The SIM cards would be delivered within 24 hours after booking. Here's more!
Charges, security deposits
Though Amazon India will not be charging any extra fees for delivering the SIMs, Airtel would charge a Rs. 200 security deposit for availing its postpaid connection. On the other hand, Vodafone is charging only Rs. 15 for its SIM card.
How to place order for SIM cards on Amazon?
Those interested in purchasing a SIM card from Amazon can log on to its official website/app and search for the required SIM (Airtel or Vodafone) and place an order for the same. Within 24 hours, Airtel or Vodafone executive would fix an appointment with the customer for delivering the SIM card. They will verify and collect the required documents for a new mobile connection.
Keep these important documents ready
At the time of delivery, Airtel/Vodafone executives would collect two copies of the customer's Aadhaar card and two passport size photos.
