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 🙁

Went to two stores, one at south extension and another one at Green park. Executives told that 4G sim is available for postpaid customers only and only way to get 4G sim is to migrate from prepaid to post-paid.

January 22, 2016 12:29 am 12:29 AM

send “GO4G” to 199 if u haven’t done it already and show them the reply u get. Then they will have no excuse left for not giving prepaid customers 4G sims. I mean why would they give 1 gb free data to prepaid customers if they don’t have 4G sims available for them.

Would Vodafone 4G services scheduled to launch in Delhi be compatible with genuine Apple reseller purchased iPhone 5/5S, 6/6+? There are certain iPhone 5S models as well as 6 and 6 + were incompatible with Airtel 4G services.

January 22, 2016 8:27 am 8:27 AM

you wont face any problem if your iphone 6 model no. is A1586 … it will work on almost all the frequencies of 3g and 4g … exceptions are thr like verizon and china mobile I guess

First improve your services and network.

January 21, 2016 3:39 pm 3:39 PM

Same offer in Kolkata also. Customer need 4G sim & 4G handset. But, I think sms keyword might be “VODA4G” instead of “GO4G”. bcz, I have also send VODA4G to 199 to avail Free 1GB 4G data.
