vodafone 3G not working,refused to refund money

To whomsoever it may concern,

I am writing in hope after trying to call you guys 4 times and not getting a satisfactory answer.

I hope you must be well aware of an outage at your end last week, because of which I couldn't get access to internet for 2 days(friday night till sunday). A representative logged a complaint where I would be receiving a call on 15th April.

My internet(2G) came back on Mon, 8th April. Same day i recharged with 249rs for 3G. Now the speed is worst, lesser than 2G network.

I called vodafone to check what's wrong, they redirected me to check my net speed online. Another representative asked me if i am running short of balance. Last person I spoke to, said I'll be getting a call back from technical team on 15th april. Does this mean, I'll face issues for next 5 days and i should simply wait for a callback?

I am a smart phone user, an IT professional. I was calling assured that its something wrong at your end. However, this is going no-where. I m using vodafone from past 6 years. There's no loyalty bonus, no discount and your services are getting worse with time. It's forcing me to port my no. To some other service provider.... X(

Note: Please stop my internet services immediately and refund Rs249 asap. Fyi, i have around 300rs as balance in my account. It would be great, if someone could actually read this and get back to me!

Sub:- Grievance about your Service (SR NO.0000755560, 0000742813)

In respect to the above subject I want bring you kind attention to the problem I am facing for last three week, to locate my details please find my RMN. 9742329363 I have raised a request for a temporary deactivation of one of my connection because my children exam on 17th Feb. 2013 . in fact I am holding 4 TV connection from ACT TV for last few years. the next day that 18th Feb. onward all my 4 connection were deactivated and it was not working for since then. I have informed there to the customer care many time I have called and informed about the situation but it was not rectified and it, today that 08th March 2013 the technician came and asked me to pay the bill which I suppose to pay the bill on 15th of every month the pathetic situation is that I have not used the service and also the service is not given still they asked for the payment where I have not payed for the unused service. So the technician given the option to disconnect the cable or pay the bill there was no option as a customer to pay for service which was not used. And also when I have to give the setup boxes I have to get back the boxes Tata Sky
Therefor Please see to my issue and take appropriate action as Trai gives all the right for a customer
Thanking you

Amount deducted without giving any reason

Sir, I am a Reliance GSM sim user. one week ago i recharged my number with 150 rupees, but 4 days ago i received a mail from reliance(no-53600) stating that "your account is reached below 5 rupees pls recharge". I was really shocked by seeing that massage and immediately i checked my balance amount there was only 0.53 paisa... Then i called the customer care number and i asked why my balance amount is deducted, but they were unable to tell me really what happened???. They registered my complaint and provided a reference number(20090266) I spoke to Mr. AMITH and MANIKANTA in customer care cell and they informed me that same will be resolved within 24 hours and your amount will be refunded but till today deducted amount not refunded. Daily i am calling to customer care guys for the purpose of knowing the status they are giving some nonsense answers and now that 24 hours TAT time is extended to 72 hours. But now 96 hours is gone still its not resolved. This is not first time to me same thing happened me last time also and more than 100 rupees amount deducted from my account. This is not tolerable, so I am reaching you to resolve this on preority basis and I am planning to change my service provider. Pls resolve the issue as soon as possible... Your assistance is highly expected.

Complaint against Airtel

I have a connection of airtel mobile no. 9810240992 user name Shikher Bhandari. I have already paid the amount on their website www.airtel.in and the pay portal used was of ICICI bank. The payment was made on 21/01/2013 for Rs. 2100/- through my debit card no. 5046819036304606 syndicate bank. The transaction id 56710003 as shown in netbanking. I have sent the details number of times to them but they are still not accepting that the payment has been received.

To my surprise we have a landline also from airtel no. 01146529194, they are claiming that they have not received payment for this number also whereas this time I had made payment by cheque and same has been cleared from my account. The amount is Rs. 1444/- transaction id 360007464197, date of clearing 15/03/2013. These people are again not agreeing to the details provided. I feel this is becoming a regular habit of this service provider to harass people and try take more money than actuals. They are threating to disconnect the numbers.

Kindly intervene.

Thanks & regards

A complaint about Bharti Airtel (Mobile number portability for 9871851251

Dear sir

I was a customer of Aircel, till the time I gave a request to Airtel to convert my number (9871851251) under MNP. I requested for the change on 6th March 2013 and my number got converted on 12th March Midnight. I got a confirmation message from Aircel that services from Aircel shall be de activated from 23.30 and Airtel services will then be operational.

But now its been more than 5 days since I am unable to make outbound calls and cause of that I am facing a lot of challenges while facing Airtel Customer care. I am holding this number since 7 years and this is what now Airtel has to offer me, frustration and harassment..

