So it’s bad idea to continue as a postpaid customer! Better port to Airtel/Jio or be a prepaid customer.

Where are these offers shown on idea,.. except on TT, I see no where.

Offer to single user don’t make pan India offer. Idea don’t have asspower to drive it’s users with offers mentioned. It’s limited user base offer.

You have to run behind the idea executives if you want to avail of such offers. It’s available if you go to 4-5 idea stores in a single day. 🙂

Hi Jio lover, you can get this offer in mumbai circle. I can give you the number to avail 299 offer in mumbai for new connection or MNP but I don’t want to put it on a public domain. Suggest some way and I’ll put you in touch if possible.
In MPCG this comes as 349 plan + 75 Rs bill discount. Please note 349 plan includes 3000 SMS per month while 299 has no free SMS.

It’s 275 for me. Idea can go to any extent, you can coerce then to double the data benefits too. They’re bleeding like crazy and I am fairly certain I am right in calling Idea the RCOM 2.0

P. S. airtel never gives discount or raises benefits no matter how hard you bargain. Vodafone will raise benefits but not reduce price. Idea and Rcom will do both if you are convincing enough. My experience as CUG handler.

No, I can get it through the Idea CUG executive who comes here to give us the CUG plans. But it’s not limited to CUG customers, if you know the right executives you can get all these benefits in a personal/retail plan.
