I have a BSNL SIM which is temporarily out of service. I hardly use it. I see the network bar though. But it's due to be recharged next month. Hope my SIM remains active. Gotta recharge it soon !

If TRAI would continue making Bakwas ruls, days are not far, when they wil say No Prepaid Connection or Incoming would be chargable .

Agree. Things have started going back in the telecom industry from the era where it started. Broadband was costlier, got a little inexpensive after sometime. Then again after introduction of FUP & other shit it's going back to stone age. And That Jammu Kashmir thing is pathetic. Why can't one use their SIM on that state. After all it's a part of India not of those terrorists neighbors.

Stupid rule.

I use bsnl and airtel sims only for internet in my data card, if this rule is really implemented then i have to try MOBIKWIK SCHEDULE RECHARGE. (mobikwik.com)
In the article it’s clearly mentioned that “SIM card may soon be terminated from service if not recharged or any calls made or received from it in 20 days” so i will try to recharge my mobile with in 20 days as my data card doesn't support voice calls
Schedule recharge may help for people who travel out of state/india, then can just set a future date for recharge
I Kept schedule recharge for tomorrow in mobikwik , lets see how it goes .....never tried scheduled recharge .......any one tried it before ????????

Note: you must have mobikwik balance for schedule recharge. I have around 26rs balance, recharged to be done tom , amt 10rs.

That Means even though we don't require to recharge, we need to recharge within 20 days. And wt will happen to subscribers who use 3G Data Cards which has noting to do with calls and monthly recharge ??
