Its Yak Yak Yak Time on Virgin Mobile

virgin-mobile-win-vjazz  Its Yak Yak Yak Time for all Virgin Mobile customers as they have launched a new vPower recharge for all customers across India. With this new recharge a customer can benefit of making local calls at 30p/min after the initial first 3 minutes of the day. The recharge comes in for Rs. 16 and is valid for 180 days or 6 months.  It seems Virgin is in the verge of lower thier tariff to woo the youth.. Prior to their launch a year back,still Virgin today hasn’t been so much successfull in empowering the youth market with their CDMA service. What seemed to attract a portion of the customer was their innovative Get-paid-for-Receiving-Calls (GPRC) facility. But it faded away when they reduced the tariff from 10p/min to 5p/min incoming.

So the latest in offering from their rack is this new Rs.16 recharge which will enable Virgin customers to communicate the their local buddies at just 30p/min only after shelling out Re.1 for the consequtive 3 minutes which means Rs.3 in a day and then the rest calls can be made at 30p/min for the rest of the day and in addition to that the validity of this mini power packed recharge is valid for as long as 180 days. This seems a cool move to give freedom to customers to chat unlimited. But to every pro there’s always a con associated with it. The most effective con is that customers will not be able to enjoy the GPRC facility at all. It will restrict everyone from getting the benefit of getting 5p/min credited to their account. The details are given here with:
