Not the most pleasant innovation.
Mobile operator “Beeline” has made the procedure for replacing SIM cards paid, Russian media reported, citing intelligence sources. “Beeline” will be to take the SIM card 30 roubles. In some cases, a replacement will be conditionally free, as the operator will return spent for the service the money to the account of the subscriber.
“Beeline” will return to 30 rubles to be spent on replacement SIM cards only in two cases. The money is returned to subscribers, which replace the SIM card with the renewal of it, as well as users that replace the old “Simcoe” model at a new sample with 4G. In all other cases, the SIM card will cost the subscribers at 30 rubles.
Russian experts do not exclude that in the future the same rules for replacement SIM cards will be applied by other operators. The reason for the interest of operators in the introduction of such paid services is the desire to make extra money.
Earlier the employees of the Russian operators told about the existence of the method, which allows you to pay for the connection are much smaller.
