  1. I am in USA. I have taken New bsnl sim card to get messages from India. I have to recharge 57rupees on 12th of each month. Bsnl office said me recharge 367 rupees in the month of December. All things were going on smoothly. After 1st March I am not getting any message what should I to do?

  2. I replaced my SIM card during my recent trip to India with new SIM for international roaming (9493511562). However, I am not receiving any SMS messages in USA. The instructions says I should choose a carrier in USA but that selection is not working. Can you help me how I can get SMS messages from India? My number is from Telengana state.

  3. for 90 days in usa which prepaid plan is good for limited calls within usa and limted calls to india with unlimited incoming calls/sms from local (usa) and international call from india

  4. My number Received calls for last 30 days , but not anymore. Current prepaid balance is RS 450. Customer care number mentioned below +91 94340 24365 is not working.

    • As usual BSNL International customer care not quick in responding customer in timely manner. Customer who enabled international roaming, after x days ( example 28 days ) , you have to enable validity for amount of RS 57 again and it has to be paid every month to receive on coming calls.

  10. I have prepaid mobile 9422613592, I have paid RS.57 for IR, At present I am in USA, I can not make any calls. I dont want data but want calling & call receiving, sms facility. What should I do

    • Before Leaving India, you must replace your regular SIM card with International Roaming SIM and maintain main balance + IR activation pack, then only it will allow to make calls, and even if having problem, Just follow this
      Go to Networks > Select International > CellOne and Partner Network

  11. International roaming service is useless of BSNL and i have found customer care service is useless and of no help.

I have even tried international roaming help line, not help .I have also deposited Rs 158 online to activate international roaming

      • I fail to understand why you are asking to recharge with Rs57 for international roaming activation, When I have already paid Rs158 for international roaming activation for 3 months before coming to the USA on 2 August 2020. please clarify to resolve my problem. My prepaid mobile no is 9463124983
