Vodafone recharge with 'unlimited calling'

And now, the company has released a new plan offering customers 300GB data and unlimited STD and local calls free for 360 days at a price of 3,999.

First, Vodafone's recharge for Rs 509 is available for all prepaid users.

The sudden decision by Anil Ambani's R Com had seen subscribers rushing to port their existing numbers with other telecom operators.

Idea and Vodafone's Indian unit are now merging in a move that will see them overtake Airtel as India's largest telecoms operator with more than 400 million subscribers.

Any user who purchases any of Oppo's F3, F3 Plus and F1 Plus smartphones, will get 10GB additional 4G data on every recharge of Rs 309 or above. This plan too offers unlimited local and national calls on any number and unlimited national roaming. That means, customers get 49 GB for a period of 49 days with a high speed data limit of 1 GB per day.

The first and the second offers are limited to a maximum of 10 and 6 recharges respectively.

The Rs. 509 Vodafone pack comes with 1GB data per day, bundled local and STD calls, free roaming outgoing calls, and 100 SMSes per day for 84 days.

Under the plans, Airtel customers will be able to carry forward up to 200 GB of their unused data to next billing cycle and check its status on MyAirtel app. The brand's new plans are available in two denominations - Rs 458 and Rs 509.

Vodafone's Rs. 458 plan has validity of 70 days, and provides customers with 1GB data per day, 100 SMSes, free roaming calls, and bundled calls. Along with this, Vodafone has also launched an FRC 177 plan, which offers 28GB data for 28 days with unlimited calling. Vodafone's plan also includes free subscription of Vodafone Play. Jio's Rs 509 plan has 2 GB per day. The plan has a daily FUP of 1GB.
