3g complained and not working for the past one month

i have complained many times by now and maybe they knows me by now.... but there is no improvement yet... i don't know whom to complain to...

i m a 3g airtel user through 3g datacard and my number is 9971593945. for the past two weeks i have been complaining airtel people that i can't even open www.google.com and they told me to call many numbers,121,12134,12118, etc... i called them just to be told that i shud call to another number(the numbers doesn't end, it's like series questions in exams).... sometimes the customer people just hang up.... i have so many lost transactions and this adds fuel to speak harshly to the customer care people...

i have called them, mailed them but no use.. so i request people in the higher rank to look into this matter because this is not happening just to me.. it's happening to a lot of people... in short they are cheating people in the name of providing 3g service... please look into it...

3g not working

airtel no: 9971593945
airtel 3g:
model E173Bu-1
IMEI: 354369043833830
S/N: 8CA4CA11B2300168

it's been almost one month, that my internet connection is not working properly. the internet speed is variable and sometimes it does not load even if i have "full network". sometimes it happens when i carry out some transaction and have to go to the bank. i have taken 3G plan and i should get the speed for which i have paid for.
i would like to get the correct broadband for which i have paid and a reliable service. so AIRTEL PEOPLE PLEASE RECTIFY THIS MISTAKE OF YOURS AND IF U CAN'T PLEASE STOP LOOTING PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF PROVIDING SERVICE. THANKS

Anonymous and Harassing Calls

Respected Sir,

I request the concerned authorities to please find out details like name and address of this caller and email me at [email protected] and also take necessary action in this regard.

Billing for connection that was never installed

Applied for Airtel broadband connection and within a few hours, Airtel sales person took Rs. 500 (contact no : 9654907449) on Aug 11th and told be the connection would get installed within 2 days. I kept on calling this person for more than 2 weeks but failed to get any reason for not getting the connection installed. Finally the installation team came on Aug 23rd. Again a new surprise, they were offering me an old modem and charging complete amount. I refused and told them that I need a brand new equipment if I am paying for a new one. I again kept on calling to know the status. The new person finally came and did some installation testing. At the very initial stage when I was offering Rs. 500/- to the sales person, I had asked for 1 bill
for installation for my accounts purpose that could include everything installation, modem etc. Not once but a dozen times the sales person confirmed that it would not be an issue, the installation person would provide you that.
But when I asked the installation person for it, he refused. I kept on calling multiple sales people who had committed but they said they can't help now.

Frustrated with the entire process, I immediately decided not to go with the installation and not to take the connection. I asked the installation person immediately to take his entire stuff. I called up sales person 9654907449 & 9654904911 (other person involved) and told them that I am not allowing the installation person to activate my connection as I am not getting the bill as
committed. They both assured not an issue and they would provide me a refund of Rs. 500/- by Aug 27th positively. It has been more than a month, I keep on calling these guys but they don't respond. Even if they respond, they use foul language.

Another shock came to me on Sep 1st, when I received a bill for no. 844738421, showing that the connection is already running. I would like to ask Airtel on what basis has the connection being charged and activated. Have they checked their records that the connection was ever installed at my place ? Or it has been ever used ? I still have the installation acknowledgement that I never
signed and handed over to Airtel person. Do they have a copy of it that confirms installation ?

BTW installation/billing commencement report, clearly says "Once the report is signed, billing shall commence from the date of this report". Also "Please sign the report only if you are satisfied with the installation". Attached the original unsigned scanned copy of installation report that is still with me.

Still without any proof, the harassment continued. I failed to get a refund of my Amount and Airtel mentioned that it would be adjusted against the bills generated for the connection that never existed.

Rude behavior and non-coperation

The first payment was made thru ch # 67745 dt. 21.07.2012 for Rs969.67 was put in the drop box of Airtel installed at spics mobile shop at Munirka. The second ch. # 67748 dt.17.08.2012 was again put in the same box.

Started getting calls EARLY MORNING from Airtel collection agencies that the payments have not reached them. Despite my explaining my payments thru these cheque, I was given routine and stereo type reply if your account is debited then send them the copy of my bank account.

Refused to listen to my request to investigate why and where the cheque have gone (twice missing) and why have not reached them so far?

Mr. Mosim, the in charge of the office and her support Ms. Nisha on 07/08/12 and also spoke to Javed Asraf on 04/08/12 , all overlooked to the real issue. This made me to pay them thru on-line with the help of my well wisher as I not savvy with the on line payments.

I told these people that I am 68 years(Senior Citizen) and can not run around to probe into and ultimately stop the payment of these checks which I was ultimately forced to do so on 13/09 when none of them helped me. Even the person on the spics shop where the drop box Airtel is kept did not show any concern to resolve it and find out from the boys who opens the box every day.

ECS facility not activated

Dear Sir,

This is to bring to your notice that i have activated my ECS service last to last month from your Airtel counter at Yousuf Sarai Market. i have received a call from your customer care that your amount has been deducted from your bank ref no--44976290. I was rest assured that my ECS facility is activated. now when i have checked my amount i was surprised that last month bill money has not been deducted from my bank. When i have checked with your customer care today dated-070812, they told me my check has been declined(refnoF1099765770) and they don't know the reason. When i have told them same could have been informed to me, they said they tried but your number was busy. How can it be possible that whole day whole night my number was busy. Now pls tell me do i have to pay the penality amount as well, as when last time i have checked with your customer care they told me you dont have to pay the penality. Today i will pay the last month bill through cash./

Ankit Bhatia.

