If you are an Indian Telecom user (Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Tata Indicom, Docomo, Reliance etc.), Then you are in luck for some free offers. With the launch of MNP – Mobile Number portability, these telecom companies are doing everything to retain their customer base.
I thought of checking with one of the service provider(Airtel) , if I want to switch around to other company.
And it came as no surprise, upon asking them to switch to other operator, Airtel gave me a “Airtel Surprise Offer”. They offered me 10p/minute for one month!
To send the magic SMS
Send “PORT <your-mobile-number>” TO 1900
and in sometime you will get a SMS with some transfer code(ignore it, if you are fine with your provider).
I researched a little bit and found that your Airtel Surprise can be free talktime, special call rates, free sms etc.
I am not too sure about other operators but if you also got such offer on Vodafone, Idea, Tata Docomo etc. Tell Us in comments below.
