OUR RECHARGES ARE ONLY INTENDED TO WORK WITH PRODUCTS PURCHASED FROM CELLULAR ABROAD.
Although Orange recharge cards can be found at convenience stores and gas stations throughout Mumbai, many of our customers like the convenience of having a spare recharge card (or more) available before they arrive in India. People traveling outside of Mumbai can take advantage of low roaming charges to enjoy their Indian cellular service all throughout India. By phoning Cellular Abroad, you can obtain additional recharge codes to extend the airtime on your prepaid account.
Busy executives, parents who want to make sure their traveling children can always reach them and those who may not be near a typical point of sale find that buying one or more recharge cards from Cellular Abroad makes for a smart investment. If you're running low on talk time late one Indian night, you're just a phone call away from a recharge.
It's important to remember that all your incoming calls are free if you're in Mumbai, so you can save a lot of money by having people call you back to your Indian number when traveling. Also, since incoming calls are always free in Mumbai, you will always be able to receive calls, even if you've run out of call credit.
Reasons to Buy from Cellular Abroad:
- Have extra talk time credit to add to your prepaid account as soon as you arrive
- Each Rs 1000 recharge gives about 44 minutes of calls to the US or Canada. Alternately, you would get about 135 minutes in India. (There is a Rs 126 tax on each Rs 1000 recharge card, so the effective credit is Rs 874.)
- It's the most convenient way to add extra call credits
- Saves time if a point-of-sale location is not available
- More talk time is just a phone call away!
- Our customer service is available 7 days a week
- Any Cellular Abroad customer can take advantage of phone-in recharges
How to Add Credit to your Prepaid Orange Account:
As soon as you arrive in India, simply scratch off the protective panel on the back of the recharge card, follow the instructions on the card to enter the code number and your credit is applied.
To Order by Phone:
You can purchase additional recharge codes (from our Orange recharge cards) via phone whenever you need to add more call credits to your prepaid account. No need to ship you a card! Just call Cellular Abroad at 00-1-310-862-7100 and we can sell you as many recharge codes as you need. Our office hours are 8AM to 4PM PST, seven days a week. With your credit card on file and by correctly identifying yourself, we can process your order very quickly. With the extra code(s), you'll be able to add more minutes from anywhere in India
Your Indian SIM Card is valid for 90 days from activation. However, each recharge will extend the validity period, depending on value of the recharge voucher, to a maximum of 1 year. If you do not load your card within the validity period, the SIM card and accompanying phone number will expire. You may reload as often and as many times as you like.
