Operators, tariff news

The incredible adventures of the "Everywhere Online+" tariff in Tele2: do you see the gopher? And he, in fact, is not, ha ha! Trade-in in Tele2: progressive, however, in my opinion, if together with “Combo”, then an indigestible pile of additional conditions is obtained. Another new Smart in MTS: nothing terrible happened, the tariff, rather, became a little better.

So 80 or 40 GB in Tele2?

I have a bad or, conversely, a good habit of focusing on a specific problem being solved. All these tariff giblets are such a multifaceted thing that it is worth a little distraction, and you already write about something else, and a little more - and you no longer remember what was originally discussed. In the last review, I wrote about zeroing traffic in Telegram and took a screenshot of the Tele2 tariff showcase, without even paying attention to the indicated 80 GB in the parameters of the “Everywhere Online +” tariff. At that moment, I was only interested in the issue with Telegram. However, the reader noticed, asked, I was surprised and climbed to read. And I read it to the point of slight amazement.

It turns out that no such miracles happened, and users of this tariff still have a 40 GB package, switching to this tariff also receive 40 GB. And 80 GB from September 9, 2020 is given as a promotion only to new subscribers, and information about this can be found in the pdf file, a link to which is in a small note in the depth of the tariff description. As usual, the needle is in the egg, the egg is in the duck, and the duck is in the clouds. But this small note in Tele2 was considered sufficient reason to draw a large figure of 80 instead of 40 GB on the tariff showcase. Beautiful, do not say anything!

More is more. Pdf-file can be read here, from a short explanation we learn with interest that these additional 40 GB need to be groomed and cherished, avoiding delays in writing off a subscriber. Once I missed the lack of money by the time of writing off - that's it, kirdyk forever to your additional package. I changed the tariff - similarly, the package is taken away. And, of course, these additional 40 GB cannot be transferred to someone else, nor sold on the exchange. Oh, and it’s also impossible to transfer these gigabytes to the next month. I willingly admit that there are a number of meticulous and disciplined users who are vigilant and monitor their balance, but sooner or later the tariff will rise in price, and they will miss this business, then Tele2 will catch them and take the package away. And I’m only talking about those who get to the note and read it, and it’s good for them if there are 20% of those who connect. The rest, who have not read it, for the most part will use this additional package hardly more than a couple of times, then they will run into sanctions and lose the package.

Total, in the bottom line: a very beautiful figure of 80 GB on the tariff showcase and a phenomenally accurate user who does not allow a single day of delay in charging the monthly fee. Is it worth giving 40 GB for it? I think it’s definitely worth it, the operator loses more on delays and numbers in financial blocking.

Trade-in at Tele2, who gets what

Probably, you can formulate it even simpler: “Do you really need it?”. The idea itself, of course, is good: bring your old smartphone to Tele2 and through Blue Birds in Kenya leave the salon for a while with a new one device in hand, without paying anything significant. That is, for the difference in cost between the old and new device, you can apply for a loan or installment plan without leaving the cash desk. And you can not draw up, but pay the difference right away, the owner is a gentleman. You can read the news here, quotes:

“Tele2 continues to offer customers profitable and convenient products and services. Thus, the operator launched the sale of smartphones in communication stores and modules under the trade-in program. This is a service that allows you to exchange your old smartphone with a surcharge for a new one. Due to the redemption value of the old smartphone, the client can pay up to 70% of the price of a new device. At the same time, an additional payment for a new phone can be issued on credit or in installments.

Operators, fare news

At the same time, subscribers can get a discount from 20% to 50% as part of the Combo in Tele2 communication stores campaign. In order to get a 50% discount, you need to purchase two 4G smartphones in one check, an additional product to protect a more expensive smartphone and a SIM card with the My Online+ or Everywhere Online tariff (3 months prepaid) in one from Tele2 communication stores participating in the promotion. A lower value smartphone will be 50% off. More information about the rules of the Combo in Tele2 communication stores and participating smartphone models can be found on the website.

To get a 20% discount on a smartphone, you need to purchase a 4G smartphone, the “Comprehensive Protection” insurance program and a SIM card with the “My Online+” or “Everywhere Online” tariff (with an advance payment for 3 months) in one check from Tele2 communication salons participating in the action.

