Exclusive: Airtel to Launch 4G ready Smart Sim in Kerala Circle

Airtel is buckling up for the next gen with its Smartphone centric products, Airtel had recently started offering Smart sim in Andhra Pradesh circle. This Sim card is essentially a Nano Sim from Airtel along with adapters that will ensure that it can be used as Micro Sim/Nano Sim as well as a regular SIM card.

First 4G Ready Airtel Smart SIM

Airtel Smart Sim means no more hopping to your nearby Mobile shops and getting the normal sim cut into smaller ones and the responsibility to retain the carcass. Moreover the petty shops charged anything between Rs50-Rs100 and the fitting of the Sim depended on the mood of the shopkeeper. I myself had a horrid experience when my Sim card was cut wrongly and I had to go all the way to service center to get a new one.

The Adapters sold as extra accessories cost Rs 100. Airtel is offering the Smart Sim at Rs25 which is a pittance! Another good bit is that this sim can be popped into your Data card and any other devices like iPad supporting Sim card. This SIM card comes with a new number .

This time around Airtel users in Kerala can lay their hands on the Smart Sim package as it will soon be introduced in Kerala circle. The pro smartphone move from Airtel will surely reap huge benefits in the coming future as a major chunk of consumers already own smartphones or are on the verge of buying one.

    When I wanted to get my Airtel Sim, to be cut into Nano, the local shop keeper offered for Rs.50/- and told me it would be risky. I myself carefully cut the sim, into Nano and it is working fine with my Iphone 5. When I placed the same sim, into ordinary mobile, carefully, so that the black lines touch the sim part, it is working fine. I have experimented it, so that, in case, it is damaged, I would get a new one replaced from the Local Airtel Store by paying the replacement charges. I live in A.P

    It is really innovative
    Mine vodafone sim is a micro sim a small cut is given for making it a mini sim but there is no provision for nano sim
    This idea is great but it should fit correctly in the adapter because once i had put my mini sim in adapter and inserted in Nokia X6 which had a tray which went inside but while removing the adapter got trapped inside and the tray got blocked due to which i had to go to service center

    When did BSNL implement this kind of cards in Kerala?

    • Akhil Mohan - Kochi August 18, 2014 8:47 pm

      Are you kidding man. They would at best recommend you to cut the sim in any shop, if at all they have heard of it.

        My local BSNL exchange gives BSNL mini,micro,nano sim’s according to customer’s demand,you only need a copy of your identity card.i think it is available through out all the exchanges in India.

          Yes but that takes approx some hours to activate the new SIM.

        • Darshan August 19, 2014 1:50 am

          @apple lover Yeah they activated my nano sim in a hour…actually i had my identy proofs but to check wheather they can replace and give me new sim by submitting old sim i said i am living very far from the city and i dont have any documents but have the old sim
          So they said give me application written in which i wrote abt the problem they took my sign then they checked my old sim and wrote the no of sim and gave me new nano sim @59rs
          So if you dont have documents and still want to replace the sim BSNL allows you to do this
