    3G switching from a postpaid 2G connection is simple (Provided the current voice plan is > Plan225. Send an SMS to 53733 with the text “M3G” which automatically aligns your 3G plan to the existing Voice/2G plan. You will receive a message “.. your request for 3G conversion is accepted. You will be migrated to 3G plan within 24 hrs, if eligible. Pl wait for confirmation SMS-BSNLMOBILE”… wait for it and you are good to go!
