band 5, it will also deploy 4G in band 3 & 40. Otherwise what Jio will do with spectrum in band 3 & 40? My proposition is that a 4G handset with band 3 support should work in some circles & with band 40 support should work in all circles for data. (VOLTE will depend on handset support). Handset without VOLTE support should also work for voice as Jio has Pan India agreement with BSNL & Reliance Communication for 2G/3G voice fallback. So the conclusion is, All handset with particular deployed 4G band in respective circle but without VOLTE will latch on either BSNL or R COM GSM network for voice All handset with particular deployed 4G band in respective circle but with VOLTE will use Jio data network for Voice & will switch to 2G/3G voice fallback where Jio coverage ends. Is my understanding correct?

  35. GSM with 3G HSPA+ unlocked on LG Tribute5 LS675 using SPR LS990 method after root with Kingroot 4.8.3.apk. After placing node.db file in carrier folder, look for the cust.prop and edit the lines ro.cdma.home.operator to Chameleon and ro.numeric to 000000. Save and exit. This will bring GSM/UMTS selection option in mobile networks settings. Do not rename or delete any system files in Tribute 5. Only freeze them by de-bloater pc app. Do not unroot after GSM unlock process. To be safe, take a qcn backup in qpst before beginning this process. Sent from my K016 using Tapatalk

  40. @LTE4G Good point, reg the possibility of call being restricted from JIO's end as well, to minimize IUC payments... Now I have seen that only 100 calls / minutes free per day limit applicable for prepaid users in JIO. NOT sure, if its a welcome offer thingy or applicable for all, especially in Rs149 plan. I am sure nobody will care about that in JWO, as calls are hardly connecting. For Rs149 per 28 days, if they apply the same limit (100 mins per day) that brings to 2800 minutes for Rs149 and with current IUC of 14p / min it comes to around Rs392. That Rs243 loss can be easily adjusted by IUC from incoming calls [14p/min income by IUC] and Jio2Jio calls (no need to pay IUC for the calls), unused FREE calls per day, overage charges @ 2p/sec in home and Rs0.45 / Rs0.80 / Rs1.15 during roaming. Simply put, FREE calls is NOT a big deal / loss for JIO, imho...

  41. Coupon code is still a must... MNP for now is not a good decision, even for secondary connections. AVoId group will never give enough poi till the end of freebies as they don't have any other weapon to counter the jio freebies and avoid port out of their customers. Even if trai slaps them with penalty, they will say, we are increasing poi, it will be OK within weeks, but still deliberately not give enough poi for sure. So wait for the drama to complete by 31-dec-16. But one thing is for sure, if jio increases the free usage till March 2016, then real high end users will get annoyed of jio without any doubt. Except few of high end users who got early access to jio services [like us], most of them are waiting for end of free services. They really don't care much about free services, don't like standing in lines, don't like the way DX store guys [due to heavy work load] treat, don't like to wait few weeks for activation. For them, even paying double for services is better than bearing those annoyances and that's where AVoId rules. The people who are ready to stand in line for hours doing nothing will not really help jio in ARPU. But, If you still want to try MNP on jio for your tertiary number [hardly used for calls], then look for a DX store with NO lazy guys [hard to find] and also having eKYC facility + blank sim availability. Finding such a store is slightly easier than finding an unicorn. I have got all my jio sims from other state as the DX Mini guys in my hometown are good for nothing, super lazy+ dumb, burden for jio. All the best. sent from my Lenovo vibe P1 using Tapatalk

  42. No confusion. Jio join needs your phone [whether 2g or 3g or 4g phone] connected to jio network. So a phone connected to jio network via jioFi [using Wi-Fi tech] qualifies as well. Similarly for jio sim in 4g non volte phone. Yes. This is a much more important issue. Not everyone jumps to buy volte phone. For example in my family everyone has 4g phone, but none of them is volte capable. So jio must concentrate on launching good quality LYF phones with great battery life. These LYF phones never last long and so the name LYF is not at all suitable for them, imho. According to me $EX would have been a better brand name for those short lived phones. So I recommend the following names for their phone series.. LYF == $EX Flame == Hand [better than Nothing] Wind == 0ral [now we are talking -- may be not] Water == $traight [upTo the point] Earth == 3sum [more features and price] sent from my Lenovo vibe P1 using Tapatalk

  45. At my home, I am experiencing voice quality of reliance 4g far superior than Airtel. I cant talk on airtel without voice breaking while Reliance 4G is as good as CDMA was.

