Recharge unlimited phone numbers with Rs. 50 for free with Line - Hurry, won't last long


Whenever an application or game tries to lure Indians into downloading or using their app by giving them some sort of recharge or something similar, it is bound to be misused. It's the way things work in India. We can spend more time on trying to get a free Rs. 10 recharge than on doing anything worth much more. I am not here to complain though, instead I am sharing a little loophole I found in the recent Rs. 50 recharge Line is offering to its users.

Line, a major player in the mobile messaging services in India, is trying to lure more users by offering users a Rs. 50 recharge when they send any of the "Line Characters in Love" to 5 of their friends. I, and other friends at my college hostel, have used the trick I shall be sharing below to do recharges over Rs. 1500. Though I don't want to brag (and the trick is a no-brainer), I somehow thought if Line application wasn't tying up our device id with our account, we might be able to perform recharges over and over again.

Restrictions:

  • A single phone number can be recharged only once.
  • At times Tata Docomo recharges have worked, at others, they've failed. All over success percentage with all the recharges I have tried is about 80%.
  • The terms screen shows that this offer won't work on Windows Phones. THough the only thing I've tried ist is on an Android phone.
  • If you don't have an Android device, install Bluestacks and install Line apk on your pc. It should work perfectly fine, though I haven't tried this either.
  • Though this scheme is meant to run from 24th April to 6th April 2014, I doubt it will last this long given this loophole resulting into 

Catch:

NONE! At least none that I could found. Let me know if you found one.

How to get Rs. 50 recharge infinite times for free using Line for Android:

  • Download the Line application from Play Store, in case you don't have it already. The current version is about 18.4 Megabytes in size which doesn't really burn a hole in your data plan.
  • Once installed, launch the app. Click the New Users button and enter your phone number in the next screen.
  • If the phone number you have entered is the one you currently have in the phone in which you have installed the app, it will automatically verify the number. Else, that sim will receive a 4 digit verification code which you need to enter in the next screen.
  • Once your phone number is verified, a registration screen will open up asking you to set up your email address and password for that account. If you are really vella, clickRegister Later as doing so doesn't hurt your prospects of getting yourself the recharge in any way.
  • Now, Line's main messaging screen should open up showing you the friends you currently have on Line. If you don't have at least 5 friends in your contacts list on Line,go to the More tab and add some strangers (or hell, even the official accounts).
  • In most cases, a popup kinda thing should open up notifying you of the ongoing Rs. 50 recharge offer. Either download the "Line Characters in Love" sticker pack from there or do it manually. Manual method requires you to go to the More tab, jump to the Free section of stickers and the "Line Characters in Love" sticker pack should be there at the top. Download it.
  • Once downloaded, go back to the screen where your friends on Line are shown. Send any one of the stickers from the sticker set you just downloaded to 5 of your friends. You are free to send the same sticker to 5 of your friends or use different one each times.
  • As soon as you send the fifth message, within few seconds, a message from Line should appear congratulating you with a link to recharge. In worst cases, it took the message five minutes to arrive. So, being a bit patient won't hurt.
  • Tap the link that comes gift-wrapped with the message from Line. Open it in any of your favorite browsers - except Opera Mini.
  • Enter the Phone Number and Network Operator of the sim you want to recharge and hit Submit. A congratulatory message should appear now. Even if you see a Sorry message, chances are your recharge might still have gone through. So, check your sim if the recharge has successfully happened.
  • If it has, take a breath and head over to recharging the next number. Else, hit the back button and try some other number.
  • Once you have recharged a number, the account we just created for that number doesn't matter for us. Now, we need to have the Line app freshly installed. One obvious method would be to uninstall and reinstall the app. A much quicker one, the no-brainer trick that I was talking about, is to jump to the Application Settings for Line on your phone and wipe its data. Doing this can vary depending on Android versions. Either it is in Settings > Applications > Manage Applications or directly in Settings > Applications. Find the Line listing there and click it. Then press the Clear Data (or Wipe Data or any similar option that you can get hold of) button.
  • Launch the Line app now and get back to step 1. Repeat this procedure as many times as you like, there is no one stopping you. Hell, recharge your relatives and neighbours and long foregone friends. Or maybe stop a roadside vendor and recharge his phone as a goodwill gesture.

Disclaimer:
This guide and the scheme from Line has been working at the time of writing. I am not sure how long this free recharge feast will last, so hurrying up should be a natural course of action.

Do not the keep the good news to yourself. Share the story with your friends to show your support for them (and probably even for their relatives).
