India's Vi offers VIP mobile numbers with SIM delivery

Indian telecom operator Vodafone-idea (Vi) has launched a new service wherein users will get the opportunity to get customised/VIP/ special phone numbers delivered at their doorstep. The service, however, is currently activated in select cities only.

The mobile numbers can be based on a pattern or any other significant string of numbers like anniversary, birthday, lucky number, and more. Vi customers can also choose from a list of premium mobile numbers.

“A Premium/Fancy mobile number will give you a unique identity amongst your friends, peers, and relatives, which can be easily remembered. Not just these we also have a spectrum of Free Mobile Numbers to choose from. Your Premium, Free Mobile Number comes with a horde of surprises,” Vodafone said.

These new premium mobile numbers will be delivered to a user’s doorstep without any extra charges, the company said in a statement. This service is available to both postpaid and prepaid customers in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Surat, and Jaipur.

All users have to do is go to the VI website and follow the link to ‘choosing your fancy mobile numbers online’, said a company release. Vi on its website explains that once a user has placed an order for a VIP number, a delivery agent will deliver it to the user’s doorstep and will also complete his or her KYC during the delivery.

Vodafone Idea Limited is an Aditya Birla Group and Vodafone Group partners.
