Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea all don’t offer SMS benefits to their users with low-end prepaid plans. So to port out or use the SMS service for any other thing, the telcos are pushing users to recharge with a certain minimum amount plan that offers SMS benefits so that they can earn more. Today, we will be looking at those starting plans from the telcos which offer SMS benefits. Note that these aren’t the ‘entry level’ plans but the ‘entry-level SMS benefits’ plans. Let’s see what each operator has got in store for the users.

There is a subscription offered to the customers for Jio applications which includes JioCinema, JioTV, JioSecurity, JioNews, and JioCloud. This is the ‘unlimited daily data plan’.
