Idea postpaid SIM is not showing network : Resolved

Idea cellular is among the leading private telecom player in India. Most of the Idea customer are prepaid but Postpaid services of Idea has grown faster than any other company due to their plans and offline campaigns.

If you are Idea Postpaid user and currently facing an issue on that where you are not able to connect to Idea network then here are a few ways to do solve it. Idea is among those company who restrict your SIM to connect to the network if you do not pay the bill or have some other issue.

Pay Your Bill

Yes, Stubborn Idea will cut your Network if you do not pay their bill before due date.  You need to clear your due completely and wait for few minutes to go online again. Here are steps:

  • Pay your Bill via any Payment service, online or Offline.
  • If you do not know the amount to be paid you need to visit any Idea store for that. Or you can Pay approximately 100 INR extra to whatever your monthly rental is.  (If you are on Plan Rs 399 then pay around 550 INR. This includes Taxes + rental + 100 INR extra Approximately. )
  • After making payment, You need to wait for 10-15 minutes and then restart your phone to get network connectivity.

Select Network Manually

If Your Bill is paid and you think that bill is not the issue then you need to try this.  Idea has tie-ups with few telecoms for 3G and 2G networks. They somewhere use Airtel’s 3G network to provide 3G services. Similarly, they might use 2G network of some other company too. Here are steps for it:

  • Make sure you are on LTE/WCDMA/GSM mode. Some phone reads 4G/3G/2G mode or Auto mode.
  • If you are on 2G only or 3G only mode then switch it to Auto mode.
  • Now go to Network settings and in “search network” Select Choose network Automatically.
  • If you are still not getting any network, go to Select network manually.
  • After search, you will get to see many networks. Select Idea network, if any.
  • If you see no such Idea’s Network then choose Airtel 3G Network.
  • You will get the signal most probably.

Is Roaming service Activated?

Idea has given customer option to turn their SIM off if they go into a Roaming Area. You can access this service via their Mobile app or Website.  Here are steps for that:

  • Go to My Idea app or login into My account on Idea’s website.
  • There, Go to accounts Section and click on services. (See the Image in last Point.)
  • You will see National Roaming service listed there.
  • Turn that on. This will have no charges.
  • idea-sim-roming

Visit Idea Store.

If none of these works, you need to rush to Idea store. If the SIM was not active for long, chances are there that Idea has disconnected it from their end.  Also sometimes they Add some sort of charges and you might not know the exact Bill amount. In that case, Idea store will tell you the amount and you can pay the bill their Using Debit/credit card of Cash.

PCA facility on Reliance Communication 

If you are here to know about the PCA service or facility of RCom and got a message of “PCA facility has been deactivated”  or “Success, PCA service has been activated”.  We have the answer. 

PCA is actually Pre Call alert facility from Reliance Communication for all its customers.  This is a service which is auto activated and deactivated from Reliance depending upon the condition of Roaming,  Bill due,  Expiration of pack etc.  

PCA facility reliance
Reliance reminds you about any certain thing via this facility.  For example if your bill is due then they activate this PCA and whenever you make calls they remind that Bill is due.  

If you got text of its activation and deactivation,  no need to worry.  This service is anyway a free service and reliance will not charge for it.

Airtel Launches Payments Bank : All you need to know

Airtel has launched its Payments Bank in Rajasthan and will soon launch it nationwide. Many of us are still having so many doubts about the offerings of this new service. We even asked Airtel stores but even after the launch they are skeptical about its details. Let us clear some air.

What are payments Bank? 

Payments banks will be Virtual banks with facilities of Savings and Current account on board. They can not offer loans and Credit card. However, they can offer Debit card, Internet banking etc.  Reserve Bank of India gave this idea to India a few years ago.

What are limitations of Airtel Payments Bank? 

Airtel Payments Bank is not a full-fledged bank.  Maximum deposit in a day can not go beyond Rs. 49,990.  You can only do transactions of Rs 5,00,000 in a day. As per Payments Bank rules, Airtel can not offer any loans, credit or Credit cards via its Payments Bank. Below given are some other limits.

Airtel payments bank limits

Can I transfer Money to any Airtel Payments Bank user without any charges? 

Yes, Any transfers within Airtel Payments bank will be Instant and free of cost. Though it can not exceed limits of Daily Transactions as stated in the previous point.

Can I transfer money to any Real Traditional Bank account / Savings account / Current account? 

Yes, you can. But this attracts charges.  You need to pay as per the existing charges as given in Image below.  airtel-payments-bank-charges

These charges might change as PayTM has plans to launch Payments Bank soon and competition will surely play its part.

Can I use Airtel Payments if I don’t have Airtel Mobile Number? 

Yes, Airtel says you can. However, it has some restrictions as of now.  You might have to access Payments bank only via Airtel Money app as USSD code will not work from a number of any other operator.

How much time its takes to open an Airtel Payments Account? 

It just takes 4-5 minutes to open an Airtel Payments bank account if Airtel is believed.  The process of e-KYC has to credited for this.

What documents are required to open an Airtel Payments Bank account? 

You just need your aadhar card. You do not need to submit it there. It is all digital. They need only your aadhar number and you are done with formalities.

Where can one open this account? 

You need to walk to Airtel store for this. At present only stores is Rajasthan have this facility.

Do we get free Talktime / Minutes if we deposit money in Airtel Payments Bank?

Yes, If you have an Airtel connection then you get 1 free Local and STD minutes of every Indian rupee you deposit. If you deposit Rs 5000, you get 5000 minutes of free talktime.

But this is a promotional offer and you can get this benefit with your first deposit only.

Do we get Insurance cover with each Airtel Payments Bank account? 

Yes, Airtel is offering a personal accidental Insurance cover of Rs 1 lac with every savings account. Insurance is provided by Bharti AXA.

Can we have more than one account? 

No, You can not hold more than one account in Airtel Payments bank.

Will I get any Debit card or ATM card on my Airtel Payments bank account? 

No. However, Airtel can offer debit or ATM card in future as RBI has allowed payments Bank to offer Debit cards. But since they are based on the idea of Digital India, it is unlikely to happen.

How much interest Airtel will offer?

Airtel will offer Interest rate of 7.25 % per annum. However, there are no clear words over the question of how this amount will be credited. It may be credited quarterly.

Will there be any charge to access Airtel Payments Bank via USSD or IVR?

No, It will be all free. You can access via *400# or via IVR by dialing 400.

What happens to the existing Airtel money accounts? 

All the existing Airtel money accounts with retailers i.e.  Airtel Money Power account has been upgraded to Airtel Payments bank account. The other Airtel money accounts i.e. Express account needs to update e-KYC and move to Payments Bank facility.

 

If there are more questions in your mind, ask in the comments section and I will include them here.

Why calls do not connect from Jio?

If you are using the revolutionary Reliance Jio then you must have noticed by now that it is a real pain to make calls from Jio and sometimes same happens when people call on your Jio number.

But why this is happening? Earlier Jio claimed that once they roll out services commercially, this problem will be solved. But it is already 15 days since the Jio launched. This problem seems to have no end.

Believing Jio, the operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea etc are not providing enough Interconnect points to calls or traffic coming from Jio. They have been accusing same from Day one.

Operators like Airtel etc are agreeing to this to some extent but also says that they do not have enough financial power to invest upon this.

As per reports, Reliance Jio has already paid Airtel enough to establish Interconnect points and Airtel agreed to increase the points by 3 folds. But as per Jio it is just 1/4th of their needs.

Interconnect points are something which allows a customer of Operator A to call a customer of Operator B. And the A pays the charges to B.

The calls from Jio are free, Jio says that their calls are from Data and hence they do not need to pay this charge.  Still, Jio is ready to pay a bit to operators for establishing additional interconnection points.

Whatever be the solution, Jio has to come with it out soon. Failing so they will turn a Data only provider and others might feel no competition in Voice business.

 

New and better version of JioFi launched.

WiFi device of Reliance Jio i.e. JoiFi recently got a new version. This one is a good upgrade compared to JioFi 2 which came to the market just a month back.

New JioFi comes with an OLED display and bigger battery.  One can connect upto 10 devices with this and can make calls using Jio4GVoice app from any Android or iOS device.

Customer gets Welcome offer with this device also where calls are free and Data is unlimited but with a cap of 4 GB 4G data only.

It is better than the previous version because of the bigger battery powering it. It is having a 2600 mAh battery. This one is also designed in India.

Price is also reasonable. You can get this just by spending Rs 1999. Looks like Jio learned the pricing lesson with the previous JioFi 2, which was priced at Rs 2899 first but soon Jio realized the mistake and brought it down to Rs 1999.

This is now looking a good deal and value for money. Though the device is yet not listed but many of the media persons are reporting that it is available in many cities already.

Here is the Image of device as posted by PhoneRadar:

Are calls really free from Reliance Jio? Data charges Applicable!!

Reliance Jio has set a new benchmark in Indian Telecom Industry.  Everyone was expecting relatively cheaper calls and Data but Jio went way forward and made calls free.

They were able to do so because Jio is all about Data. It’s a data network and calls made via them transmits on Data bandwidth.  So when one makes or receives a call via Jio, he is using his data.

But now comes a twist. Calls are free on Reliance but data is not. So will the Data used by calls be charged from you Data pack?

No, Jio recently made it all clear that they will not charge Data consumed by calls from your Data pack. Not just the confirmation, the company added this to their website. Here is a snap of the same:-

Jio Calls

Sorry for the poor Quality. 

So that is now something really exciting. You will not pay for calls at all. Moreover, Reliance is already giving 4 GB 4G data daily as a welcome offer to all the new and old customers and will keep this on until the end of this year.

But before you jump off your place run to buy a Jio SIM card read this.  There is a huge demand of Jio.  Actually because of its Data offering and Jio is not able to fulfill this demand. Supply of SIM cards is low and that is resulting into long waiting. You might have to wait days for that and even stand in queues for hours.  So before visiting Jio center or Digital xpress, keep your documents ready and also pack your things to eat during those long queues.
