Excess bill

My GSM No : 9867198392 I have vodafone connection with post paid plan 499. It was change from 499 to 59 16th Dec 2017.
now I got bill 5463.95. which was for data usage.
this loot from telecom company specially from vodapfone. I was chassing with network issue and call drop issue from last 4 month.
I complained on wrong billing and poor network services. Till now no solution and compaint was unresolve.

This is to bring to light the tricky business traps of vodafone.I have been using vodafone postpaid for years an on and off been subject to sudden high usage bills on sudden months.
I have been tolerant enough to pay the bills as also the number had other conveniences like calling other in the network for free,certain amount of internet downloads free(supposedly) etc.
This was until I realised one month when they charged me a sudden hefty Rs5463.95 for internet usage.MY earlier high usages usually got unto rs.700 and if that is what the pattern was and if by rules the download is till 10 GB,
Norammly it was capping of 500 Mb. post cross this unlimited with 2G speed. so I could not understand how they charge 900 MB @4G speed.
vodafone should have stopped the connection at and after 500 mb usage or at least by business ethics and principles send me a warning.
If not so,at least the billing credit amount should not have exceeded rs 1000 and i should have been restricted usage unless the credit amount to my internet billing account has been paid.
it is only at the end of month that i suddenly get a bill of Rs5463.95 which is a mere unethical business trick to fool customers and trap them in.
I am subject to the cheapness of a supposedly multi millionaire combat...wonder if this is how they make money...if they get away with on...
they'll get away with this again and again.And the sufferers will be the innocent poor victimised customers who to avoid their harassment succumbs
to such unethical and intentional cheap business tricks of these companies

No feedback

Dear Mam/Sir

I have been regularly trying to send emails, trying to call helpline numbers, several times been to Vodafone gallery, but I am not being addressed. I have followed all the instructions and tried to justify all the required details which was asked to me but seems that Vodafone executives are not willing to help.

Vodafone number 9930590540

Alleged charges Are on international roaming

Client credit limit 800rs

Vodafone claims credit limit not applicable to international roaming

However i was not informed about the same and vodafone has not sent messages regarding such information. Vodafone even went to the extent of reversing bill amount to 10000 accepting the error of not communicating and i have that on record.

It also says the information regarding roaming charges come over a period so they cant track the number while usage is done.

However vodafone admits that they shut my number 3 hours after the so called falsely claimed usage happened and i have evidence regarding the same thereby proving vodafone gets information to track credit limit as well.

I also have a 3 year clean record of paying bills 10 days in advance of due date.
Our family uses 28 numbers from vodafone and vodafone can run a background check regarding the same. The notice defames my credit standing and the allegations are baseless. My offer to payment of bill remains at paying 800rs as my credit limit permits on monthly basis

International Roaming Fraud

I bought Vodafone’s international roaming package for my travel to the United States in the month of August 2017 for Rs. 5,000. I continued to use this international roaming service until the beginning of September after which I requested Vodafone to deactivate the international roaming. Around Sept 11, I received an official confirmation message from Vodafone saying that my international roaming package has been deactivated. In the meanwhile, I paid the bill on my phone amounting to roughly Rs.7000+ by the due date. I did not verify the charges, as I still believed in the fairness of the service provider. However, within the next couple of days, I received another message from Vodafone that stated my current bill as roughly Rs.17,000. I was alarmed because I had NOT made any calls using that phone ever since the international roaming got deactivated. If I had used the Internet in the interim, I ensured that I had connected it to my local WiFi--mobile data was disabled. Since then, I have received multiple emails from Vodafone indicating my payment is overdue (it has been building interest too) and that the current bill is Rs. 28,102.97.

