Normally Postapid is cheaper than Prepaid as you are bound to pay a certain amount of money to the provider at the end of the month.My brother uses a Vodafone pre paid while i use a vodafone postpaid.He recharges with rs97/99 and gets 1 gb of data on Vodafone 2g.I decided to activate a similar plan on my postpaid but was told that the minimum plan is rs 299 for 1 gb.

WTF????/

Seriously considering a port out to idea or docomo as thir plans are much better.

Also i am wondering what will be my credit limit if i port out to another provider.My credit limit is presently rs 3500 with Vodafone though when i took connection i paid only rs500 as security.They increased it after seeing my bill payment record.Do i have to go through the same thing with the new provider also.I seriously dont want to pay rs3500 as security.

Its the same case with (almost) every operator! Funny but true....Postpaid has become costlier than Prepaid!

Contact the customer care, they will give you 1 GB for Rs.99. If you are a tough negotiator, you will get 2 GB for Rs.99. I got it few months back. Regarding credit limit, the same limit should be given by new operator as per TRAI rules. I faced the problems with IDEA last month, to retain my credit limit of Rs.39600. After many mails to customer care and Nodal officer, I got it.

Yeah, Vodafone begins to bargain. I had once asked them to deactivate my SIM and they begun offering me the same plan for less monthly rental. And when I said that I am moving on to another carrier who is offering me a special plan, they said that no mobile operator can discriminate among their customers.I wonder what Vodafone was doing on offering me the same plan for less rental so that I stay with them.

You may try one trick. Ask them for termination bcoz of costly 2G Data pack. If they would be in good mood and as you are a old customer, they will offer you 2GB@ Rs 99.

You will be treated as normal new customer in case of MNP by recipient Operator. So, Credit limit will be assigned by default irrespective of previous Credit Limit.

Postpaid in itself is more expensive than prepaid. You need to be on a corporate or special postpaid plan to make it worth your while.
