Idea 4G sim swap procedure step by step

Idea has launched 4G services in many cities and is expanding rapidly in newer towns and cities.
If you already have a 4G handset and just want to swap to 4G sim from existing sim then follow the below steps.


  1. Visit Idea store where 4G service is available and give 4G sim request.
    Sim cost is zero if your existing sim is working.
  2. Please take backup of contact and sms from your current sim before step 3.
  3. Type SIM  <complete new sim no printed on sim jacket or sim card>  & send to 12345 (toll free) from your old sim.
  4. You will receive the confirmation on success with SR number.
  5. In another 5-10 minutes you’ll receive another sms asking for confirmation, just reply with ‘Y’ to that sms.
  6. Now it’ll take 20-30mins for current/old sim to disconnect.
  7. Once old sim shows zero network, put in the new 4G sim.
  8. Select 4G or LTE mode in mobile handset settings, you are ready to enjoy 4G speeds.

Hope you find this post helpful. Enjoy Idea 4G!