Worst of all, dealing with Vodafone’s customer service has been the height of my misery. Over the last couple of weeks since this fiasco, I have spoken with several agents over the phone that has all provided me with insufficient and inaccurate information. On Vodafone’s suggestion, I have sent three emails to Vodafone customer care and each time I received different answers from 3 different agents – an action that is indicative of the lack of consistency in their understanding of the bill, and the fact that the charges have no solid foundation. As if the outrageous bill wasn’t enough of a nightmare, it has been practically impossible to reach a “senior executive” who apparently is the only person authorized/trained enough to help me resolve this dreaded situation. Every time I call Vodafone customer service, I am assured that I will receive a call from a “senior executive,” but that elusive call never comes. And of course, they have skillfully blocked my outgoing calls. I am more than shocked to see that a fairly reputed service provider (or so I thought until now) could be so unethical and unprofessional in dealing with their loyal customers. This harassment has cost me my precious time, energy and peace of mind. Needless to say, I will switch to a different provider because that’s the logical thing to do for anyone with an iota of sanity. In fact, I will make it my life’s mission to ensure that my friends and family members too never enter into any business with this service provider.

Upon posting this on social media like Facebook and Twitter, a person who identified himself as social media officer Harsh Vora called me. He is arguably the rudest agent I have spoken with. He had a very cold tone and was not even willing to help me out--gave false information as well. Today again he called up, and in the same rude manner said,'You have to PAY'.
This is certainly not the behaviour I have expected from Vodafone. However, my friends from India have experienced similar situations from you guys, and even my UK friends complained about the same. I have already submitted an application for deactivation.

Fake Bank Calls

From mobile number 7808543394, I have received three times fake call regarding Aadhar Updation and he has not disclosed the Bank Name but asked to provide all Banks Debit Card Numbers and Aadhar Number. I have denied to provide the details as my all accounts were linked with Aadhar and with his voice I felt that it is fake.

I have also cross verified his number from Truecaller app and found this caller as fake. I request to please take strict actions against him so that they can not do fraud with anyone.

Charging for data while have datapack activated

I have my datapack of 650MB and the data usage in bill was just 431MB. And still they are charging 1700Rs. As per the service center they are saying u have used more that the datapack but my itemised bill back clearly says that they are lying and they are saying they have charged those extra MBs @ rate of 0.50 paise/MB. SO are they so dumb cant check the actual calculation atleast.

Either the CCE are not fit to work or dont understand the issue. While speaking with them i have to explain the issue several times. The situation is same for last two wks and over that for last 4 days they have stopped my outgoing.

Contact Person: Sameer

I went there since I got assurance from Vodafone Nodal officer that the request will be served properly but shocked to see such behavior at Vodafone store.

Now I have no option left but to port my number to some subscriber who treats their customer with some respect & atleast don't abuse them.

So I wanted the claim the full refund of my Vodafone number which is around 200 since I am not porting myself but being forced due to lack of service.

vodafone internation internet charges

i am using vodafone since last 12 years, and using my vodafone during my international visit but i have never used mobile internet before, but during my last month visit , due to certain urgent reason i used mobile internet just for one min , sent 4/5 messages on whats app to my wife , and for that i got a bill of 7600 rs, from vodafone, which shows my internet usage 10 mb, which is not acceptable at all, i made many compliants to the relevent officer and also to voadone gallary but they are so rigid, and arrogent in behaviour and not interested to explain my bills , if for just 4/5 messages, i have to pay 7600 rs then this a big cheating issues, if i use mobile call which is 140 rs outgoing for one min, n intenet 1 min is 7600 rs, which is not at all justify, now a days mobile company like vodafone, which gives really poor services for calls and 3g/4g services, are not interested in improving their services but when its comes about the charges they are charging like anything, they can not charge such high internet charges from us, also without listening my compliants they stops my mobile services and im facing a hugh business loss , this is redicilious, i will never recommend any one for vodafone and , i will shift to other service provider thats for sure,

International billing issue

I am interested to complain against vodafone for cheating customers and billing by fraud means.

The mobile service provider has charged excessively very high on my international roaming data usage. I have been using this number for the last 20 years and travel extensively with my number.

On my recent trip, accidentally my mobile internet download was activated for less than 40 minutes and vodafone has charged approximately inr 27, 000/- only for data usage for 40 mb download. This is a data leakage by accident, the service for international data roam was not requested by me for activation. the total bill amount is rupees 22000.00 plus the applicable taxes which is much over and above my credit limit assigned to my mobile number.

