Unfair Billing

I am using t 4 GB plan Dongle no: 9148451089. Though I dont use full 4 GB its billed for
whole 4GB and I had to pay 800 rs per month. So I didnt pay the last months
bill. And my number was barred.

Atlast I decided to pay the Bill and convert the postpaid no. to prepaid no.

I payed the Bill on 30/04/2016 and it was debarred. I didn't use the Dongle the
whole month not even 1GB. But when I went Airtel showroom(04/05/2016) to change it to
prepaid. I came to know that again my Bill was 800rs which was active just for
2 days which data I didnt use.

I called customer care but of no use.

Please help me what I should do in this case.

ISP down?

So,I've been using this Airtel 3g dongle(8474077044) for like 2 years,and so far,it was working like a charm. But for the last several days,it's only getting EDGE and not HSPA, even after recharging 2 GB of 3g data.

Hope it gets resolved soon!

Poor Airtel network

There is a Airtel BTS at Hatikhal of Cachar District. I always work with a 3g Hawaui dongle. But for a week or long, there is no Airtel network even in the range of 500 meters west of the BTS. While, east, south and north side are covered well by the BTS. I request to look into the matter.

3g dongle issue-bad response

hi , I bought airtel 3g dongle..still 20 days worked well.. suddenly it struck up....and from that it not working.. it shows that not registered ,sim card initialization failed messages... while I complained to the showroom which I bought the device is not good...they didn't respond as well...very worst and they make me irritating by their irresponsible replys.... I seriously decided to drop out the Airtel networks like my airtel dongle,my mobile airtel sim too......the showroom peoples are only concentrate in selling products.... they don't care about the customers....

Dongle is not working

My Sim no. is 9004676241, its not working since last 4-days. Have made complaints and i was promised that the issue will be resolved in 24 hrs. But don't know from where those 24 hrs to count from…..Customer service is worst. once you call you will not get the answer in the language you selected. for any question they will ask to hold…..but you will not get revert unless you disconnect the call after memorizing the artel music.
Any chance of improvement…..
Will my complaint be resolved???

it is totaly waste to purchase a airtel wi-fi dongle.beacause when you will use it in computer it disconnects automaticly in every 10 minutes.and the offer that was provided on the dongle was unable to avail that.because customer care will denied to any offer to avail.so i suggest don't buy it.it is useless.

Unhappy with Airtel wifi dongle (accenture corporate plan) - 9004026792

Hi Team,

My Airtel wifi dongle (accenture corporate plan) 9004026792 which I purchased in Jan’15 wasn’t functional after few days of purchase. I informed the helpsdesk at Accenture Sakinaka office, also called the online customer care and tried to resolve by resetting the pin many times but there was no progress. Later they asked me to go to the airtel gallery and get the device checked, I went to chakala Airtel gallery where they checked and confirmed that the device is faulty.

Moreover I have received the airtel bill from 23rd Jan’15 to 22nd Feb’15 which I wont pay as I haven’t used the device as it was not functional for the entire month.

I have wasted a whole month on follow up calls and trips to the Airtel gallery and my issue stands unresolved. How would I get my money reimbursed for the travel trips to the gallery and my loss of work which goes unpaid.

I would like to keep you all informed that I would not be paying the Airtel bills which I have received due to the degraded quality of service I have received by Airtel. I had already informed you all in my earlier mail that my Airtel dongle was not functional post purchase and yet I have been receiving the bills.

Kindly stop sending reminders for Bill payment.

Meanwhile I have been speaking to your team POC Mr Nilesh for the refund of my Airtel Dongle money, its been over 3 weeks and I only keep getting new dates for the refund process.

This is really annoying and getting out of limits.

I do not want a new dongle as I am not willing to continue the service with Airtel, please let me know the date by when I will receive my refund of Rs 1600 for the money I paid to purchase this dongle.

If I do not hear from you guys I will be reaching out to the customer court for the speedy solution.

Daylight robbery by Dish TV

I took a Dish TV HD connection on the 18th of February. It stopped working altogether on the 28th morning. After about 10 complaints lodged with Dish TV, they informed me they would send someone definitely on the same day.Of course they did not. After many more calls they told me in the evening that the technician is not available and they would send a person the following day.
The same process continued and I still have not got my connection back. When I asked them to refund the money, Ms Revathi ( mob no. 7200155555)who handled the call told me they would give it back. The next day when I called her about it, she informed me that she promised me a refund just so that I would not keep calling them up for service, and they would not refund. So now I have paid for a connection without any service at all. The Dish TV set top box has not been working since the past 6 days.
