Vodafone has launched its new plan, available to both prepaid and postpaid users, called Vodafone Friends Circle. The much publicised plan allows users to add other Vodafone numbers to their friends list and make local calls to them @ 20paise/min.
However, the ad says that you can add as many friends as you like to this friend list, which does not hold true in reality. The maximum number of friends you can add is limited to 10 for prepaid users. You can change these at your own convenience, but this will cost you Rs.5 for each change. The plan is charged @ 50paise per day.
As for the postpaid users, this might turn out to be quite expensive as the number of Vodafone users that you can add to your list is 5, and each comes at the price of Rs.15/month.
We say: The plan may provide good value for moneyfor a prepaid user, but will also benefit a postpaid user who has majority calling to particular Vodafone number. Also the fact that the plan provides the flexibility to add one or more friends (postpaid) gives it that extra benefit.
