If your monthly mobile recharges for voice minutes, internet usage, messaging and roaming charges add upward to Rs 200, then there is a way to save and make most out of it. India’s second largest telecom operator Vodafone India has come up with ‘FLEX’ pack for its pan India prepaid subscribers.
Under the Vodafone FLEX pack you only need to do one single recharge and then use that balance for voice calls, internet usage, SMS and on roaming. It’s way similar to Vodafone RED plans for its postpaid customers that offered varying voice, SMS and internet benefits in a single plan.
Once recharged with a Vodafone FLEX plan your account will be credited with FLEX balance. You can then use this FLEX balance to make voice calls, send SMS, use mobile internet or use it during roaming. You get the total freedom and flexibility to choose what you need to do with it.
With one FLEX credit, you can use it for 1MB of 4G/3G internet or send one SMS or even make a one-minute voice call on roaming incoming. For two FLEX credit, you can make one minute local or STD voice calls or one-minute voice call on roaming outgoing.
Vodafone FLEX recharges are based on the FLEX balance you need. The FLEX 275 pack which is priced at Rs 96 comes with 275 FLEX balance and a validity of 28 days. It goes all way up to FLEX 1750 pack priced at Rs 398, which comes with 1750 FLEX balance and a validity of 28 days.
Let’s give you a natural example, if you recharges with FLEX 325 and use for 5 minutes of calling on off-net STD, 10 FLEX would be consumed leaving a balance of 315. Further, if you use 10 MB of data, then another 10 FLEX would get deducted leaving a balance of 305 FLEX. This way the FLEX units keep on deducting as per your usage.

Do note that following plans are for prepaid customers in Kolkata telecom circle. The recharge pack value may change from one telecom circle to another. So do check before recharging.
How to use FLEX balance
- On recharge with any FLEX plan, you will get FLEX balance.
- 1 FLEX = 1 MB 4G/3G/2G data benefits or 1 SMS or 1-minute call on roaming incoming
- 2 FLEX = 1 minute Local/STD Call or 1-minute call on roaming outgoing
What makes Vodafone FLEX pack more beneficial is that it adds more convenient, as you won’t need to do multiple recharges. Like you mostly do one recharge for voice calls, one for internet plans, then some voice cutters etc. In addition, any unused FLEX balance will be carried forward to next month, but do make sure to recharge with any FLEX before the validity gets over.
Also, there is no fixed quota for voice and data usage, its all according to your needs. If you need to talk more use up the FLEX balance for voice calls and if you are on to more internet usage, then use the FLEX balance for data usage. That’s one common balance for all your needs.
How to check your FLEX balance? Well, that’s easy, you can dial *111# or *199# or call 199 from your Vodafone connection to check your FLEX balance. You can also check the same through Vodafone website and My Vodafone App.