Somehow, uhm, with this "Combo" it turns out a bit too much. You need to buy a second smartphone (it can be inexpensive), buy an “additional product to protect your smartphone” (a case, or what?), buy a SIM card with the “My Online +” or “Everywhere Online” tariff and pay for three months of the subscription at once (from 1,500 to 2,100 rubles), while on an inexpensive smartphone, which, most likely, you didn’t need in the beginning, you will receive a discount of as much as 50%. For a 20% discount (on the more expensive smart that you originally wanted), you will also have to buy the Comprehensive Protection insurance program. Truly a "combo", only everything in this "Combo" is not in your favor. So, as one of the greats wrote, “Think, horse, think!”.

The way I see this trade-in: I came, handed in my smart phone, paid the difference with the desired new one in cash, refused film-cases and “setting up” the smartphone, waved the pen and departed in my direction. And no compound feed, which is known who is being fed. It's still all right and radically easier and more enjoyable than spending a lot of time and nerves selling an old device. Although you will certainly lose with a trade-in in the money, do not go to a fortune teller here. But a big saving of your time and nerve cells too. In general, they will not come up with anything in order to stimulate the client to part with the money! I remember there was a completely furious story with some, God forgive me, leasing of smartphones, I don’t remember the details of this brilliant project.

Another new Smart in MTS, we are not in a hurry to scold

Why scold him? As far as I can see, nothing much has changed, the monthly fee was 420, it has become 450 rubles per month. But for these additional 30 rubles. (price increase of 7%) added 50 minutes and 50 SMS messages to packages. Considering that the price would have been raised in any case, 50 minutes would be useful. You can read the news here, quotes:

  • UNLIMIT on MTS of the host region (after a package of minutes)
  • 5 GB internet;
  • 250 minutes to all numbers of the host region and MTS of Russia;
  • 250 SMS to numbers of all networks in the host region.

It would be better, of course, if they made unlimited on MTS separately from the package of minutes, then 200 minutes would be enough for a much larger number of calls, if calls to MTS did not eat up the package. For the rest - what can I say? This is MTS, they don’t go there for cheap tariffs.

Willingly or not, I remembered the tariff "VO Smart" of MGTS, most recently I did a review on it. How much better this “VO Smart” from MGTS is, it’s simply incomprehensible to the mind! For 400 rubles / month, it is two to four times better, depending on what exactly you need from the package tariff. True, this "VO Smart" is available only if fixed services from MGTS are available or connected, alas.

Returning to our updated MTS "Smart", I want to note once again that it is desirable to compare the tariff of a certain operator in a certain region first of all with the previous same tariff of the same operator, and only then with the tariffs of other operators in the same market. There are many reasons why a tariff may be more expensive or cheaper than the average price.

Troubleshooting

More precisely, including the lack of such work. A kind person here gave me a tip on an article in Vedomosti dated September 09, 2020, you can read it here. In a note, MTS and Beeline reported about free and unlimited traffic via Telegram. The same kind person gently reproached me that Beeline, probably, simply did not have time to update the description of the tariff on the site. Well, a week later, he still "didn't have time", but that's okay, as long as it works as stated. In general, some kind of confusion and vacillation among operators with this Telegram. In MTS, it seems like they posted their news on September 08, I didn’t see it, it’s strange. Then, at the very bottom of the news, I read that this was a version of the news of September 8, amended and supplemented on September 10th. That is, whether there was news at all on September 08 or it was released after the 10th, only MTS knows. But these are trifles.

Operators, tariff news

MegaFon also officially woke up with some delay, already on September 16, 2020, we read the news here. However, I read that unofficially Telegram is no longer charged for some time. One way or another, the situation is getting better, and, probably, very soon everything will be fine for Telegram fans, regardless of which operator they use.

That is, for the difference in cost between the old and new device, you can apply for a loan or installment plan without leaving the cash desk. And you can not draw up, but pay the difference right away, the owner is a gentleman. You can read the news here, quotes:

“Tele2 continues to offer customers profitable and convenient products and services. Thus, the operator launched the sale of smartphones in communication stores and modules under the trade-in program. This is a service that allows you to exchange your old smartphone with a surcharge for a new one. Due to the redemption value of the old smartphone, the client can pay up to 70% of the price of a new device. At the same time, an additional payment for a new phone can be issued on credit or in installments.

