Online recharge failed but not refunded

Aircel online recharge is like shit, not working fine.
I used online recharge to recharge my mobile with Rs 258/- but failed due to network issue.
I informed the same to Aircel customer care, they asked me to send the transaction details, I sent them, its been morethan 20 days, but they didn't refund my money. Again I sent a mail to them, they are asking my complete bank statement, I don't know why they required that.
What the system they are using very very very bad. Their admin is like bullshit.

Barring of SIM card for no valid reason

Dear Sir/Madam,
I purchased an Aircel GSM SIM about a month ago(as of 16/8/2011)
I had submitted all the necessary documents, but after a week all the services were barred for that number.
I called up the consumer helpline 121 and they told me to submit my documents again.
I contacted the Aircel retailer and after another week he gave me a new SIM card for which again I had submitted the relevant documents.
But even after submitting the necessary documents again, the new SIM got barred within a week, this is most unfair since I had given that number to all my contacts.

I would therefore be very happy if this problem be corrected very soon as this is causing me a lot of inconvenience and loss of trust in the company.

Base plan

Whomever it concerns

I'm the customer of Aircel from last 2 years, i brought your sim for 349rs(student plan), its a lifetime plan which gives me 150sms daily, and one year back i did 65 recharge and i was getting 500sms daily, this 65 plan validity got over on 30 june 2011(one year validity) so it should again be back to the base plan that is the lifetime plan which gives me 150sms daily.. but its still in 65plan and deducting 60ps/per sms .. As my base plan itself student plan.. i want it to be activated as soon as possible..My number is 9738525257

Outgoing calls are barred for last 7 days. even after approaching customer care for many times there is no response.

Whomever it concerns

I am a customer of aircel sim card. When i bought the sim in Bangalore with an ID address of Chennai the local agent in a shop did not knew which all forms to be filled. Hence after some days my outgoing calls were barred. I went to a long way to arrive a customer care centre on Monday (27.06.11). I filled up new forms and submitted there. They told me that everything would be made ok within 48hrs. Today is 01.07.11, 11.15 p.m. I got no proper response from concerned persons. What sort of negligence is this. If u really want serve us by Customer CARE Centre please rectify my problem.

Incorrect gprs billing

On the Saturday i.e. 4th of December, I activated Pocket Internet. And I used PI in my PC. I did not download anything from the wap portal. I only used gprs settings. On Sunday I realized that my balance has been deducted. I went ahead to do another recharge of Rs111 on Sunday, and used the gprs again. this time to my balance was deducted I called up customer care and did not get a conclusive answer. The reasons there gave are
1.The plan has changed. If an e-recharge of Rs14 is done then its only 250 MB post which the data download is chargeable but on the card its unlimited—There are no ads nor any info as such in your site about this
2. I have downloaded—I have not downloaded from the wap APN. Yes I have used internet from the gprs APN. In the past too, I have used the same(aircel gprs) and no balance was deducted
3. The plan mentioned in point 1 was launched on 6th Dec is what was told by one of the call center rep
I made two calls and here are the complaint numbers
1. 1-3206736982
2. 1-3210743204

No Network

Hi ,

Sorry to Inform you this, am the subcriber of Aircel from last 1.5 yrs, i recently shifted to Bangalore from Chennai ,in chennai i used Aircel sim, there network was good.

Now in Bangalore i am using Aircel , i am not happy with your services especially with network, i am working in Software company in Whitefield.
Here i am facing network problem, around 10000 employees are working in my company. Few people changed they network from Aircel to other network, just because of Network problem.

Around 50 new employees are joining per day in my company, they are from other states. assume that out 50 employees you can expect atleast 10 or 15 can take Aircel sim, if network is good.

And also Whitefield is very famous location for Software industries , if we didn't find the network here. what is the situation other locations in Bangalore

I given call to customer care , but i didn't get proper response from them.

Please do some thing to get proper network at Whitefield locality.

And also don't loose the business.

Please take this as a suggestion.

Activated DND but still they recieving promotional calls and SMS

I have a Bangalore Aircel number 8892733751. I activated DND service on 22/23 June 2010 by sending a SMS ' START DND' to 1909. Hence after 25th September 2010 ( 45 days after activation of service) I should not recieve any promotional call or SMS from Aircel. But still I am recieving unwanted and unasked promotional calls and promotional SMS which is very disturbing and annoying. Its my request to guide me to further action against it.
