    I ported an Airtel number to Jio using just DL and the number got ported in 6 days without any problem.

    A-VO-ID: Do a minimum RC of Rs.35 per 28days or No outgoing calls (Even with Main Balance!)

    I ported my secondary number to BSNL. The first recharge INR 81 gives 1 year validity.

    So do Vodafone allow recharging from main balance to extend validity ? I've been unsuccessful.

    Camera Need Camera - simple to use/carry/maintain

    Some great collections of lenses you got at stellar prices, Congrats ! Where did you get the A6000 for 17k ? I was thinking to upgrade from my Nex to A6000/A6300 and almost decided on buying new. If I could get a great deal like that, I'd get the A6000 body in a heartbeat.

    Camera Need Camera - simple to use/carry/maintain

    Looks like you already got many responses. I'll just add this. Spend a couple months using your existing lenses to photograph what you like. Then, observe which are the focal length you used most and buy suitable lenses accordingly. We all think we need so many lenses at different focal lengths...

    Camera Need Camera - simple to use/carry/maintain

    Only you can answer that. What is it that you think is lacking in the photographs that you take using your current gear ? Personally, I wound't think the IQ improvement would be that big of a difference considering the price you need to pay. Since we have so many mirror-less options now, this is...

    Camera Need Camera - simple to use/carry/maintain

    I'd say get the used lens, seems very cheap. I use manual adapters since I use manual lenses with them plus they are cheap as well. I shoot mostly in Aperture/Shutter mode anyway. With manual lenses, you put the camera in shutter mode and set the appropriate aperture on the lens itself. With...

    What speeds are you seeing on Jio?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contention_ratio Since most users do not upload heavy content, the uplink channel is much free than the downlink channel. Btw, these channels are between nodes not between your device and the node.

    How to activate Vodafone RED 60 GB Welcome Gift?

    After I was migrated to the new RED 499 plan, I think I saw a link/pop up to activate the 10GB additional data in the app. May be you have not been migrated to the new 499 plan yet.

    How to activate Vodafone RED 60 GB Welcome Gift?

    I activated it from the myVodafone app. Btw, they did not auto upgrade the RED 499 customers. The old plan had only 1GB data (+2GB for 4G users) where as now it is 5GB (+10GB for 6 months). I had to raise a plan change request.

    [PSA] Don't buy yearly plans from your ISP

    I had raised numerous tickets and hey magically solve them the next day only to reoccur after a couple days. Lately it seems to have improved a lot, by that I mean average 25-40Mbps instead of crawling speed so technically still much lower than 75Mbps but I lost energy after umpteenth of...
