If you’re connected to Wi-Fi then you'll not be using the 4G connection anyway. 4G plans can cost more than 3G plans.

You can get a minutes, texts and data plan either on its own from a choice of network, connectivity or as part of a new handset package on a Postpaid contract. The chances are you already own a mobile and you already have a plan.
What is Prepaid plan?
As the name suggests Prepaid plan is a type of mobile plan that doesn't ties you with network for X number of months neither includes a phone, but does gives you a SIM and a monthly allowance of minutes, texts and data.
SIM card is a microchip almost same size of a postage stamp which holds all of mobile phone's configuration information, for example the mobile phone number and call plan. Without a SIM card, a mobile phone will not work. SIM stands for Subscriber Identity Module.
When a SIM card is activated, it is permanently locked to the particular network. But its not locked to a particular phone. This means you can easily change mobile phone handsets but keep your phone number. Your friend’s phone numbers and any saved messages or photos will remain as well.
I have found a good Prepaid deal with my existing network. What happens now?
So you’ve chosen the Prepaid deal you want and you’re certain are good to go then fill in a small form and we will take it further from there.
You’ll then get your new Prepaid SIM with new number with 1-3 days once your order is processed. It’s that simple.
I want a Prepaid deal with another network. What do I do?
The very first step is to check that you’re free to switch. The best way to do this is to ring your network or make sure you have been with your current network for atleast 90 days.
Once you’ve established that you are, pick a Prepaid only deal and network that suits you using the Telecoms Supermarket comparison filters and sign up for it. Your new SIM card should arrive within 1-3 days.
In the meantime, you need to get your UPC using Mobile number portability process.
If you want to keep your number, make sure you also ask your current network for a UPC code (Unique Porting Code) when you notify them you’d like to leave. We’ll look at how you use your UPC code more closely in the section below.
What is MNP?
If you want to keep your number when you change networks, you'll need to initiate MNP for a UPC code from your current provider.
MNP stands for Mobile number portability.
To get your UPC, you simply need to send a SMS from the mobile number you want to port to the number 1900 with text message starting "PORT" followed by a space, followed by your 10 digit mobile phone number. E.g. "PORT 01234567890"
You will automatically receive a Unique Porting Code (UPC) from your existing service provider.
A small charge may apply for generating your UPN. They may charge maximum amount of Rs. 19.
To begin the number transfer you need to ring or visit the network showroom you're joining and supply them with your UPN code. You must do this within 30 days of the UPN code being issued.
This applies for all cases as below:
Transferring from Prepaid to Postpaid (Different network)
Transferring from Postpaid to Prepaid (Different network)
Transferring from one circle to another circle
What do I do with my old SIM?
Are you worried that your SIM and the contacts, text messages and other personal information stored on it may fall into the wrong hands? Then you'll need to dispose of it carefully.
Just as you would with an old credit card, the safest thing to do is take the SIM and use scissors to cut it up.
While you're cutting the SIM, ensure that you damage the gold foil so you make absolutely certain there's no way anyone can retrieve your personal information.
You're then free to throw the old SIM away.
Will there be a CIBIL check? What happens if I don’t have Aadhaar card?
Doesn’t matter if you take up Prepaid or Postpaid connection, one have to provide a KYC (Know your customer) proof with Aadhaar card. It is mandatory to furnish a copy of your aadhaar card. There may be a CIBIL check if you want to take up a SIM with iPhone (Subject to Airtel offer).
The only major difference between Postpaid and Prepaid is that you'll have to remember to recharge your Prepaid connection to ensure you've got credit.
MicroSIM? NanoSIM? How can I be sure I'm getting the right SIM for my phone?
Different phones use different SIM’s. Older phones use Micro SIM, while newer models use Nano SIM.
The only sure way to tell them apart is size.
A microSIM measures around 0.6” long by 0.5” wide.
A NanoSIM is a little bit smaller at 0.5” long by 0.3” wide.
The good news is that networks now offer what are called Combi SIMs and Multi SIMs too.
Multi SIMs are three-in-one SIMs that will fit your phone whether you need a standard SIM, Micro SIM or Nano SIM. Multi SIMs now come as standard with most networks.
Will I lose service if I switch to a Prepaid plan with another network?
Changing network process has been designed to keep the time you're without a service down to a minimum.
Even after you've given the network you're joining your UPN code (see above for a more detailed explanation of UPN codes), so you'll still be able to take calls and receive texts during this time.
Your service goes down for a very short period when transfer to your new network happens.
To check if the network transfer has is completed, simply insert your new SIM in the phone and restart it. If you're got a service, you're good to go.
Which networks offer Prepaid deals?
Prepaid deals are available from all the major mobile phone networks including:
What is Postpaid Connection?
Postpaid connection is also known as contract connection. As the name suggests you don’t have to worry about recharging your SIM as the outgoing stops once you have consumed all the credit.
