Airtel Prepaid Recharge of Rs 597 Ships 10GB Data, Unlimited Calling and 168 Days Validity for Feature Phone Users

Bharti Airtel is shipping a unique offer for new feature phone users, providing them data, unlimited calling and SMS for 168 days straight

  • The feature phone recharge of Rs 597 offers 10GB data for the entire validity period
  • For 4G phones and an IMEI older than 30 days, the plan offers lower validity

In recent days, we have seen Bharti Airtel do a significant change to its postpaid plans. The Sunil Bharti Mittal led telecom operator has also reintroduced its Airtel Thanks programme to inspire customer loyalty and to extend exclusive benefits to its customers. However, all of these benefits are mostly aimed at smartphone users on the 4G network of Airtel. A lot of people might argue that there are no offers for feature phone users from the telco apart from a few voice-based offerings that Airtel ships, but, that’s simply not the case as Airtel is providing the Mera Naya Feature Phone recharge of Rs 597 with some impressive benefits. Check all the details of this offer here.

Airtel Mera Naya Feature Phone Rs 597 Recharge Details

This new recharge is unique for the feature phone users as customers recharging their Airtel number with this pack for a new feature phone will get additional benefits. After 30 days of your new phone, the benefits will change slightly depending on your circle. In the Mera Naya Feature Phone recharge, Airtel is offering Unlimited Local, STD Mobile Calls along with 10GB data for 168 days. The telco is also offering 300 SMS per 28 days renewed every 28 days until the pack expires. What’s crucial to note is that the 10GB data will only work on non-4G handsets.

In case you are using a 4G or a non 4G device and your IMEI has been 30 days or older then in the Bihar, West Bengal, Orissa, UP-east, UP-west, Gujrat, Maharashtra (excluding Mumbai), Haryana, Madhya Pradesh circles you will enjoy unlimited local and STD calls with 10GB data for 140 days instead of 168 days. The subscribers will also get 300SMS which will be renewed every 28 days.

Lastly, for all other circles, and all other handsets, the benefits of 10GB data, unlimited calls and 300SMS will remain the same, but the validity of the plan will be reduced to 112 days. However, Airtel has also noted that the maximum validity that can be accumulated by the customer is limited to 180 days only. Do make a note that Airtel also has a similar plan for 4G smartphone users as well.

Vodafone idea results announced. Again 4900 core of loss. In three months vil has lost 15000 crore as losses. This way it is not sustainable. Main reason for such losses is massive customer loss and low tariffs due to Jio. Customer loss can only be stopped if network is fully merged and customer starts getting good speeds and no call drops. We are still 4 qtrw away before merged network can be fully realised and customer exodus stops, by then massive no. Of customer would have left vil and joined competition making it difficult for vil to recover losses further.… Read more »

They have replaced 299 or 399 postpaid plans with 249 prepaid plan and people are opting for it.


There is no 249 plan now. There is 349 plan in some regions which is also on the verge of phasing out… 399 plan is still available but for dongle now and offers 5gb data now. Check your facts now…

Read again what I have said. You need to reply where you have knowledge. If you still don’t get it,I don’t know what to say. I am talking these after visiting more than 15 galleries in Mumbai. So no need to check facts.

192,000 2G sites and around 372,000 broadband (3G+4G) sites across 22 circles.

Recent data after nine circles integration.


So indirectly they are going to show off 168 days validity confusing customers who are not up-to-date with these often changing offers or hidden condition,
While in reality they get only 140 days validity.
New concept of ‘cheating legally’ as complaint of misunderstanding can’t be expressed as cheating.