At the same time, subscribers can get a discount from 20% to 50% as part of the Combo in Tele2 communication stores campaign. In order to get a 50% discount, you need to purchase two 4G smartphones in one check, an additional product to protect a more expensive smartphone and a SIM card with the My Online+ or Everywhere Online tariff (3 months prepaid) in one from Tele2 communication stores participating in the promotion. A lower value smartphone will be 50% off. More information about the rules of the Combo in Tele2 communication stores and participating smartphone models can be found on the website.

To get a 20% discount on a smartphone, you need to purchase a 4G smartphone, the “Comprehensive Protection” insurance program and a SIM card with the “My Online+” or “Everywhere Online” tariff (with an advance payment for 3 months) in one check from Tele2 communication salons participating in the action.

Somehow, uhm, with this "Combo" it turns out a bit too much. You need to buy a second smartphone (it can be inexpensive), buy an “additional product to protect your smartphone” (a case, or what?), buy a SIM card with the “My Online +” or “Everywhere Online” tariff and pay for three months of the subscription at once (from 1,500 to 2,100 rubles), while on an inexpensive smartphone, which, most likely, you didn’t need in the beginning, you will receive a discount of as much as 50%. For a 20% discount (on the more expensive smart that you originally wanted), you will also have to buy the Comprehensive Protection insurance program. Truly a "combo", only everything in this "Combo" is not in your favor. So, as one of the greats wrote, “Think, horse, think!”.

The way I see this trade-in: I came, handed in my smart phone, paid the difference with the desired new one in cash, refused film-cases and “setting up” the smartphone, waved the pen and departed in my direction. And no compound feed, which is known who is being fed. It's still all right and radically easier and more enjoyable than spending a lot of time and nerves selling an old device. Although you will certainly lose with a trade-in in the money, do not go to a fortune teller here. But a big saving of your time and nerve cells too. In general, they will not come up with anything in order to stimulate the client to part with the money! I remember there was a completely furious story with some, God forgive me, leasing of smartphones, I don’t remember the details of this brilliant project.

Another new Smart in MTS, we are not in a hurry to scold

Why scold him? As far as I can see, nothing much has changed, the monthly fee was 420, it has become 450 rubles per month. But for these additional 30 rubles. (price increase of 7%) added 50 minutes and 50 SMS messages to packages. Given that the price would have been raised in any case, 50 minutes would be useful. You can read the news here, quotes:

  • UNLIMIT on MTS of the host region (after a package of minutes)
  • 5 GB internet;
  • 250 minutes to all numbers of the host region and MTS of Russia;
  • 250 SMS to numbers of all networks in the host region.

It would be better, of course, if they made unlimited on MTS separately from the package of minutes, then 200 minutes would be enough for a much larger number of calls, if calls to MTS did not eat up the package. For the rest - what can I say? This is MTS, they don’t go there for cheap tariffs.

Willingly or not, I remembered the tariff "VO Smart" of MGTS, most recently I did a review on it. How much better this “VO Smart” from MGTS is, it’s simply incomprehensible to the mind! For 400 rubles / month, it is two to four times better, depending on what exactly you need from the package tariff. True, this "VO Smart" is available only if fixed services from MGTS are available or connected, alas.

Returning to our updated MTS "Smart", I want to note once again that it is desirable to compare the tariff of a certain operator in a certain region first of all with the previous same tariff of the same operator, and only then with the tariffs of other operators in the same market. There are many reasons why a tariff may be more expensive or cheaper than the average price.

Troubleshooting

More precisely, including the lack of such work. A kind person here gave me a tip on an article in Vedomosti dated September 09, 2020, you can read it here. In a note, MTS and Beeline reported about free and unlimited traffic via Telegram. The same kind person gently reproached me that Beeline, probably, simply did not have time to update the description of the tariff on the site. Well, a week later, he still "didn't have time", but that's okay, as long as it works as stated. In general, some kind of confusion and vacillation among operators with this Telegram. In MTS, it seems like they posted their news on September 8, I didn’t see it, it’s strange. Then, at the very bottom of the news, I read that this was a version of the news of September 8, amended and supplemented on September 10th. That is, whether there was news at all on September 08 or it was released after the 10th, only MTS knows. But these are trifles.

MegaFon also officially woke up with some delay, already on September 16, 2020, we read the news here. However, I read that unofficially Telegram is no longer charged for some time. One way or another, the situation is getting better, and, probably, very soon everything will be fine for Telegram fans, regardless of which operator they use.
