Recharge with ₹129 or above If you want to send SMS.
All Telecom Operators in India are intentionally not offering outgoing SMS perks on their modest plans. One of the biggest issues occurs when you are in urgent need of sending SMSs and you got know that you have to recharge for INR 129 or more to avail outgoing SMS benefits on your SIM card.
Even the telecom operators have discontinued the SMS packs that were affordable for a general user.
If you are thinking to port your number to another telecom operator. Due to any issue you can not do it without having an SMS outgoing benefit pack. To port, you need to send an SMS typing ‘PORT’ to 1900. But you can’t do that if you are on a cheap plan or lower plan than INR 129 or the minimum plan set by your operator to have outgoing SMS services.
