Truth Behind the Free SIMs provided by retailers

The mobile become a part in our daily life. People cannot live without mobile. Because the communication has became that much important in human life. In India we can see most of the retail SIM card sellers will provide the free SIMs with talk time of 10 rupees to 50 rupees. All we need is to provide one photo and the address proof and the identity proof. The card will get activated in 5 minutes. They will provide many cards to the same proof also. So people will buy more than one card and finish the balance and through the SIM and get the get the SIM in the next day. Everyone will think the service providers is only providing this kind of offers. Me too thought like that before. But after i worked in the telecom industry i got to know the truth behind the free SIMs provided by the Retailers. The truth is the service providers wont provide these kind of offers. They will have an offer for the distributors for the number of sales. If they crossed the number of new connections in a fixed period of time they will get the profit of more than the profit by selling the cards. So the distributors provide the SIM's at free of cost. When SIM's are provided for free the sales will become ten times more than the normal sales. Distributor can achieve the target within the time and he will get the profit. If the service providers provide the SIMs for free of cost they cannot run the company for a long time. Because for producing a SIM card it costs around 30 Rupees(~$0.75). The companies will have the collabration with the other companies and provide the offers for the distributers. They get that offers in this way and provide the SIMs for free of cost. In Future this leads to be a big problem in the country. Because the mobile numbers have started with number 9 (eg. 988462****). Now itself the number series has come to 7 (eg.788462****). If it goes like this all the numbers will fill and in future a condition will come to reuse the old numbers.

Growth of Dual SIM Phones

Everyone might be aware of the Dual SIM phones. Dual SIM phones were first introduced by the China made mobiles and the Korean made mobiles. They ruled the Indian mobile market for the more than two years. The reasons for the growth of dual SIM phones are because of its features the mobile companies providing. The Dual SIM mobile phones are coming with the facilities of
1. Camera

4. Expandable Memory card Slot (Supports upto 4GB)
5. Browsing option
6. Touch Screen
7. Mobile TV
All these facilities came for the price for just Rs. 1500 to Rs. 3000. One year before if we want to buy a mobile with these facilities means we need to spend a minimum of Rs.15000. So many of the people went to this type of china and Korean made mobiles. And another important thing is, In India many of the retail SIM dealers provide the FREE SIM with talk time of rupees 10 to Rs.50. Every one bought more than one SIM for their personal purpose. They used one permanent number and used this kind of free SIM for temporary. When the talk time finishes they just throw the Free SIM and get another SIM. They have to open the Mobile and need to change the SIM every time when they are in need to talk with the Free SIM. For this purpose many people opt for the Dual SIM phones. The Sales of Dual SIM phones were crossed the sales of the single SIM featured mobiles. Because of the Sudden growth of the Dual SIM in the market the leading companies like Nokia, Samsung and Motorola were started the production of the Dual SIM phones. At the beginning Samsung has produced the dual SIM phone for Rs.14000. But that model was a great flop in the mobile market.

Nowadays all the leading mobile companies are releasing the Dual SIM phones with new facilities. The Dual SIM phones occupied the mobile market in a Short period of time.

That's why every mobile shops are offering an 40% or 50% discounts in mobiles. They make you to belive that the piece is original. The logo and the stickers will be more good than the original mobile stickers. To avoid all these things try to buy mobiles in Branded show rooms. Even in showrooms there are people sell duplicate models. Before buying mobiles check whether the showroom is an authorized showroom. Check the production unit where the piece was manufactured. Check in internet the mobile company's manufacturing unit details. Many companies are providing the facility to check the originality of the mobiles with their IMEI#. Confirm it with the mobile company's website. Visit the authorized service center once when you bought the mobile.
