so the article said that queuing works. airtel guy had told me that queuing works if you recharge with same plan. this works for me and i have been doing this for a while now. they did a recharge of different plan and it worked for them. so i guess that's nice.
This is a classic case of dumb management in the older telcos. They still haven't realised they could have started this & garbed lot of money. I guess there is a thin line between innocence and idiocy.
Airtel allows you to queue up your plans in advance so that the next plan automatically activates once the current plan expires. But there is a catch.
How to queue plans on Reliance Jio
First select a plan to recharge with, we suggest you opt for a plan with a higher validity such as 90 days or 180 days.
Now, recharge with this plan.
You can go to MyJio and below the present plan, you will be able to see the queued up plans.
You can click on the ‘Activate’ button to activate a queued-up plan.
How to queue plans on Airtel
To queue a plan on Airtel, all you need to do is recharge your number with the plan of your choice from the Airtel Thanks app or the company’s website.
Like Jio, we recommend you to opt for a plan with a validity of 90 days or 180 days for maximum benefit.
You can see the status of your current plan and your upcoming plans on the Airtel Thanks app.
Airtel allows you to queue plans for up to 180 days at a time.
Conditions for Airtel
Queue up feature works but only when the user is on an unlimited combo plan of Airtel.
Customers can even queue up a long term plan of Rs 1,699.
As said before, only unlimited combo plan subscribers can avail this facility. So if the subscriber is on smart recharge plans and buys an unlimited combo offer then the new plan will be activated immediately.
