  1. Upc code generation of Aircel

    I think there is some Android app in play store to show sim number as well (link HERE). Will be very useful for customers using very old sim card. Better try that app with only the aircel SIM (preferably on the slot 1) in the phone.
  2. No. Only 2CA afaik...
  3. Getting 10GB addon is not at all an issue. I get it just after 10 minutes of doing plan recharge. Further 999 recharge gives 15GB and 399 or above recharges gives 10GB vouchers. Redeeming the same is also no issue. But it is unusable when u change phone and exhaust plan usage limit (like 1GB per day in old 399). I am using Jio SIM on my old Lenovo YogaTab 3 (8" screen without VoLTE) got from flipkart (don't get from Amazon as it has just 1GB Ram). Now better one is Alcatel pop 4 (10" tab without VoLTE) again from flipkart for under 11k. But don't forget that, when u are using jio number in mobile while doing a recharge, the free add-on will become unusable if you change the SIM to any other phone or tab. So better get a new SIM for the tab, imho... Sent from my Samsung C9 pro using Tapatalk
  4. Do you know the catch in this offer??? NOT at all a big one for most of the people, but for me it is a deal-breaker. The FREE add-on can be used ONLY in the phone which was used during the plan recharge. For example, you are using xiaomi RN4 and do a Rs399 recharge and will get 10GB add-on for FREE. But in case you changed the phone to other say RN5, then the addon will NOT be used at all, even though it was redeemed earlier. I have experienced this in my 4G Tab, while recharge was done on C9 pro. As I said it is NOT a big deal for almost anyone. But for people who change phone often or that old phone got broken, they are in for bad luck. I have recharged for 2 years and obviously can't use th phone for that length of time. So it is NOT that useful in queing more plans in Jio.
  5. I am NOT saying other operators were NOT looting, before jio days. Yes, they have looted and will continue to do so, if they get the slightest chance, even now. No doubts in that. I do agree that, people are getting huge benefits as well. I am NOT against the benefits for mass. I wholeheartedly welcome this. But why they are NOT caring about high ARPU users??? Do you think, they got profit, just from Jio's operations ALONE and NOT from funds of RIL??? Do you think, they will get returns for the 2.5 Lakh Crores, (this amount is as big as budget of few small countries) by offering to masses only? No, they need to concentrate on high ARPU users as well. I will be more happy, if they offered balanced services like, Rs49 Limited plan for feature phone users and Bulk benefits for high ARPU users. I am NOT losing anything, if Idea or Airtel goes to loss (they already are. Idea for 1 year & Airtel from last qtr for India operations). But lack of competition is a HUGE loss for customers. With NO competition, there will be NO need to ensure quality services. Already CC of Jio is the worst. Guess, the situation, when there is NO or little competition? It is much worse than Rs296/GB, imho. Reg "Revival of Looting Era" -- I don't think it will be as severe as AVoId days of Rs296 per GB for sure. At the max, it can go to Rs303 -- 1GB per day for 28 days. When saying LOSS to customers, it is NOT just about money -- It is loss of quality -- It is the loss of Choice -- It is the loss of peace of mind. With NO competition, your money is valueless. That is the real loss.
  6. Sorry, I dis-agree with this point. If they are really into number one position, they must be giving special offers for high ARPU users as well as Postpaid customers (much stickier customers). But their only motto is to KILL THE COMPETITION and nothing else.
  7. I can't understand Jio's strategy. They don't give a damn about higher-end plans and postpaid connections. Rs999 recharge still gives 60GB for 90 days (with free 15GB topup --depending on phone and Rs50x8 cashback) ONLY. The customers who have recharged with that plan are giving Rs333 per month, comparing Rs133 per month in case of Rs399 plan users. But Rs399 plan gives 1.5GB/ day for 84 days + Rs50x8 cashback vouchers + 10GB topup free. Now the Rs101 top-up automatically uses our existing Rs50 cashback voucher. So it is Rs51 for 6GB, as well. With such top-up facility, now there is simply NO NEED to go for Rs999 or above plans at all. Just do Rs399 recharge and use Rs51 (Rs101-Rs50 CB) top-up for 6GB -- when you need bulk data and you are good to go. Since Jio is NOT AT ALL thinking about the Rs333 ARPU users, now it is PROVED (although not surprising) that all Jio wants is to KILL competition and nothing else...
