But before you need to choose the plan you desire from the link provided in the Vodafone official website and also note down the activation codes along with other details).
  • After you send the SMS, you will get a confirmation SMS on your Vodafone number that they have received the activation message. Normally it would take less than 48 hours for your Vodafone 3G services to get activated after you get confirmation.

The charges are more or less similar to the existing 2G plan. But video calls might get charged at the rate of INR 3 per minute of call. You might have to change the network mode to UMTS or HSDPA in order to use the high-speed Vodafone 3G services unhindered.
