Vodafone has just launched an unlimited free incoming pack for its customers with a validity of 7 days in Mumbai. The pack has been priced at Rs 38 and will allow you to get unlimited calls for free on your Vodafone connection while roaming. It also brings with it a reduction in the outgoing rates of roaming. Instead of the Rs 1.5/minute, you’ll have to pay 1.5 paisa/second for outgoing calls (both local and national).
Outgoing local SMS will be charged at Re 1 and outgoing national SMS will be charged at Re 1.5. The SMS packs become void in case of roaming for the time period you are out of your circle. The Roaming rates for internet however remain the same as your home rates even while roaming.
Vodafone already has a Rs 77 pack which offers the same benefits for a period of 30 days. It makes a bit more sense if you are going to be travelling for a longer period or on and off outside the circle within a month. Nevertheless, if you are going out for less than a week and don’t want to have a large roaming bill, we believe the Rs 38 pack will make a lot of sense for you.
