- RoamSafe: To safeguard you from accidental data usage in a foreign country, thereby resulting in high data charges, your mobile internet will be kept deactivated, if you travel without a pack or if you travel to a country where our packs are not applicable. If you still wish to use the internet on your mobile, at the applicable standard roaming rates you can send the SMS ACT IRDATA to 199. This service will remain active for 7 Days and gets automatically deactivated after 7 Days. You can renew this service after every 7 Days by sending the SMS ACT IRDATA to 199.
However, we strictly advise NOT to use mobile internet abroad without an International Roaming recharge. If you decide not to take a pack, use local wi-fi. Once the data service has been made active, it will remain ON unless a customer specifically deactivates the data service again. To deactivate the data service again, send the SMS: CAN IRDATA to 199
- Always on: For pack users, we have an additional safeguard with the ‘Always-On’ feature to protect them from high International Roaming Charges for any usage after pack expiry. For eg, if you have taken a 7-day pack and you continue to use your phone on International Roaming even after the 7 days are over (you will get an intimation upon your pack expiry), you just get charged for the Daily Roaming pack @ Rs 599 and your entire usage is treated as pack usage, thereby saving you from any high bill basis standard rates.
