Airtel and Reliance Jio's tariff war is getting more and more interesting. Airtel is not leaving any stone unturned to counter RJio's tsunami by offering specially customized plans and packs since the last two months.
As we are all aware that Reliance Jio's Welcome Offer is valid until December 31, 2016, post this period, the users have to do STV recharge of minimum Rs. 149 to continue having unlimited free calls.
Recently, Airtel has come up with a similar STV worth Rs. 148 to tackle RJio's 'free voice calls' plan. This new pack offers unlimited Internet-based voice calling tentatively for 1 month. Here's how a prepaid Airtel customer can avail this plan.
Step 1. Dial A USSD Code
Firstly, you have to dial USSD Code *121*1# from your Airtel prepaid number.
Step 2. Press 1
Once you get to see the pack details on a pop-up message, press 1 to confirm the pack.
Step 3. Activate the Pack
Now you'll be asked to activate the pack on your Airtel prepaid number. Press 1 and you'll get a message for the telecom operator showing the deduction of the STV amount from your main balance.
