How can you tell whether your mobile device supports BSNL 4G?

Through SMS, customers may determine whether their mobile device is compatible with BSNL 4G Mobile Services.

Step 1: First, find the IMEI Number of your Mobile handset by typing *#06# in dial pad. You will get 15-digit IMEI number, if two IMEI numbers you are getting displayed, use the first one only.

Step 2: Send SMS as KYM to 14422

The text message must be sent using the aforementioned syntax without a space and brackets from your mobile device. You will immediately get a reply requesting you to confirm that your mobile handset is BSNL 4G compliant.
