regarding payment

I used airtel network last few years. Due to my convenient i have changed my network into BSNL. At that time i have paid the due amount which is billed by airtel through airtel mobile app. As per the porting condition if any due from the customer the porting is not to be accepted. In my case i have paid the due shown in the airtel app. After only the number is ported, now i am using the BSNL network. Even though i transfer the amount of Rs. 123 rupees to the airtel money with my mobile No.account 9841720148. still
Airtel sending me a message frequently that there is a payment pending Rs.122.95 towards mobile bill and they threatened me by sending message alert.

Overchaging the Customer and no proper response

I am a postpaid customer with Airtel with almost 7+ years and recent days the service is almost terrible.
My relationship number is 1275804260. Whenever I register a complaint, there is no proper response and they always give us a run around. Recently, I have called them for almost 30 times for a network issue and it took me almost 4 days to get the issue solved. But they are very particular about the billing period and bill payment. I like to lodge a complaint through this medium to notify the atrocious practices of Airtel as a MSP. Thanks

Airtel Cheating and Fraud

I subscribed to the Airtel plan(mob no: 8825739512) for 84 days by paying Rs.495 for which they promised unlimited calls and 1.4 GB internet per day. It is 50 days since the subscription and their network in this locality 600088 is very poor. The quality of voice calls are very poor as there is voice breaking. The internet speed is very slow and videos are buffering. I made many complaints to their customer care and their Appellate authority. They acknowledged that the indoor signal quality is very poor in this locality. Despite this they have issued the SIM to me suppressing the truth.

I contacted the appellate authority and they promised to act on it within 72 hours but there is no action. They are also not refunding the amount as the quality of the service they provided so far is very poor.

Amount debited and recharge not done

Dear Sir,

I have recharged Rs399/- to Aritel mobile no:8248871218 through Airtel app on 30/6/2019 11:54 AM, but the recharge was not successful (UPI Ref no: ############.) after that the same day i recharged the same amount in mobile shop.

Then i have raised complaint in Airtel customer care on 10/7/2019, they took the complaint and give me the complaint no: CONRC20710236977. and they promised to me , the amount Rs399/- will be credited in my bank account (INDIAN BANK).

still the amount not credited in my account, so today (29/7/2019) i contacted the Airtel customer care and inquiry about the status of my complaint, now they told me "the recharge was done that day itself through Airtel app only, the shop recharge was not done, so u can ask that shop only". then How they raised complaint on 10/7/209, it is purely cheating.... please do the needful, and settle my amount as soon as possible...

Thank you,

Airtel has charged for Missed call service

Airtel has charged for missed call from India to Sydney.

I was in Sydney. My wife used to give missed call from India to my Sydney Number. Airtel has charged for all those missed calls. July 2019 bill has come to nearly 5000/- INR. Usually, My regular monthly bill will be lesser than 1400/- INR only.

I am worried why Airtel has charged for giving missed call to a ISD number.

Money paid for new airtel broadband connection but no installation happened yet

I have been asked to pay Rs 2829 as part of advance payment for Airtel broadband connection to my residential address. But till now I haven't got any updates on installation or connection provision for my request and the representative who connected with me for the process was not even attending my call neither messages back after the payment was made.This is very embarrassing for me on choosing "Airtel".When enquired with other representative they said there is no signal at all in my residential area, if so, without confirming why did their airtel representative(Vetri -+91 98408 52306) asked me to make payment and promise installation within a day ?
Now I want my amount to be refund back as soon as possible.

CAF no:- 4400002190
Transaction Id :- 402910191

Please help me to revert back my deducted amount as soon as possible.

Mobile data speed

Airtel claims one of the best smart phone networks providing 4G data. But in reality it's not even compete with 2G speed. When I check the speed test even the performance for email is below average. Then imagine how it will work for videos or any media files. The test results for your reference.
Dear Airtel stop advertising and work on improving your network.

Post Paid Bill for Mobile Usage

Hi Team, I was using airtel postpaid from last 5 years. Recently, airtel itself enabled hello tune to my mobile number. Within 3 days, I realized thru my friend and called to airtel customer care and deactivated. But, for those 3 days, Airtel has been charged 300 INR. When I am asking to customer care, they couldn't able to take a call to reverse and holded in a call nearly 30 mins to connect senior person. Post 30 mins also, customer care person couldn't able to connect supervisor and not reversed 300rs INR. Pathetic experience. Not sure, how they will enable without notice and how they will charge 300 for 3 days. For one month, they may charge 30000 INR.

Fraud Insurance Policy

Well I'm a privilege Airtel customer for last 14yrs and this is what I got in return from them for subscribing one of their awesome service - AIRTEL SECURE

I had insured my 69K worth of brand new Samsung Note 9 mobile in Airtel Secure during November 2018. The insured amount cap set by Airtel was 40K and last week accidentally i dropped my mobile in office and the display of the phone got damaged.

Having the trust with Airtel I filed a claim request and uploaded all the requested documents. Later after 2 days (yesterday) I received a call from Airtel Secure saying the claim request is rejected because it's because of mishandling the mobile. The agent was advising me how to use a mobile phone 🤦‍♂️

I wonder how many tactics Airtel has in hand to cheat all their customers. The subscription amount for the insurance is 99Rs per month. Now imagine what if 10,000 people subscribe and how much amount Airtel is easily getting without any investment. On top of that they keep rejecting all the claims

This is the msg i received from Airtel, I'm planning to unsubscribe from Airtel and move on to Jio immediately

Hi Aldrin, we could not process your Airtel Secure device claim for 98400***** as the cause of damage was found to be due to improper handling. For T&C on Airtel Secure, click www.airtel.in/airtel-secure-terms. To re-upload the documents, click www.airtel.in/5/secure.

Amount debited but mobile not recharged

Hello, I have recharged for 4G pack amounting to INR.399 through online on 1st Nov'2018. The transaction was failed but the amount has been deducted from my Bank a/c. I hve called customer care they told me that the amount will be credited in next seven days and told me to recharge again so I recharged again on next day (2nd Nov 2018)through shop and it got successful. But Till date the amount got debited from my account for my first recharge not credited back to my account. Once the transaction is failed you have to proper steps to refund that amount. 10 days got over till now and I'm not sure what steps you've taken so far. I'm losing my interest for these periods. You cannot expect the customer has to raise a query to you asking refund. Waste of my time and your time. And I already posted a complaint about this issue but till date I didnt get a single response from airtel. Try to be a Customer friendly. The details of the failed transaction status are mentioned below for your reference. Thanks
