There would be no registration charges or activation fees for the new GSM postpaid SIM under this offer and, as mentioned earlier, calling between the two numbers (old and new) will be completely free though the customers will have to bear monthly charges as per the plan chosen on their new postpaid GSM number.

A postpaid customer, though needs to satisfy following 2 conditions to avail this offer:

  • Billing name address for both the connections should be same
  • New GSM connection can be applied for in the same circle where the existing CDMA number is used.

Seems like this offer is to achieve next 100 million customers within next 1000 days as targeted by the company.

Reliance Introduces ‘Busy Callertune’ Service

For instance you are travelling or busy in a meeting then it becomes difficult to respond to each of your caller or sending text to each of them telling you are busy in a meeting. In such case, you can activate special ‘busy callertunes’ that are charged on per hour basis and plays special callertunes when someone calls you.

Reliance

There are various Busy callertunes available (known as profiles), like “low battery”, “in class”, “in meeting”, etc.  You can get the entire list of various profiles and their codes on reliance’s official page

How to set Reliance Busy Callertunes?

SMS the following text from your reliance mobile:

CT <profile name> <time in hrs> to 51234

For ex. “CT DRIVING 3” to 51234
Sending this SMS will change your default callertune to “The person you have called is driving right now” for the next 3 hours. Cool, isn’t it?

Charges for Reliance Busy Callertunes:

  • Subscription: Rs. 30 per month (If you are not already subscribed to callertunes)
  • Charge per hour: Rs. 2
  • Charge per day: Rs. 3

The service definitely seems to be useful and affordable. Personally being a Reliance customer, I would love using this service. What’s your take about it?