  46. I have been using Reliance after porting it from TATA Indicom where I was a postpaid customer for 10 years. Reason being, they stopped their services in almost entire Bihar, entire J&K. And I roam a lot, travel a lot. And I needed a good connection worth TATA Indicom. Except for when they closed, Indicom was a thousand x better than RIM. If my cust care call had to wait for more than 1 minutes, I received a call back. If I complained about anything, and SLA used to be 24/72/36 hours and if it weren't resolved used to get discount in bills without asking. I used port out request, randomly, for the heck of it...and I got 200x6months discount on billing. I was a GOLD customer for them, don't know what that means, but had Credit limit of 14000. And my bill never went above 1k. My plan was of Rs. 399/- worth Rs. 300 free calling. 30p local, 50p std. TATA to TATA free. Incoming free. O/G used to be T-T free, otherwise 30/50p. SMS free. I really have deep respect and love for CDMA operators they forced the market to change. From a talktime of Rs. 90/- in Rs. 330 recharge per month validity, they had to change because Indicom had launched Rs. 300/- in Rs. 330/- per month with innovative per second billing. First in World. They changed the scenario. Then they launched incoming free way back in 2005-06, which COAI got stopped because of pressure from GSM operators like Airtel, Hutch! Before that RIM had launched MOnsoon Dhamaka...and DAPO which had changed the market! My salute to the pioneers of the market! I had opted for Airtel once for want of handset, when I realised what I go through.....I chose to make my Indicom no as primary one. It has stayed for so more than a decade now with CDMA. Previouslywith Indicom, since Oct with RCDMA. They are dying a death, because Ratan TATA and Mukesh Ambani personally couldn't do anything about it! If RCDMA were with Mukesh Bhai, it would have had been different. Launching a handset in 2002 with live video streaming was nothing more than a dream for Indian customers. Live news channels, everything. He subverted a few policies, but it was good for customers. He changed the market. Later on when it went with Anil, and indicom was given over....things changed for worse!

  47. Similar experience here... went to nearest web world shop...saw the guy struggling with sim reader...he did not know in which direction to insert the sim. (Personal observation: the sim patching devices which reliance is handing over to them are...well buggy, they seem like sawed off version of sim reader) Anyways...i offered to help but this guy was too proud i guess....my 10+ years of telecom and hardware/software patching seemed irrelevant. The next shop flatly refused. Finally, the one at Pitam pura (like 5 kms from my house) was much more accommodating....i helped him patch the imported handsets (APN, *#*#4636*#*# network selection etc) Spent like an hour after my sim was patched helping other customers...the shop was empty when i was allowed to leave.:)

  48. Information given by tower engineering personnel on 21/05/2016 for Gujarat: "No information given by infrastructure / MSC department to modify CDMA signal or shut down bts temporarily or permanent. No instructions for gain control or horn adjustments or aperture leveling. No messages from switching centre" But it is possible the entire changeover will happen at MSC and current CDMA bts not involved in the upgrade process. While the process of shifting MDN/MSID in msc has started, cdma will not close today or tomorrow. Also the rumors of 3 day blackout in the cdma network is not given by infrastructure department so it might not happen. Subscribers who have not taken 4G upgrade (more than 60% users in Gujarat still on RCDMA) will continue on Reliance for the next two weeks. Before Reliance shuts down it's own CDMA, it will/may/can silently transfer users to MTS for 1X connectivity only. EvDo Rev A/B is not likely post MTS shifting. MTS was using 1X Reliance for voice calls in GJ since many years so this technology usability is not difficult to achieve. Reliance has been changing it's policy quite often during this month. It is also likely RCDMA will continue and 4G will be provided using MTS spectrum. Major factor is the subscribers' willingness to switch over to 4G. Assuming there will be no CDMA within a week but users can still obtain mdn specific port code from Reliance store from their UI. The option to upgrade to 4G from their system is even after total close down. Users can still port out once their 4G sim is operational. Just as Hetal bhai mentioned about CSFB to be used in RCOM 4G, it would have been a wonderful technological breakthrough if it was 1XCSFB as upgrade. CDMA is not a legacy technology, Rcom did not want to invest more in CDMA, they wanted 4G for GSM and with minimal capital investment. The most viable solution given to them was to liberalize CDMA and use the same infrastructure for cheap 4G. Even after shutting down their own CDMA, they can still provide 1XCSFB in MTS states with LTE routed to the new Rcom 4G. Sent from my K016 using Tapatalk

