My use is only calls (and that too few calls). No internet, no message, etc.

Till now, I had about 500 balance which I have not exhausted. I used to just keep on extending validity by doing a 49 special recharge.

But since the main balance itself is becoming 0, what cheap plan do you recommend considering my usage is only calls?

The usual 399/month for internet + free calls + SMS will be too costly I think.

379 Plan is best. It’s for 84 days with unlimited calling.

I hope you’re having Rs.500 balance as secondary balance which cannot be carry forwarded without making Rs.49 recharge. There is no other go.

If one wants only data 💻 go for Rs.48 3GB data for 28 days. Validity extends
If one wants only talk time 📞 , I think Rs.49 plan remains best bet

Since my needs are basic data and little tt, i go for 48 plan and do Rs.10 free recharge (tt has unltd validity) whenever Mobiquick or Freecharge roll out their mega magnanimous offers 😛

49 one doesn’t give 38 main balance anymore , it’s some promo balance or whatever it is called
And this 38 can’t be used for sending SMS and calls
So we paying 49 just to keep SIM active
600/year to keep SIM active and receive calls rage

What speed are you getting for prepaid plans ? is it worth taking ?. I am having airtel, in my area it is bad. want to go for better alternative. VI’s 4GB per day for 84 days prepaid plan looks interesting. I want to know if the data connectivity is stable. Any reviews ?

OP
Since your call requirements are minimum, keep using 49 plan and recharge main talktime with Freecharge and other offers. The long term survival of Voda is still doubtful. So the main balance you are trying to save may become zero anyway.
