As per recent customer care feedback, they have blocked all USSD codes for self recharging temporarily because of new plan changes.
So unable to recharge using main balance temporarily.. I’ve not tried recharging from online website/App.

As per @mastervijay i also got the same reply when called to CC.
But can’t trust them blindly without doing my own effort. As they always seems to have very very less info than us. As they always provide me the info that i already know. smile

Unable to recharge using main balance. Customer care says recharge again. Useless. They need to be taught a lesson for looting.

So our DD friend @Vulcan took all the efforts and contacted Vodafone directly for a correct answer regarding the service validity and here’s the reply he received. If you don’t have enough time to read all this then scroll down to below at the end there’s a short conclusion of what they said.

All credit goes to @vulcan and I think you all should also reward him for all his efforts.

You know how to reward someone in DD don’t you? wink

So Here’s the written transcript or e-mail thread

Question :-

Dear Vodafone Representative,
I have been curious about how to extend the validity of my Vodafone no. I tried to look for a min recharge amount required to keep my account active or extend the validity of the same. Below are my questions regarding the validity extension of my Vodafone no

Q1. Can SMS pack Z26 extend validity by 28 days too for my inactive Vodafone no?

Q2. Is there any below 49 which can extend validity by 28 days?

Q3. what is the grace period for no to be deactivated?

Q4. what are charges made by you on inactive no having main balance?

Reply by Vodafone :-

We appreciate you reaching out to us my name is censored by me and I will be assisting you today regarding service validity towards your Vodafone number

I sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused to you.

With reference to your email, I would like to inform you that SMS pack validity is limited for that SMS pack only.

Further, I would like to inform you that recharges has been upgraded from 03/12/2019 so kindly please check minimum recharge offers available for your number from My Vodafone App.

Regarding service validity (grace period) -

With regards to your concern I hereby inform you that, once your service validity date expire services of your number will be barred.
Post services expiry you have to recharge your number to extend service validity.

While post expiry of service validity if any Talk time balance remains it will be continues with your next recharge in addition with that recharge benefits.

Do Please note below points:

• If you do not recharge after service validity expiry, number moved to G1- This is a 7 day period after service validity expiry, wherein customers can only receive incoming (e.g. calls/SMS) but cannot use their mobile for outgoing usage (e.g. calls/data/SMS). Customers can recharge in this period with a service validity product to move to ‘Active state’.

• If you do not recharge in G1, number moved to G2- This is a 90 day period after G1, wherein customers will not be able to use incoming (except incoming SMS) along with outgoing services (Calls/data/SMS/VAS) etc. 1. If you recharge in this period with a service validity product to move to ‘Active state’

2. If you do not recharge during this period, the system will check Rs.20/- talk time in the account – If talk time of Rs.20/- is available Rs.20/ will be deducted from the Talk time and you will continue to be in G2 for 30 days. – If talk time of Rs.20/- is not available -The number will be permanently deactivated.

Further, I regret to inform you that you need to recharge your number with validity recharge to increase service validity. Regarding Auto deduction from core balance —I would like to inform you that auto deduction of Rs.24/- is a service introduced for all prepaid customer to avoid barring of their Vodafone services after validity expiry.
i.e. If your service validity is going expire and you have balance greater than or equals to Rs.24/- you will allowed for 3 days extended validity and meanwhile you will be receiving SMS regarding auto debit of Rs.24/- deduction to extend service validity, also you will be also informed about the process to stop auto deduction via same SMS. If you failed to make recharge within 3 days after recharge expiry date. On expiry of extended validity, balance of Rs.24/- will get deducted from your Vodafone account and validity will get extended up to 14 days.

Thanks

Conclusion

✔️If you do not recharge then ₹24 will be deducted every 14 days just to keep incoming active.

✔️If no balance is there then within 90 days number will be disconnected

✔️ No other packs like sms pack will extend validity

✔️ ₹625+ per year just to keep sim active as per this

Anways, Vodafone CC forget to tell that you can move your no. to BSNL if you dont want to pay 625. smile

To keep no. active you need to recharge with 49 in 28+7+90 days i.e 125 days.

As The Per Post By @Gaurav_G , Airtel Still Seems Better With 23 Service Validity Pack And 28 Days.
While We Have Option Of BSNL If One Need To Just Keep Sim Active For Incoming SMS/Calls.
Once Balance Is Zero I Will Port To Bsnl If No Change In Voda Current Plans. And Above They Have Stopped Main Balance Recharge. I Feel Completely Blocked By Such Cheap Tricks Of Voda (May Be Same For Idea)

Will They Reduce Price After Like 3-6 Months ?
