Vodafone India unveils new free data migration service

Vodafone India, one of India’s leading telecommunications service providers, launched a new service that facilitates secure data transfer, especially pictures, videos and documents, from one mobile handset to another. Called the Vodafone Red Box Service, the service is available at any Vodafone RoTo (Retail of Tomorrow) stores in Mumbai.

The Red Box facilitates easy and secure transfer of data and media files, including internal memory and SIM card contacts,  Vodafone said.

The service will be provided free of cost to customers. Trained Vodafone customer service personnel at these stores will take care of the data transfer requirements of the customers.

Vodafone Red Box is compatible with all branded handsets, the company said. The technology is handset agnostic and can transfer data from and to any handset brands available in the market.

Highlighting the rationale behind the introduction of Vodafone Red Box service, Arvind Vohra, Business Head, Mumbai, Vodafone India said, “At Vodafone, we like to stay close to market trends and customer requirements. As with the rest of the country, we see increasing aspirations amongst youth in Mumbai, to upgrade their lifestyle and have access to the latest technology products services. However, in recent times, a visible spurt in sales of smart phones has also saddled mobile phone users with the challenge of transferring data from their existing phone to the new handset.  Vodafone Red Box service is a unique service offering based on innovative Vodafone technology that facilitates simple, secure transfer of all existing data from one mobile phone to another.”
