Before it was only for 3 NT numbers but now you can get such discounted calls to 5 NT numbers either GSM, PSTN, or CDMA. For GSM prepaid, the discounted tariff will be 70 paise per minute call.
How to subscribe to the FNF service in GSM prepaid?
To subscribe to the FNF service in GSM prepaid, all you have to do is send a message with text “FNFSUB*MDN” to 1415 where MDN is the NT number that you want to add it for the discounted call.
To add the other 4 numbers, you need to send a text “FNFADD*MDN” to add the NT numbers for discounted calls one at a time, so you have to send 4 text messages with 4 different numbers that you want to add for FNF. You can even modify, delete, and inquire about the FNF numbers as shown in the table below.
For GSM postpaid, you can subscribe it for 5 numbers by sending a text “FNF<space>Number1<space>Number2<space>Number3<space>Number4<space>Number5” to 1400 which is the similar way as before but the number was 3 before. To query the FNF number that you have subscribed to before, you have to send a text with “FNF” to 1400. The discounted call tariff for those NT numbers will be the same as before that is 55 paise per minute call.
The service is already available for CDMA prepaid and postpaid numbers where the tariff will be 70 paise for prepaid and 55 paisa for postpaid. All of the subscription, addition, deletion, and inquiry procedure mentioned above for GSM prepaid applies the same to CDMA service as well.
