Vodafone Idea (Vi)

Earlier this month, Vodafone Idea (Vi) introduced eSIM support for its customers in Maharashtra and Goa. Now, the telecom service provider has expanded its eSIM service for prepaid customers in New Delhi. According to the company, eSIM will provide seamless, faster, and eco-friendly connectivity for its users across India. 

Praveg Gupta- Cluster Business Head- Delhi and Rajasthan at Vodafone Idea Limited, said, “At Vi, we believe in introducing services and offerings that bring convenience and value for our customers. Embracing eSIM technology not only reflects our ongoing efforts to meet the evolving needs of our customers but also leverages advanced technologies towards a sustainable future.”

The company says Vi prepaid users on a compatible eSIM smartphone will benefit from greater convenience and flexibility. Further, eSIM supports multiple profiles on a single drive, and users can use it as a secondary SIM card without removing their primary SIM card from the device.

How to get Vi eSIM

To get Vi eSIM, existing customers can initiate the process by sending an SMS: eSIM followed by their registered email ID to 199. After the validation of the email, users need to reply with ESIMY to confirm the SIM change request. Then, users need to provide consent over the phone call. After providing the content on call, users will receive a QR code on their registered email ID, which users need to scan by going to Settings > Mobile Data > Add data plan. After that, the eSIM will be activated within 30 minutes. New customers can visit their nearest Vi store with identity proof and follow the activation process to get the Vi eSIM.

Considering the fact that they have the most amount of liberalised 4G ready spectrum among all operators currently, it's a shame if they can't handle the increased data traffic when an operator like Jio is handling it better with limited spectrum. This only implies that Vodafone Idea is reducing the number of towers to save on the cash outflow, no matter how much they advertise about adding MIMO towers. They will add towers only in Metro cities where they get return on investment, smaller cities and rural areas will face severe congestion on Vodafone Idea network.

yesterday the Network of Vodafone,Idea & Airtel was horribly down. From morning to afternoon there wasn't any network of Airtel & Idea, but on Vodafone it was slow. so I used JIO's 2GB daily data that time. after 5pm the network became normal so started using Voda and my 3GB daily data expired at 6:18pm. but the files I put on downloading continued!

well.. I used ~24GB DATA by Vodafone from 6:18pm to 8:45pm!! at 8:45pm my mother made a call so I had to stop, then at 9:20pm I tried again, but the speed slowed down to 12-18kB/s.

(I gave my Hotspot password to 3 neighbor friends last month, so that they can also use some of my 7.4GB daily data. But there were few days when they used so many data that at evening I coundn't use the internet. I don't know if it's miracle or not but I think for giving away free wifi for a month I got this free data! #just_my_thoughts)
