“These data packs will enable Tata Docomo prepay GSM customers to enjoy the hugely popular WhatsApp with specially customized value for money data plans and with unlimited use”.

Unlimited WhatsApp plan for 15 days

Save more than 50% in this plan. You just have to pay 15 rupees for 15 days. Sounds economical, that’s exactly what Tata Docomo has to provide. It also has a monthly pack as well.

Monthly unlimited plans for WhatsApp

Now just invest 30 rupees and use WhatsApp for the entire month. This pack will help you to lower your monthly budget for mobile bills. Combining this with the calls rates of Tata Docomo, it will become one of the most economical telecom providers in India.

Hidden fact of these plans

Tata Docomo has announced that, these plans are unlimited, but they have not mentioned the Fair usage policy and the speed catching limits. This becomes very important since WhatsApp allows users to upload and download pictures, short movies, images audio files, push to talk messages, etc.

Alternative cost-friendly WhatsApp data plan

Reliance communications has a better offer than Tata Docomo’s unlimited WhatsApp plan. By using it plan, you can access unlimited Facebook and WhatsApp for rupees 16. So for a year, you just need to pay 192 rupees for using these services. It is relatively cheaper than Tata Docomo’s current unlimited plans.

How to avail these plans?

Just SMS Internet to 52270, receive the data settings from Docomo and save them as default settings. If you use these plans and wish to access regular data for other applications, you will have to end up paying 1paise/kb.

Reliance unlimited WhatsApp and Facebook plan

Reliance is made it very simple for you. All you need to do is SMS any one of these activation codes

  • ACT WhatsApp
  • ACT Facebook

to 53739. Once it is activated, you can avail these services. It will automatically deduct 16 Rupees from your main balance.

    That really is a great thing if applicable everywhere. Most of the telecom operators are now coming up with such an offer to make the most of the popularity of whatsapp. I would love to see it with every phone.

      Hi Raj,

      While other companies increased their charges and reduce the limit of
      data, Reliance and Tata Docomo provided the best plans. What’s more
      interesting to see it how would major telecom players react to this?
      We would also love if every consumer has affordable data solutions.
      Hope to see some great plans in future.

    These plans are good only for casual WhatsApp users but nothing can beat WiFi. The speed also is satisfactory and at the same time, there is enough FUP for the uploads and downloads….

      Hi Naser,
      I completely agree with you. Wi-Fi is has spectacular speed and better
      FUP as well. If consumers want to take advantage of WI-Fi everywhere
      they go, they need to look forward for portable Wi-Fi hotspot device
      like TP-Link TL-MR3020. This device allows you to plug-in your data
      card and use Wi-Fi on the go. So, you can use your data card for PC
      and Mobile.

    It’s great on part of Tata Docomo to launch these plans of Whats app. Tata docomo’s low call rate, its tata docomo get app combined with this whats app plan makes it top operator in my list. I have also known of Tata Docomo unlimited facebook and twitter plans. Probably it is a part of this Whats app plan.. 🙂

      Hi Vinay,

      I would be extremely happy if Tata Docomo has unlimited Facebook and Twitter plans with this WhatsApp plan. Right now, they haven’t got the idea to do so. May be they can make us happy in near future. Tata Docomo has good call plans too. Moreover Reliance also has some exceptional plans. Do have a look at them as well.

      If one user has a dual SIM phone, he can use Reliance’s data plan for WhatsApp and Tata Docomo for calls. This way it will be more economical for him.

      Hi Stephan,
      Yes, it is one of the greatest steps taken by Tata Docomo. I would love to see Wi-Fi Speeds on my phone using a data plan. Maybe Tata Docomo should work on this idea. 🙂

    A very good initiative from the Tata DoCoMo and few other service providers, this plan would be very beneficial for those who only uses limited internet data mainly for whatsapp and facebook.

    Will Airtel come up with this kind of plan ever? It is the worst and the most costliest service. The net pack costs me Rs.125 for 1GB for 28 Days, that too the 2G speed.
