Airtel india on 13 April 2017 launched new plans for Airtel 4G customer. They launched two new plans i.e 244 plan and 399 plan. Airtel claim that Both the offer provide 70GB data for 70 days. There are many misconception going on regarding this two Airtel new offers. In this article I have provided the complete details about Airtel new ₹399 plan of 3 Month. About the ₹244 4G plan Will take in a different article.
Airtel is one of the top Telecom company in India. But Airtel plan and offer are always not clear like other Telecom Service provider. When I said other Telecom Service provider , I mean to say Reliance jio. Yes Jio change the scenario of service provider in India. This ₹ 399 plan of Airtel is said to be a counter plan of jio ₹399 new plan.
Airtel unlike Jio keep some hidden terms and conditions on each and every new plans. In this article i have disclose all the hidden terms and conditions of airtel 399 plan. Which comes with validity of 3 Month, where you get 1GB daily 4G data. There are many questions Airtel customer have regarding this plan. Like is this plan only for 4G user ? , Is there any hidden terms and conditions ? , who is eligible for this plan ? is this plan giving Unlimited 4G data ? etc etc. So below I have all the answers to those questions.
Airtel 399 prepaid plan details
So from above table itself almost every is clear about this offer. Still there are many things to be understood , so lets see. As you know now that the offer is giving 70GB 4G internet data for 70 days. The validity that you get is 70 days , which you can say three-month. FUP ( Fair Use Policy) / daily data limit is set to 1GB per day. After which you will be charged for internet data not free unlimited like Jio. Also in this plan you will get unlimited calling to any number. But like Jio 399 plan , here you will not get unlimited free SMS.
To be eligible for this airtel offer , you must have 4G handset. And also note down that this offer is valid for first Recharge only. Which means the offer can be avail only once by a single Airtel customer.
If we compare this airtel 4G plan with Jio 4G plan of ₹399 , Jio is more beneficial for us. In Jio 399 plan they are giving 84 days validity with 1GB daily. You also get unlimited calling and SMS to any number. But in this Airtel plan you won’t get free SMS only unlimited calling is given. Only advantage of Airtel ₹399 plan over Jio ₹399 plan is that Airtel 4G internet speed is faster. But Jio too improving day by day. If I were to choose in airtel and Jio , I will for sure will go for Jio new plan.
Airtel ₹399 plan Terms and Conditions

Honestly speaking, Airtel offers are too complicated with that small hidden t&c sign. Even their terms and condition are not clear. It took me too long just to search for the t&c of this offer. Note that above mentioned terms & condition are collected from news articles because i couldn’t find it on any airtel official website or on airtel app.
Important : As Airtel offers are not clear , so I strongly suggest you to contact customer care with your Airtel number before recharge with this plan. Also you can check this offer by dialing *121# .
Many people complaint that they got the offer message or it was showing on Airtel app but after recharge , they only got 1GB data for 28 days. If in case same thing happens with you follow porting method to get this offer.
Say you have recharged with ₹399 and after recharge you got only 1GB for 28 days. Then Send one message to TRAI . Send Port your number to 1900. Example PORT 9612057800 to 1900. Soon you will get call back from Airtel company. When they ask the reason for porting , tell them about the issue with 399 plan. They will give activate the offer in your number i.e offer of 70 days . Once they agreed to give you the offer , ask them to cancel the porting request.
