I have VI Card, which I need to keep active. I recharge with 49 every month. I can’t forego the number, so I need to do this. I don’t use that card even to call anyone. It is just the incoming.

1. Is there any better plan than 49?
2. I heard it’s better to Top up with 100 with 81 balance & then recharge with 49 using the main balance. How is this useful?

Yup, RC Rs.100 gives 28 days validity and Rs.81.75 TalkTime (Main Balance) and further Rs.46 will be auto deducted to extend validity of 28 days. No need to recharge RC49 if you maintain sufficient main balance for auto deduction (Rs.46).

Better to maintain this cycle (acquiring/accumulating main balance through RC100 and further using it for auto deduction of Rs.46 for another 28 days validity).

You may choose to recharge with RC100 only whenever you are in shortfall of auto deduction amount of Rs.46.

Correct me here if i am missing something.

Day 1 – Recharge with Rs 100. Get 28 days validity & 81 talk time.
Day 28- 46 will be auto-debited from the main balance. The remaining is 35 main balance.
Day 55 – Recharge again with Rs 100. Get 28 validity & now there won’t be any deduction of 46?

I think there is a grace period of 10 days in which incoming remains active so effectively you need to recharge after 38 days in 49 rs plan.

Yup, there won’t be auto deduction if you recharge RC100 which also gives 28 days validity. so better to maintain this cycle (acquiring/accumulating main balance through RC100 and further using it for auto deduction of Rs.46 for another 28 days validity).

You can always choose to disable auto-debit and later re-enable at your convenience. Like after expiry of the 7 days incoming-only period.

Gets added to core balance unlike the 49 pack which is lapsed after 28 days. Though according to some in case of Vi the secondary balance is carried over if a new Smart pack is activated anytime before current pack expiry.

Even i always go for 48 pack. but directly.
Since this is spare 📱which i use as internet backup ( personal hotspot). No other use of this phone apart from OTPs

And again i do 48 recharge on last day so that data gets carried fwd. 😆

Yeah. But it’s become a minor headache as I have accumulated tens of gigabytes in several nos. and need to keep recharging to prevent it from lapsing.

Hmmn. but not for me bro.
I use main📱 only as internet at home 🏠 by tethering.
No dedicated internet connection.
So this backup is very handy as i end up using 1-5GB of backup vi connection every month depending on the situation 🥳

Yup, it’s better when you need internet pack (regular use / backup)