Cheating at customer care

Today I have to write about how New Delhi Communications which is an Airtel Customer Care outlet at M-22 Greater Kailash 2 Market, New Delhi-110048 and how they have managed to cheat me.

I had lost my phone yesterday and had gone there to get a duplicate SIM card after doing the required trip to the CR Park Police station to lodge an FIR. At New Delhi Communications, they asked me for 2 copies of my photo ID, a photograph and Rs 125. I did as asked and my phone was activated. Within a few minutes I get an SMS from Airtel confirming the re-activation and how it should have costed me Rs 25/- only (not 125/-). After another few minutes I received another SMS saying that Airtel Money Transfer on my phone has been activated and Rs 100 were charged for that.

Nobody at the counter told me about this. They asked me to sign the forms and pay. Not even a word was mentioned regarding this hankypanky that was a tie up between Mr. Varma, the shop owner, and the Airtel customer care people.

My request to people would be please be very careful before going to this store as they are cheating a lot of people like this. When we are in a difficult, stressful situation and have so many forms to fill, they take advantage of it. Rs 100 is not a big amount but a lot of hundreds make thousands and lakhs for these people.

unregistration of sim card

Dear madam / sir

Recently, ten days earlier I bought a new postpaid sim card from your representative at our office and I was told that within 4 days my number will be activated. But still there is no response from any of the airtel team.
Neither I have received any call from airtel nor any one has come for vertification.
Out of my frustration I have communicated this thing to airtel customer care but up to my surprise I was told that the number which is given to me is already under service and its registered on some one’s other name.

This is clearly pointing towards the service provided by airtel to their customers.
Being a corporate CUG number our company is always preferring airtel as its having best service than other network providers.

Kindly look into this matter with urgent priority my details are as under. I have submitted all the required documents for the registration.

Name – Rahul Bhatia
Airtel number – 9910022316
Sim no – 8991101202276674233

Not activation of new postpaid connection

I applied for a postpaid connection on 11th Jun 2012. I had personally called Mr Gulshan(Mob No.9810778993) on 10th Jun 2012 which i came to know from my collegue. Shri Shiv Pandey(Mob No.9717132323) came to my office on 11th Jun 2012 at about 1500 hrs. After completing all formalities, he handed over me a Airtel SIM Card having connection No.9971800696 with the promise to activate within 72 hrs. But to my surprise, this number has not been activited till today i.e. 19th Jun 2012. I kept on contacting telephonically with both the above personnel. On contacting, every time they promised to activate the SIm same day. I also contacted several times Mr Gaurav Sarin(Mob No.9871773601) dealing with accounts as stated by Mr Gulshan. But he also did not help me. Finally, on 19th Jun 2012 i.e. 8 days after applying for the post paid connection, one person from Airtel came to my office at about 1500 hrs for verification purpose. Due to the promise of above Airtel employee I could not apply for any other postpaid connection of other service provider and I kept on using my previous connection on roaming. This caused lot of inconvenience and also kept me worried as I had already given this number to my several services which often ask for the mobile number. Resulting their services could not be utilised be me as they could not contact me on the said mobile number. I sufferred lot of inconvenience and was in embrassing situation at number of times. This has given really a verybad impression about Airtel. It is suggested that Airtel should not give false promises to the customers. Appropriate action may please be taken against the defaulters so as to avoid recurrence of inconvenience to other customers.

Airtel Broad Band and IPTV not working for last 1 month

hi ,

I would like to bring in light the poor service provided by Airtel , I took Airtel's broadband and IPTV connection in Decemeber-2011 . Immediately after that , from January onwards , the connection started giving problem , I raised a request for the same through 121 ,

A executive visit was arranged and he informed me that the connection cables , which was plugged in by the airtel person who came , for installation were incorrect .

Later my complaint was marked as closed . From 15 May 2012 onwards again I started facing problem , internet and dsl , were going down intermittently .

Till now I must have called the 121 more than 20 times . Each time they raise a new request , which is closed by their executive without even informing or cross checking whether the problem is resolved or not .

I am so fed up with their poor service and lack of knowledge of their executive that i am planning to cut my connection .

Really Really awful service and mental torture for Airtel Clients .
I would suggest all the people not to opt for Airtel Broadband and IPTV ever, as its sheer waste of money and their service is hopeless .

Please Block airtel prepaid mobile number 8130221484 from my id proofs.

Dear Sir,

I have closed my airtel prepaid number 8130221484 three times permanently from my identity proof. But it is activated again & again on my fake id proof & documents.How it can be activated again & again without my permission on my identity proof? I have already written to airtel nodal officer many times that this number is being used on my fake id proofs & address detail by someone else and block it from my id proof & adress detail and I am not responsible for this number.If anyone want to use this number, then take his own id proofs and activate it on his own id proofs.This is the misuse of my identity proofs and documents.

But airtel is not blocking this number from my id proof.Their reply is not satisfactory.

Please block this number from my id proof. Now i have no patience to block this number again & again.

Please do needful ASAP. I am getting very stressed & pained about it.
