Vodafone has introduced a new prepaid recharge for its new customers. The new First Recharge (FRC) pack of Rs. 351 has reportedly been launched offering a validity of 56 days, and comes with calling and SMS benefits only. This pack doesn't offer any data benefit, and is only live and applicable for all new subscribers of Vodafone. The telecom operator is also offering unlimited calling benefits with this plan with no FUP limit, just like Reliance Jio.
The new Vodafone FRC Rs. 351 prepaid recharge comes with unlimited calling without any FUP limit, and 100 SMS messages per day for a validity of 56 days. This pack doesn't come with any data benefit and new subscribers will have to buy a data pack separately. Details of this new pack was reported by Telecom Talk, and the report notes that the price of this prepaid recharge may vary with every circle. The pack reportedly also comes with free Vodafone Play subscription. It is unclear when exactly Vodafone started offering the Rs 351 FRC, but it seems to have been available to the consumers since December 2018.
The lack of data benefit is a disappointment as all of its other FRC packs come with daily data benefits. The Rs. 176 pack comes with 28 days validity, unlimited calling, 1GB data benefit, and 100 SMS messages per day. Similarly, the Rs. 229 pack comes with unlimited calling, 1GB data per day, and 100 SMS messages per day for a validity of 28 days. There are also the Rs. 496 and Rs. 555 prepaid recharges that offer unlimited calling, 1.4GB of daily data, and 100 SMS per day. The validity of these plans is 84 days and 90 days respectively.
Vodafone had recently launched a new long validity prepaid recharge, priced at Rs. 1,999. The pack offers 1.5GB 4G/ 3G data per day, which means a total of 547.5GB for the course of its 365 days validity. It also offers its subscribers unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls as well as 100 SMS messages per day for the entire 365-day validity.
