4G vodafone


Went to 2 different store for 4G SIM card and finally Vodafone issued 4G sim yesterday but after 24 hours of struggle number was not activated. On top of this they were totally clueless about procedures. After many calls to customer care, they finally told that 4G sim couldn’t be activated and I have to visit Vodafone store for new 3G sim!!!

So back on old 3G sim 🙁
