RCom confirms iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C 2-year contract plan, promises true unlimited usage


RCom has confirmed last night’s news about selling the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S on a 2-year contract in India. Users will be able to pick up the 16GB variants of the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S without any downpayment on a Rs 2,599 and Rs 2,999 monthly plan with a 2-year commitment. Users will have to pay a downpayment of Rs 11,600 for the iPhone 5C 32GB variant, Rs 10,992 for iPhone 5S 32GB and Rs 19,992 for iPhone 5S 64GB variants.

The biggest deal, however, is that RCom is promising true unlimited usage including voice calls across the country across all carriers and unlimited 3G data with no FUP caps. “Anything that you can do with the new iPhones in India, it will be included in the plan,” an RCom spokesperson told BGR India. Essentially RCom is suggesting that unless a user makes international calls or goes roaming internationally, there will be no extra charges levied.

RCom has tied up with leading credit card issuers who will automatically credit the monthly payment from the user’s credit card account. This makes it easier for RCom to ensure it does not lose revenue even if the subscriber unlocks the iPhone and uses it on a different carrier.

    This deal, with unlimited everything can be a game changer, for both the device (iPhone) and the network(RCom) in India.

    Wow, this is great. Not a fan of the iPhone (I like the iPad, since iOS has no match on tablet IMo), but since I write for tech websites, I think I’ll actually get me one of these. If only Reliance had 3G in Pune though, without 3G it might not be that useful.

    Game Changer?? Yes!! Now call and data and EMI at 2.5K is really good.

    What are the restrictions for 3G data ? Unlimited ? i don’t think so!

  • saptarshi

    I believe the deal is meant for credit card holders hence a million customers lost already , cheers !

    • techgoggles

      Millions??? That is a stupid troll comment!

    The fact that they do not have 3G in many circles is a big bummer

  • Ash

    Is this a CDMA phone or GSM? Also does Reliance have 3G in maharashtra?

    I wonder if Vodafone will do something and follow suit. If it works with the iPhone, it sure can work with other phones like the upcoming Nexus 5.

    Finally RCOM is doing something for india.. If this offer goes successfully then we could also see a wave of cheaper phones in india.. YAH!!

    Only to be handicapped by the fact that Reliance does not have 3G (forget 4G!) in many of the major circles and that restricting it to credit card holders will lose them a good chunk of potential customers.
