Idea Cellular has withdrawn three of its most popular postpaid combo plans of Rs. 899, Rs.1299, and Rs.1599. The combo plans offered bundled benefits of voice calls (local/STD) to any network, local and National SMSes, and 3G data usage.
Postpaid combo plan Rs.899 offered 4,000 Local/STD calls to any network, 100 national roaming mobile minutes (incoming and outgoing) and 450 SMSes. While combo plan Rs.1299 offered 4,000 local/STD + 1,000 roaming mobile mins + 450 local/national SMSes and 5 GB of 3G data. The the third plan which costs Rs.1599/month offered 10,000 local + STD + national roaming mobile minutes and 1,000 local + national SMSes, and 8 GB 3G data usage.
The postpaid combo plans were introduced by the operator three years back to take on Reliance Communications and Tata Docomo who offered similar high-end postpaid combo plans.
With the introduction of more flexible easy share postpaid plans and users moving towards more data-centric plans, the combo plans offering have become less attractive.