I called up on Airtel toll free (121 and 198) many a times but there's no response from them. As you know Delhi is so much unsafe now a days and carrying a mobile without outgoing is a big challenge. The most frustrating part is that they have stopped my Aircel services and also barred my outgoing calls. I also visited the Airtel customer care center at Rohini Sec 7 Ahuja Telecom but no answer was provided to me.

I request you to take strictest action against Airtel and specially Ahuja telecom (Airtel authorized relationship centre) located at sec 7 Rohini. and help me with a solution

Looking forward for a response.

Thank You

Regarding Pretones SCAM from IDEA_Important

Respected Sir/Mam

Iam Vijay Kumra V, using an idea connection with the number 9705522555
My father and my sister are also using the same idea connections with the numbers 9848465546 and 9848362723 respectively.
On Jan 14th, 2013 i got a msg from idea stating that " Thank You. We have received your request for service Pretones and it is being Precessed. Your Pretons has been activated. Amount charged is Rs.10.0/- for 10days. Renewal charge is Rs.10@10Days as applicable. To deactivate sms UNSUB pci_1_10 to 54300."
But when i tried to deactivate to that number i got a msg like "Hi customer we are sorry the service which you are searching is not available, continue search for other VAS services. Type FIND <search keyword> and sent it to 54300. ex. To discover cricket pack, SMS FIND CRIC to 54300. Thank you."
After that i called idea customer care (12345) number and talk to them to about 1 and half hour for deactivating that. they said that i have requested from my mobile to activate that service which i dint do. The only thing they are activating is like
1. When customer care calls for that pretones, and we dont pick the call also automatically it will take for granted that we accepted
2. When customer care calls for that pretones, by mistake if we lift the call and even we dont talk and cut the call also automatically it will take for granted that we accepted.
which is FRAUD and CHEATING from IDEA side.
for that i have the TICKET NUMBERS like SR130787635214, SR130787959272.

Before when i am in USA my father also told that he had the same problem.
And now my sister got the same issue yesterday regarding pretons.

My concern is that if IDEA has 1 Crore customers and if they activate Pretones for everyone, they will get Rs.1Crore without doing anything and without customer's knowledge everyday which is common man's hard earned money which is a big SCAM.
They are deactivating the Pretones after we calling to Customer care, but they are charging Rs.1 for every 3 minutes if we call to Customer care regarding this issue.
But people from villages or uneducated people who dont know how to deactivate and call or talk to the customer care department people will get suffered from this.

I thought i will contact media regarding this, but thought will inform the concerned people first and then get the solution for this. If not my other option will the that only.

I request you to kindly look into this Big SCAM seriously and help the common people not to suffer because of this IDEA FRAUD PEOPLE.

Thanking you in advance.

Complaint against Airtel for wrongfully charging me for GPRS usage

Dear Sir, Madam

I, Lily Lewis, holding Airtel no 9867550056 which to highlight that in the month of Jan 2013 I have been wrongly charged for GPRS. In my tenure of 7 years of service with Airtel I have hardly used the internet facility on my mobile. This time I was shocked when an additional bill of INR1000 is charged on my account. On going through my phone log I realised that there is a long trail of GPRS usage on my phone which was never accessed by me. I immediately reported this to Airtel to investigate and see who is fradulently using my mobile number to access GPRS. I requested an investigation and alerted them that my mobile number is misused by someone to access internet.

Today after 10 days of my query I received call from the call centre that I have to pay for this money where I clearly told them that this GPRS is not used by me infact I am worried if its been misused for some fradulent acitivities by someone. The call centre person was very sleasy and was talking in lewd and very illmannered way with me. I had no choice but to discconnect his phone and now I plan to go the airtel galary to formally log a complaint too.

In the meanwhile I wish to highlight this apathy and ill treatment that the company has shown towards me. In my opinion they have not even investigated who has accessed the GPRS and a report of which location is this used.

I trust your reputed institute may help me in some way

Balance deducted from mail account after Internet Pack was activated

I have activated the Internet Pack of Rs 149/- on 17.02.2013 and got a confirmation message from Airtel that the service has been activated. Then i started surfing but to my dismay the balance from my main account was deducted. I called the customer care on 121. After around 10-12 tries I was able to talk to the customer care executive who told that the activation requires at least one hour and as i had used internet before that balance has been deducted. I told that i have used internet only after getting the confirmatory SMS, then he transferred my call to his superior. He listened to my complaint and told that around Rs 56/- has been deducted and told that he has forwarded the complain and the matter will be resolved within 2 days. The complain number was CWRCH30217502860. Today i got an SMS that the complain has been resolved. I checked my account balance for the refund of the amount deducted. There was no refund. I again contacted the customer care but nobody was willing to explain what has been resolved. These mobile companies are simply cheating the users. As I am using AIRTEL i can say with confidence about Airtel. The customer care is hopeless. If somebody can help the poor customers please help us.
My no is 9892270436.
