The plan starts from Rs 158, and goes up to Rs 958 loaded with minutes, data and SMS offerings. This plan is especially beneficial to users who use multiple devices like smartphones, and dongles on laptops and tablets.
“Users can transfer Internet packs, minutes and SMS to their friends and families, through a simple process of USSD or just by logging to Idea website,” the company said in a statement.
You can go to the Idea website here, and buy the desired pack by following the payment gateway method. After buying the plan, you can just share the benefits by dialling *121*121#. The traditional USSD method recharge via mobile (*147#) can also be done to buy the ‘Easy Share’ plan, and then share it with family and friends with Idea subscription.
For postpaid subscriber, Easy share plan is already available since last one year and we are now happy to introduce sharing plan for our prepaid subscribers. The plan not only helps users to share their voice and data benefits but also provides great value for money, Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular said.
It’s refreshing to see Idea extending its services to prepaid users, while many operators look to convert its prepaid userbase by offering lucrative benefits exclusive on postpaid cards. However Idea is not the only operator elevating the prepaid experience.
Last month, even Reliance Communications announced a new scheme called Free Facebook Fridays for its prepaid customers. These users are given free access to Facebook on Fridays, without depleting their data packs at all. In April,Tata Docomo launched data plans for its prepaid customers, offering an extended validity period for the price of a monthly recharge. The recharge packages known as ‘Stretch’ start at Rs 136 and offer a 60-day validity at the price of 30 days.
