Many of us hate receiving calls when we are out of city or country because of the roaming charges we need to pay. What most of us do is call back the person and save some money if possible. However when you are on international roaming calling back isnt feasible either. Another problem that users face is to change of number everytime you visit a different country.
Airtel recently introduced a perfect solution for the international travellers with a new feature they call as World pre paid sim which can be used in the residential country as well as the foreign country. This will allow you to receive incoming calls and make out going calls only from your Indian Airtel number to across the world ( 150 countries) and still save your 85% on your international calls roaming. As of now this sim is available only in Delhi and NCR.
Please note : Airtel World Sim is another sim which you need to buy. It is not on the sim which you are using in India. However when you switch the number is connected to your World sim and hence you will have the same number.
