Airtel Postpaid users can switch to Prepaid quite easily, but need to visit an Airtel store to do so. The telecom operator has a strong presence in India and it offers postpaid and prepaid services to its calling and data consuming subscribers. Airtel Postpaid users get monthly bills of their expenses after the month is over whereas prepaid users need to pay beforehand in order to avail data and calling benefits. Recharging of prepaid plans and paying postpaid bills is an easy affair, and it can be done through the Airtel Thanks app or via third party apps like Paytm, Freecharge, and others. However, when you need to switch from postpaid to prepaid, that process can be a bit lengthy and isn't common knowledge to everyone.
For those Airtel subscribers who wish to shift from postpaid to prepaid, we have prepared a step-by-step guide on how to make the switch.
To transition from Airtel postpaid to prepaid, you will have to visit the nearest Airtel Store. Earlier, it was required to carry verification documents like identity and address proof while visiting the store, but now Airtel has introduced a new OTP process that makes it very easy to switch to prepaid. Before you switch to prepaid, it is important to note that data rollover benefits will be forfeited and all the collated data over a period of time will be lost. Furthermore, all Airtel Thanks app benefits given to postpaid users will also be lost with the switch. Users have to be on Airtel postpaid for more than 30 days to be eligible for making the switch to prepaid. Follow these simple steps to switch from Airtel postpaid and become an Airtel prepaid subscriber.
