Hope most of you might be using our old BSNL 3G Chennai Hack to use your Gprs data plan at 3G speed. This tip will help others for whom the above trick does not work. BSNL recently Limited the unlimited Plan ( Which we enjoyed couple of months back ) for 3G connections to maximum of 15 GB per month for 1503 INR ( May vary at your place ). Here am sharing a simple tip to enjoy BSNL 3G speed on your mobile or on Data Card for just 999 INR ( May vary at your place ).
The Tip – Micro Sim for iPad :
Well, lets get into the Point. The tip is nothing but using a Micro Sim for iPad, I just bought an iPad 2, couple of weeks back and i was thinking to use my Normal 3G sim as a micro sim on my iPad by cutting the conventional Sim into appropriate size using MicroSim-Cutter which is selling hot on eBay. By that time, someone informed me the availability of Micro Sim for iPad provided by BSNL.
Finally, i visited the BSNL store and i received the Microsim for 100 INR ( Sim cost + Activation Charge ). This includes 1GB of free Data Usage every month for next 6 months. For Unlimited data Usage, You have to Recharge with 999 INR ( 30 days validity ). I tested on my ipad and it works great after a couple of mins it gets activated.
Does Micro-Sim work on Mobiles/ Data Card ?
Amazingly, Yes it does !
I tried using the same Micro Sim on my BSNL 3G Data card ( Teracom Manufacture ) and on my Android Mobile ( Xperia x10 mini ).
It works perfectly without any issues. Only thing you have to note is that you should take care while inserting the Micro Sim into your Mobile/ Datacard as the Sim Slot would be bigger in size than the Sim. Make sure, the Golden part of the Micro Sim gets into contact of the Sim Slot perfectly.
1. Remember, you are buying the MicroSim for your iPad and not for normal Use, So ask for MicroSim to use on iPad to the BSNL Store keeper.
2. Sometimes, they might ask for IMEI number of your iPad to limit the usage of the Sim to particular device, try to escape from the situation with your intellectual skills 😉
3. However, the speed is comparatively way lesser than conventional 3G Sim. We will update the comparison of Internet Speed Test on both Sim’s in next article, Stay updated with us via mail instantly, subscribe to our Free Email updates.
