In what seems to be a strategic partnership, India’s 4th largest operator by subscriber base has tied up with e-commerce giant PayTM to bundle a free 4G blank sim for its existing CDMA subscribers who buy a new 4G capable handset on PayTM as a part of the CDMA to 4G upgrade programme started by Rcom.
PayTM is offering a 5% cash back to PayTM wallet on the order of select 4G handsets with the maximum cashback of Rs.5999 and the offer is available for only one order per user. PayTM will also bundle a free 4G blank sim for users who use the promo code UPGRADE4G, The sim will be delivered within 7 days of placing the order and the sim is only usable by existing CDMA subscribers upgrading to Reliance 4G.
Existing Rcom CDMA subscribers who wish to upgrade to 4G simply need to call on 1299 and follow the voice instructions and press 1 to register their number for the 4G upgrade.
Following this they simply need to send an SMS from their active CDMA number with the text 4G ‘space’ 19 digit number printed on the back of the blank 4G sim and within 2 hours the CDMA number will be converted to 4G with all balance talktime carried forward. Also note that this sim migration offer is valid only till 15th May 2016.
