What happens to my current unlimited plan in Airtel prepaid if I recharge again before the expiry date?

The 1.4 GB pack is valid till 6th sept. and I recharge with a 499 pack which is 2GB /day.

I will 3.4 GB per day till 6th september ??
or 2GB pack will be auto activated after 6th sept ??

some are saying my old plan will go kaput .

As per my knowledge, The higher pack(validity wise) becomes default and lower get void without any refund. This was said to me by local recharge shop owner.

looks like the 499 plan is in queue . After old plan expire it should activate from that day.

Dial *121*2#. There will be an “Upcoming Packs Info”. Maybe the newer pack will be listed there.

No . . Checked with ussd . Then simply drop the old plan validity and start new plan immediatly .

So it didn’t queue? Apparently it only happens if the recharge denominations are identical. See post by chingumboy https://www.desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/...

Call CCare they will confirm what happened to your pack..
The Airtel’s balance / validity / STV / recent deductions etc using ussd/app is not up-to-date some of this doesn’t even show up on app.

I recharged today for 448 pack and my expiry was in 3 days. After recharge it is now showing 85 days, which means 82 days have been added after the expiry of 3 days. So in airtel, I guess, it has now started to start the new pack after the expiry of old.
P.S. I have always maintained the same recharge pack of 448. So better to recharge with the same pack which you are using currently. Not sure if changing the pack will start immediately or get extended.

Nope and its waste to recharge twice because its not refundable.

you’ll be fine… your new recharge pack will start when your current pack ends.
I did the same mistake last night… so I checked my upcoming pack info, it says my new pack will start on Feb(when my current pack ends)
