With a portfolio of over 500 handset types covering 30 brands, we’ll be basically able to support everyone across the price spectrum,” added Mr. Kishore


As per Tata Docomo SimplySwap service, a customer who signs up within 90 days of buying a new handset; once enrolled, can simply call 040-66066141 requesting a new swap device of same brand/model.

For complete details on the charges, subscribers can consult their nearest Tata Docomo store or simply call 040-66066141.


Tata Docomo’s other industry and customer centric first initiatives . . .

Tata DoCoMo being a customer centric brand has pioneered a number of industry and customer firsts service initiatives in India; it is the country’s first telecom operator to deliver CDMA 1x technology , a market in which the company maintains undisputed leadership. It also introduced the concept of transparent ‘Pay for What You Use’ services with the country’s first per second billing offerings in 2009 – revolutionary at that time but today widely recognized as an industry good practice.


This deep commitment to technology and innovation lies at the heart of the Tata DoCoMo brand, underpinning its service offerings, customer engagement and – typically – market disruptive approach to mobile services.  Some of the company’s other India firsts service initiatives include:









Editor’s notes - SimplySwap offer details:

  • SimplySwap is available initially to Tata DoCoMo post-paid subscribers in Hyderabad. Under the service, any new or existing post-paid subscriber who has just bought a new handset can enrol for the program by filling up a form at any Tata DoCoMo store. Once enrolled, the subscriber can call and request for a handset swap for any reason, notwithstanding the condition of the handset. A ‘like for like’ phone is door delivered to the subscriber within 48-72 hours and the handset is swapped for a nominal replacement fee. What’s more is that this swap can be made twice in rolling 12 month period. This is the first time such a service is being tested in India


  • Customers who have a handset which is not more than 7 days old and still in good condition can walk into any TTRB with the original invoice. Once at the store, the handset is examined for its condition and the customer needs to fill up an enrolment form. Post this, the customer will receive a confirmatory SMS enrolling him/her in the service & the customer is ready to Simply Swap


  • To enrol customers choose any existing (or his/her current Tata DoCoMo post-pay plan); and the service is available on both GSM and CDMA. The only condition is the handset needs to be less than 7 days old and from the list of handsets that are currently configured


  • There are two components to the charging for SimplySwap, one is a monthly fee which is charged in the bill and another as and when a swap request is made. In addition, depending on the device, the monthly and swap fee can fall into any of five tiers. At the lowest level, the monthly fee is as low as Rs 89/- per month & the swap fee 400/- for the lowest tier. For complete details on the tariff for your handset walk into the Tata DoCoMo store or call 040-66066141.


  • SimplySwap is not an insurance product. While insurance products typically cover lost and stolen situations, SimplySwap is not conceived for such eventualities. The service is designed to ensure the customers receives the same handset he is used to and knows so well; fully functioning and in perfect condition. All handsets are like-new, i.e. either new or refurbished in a way that it is not possible to tell it apart from a new handset. In cases where a particular handset is not available, customers are given a choice of equivalent or slightly better specked products. In such cases customers have a 7 day window to try out the swap and return it if he/she is not satisfied with the swap.


  • All swap devices will carry a fresh warranty of six months irrespective of how old the original device was. During this period all standard manufacturing terms will apply. In cases where the customer is offered and accepts a different device, a 7 day return window is an additional facility which ensures customers are satisfied with the swap device.
