No end call details & manual functions not work as suggested by Airtel

1. no end call details r found on prepaid Airtel mobile no. 9892092565

2. After end of call, no details of time talked for & amount deducted which was previously available by default

3. on failure of end call details, Airtel suggested to make use of their manual option *121*51# to know many things (!!)

4. option no. 7 of *121*51# is for knowing last 5 out going calls made, but it also give false informations that no call details r found for past 72 hours (!!) even, out going calls are made by 72 hours

5. no sincere support of Airtel team even after lapse of long period of above 1 monts

Internet related

with your Airtel App I availed Rs.244 Internet plan which includes 70GB data for 70 days, 1GB/day and free Airtel to Airtel call.
but this plan worked only for the 1st 2 days and eventually my net balance became zero the 3rd day.
And we don't have any customer care number to directly talk to your representatives.
This is so annoying, could you help.?

MNP within Airtel

I had requested for porting my Airtel Maharashtra number to Airtel Noida Circle on last Tuesday i.e. on 18.07.2017 via Airtel Store Sector 12 Noida.
I had received a message stating that your current Airtel will loose it's network and then you need to insert your new Airtel SIM card and which shall be activated by 22.07.2017 before 22:30. As per that, I inserted my new SIM card and it's not showing any network.
I'm not even able to call customer care services due to this nonsense.
Kindly do the needful at the earliest.

wrongly charged

Dear Sir this is S.K Mukherjee my cell no is 9126160062 i am a airtel prepaid customer.I have recharged for Rs 78 on 11-Nov-2016 but it shows MRP Rs:78,PF:67.83,STax:Rs 10.17,Talktime:Rs 0.00.My balance remained same with no additional talk time.There was no mention of any special recharge as i thought it as a regular recharge so i opted for this e-recharge.I request you to kindly look in this matter and resolve it as i have opted for this plan for regular talk time rather than PF which it is showing currently.
Requesting you to look at this matter and resolve this as soon as possible.

Thanking You

Non Activation of Sim Card

I have applied for Mobile Number portability on my number 9950247528 from Reliance to Airtel. But even after 3 days of release of service by the old telecom company the new telecom operator Airtel has not started services. I have sent my documents twice . Even after multiple requests/complaints/remainders they have not solved my problem which is leading me to mental agony. If this is the kind of their service I would like to discontinue their service and move towards another operator.

Unfair trade - deducting money on its own

Airtel on its own activated fashion services and follow all services. Decucting money on its own. When i contacted airtel person he says i clicked ad during browsing. I m a computer person. It s highly impossible for me to click unwarranted ads. They think i m a fool.

services without user approval
This is so frustrating and I can see this is not the first time one is facing the issue.
Airtel is bound to stop such fraudulent activities.
As a service provider, Airtel should atleast take responsibility for this and stop this complaint
