You’ll be able to easily check whether the provision of ISD calls has been activated on your Vi (Vodafone Idea) number. Vi permits you to make voice calls to people out of the country with the International Subscriber Dialing (better referred to as ISD) service. The telecom operator has different prepaid and postpaid ISD call rates for making outbound international calls. Alternatively, just like other operators, Vi also has some recharge packs that offer ISD calling minutes with a validity. The ISD recharge packs for Vi customers start from as little as Rs. 18.
How to activate ISD on Vi (Vodafone Idea)
Vi (Vodafone Idea) customers don’t seem to be required to dial a number or send an SMS message to activate the ISD service on their numbers. For most users, the service has been enabled by default. Alternatively, in some cases, the operator can ask customers to send SMS message “ACT ISD” to 144 to activate ISD service.
You’ll be able to make an ISD call on Vi by prefixing “+” followed by the area code and the phone number. Different rates apply for ISD calls to different ISD codes for both Vi prepaid and postpaid customers that you’ll check on the telecom operator’s official website.
Vi offers some prepaid recharge packs to either bundle some calling minutes or cut call charges for making ISD calls. Customers on Vi prepaid plans can recharge with the Rs. 18 pack to receive 60 minutes of ISD calls for a day. In a similar way, there’s a Rs. 61 ISD recharge pack that reduces the call rates to the United States and Canada to 1 paisa per second. Customers can also pick the Rs. 295 prepaid recharge pack to receive 40 minutes of ISD calling at the side of 28 days of validity.
