After Airtel & Idea, Aircel to let users make own plans

Aircel Cellular has announced a new scheme under which prepaid and postpaid users can create their own unique plans using a mix of STD, local and Data packs.

The service is available for both Aircel & Non Aircel customers. New Customers can activate these plans, by simply filling and submitting the Aircel Customer Enrollment Form at the nearest Aircel store. Existing customers have the freedom of recharging Value Packs online or choose any a new plan by using the design tool.

“Now there is a plan for everyone, whether it’s a customer who loves to talk, or is a high SMS user, a Social Networking addict or even a Traveler there’s a plan which can be customized to suit the need. It will not only enable them with flexibility but also the freedom and convenience to manage their plans,” the company said.

Airtel and Idea Cellular offers similar services, but only to billing customers. To be fair, prepaid users already enjoy such flexibility due to the availability of special tariff vouchers and schemes.

The prepaid version of the tool simply repackages the various STVs on offer. As such, the facility is more likely to be useful to postpay or billing customers.