After this I activated international data for 2nd part of my trip but Vodafone deactivated my data due to credit limit being surpassed. This caused me great problem during my travel and I have paid 2000rs just for 4 days.

I have sent screenshots from data usage on my phone which shows I have used none during the trip, while Vodafone shows usage 40mb.

I have requested vodafone to waive-off the charges incurred against international data usage. however vodafone is not helping. i would like to file a case against vodafone for this fraud tricks to charge the customers. kindly assist with necessary details and steps.

I am willing to share additional information if someone can provide some guide

On 20 Aug 2017,Saturday from the Vodafone Store, Borivali Mumbai I had ported my sim(from prepaid to prepaid) from Rajasthan number of Vodafone to the Mumbai number of Vodafone for that I had to give money of Rs 450/- to the Vodafone Store employee named Vaibhav (mob number -7045653807) so that he could do the recharge and I could use all the respective services after my new SIM gets activated.

After 4 days i.e on 24th August 2017, Thursday my new SIM got activated. But since then this man Mr Vaibhav has not yet recharged my money and is just giving explanations.

extra bill

I am a Vodafone customer since last 7 years, 3 months back I opted a
plan for Rs 499 by porting my number from prepaid to postpaid, as per this
Rs 499 I am getting free local calls and 8 GB internet plan +10 GB internet plan for first 3 months. I have availed this plan in mid of May i.e valid up to mid of August, but now the made a bill of Rs 1103, stating that you have used extra internet, but as per billing cycle I was still having 10 GB approx unused data which clearly states I have not used any extra internet data. And if I consider there a scenario that your data cycles is ended on 12th august as per there information, still than new cycle has started 13 on wards which again have 8 GB plan, So i am not supposed to pay any extra charges. I have a very clean customer record and have paid all my previous bills on time but they are simply fooling customers by implementing unauthorized charges and secondly once you try to call there customer care numbers they put call on hold. I need this issue to be resolved as I am not supposed to pay any extra charges other than my plan.

Mibile bill change of plan

Dear Sir

I have moved to Vodafone as it was offering Rs 499 plan with unlimited call and 1 GB data

I opted for basic roaming facility by paying Rs 99 extra wnen I went to US from7th May till 16th June
during that period I was using the Matrix /TCM cards

When I returned ,to my surprise, my phone was disconnected and I was asked pay Rs 1300 - Rs 700+600 to activate

Within few days, again disconnected and I paid Rs 1100 for May , when I was not in India.

That time I spoke to your customer care and revert me to original Rs499 plan as I was back in India

Today I received a bill for Rs 1886 for June ( from 16th Jun till 23rd June ) in spite of me in Rs 499 plan

Request your intervention as in 3 months I have paid over Rs 2500 for no usage

Malfunctioning of dangle

I purchased at Mmumbai Chembur Gallery ,Vodafone 4G dangle Wi-Fi for ₹ 2700/- + Taxes, I opted for Advance Rental Plan ₹ 2699/-4G Mi fi device free,3 GB free for 4 months .Mob No.9167235892 It was not working on roaming since October,2016.

I went Chembur and complained, Mr Shekar from technical side ,he changed sim ,telling that sim is defective, but on roaming same problem, in Chennai.

Again Mr Rizwan ,Changed the sim and told next time if is not working on roaming , he-will change the dangle.

This time also it was not working in Chennai, when I met him after returning to Mumbai and told my problem , again he changed sim not the dangle.

Chembur Gallery people never solved the roaming problem for mob : 9167235892/9930976026 for the same 4G dangle

I was asked pay for period wi fi did not work,

I got documentary evidence for the same ,I refuse to pay.

Same time I met the billing people for discrepancy in billing, Ms Sana changed the sim

Telling that the SIM card changed by Mr.Rizwan is not compatible

When I was in roaming as usual it was not working It works for 5 to10 minutes some time . I was in Chennai Mumbai people told me to go Chennai gallery.