  49. Reliance Communications mobile stores will start getting 4G SIMs starting some time next week for offering it to existing CDMA subscribers, said a source based in Kerala. However, till Jio’s full launch, neither new CDMA connections nor new 4G connections will be sold by RCom. Only upgrades to existing CDMA users will be provided. As we reported earlier, Reliance Communications — promoted by Anil Ambani — has put up a sign on its website saying 4G upgrade is coming soon. It has also started sending text messages to its CDMA subscribers that their service is going to be upgraded to 4G soon and they can call on 1299 to get more details about how to get a new 4G SIM. According to our source in Kerala, Reliance Mobile stores across the state have already placed orders for new 4G SIMs and stock is expected to come “after the 25th.” Once stock comes, anyone who has a Reliance CDMA connection can walk in, pay Rs 100 and get the USIM replaced by a new 4G capable SIM. The person said that as of now, higher officials are saying that existing plans of CDMA customers will remain in place and will not be changed. “It will simply be a change of network technology. Tariff plans will not be changed,” said the person. However, he added that since 4G is a more efficient and data-focused technology, cheaper data plans could be introduced after Jio’s commercial launch. NO NEW CONNECTIONS TILL JIO LAUNCH The source said RCom’s initial launch of 4G will be in the ‘soft mode’, just like in case of Reliance Jio. As a result, at least in the beginning, focus will be on upgrading existing customers to 4G and not on selling new 4G connections. This is likely the result of some agreement with Reliance Jio. If RCom were to start selling new 4G connections even before Jio starts full commercial launch, it could affect Jio’s prospects when it does launch. As a result, RCom is likely to have agreed not to sell new connections, but only offer upgrade SIMs to existing CDMA customers. 50% DISCOUNT FOR 4G DONGLES The person also said Reliance Communications will also be offering a 50% discount on dongle prices for those who want to exchange their old Reliance Communications data dongle (data card). The old dongles will not work on the new RCom-Jio shared 4G network as it uses a totally different technology known as LTE. These new 4G data dongles are likely to have a price of 2,000-3,000 without discount, the person said. An exchange discount of 50% would mean that the current EVDO or CDMA dongle will be valued at Rs 1,000-1,500 by the company under the offer. The initial cost of an RCom EVDO dongle is around Rs 800-1,500, depending on whether it is a Revision A device or a Rev B device. CDMA SALES STOPPED To ensure that people do not try to ‘misuse’ the upgrade offer to get hold of new connections, Reliance Communications has stopped activating new CDMA connections. This does not mean that it is necessarily abandoning CDMA services, as it also has MTS’ spectrum for continuing CDMA services. However, it does mean that till Jio launches its 4G service on a full and commercial level, RCom will not be selling new CDMA connections, or 4G connections to new customers. The person also said that senior RCom officials have guided December as the time when restrictions on new connections will be lifted, indicating that Jio too will transition from ‘soft launch’ to ‘hard launch’ by that time. WHY THE UPGRADE OFFER? The primary reason why RCom is being allowed to upgrade its CDMA subscribers to RCom-Jio’s joint 4G network is the need for Jio to test the 800 MHz spectrum. Since 800 MHz is coming from RCom’s CDMA service, when Jio starts testing it, RCom’s CDMA subscribers will face a lot of service issues, especially in the 14 telecom zones where MTS is not operating. To compensate for this disturbance, Jio is reported to have agreed to let RCom’s CDMA subscribers move to its 4G network even before it starts full commercial operations. RCOM’S CDMA (4G) DATA TARIFF image: http://rtn.asia/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/RCOM-prepaid-4g-tariff-300x239.png Since existing offers are likely to be continued, RCom’s website gives a clue about how much a 4G user will have to pay for data after the upgrade. According to RCom’s website, there are broadly three postpaid plans for dongle users — 5 GB, 10 GB and 40 GB. The 5 GB postpaid plan is priced at Rs 599 plus tax, which should work out to about Rs 675 per month, or Rs 135 per GB. The 10 GB pack is priced at Rs 799, which should cost about Rs 900 after tax, implying Rs 90 per GB. The 40 GB pack costs Rs 999, or about Rs 1120 after tax, bring the per-GB cost to Rs 28, making it the cheapest high-speed data plan in the country. The above are tariff for RCom’s postpaid service. In addition, RCom also offers prepaid data tariff. However, here, there are three types of tariffs. The first tariff chart is for mobile handset use. Here, for Rs 250, you get 4 GB of EVDO (high-speed data). However, there are no plans that offer more than 4 GB of data. The second rate-card is for old EVDO data cards (also known as HSD service or EVDO Rev A), while the third tariff card is for Rev B devices. If you own a Rev B device, then you cannot use a Rev A recharge and vice versa. Though there was a lot of difference between the two tariff charts, RCom has, of late, brought both of them into sync to a large extent. According to Rev A rates, you get 2 GB for Rs 255 per month and 5 GB for Rs 499 including tax. For Rs 999, you get 10 (12 GB in some states) of day-time data and another 10 or 12 GB of night-time usage. Rev B rates are also similar, except in circles like AP, Chennai, Maharashtra and Mumbai where you get only 15 GB for 999 recharges. Both Rev A and Rev B plans also contain long validity jumbo packs. In both, you can get 18 GB valid for three months at Rs 1500 and 36 GB valid for six months at Rs 2,999. Meanwhile, a Youtube video has revealed Reliance Jio’s soft launch plans and tariffs.

  50. LTE sim has nothing to do with cdma or gsm handsets. If your handset supports LTE band 3/5/40 then RCOM 4G sim will work maybe the handset is cdma or gsm. But since they are providing voice on 2g/3g gsm network you need gsm handset for both data and voice. With cdma supported sets you can only access data through LTE.
