Mumbai, India, January 15, 2015: Continuing the New Year bonanza that started on January 1 with the opening of bookings for the Redmi Note 4G, India’s largest telecom services provider Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), today announced that coming Friday, January 16, 2015 will be celebrated as ‘Mi Day’ across its 133 stores in 6 cities – Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Kolkata. Starting 3:00PM on Friday Mi India fans will be able to simply walk-in to the nearest Airtel store and walk-out with a Redmi Note 4G without any pre-booking. The devices will be sold on first-come-first-serve basis till stocks last. The Mi Day will be held every week subject to stocks being available.
This is in addition to the ongoing booking process where customers can get a confirmed appointment at a store of their choice to purchase the Redmi Note 4G by visiting www.airtel.in/mi.
Airtel prepaid customers can purchase the Redmi Note 4G at the store on recharging their connection with at least 1 GB 3G data pack. The sale is also open to Mi India fans using other telecom operators’ services provided they purchase an Airtel prepaid (with at least 1GB 3G data) or postpaid connection. Such customers will therefore have to carry a copy each of their ID proof and address proof along with a passport size photograph for submission as KYC (know-your-customer) documents. Airtel stores will accept various payment modes including Credit Card, Debit Card or Cash.
Customers purchasing the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G will also be provided a 4G SIM and will be able experience amazing 4G speeds on their device in cities where Airtel offers 4G services. Existing Airtel 3G users can enjoy 4G speeds on their new Redmi Note 4G at the same tariff as their existing 3G plan, without activating any special 4G plan. In cities where Airtel 4G services are not yet available, customers will be automatically upgraded to 4G at the same tariff as their existing 3G data packs once 4G services are launched in their city.
