3. The “Always On” feature
This feature allows users to stay connected even after their packs expire (in 4, 10, 14, 28 days). Charges of ₹599/day will apply only if there is the usage of voice, SMS or calls. However, these charges won't be applicable when in India. The ‘Always On’ feature is valid for 3 years, once activated.
4. Roam Safe Feature
Vodafone’s RoamSafe feature protects its users from unwanted or accidental usage charges by keeping data off when:
· A customer tours a country without activating an international roaming pack
· A customer tours a country where the said roaming pack is not applicable
However, if a subscriber wishes to use data while abroad, standard international charges apply.
A customer can also activate data services in the following ways:
· By sending an SMS ACT IRDATA to 199 or dialling *111*1*4*3#
· Data remains active until he chooses to deactivate it
To deactivate the data service customers can SMS CAN IRDATA to 199.
