    Post Not able to do a 3G DATA recharge

    Hello Friends,

    I use BSNL SIM for past 6 years. Now since our city (Pondicherry) has 3G network, I wanted to recharge my number for 3G Data through the BSNL portal.
    But I am keep getting an error that my mobile number is inavlid after trying several times.

    Do someone has similar issues. Can somebody explain me how to recharge my number for 3G Data.

    Thanks in advance.,

    After entering your bsnl no, select "special Recharge" in it.

    Dear mdheeraj,

    Thank you for your reply..,
    I tried recharging my mobile for Rs 100 by selecting special recharge option. But I got a message from paytm as "sorry we could complete the recharge of Rs 100. Rs 100 has been refunded into your paytm cash balance."

    Can you help me out of the issue.,

    Thanks in advance.,

    I don't know for pondicherry , call customer care and ask them USSD CODE/SMS or else create a new thread in bsnl 3g section (mention your circle) someone may help you.

    For AP circle it's *234# and 123 ( IVRS)

    If Pondy has 3G coverage you can try your luck by forcing to connect (in your phone or 3G data card) in 3G.If by luck you may latch on to wcdma/hspda network and get higher speeds.
    You can not recharge 3G data pack with out first activating 3G in your sim. when you have 3G activated, you can not recharge gprs pack again.

    best is to go to the nearest BSNL Customer service centre and activate 3G FRC may be. calling them is useless.
    BSNL has widespread 3G coverage in all district HQ's in Tamilnadu.