Then I went to Chennai Gallery , they also changed the sim to 3G ,ten minutes only it worked , they told it is dangle problem and they do not have 4G dangle

I complained to customer care many times, one person told me the settings, it worked for 15 minutes only.

Ms Priya from customer care understood my problem and promised me she will solve.

I talked Ms Mansi also , she admitted that there is technical problem but nothing was done.

Advance Rental Plan ₹ 2699/-4G Mi fi device free,3 GB free for 4 months also not given to me
I am in Chennai for one week, every month, I am paying all my bills through internet only , I am in trouble every time the dangle is not working.
I want refund and compensation

Vodafone Deducting VAS amt automatically

Time and now, invariably Vodafone operator has been deducting amount from my Balance for VAS which I don't have any idea about. Additionally there is no direct way to even speak to a customer care executive to resolve this matter. So many times earlier also this has happened. Are we fools to keep calling them back for the same thing?? Is this a way of doing fraud with the customer without her authorization. Vodafone In respond this.

Harrasment of Customer

Cancellation of Data card: Vodafone Mobile - 9820105123

I wanted to register a complaint on customer harassment against Vodafone India. I had a data card related SIM from Vodafone which I wanted to cancel. On 14-Feb-2017 I sent them a mail saying I need immediate cancellation. I went to the Vodafone store in Prabhadevi and paid my outstanding bill. Customer care told me that they will call me in 2 days to confirm cancellation.

I didnot receive the call till end Feb-2017. So I again went to the store at Prabhadevi, paid the rental and settled. I then destroyed the SIM. However, I have been getting calls from Vodafone and emails which say I had requested to keep the SIM on hold which is factually incorrect and I have email proof to debate that very point.

I have received multiple emails which donot acknowledge the fact I have tried to cancel this SIM since Feb. Now I am getting calls from Vodafone customer care who now fail to acknowledge the payments I made in Feb-2017. Thankfully those have been made from my debit and credit cards so I have proof of payment but am really disappointed.

I am one of the high ARPU customers of Vodafone and am generally someone who would like to settle such issues. I dont mind paying a few thousand rupees of outstanding amount but cant agree to that if its for something I have not consumed (in this case data). Also, there is not a single email or phone call which acknowledges the fact that all the way till April, I have called and messaged Vodafone to cancel this SIM. Please let me know how I can help you in your decision making process.

Beyond the calls and emails which dont lead to resolution, I am surprised that Vodafone doesnt have the decency to check at their end if something has gone wrong given they have been getting these emails from me since Feb.

Forcefully Ported my Number from Airtel to Vodafone by providing Fraudalent Information


On May 29, 2017, My Mobile Number(9891692519) had been PORTED from Airtel Operator to Vodafone. My previous plan with Airtel was of ₹349 in which I get Unlimited Local/Std Calls, Roaming free, 100 SMS per day and 24 GB Monthly Data. Few days Back, I got call from Vodafone Service Center, that we have special offer for you in which You will get 28GB 4G Data if u have 4G compatible Handset and Unlimited Local/ Std calls . Now, They Port my Mobile Number to Vodafone and Activated ₹499 pack with 3GB DATA on my Phone without informing me instead of ₹399 Plan which U Promised. Yesteay, When I contacted ur Helpline Number they told me that they don't have Information regarding what u promised earlier before Porting my Number.

If a Person was getting 24 Gb data and Unlimited Std/Local Calls, Why He/She would port his Mobile Number to Other Operator who provided Fraudlent Information and forcely Ported his Number and reduced Internet Data from 24 Gb to 3Gb and Increases Rental from 349 to ₹499.

Phone Number from which I have received the Call - 7506694091 (Lodging Police Complaint against him.)

Executive to which I talked related to this issue - Krishna (Time : 8:36 Am, 29 May, 2017)

Also PFB attached bill for Last month to know more about my previous Plan, If i am switching my telecom operator, So I need better services in return not shitty services.

Password to open the file - ndiy

I already sent mails to Vodafone but they [email protected] but they haven't taken any acton against the agent neither they activated any offer on my number.
