I had active plan in my docomo sim, after logging in to airtel app it shows no active plan and i just got charged for a call.
And i am unable to use any ussd code except *111# for checking my balance

Then you’re still in docomo.. conversion not started for your number.

Can you please tell me if you are able to dial *141# and the option to transfer balance is showing for you or not?

I also have 2 months 249 rs active plan but not showing in Airtel app.
you should be able to see you balance on both codes.
For me it’s showing balance with active plan on both ussd codes…

I think airtel stopped balance transfer facility recently. So no use in dialing that ! I tried dialling *141# and it showing welcome to airtel and talktime loan option only available.

Contact cc,
Ideally your docomo active plan and airtel ussd code both should work.

I upgraded my 2 docomo sim to airtel yesterday. It took around 2-3 hrs for new 4g sim to activate. Airtel took Rs25 for each sim. Store person said its airtel franchise shop and not airtel store so they charge Rs25 for sim swap service from me. Upgrade your old docomo 3g sim and enjoy 4g speed. All balance of docomo is carried forward and my 3g data balance of docomo is converted into 4g data of airtel 😂

Im sure that not only for Airtel.. for all network the plan is same. For 35 rs recharge we will get 26 rs as talktime in main balance with unlimited validity and it can be used for service recharge plans also (23/24). But you will not able to use it when your outgoing facility stops and becomes usable once your service validity resumed.

flushed looks weird ! Im not aware of it.. i will do 35 or 23 in docomo, but recently i have not done 35. If they announce it as spl balance, then no use in staying with airtel !

Just today i have upgraded my docomo sim to airtel to experience 4g.

So From Where You Upgraded The Sim ?
Becuz In My Case When I Went To Upgrade Docomo,They Denied.
Then I Went To Airtel Store, They Directly Said Me To Port To Airtel And Get 4G, That Time I Had Approx 1K Balance. So I Didn’t Ported.

Visit other airtel store and just say you want 4g upgrade sim (as if you’re having only 2g Airtel sim with you) They will provide you new sim (may/may not charge upto 25 rs) by getting your mobile number. (say any known friends airtel number or your docomo number itself)
After getting sim a small sms format is there to switch. That you can do it by yourself.

today I went to authorized airtel store and asked them to upgrade my sim to 4g.
They sent some message from my existing sim and provided new 4g sim.
No charges paid for this !

All Docomo Sims have been already converted as Airtel long back.. does your sim still shows network signal as docomo ?
