More details about Airtel offer for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
You pay an initial down payment + monthly postpaid plan which covers the EMI amount too + closing amount or upgrade option.
1. Initial amount varies by the device you choose. Refer the pic below for more details.
2. All monthly plans include unlimited SMS and calls. Then 5GB/10GB/15GB data for Rs. 1999/Rs. 2499/Rs. 2999 plans respectively. This price includes your monthly EMI for the device too. This goes on for a period of 12 months.
3. Closing amount. After 12 months you have option to just return your device back to Airtel, pay down payment again and get the next year iPhone (or) pay the closing/balloon balance and retain the device.
My say: If you are a heavy user with mobile bill running at around Rs. 1000 per month this will be a really attractive option. 5GB data + unlimited SMS/calls will do for most people. Also, the articles online claim that we get 10gb per month bonus data too making the basic plan provide 15gb data per month.