  8. The difference is, with HEALTHY competition, the quality of service increases. But in cut-throat DEADLY competition, only PRICE gets cheaper and quality degrades like anything. No network in India is good in all places, both for voice calls and data. Right now, it changes from street to street as well. In TN, Airtel's DC-HSPA rocks. But their 4G speed sux and in MP+CG, 4G rocks, 3G crawls. Voice quality of 2G sux in all circles, thanks to unlimited calls. Wrt BSNL, speed is good in two streets per city. If we are living in rest of the 990+ streets, then we are out of luck. Voice calls are horrible even in 3G, again thanks to unlimited calls. Jio has good speeds in MP, TN. But it crawls in Mah & AP. if you have 4G+ phone (with LTE - A support), then you are blessed, else cursed. Calls between Jio numbers are simply awesome, but between Jio and other networks calls are awful. It is NOT like, operators have not expanded their network coverage. They have (especially Jio and Airtel) improved coverage great (thanks again to competition). But the data speed and voice clarity is NOT upto the mark, due to too much race to cheap tariff.
  9. This is looking more like crushing the competition, than republic day gift for my eyes. Healthy competition is good for customers, but that is not the case now. Jio's plans are like dragging competitors to hell loss. Even now, I can't understand why Airtel is still triggering Jio by matching their plans. May be their idea is to kill idea? Idea CEO is almost crying for mercy showing white flag. One thing is for sure, expecting quality services during this blood bath is a crime now.
  10. Yes... Jio is making money in books only for now, I guess.. Rs154 ARPU from 16 crore customers?? I really doubt that... Or one reason, I can guess is the QUEUED recharges has brought the revenue to Jio. For eg: I have done recharges for 2 years and hence Jio has got few thousand rupees in last quarter from me. But the problem is "I will NOT recharge for 2 years", but Jio has to serve me for 2 years without getting new revenue from me. From comments around web, I can see that so many people have done advanced recharges and hence good revenue for Jio last qtr. But in coming years, we have to wait and see. The problem with such blood bath competition is, NO NETWORK will be in usable condition, till the end of tariff war in most places.
  11. Looks like, Jio is determined to kill the total competition... Whether this will be good or bad, only time will tell. Till then we have to digest the call drops, congested network, slow speeds, NIL voice clarity, even if we are ready to pay more for quality...
  12. Not only that. If you are browsing using 4G data and when an incoming call arrives, the network will switch to 3G and data will obviously used on 3G network as well and eats your main balance. This problem is somewhat solved with airtel VoLTE. But it's available in few streets of very few circles. To add insult to the injury, very very few phones support their VoLTE and that too is a hit or miss affair.
  13. This clears almost all the doubts. Thanks@LTE4G Sent from my Lenovo P2 using Tapatalk
  14. But the problem now is, there is NO such quality operator due to race for cheap tariff and UnLimited calls. Clarity of Voice calls in Airtel Network used to be great even in 2G network and HD calls on DC-HSPA network was as good as Jio to Jio HD calls during launch days. But now?? Forget call clarity, it is like a boon to complete a 3 minute voice call without interruptions / cracking sound / call drops, in any network --- all thanks to Unlimited calls. Two years back, I used to pay around Rs1900 for my single mobile connection and that too for LIMITED calls (10k minutes) + 8GB data. Now I am paying around the same amount for all of my 10+ corporate connections combined (Airtel). But the calling experience is THE WORST now, even though I am paying tiny fraction of that amount. The problem is, I have tried Vodafone / BSNL / Jio as well. Comparing them Airtel is little better OR I can say that LEAST WORSE operator is Airtel now. So where is the choice now?
  15. OMG, all hell broke now. This is what I have been fearing from the beginning. I thought Airtel and other avoid guys matching Jio by each tariff will trigger Jio's anger. It's like catching the tiger by it's tail. Even if they leave the tail now, the tiger will not leave them for sure. AVoId must accept the fact that, they can NEVER beat Jio in their own game (of tariff). Now Jio is fighting back more vigorously, which is no good for avoid as well as Jio. It may initially look good for consumers, but the bad news is speed of 4G will decrease further (already very slow now) and voice clarity will be a thing of past (which is my main worry). [mention=92121]LTE4g[/mention] for those who have already got Rs50x8 vouchers (I have got 16 vouchers in each number) can still get Rs50 discount from the already Rs50 less recharge value.
