  • kingshuk

    any idea how to activate those numbers, i mean two local and one std bsnl number for reduced call rate under roam free plan?

    • http://www.telecomGyaan.com Tahera Tahir

      You have to send all the 3 numbers to a 53733 like this
      FFE

      But i still would request you to confirm from the customer care….
      Sending the message to 53733 cost Rs. 5 initially… and for changing any number it cost Rs. 10….
      So it is always better to confirm from the CC first…..
