I’ve shifted all mine and my household connections to JIO about last 2 years. However, now planning to shift all connections back to Airtel / Vod-Idea.

Reason: JIO is not disconnecting inactive SIM cards in my name which I had taken during the free period. Though I’ve thrown these SIMs away, JIO themselves recharge these numbers once in a while and show that these are active. I’ve raised requests for cancellation since early 2017, most recent being a week before, and they are not willing to disconnect these numbers. (I’ve told them either they keep my inactive numbers in my name, or my active numbers. They seem to be interested more in inactive numbers).

Question: Which amongst Airtel / Vod-Idea is better nowadays. Do one / both of them also provide advance recharge options like JIO? What about roaming – Is all roaming including SMS free in either / both? And also ISD tariff – does Airtel / Vod-Idea has flat ISD tariffs/packs that work during roaming as well? (In JIO all calls/sms are free while roaming, and ISD tariff/packs work same during roaming).

Airtel speed is better than jio and idea. If u recharge monthly and three month pack then it is best.

Lucky you. My uncharged and unused Jio sim was disconnected few months back.
Neither Airtel nor iFone are as good as Jio in most places. So, check in your area and decide.

Speed depends on location.

Does Airtel has advance recharge option? Like stacking up multiple recharge packs?
And what about roaming plans and tariffs?

Like said above, it entirely depends on your location. In my location for voice call consistency it goes like this-

Vodafone >> Jio >>>> airtel

For data speed-

Jio >> Vodafone >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> airtel

And no, no damned Advanced recharge options in Vodafone at least. No idea about roaming.

Location- Outskirts of Calcutta.

Their app(voda and idea both) doesn’t have this option.

Don’t know about dialing with keypad to activate

Anyone from Airtel? Does Airtel has option to recharge from main balance?

Also, if anyone knows about roaming plans/tariffs for Airtel/Idea, please tell the details.

Not available for Airtel too. I think every SIM cards are now all India roaming, so no extra charges. Don’t know about international roaming.

Same here.

We had 4-5 extra Jio numbers during the free period. They all got deactivated because we didn’t recharge.

You should port in your inactive numbers to VIL (aka Vodafone Idea Ltd) as they are the ones who disconnect numbers quickly if not used within 90 days for continuous period. smileRecently one of my Idea no. which I needed was disconnected even after recharge as it was not used for 30 days (no network, sim was out). Also they are getting rid of non-active customers more quickly than others as merger conditions telling upon them. I get rid of multiple sim myself. Had 5. Now 2 only. Jio+BSNL- Life Jinga Bala. Airtel/Idea/Voda sim closed.

Think again! AVOID will take you for a ride with all dirty tricks like deductions/activation etc.
They deliberately do not want users to Q up recharges.
As long as call and data connectivity is good with Jio, stick to Jio as other issues are manageable.

National roaming priority now.

What about SMS charges and ISD tariff while roaming in Voda/Airtel.
(Jio has zero sms chargers, and ISD tariff same from any place in India).

International roaming a bonus. But not very much after.

Call and data connectivity are good.

However, I now have 5 JIO sims in my name. 2 active and ported from other networks.
3 non-active numbers which they are unwilling to disconnect for the past 2+ years. I don’t think it is good to have so many numbers in your name. I simply want to get rid of these.

Jio is best if you have network, but how many places have proper network for jio?. I am from Bangalore and I did’t find proper network at my home, I requested them several times to install 1 small antenna and we are ready to shift all existing connections to their network, but why do they care as they are more comfortable than government employees.

In my place, there is proper network for jio, but Vodafone doesn’t have network at my home.

If you know that numbers are in your name and you obviously what’s details you provided then simply call Jio care or chat with them via Myjio app and report those sim as lost/stolen. The agent will ask some basic details of the I’d you submitted while activation of the sim. Once correct details provide. They will block it immediately and then after some time it will be deactivated and will rolled out again this new customer.

The opposite happened in my building. joy They were ready to install a mini booster tower and ready ready to pay as well for it. Bit my friend got new flat at better price so we shifted there which a decent network of Jio.

It’s not like that.. they improve even if you don’t get response to ur request.

I once put a request for less speed than a 2G connection, they were actually able to locate me and said it will take time to install network in my area. Some months later I got some celebration pack… so I hesitatingly tried and I was getting good speeds; from then I started recharging the Jio connection.

So, I should tell u to try checking in some 1-2 months.. they will work, but just that it takes time (sometimes 6-9 months also).

That’s funny because they gave me a hard time with having many numbers in your name even though I had none..

maybe he meant I could not get any new numbers if I already had them in my name. I was kind of flabbergast since I did not understand why it would matter to them as you have to pay for each connection.. And what about some people who have workers and who are all given phones to use as a business.. After a lot of talk he did give me a new SIM and account with the warning that the new SIM might get blocked if they did not approve it and I might lose the money I paid for the recharge. I still did not understand it all.. I don’t really speak the language..

Do you want me to post all the mails to them and their replies, its going on for more than an year. That a…oles does’t require customer satisfaction. I stopped recharging dongle number and they used to send messages to recharge on alternate contact number in local language which I don’t understand clearly.
