Wrong deductions from prepaid amt.

I had an existing balance of Rs.12.50 on my prepaid card. I recharged my phone with Rs.100/- which gives talk time of Rs.87.66. The sms send shows that my balance is only Rs.74.71. When the actual balance should have Rs.100.16. . Kindly give me right credit of balance

activation of vodafone live without my consent

On June 15th Vodafone live was activated on my phone without asking me. I was out of town n hence told that I can not deactivate it from there. Now when I call 198 I am being told that I will have to pay now and it will be deducted from my next bill. This same thing happened last month also.
My question to your company is how can you activate any service on my phone without asking me and why are you harassing me by doing so repeatedly??
MY NUMBER IS 9930445535

harrasment by un known number

i have two corporate numbers from Vodafone. all of a sudden i and my girlfriend start getting filthy messages from an unknown Vodafone number. we tried to ignore it but the number kept sending us messages, this time to most of the contact on my phone. the number is +91 9920549763.
I have lodged a complain with the police, however the search result was that this number is an unregistered number.
I want to know who this number belongs to and why is this person harrasing us.

Wrong Billing - 9820109246

I received my Vodafone bill for the month of May 2010. In the bill I’m being charged for Vodafone Live since 15th of May;10. I have not activated any service on my connection. I spoke to someone from Vodafone named Mr. Dipesh Kalre (there may be spelling mistake in the 2nd name). He neither could handle the call nor could transfer the call to his senior. I called him on 14th May’10 at 2 pm. He was to inform his senior and call me back in half an hour. The call never came to me till now.
I want you to take the same seriously and reverse the amount charged to me with immediate effect. You are charging a customer who is not even aware what you are charging her for. There is a strong grievance against the billing system and I want you to sort this out immediately failing which I will be forced to go to consumer court.

Vodafone SUCKS!

Vodafone is perhaps the most expensive and bllod-sucking mobile phone operator in the market. Reasons are as follows:
1) Its advertisements are really attractive. More that Shahrukh or Sharman’s
Airtel ads, Abhishek’s Idea ads or Reliance ads. Worse part- people fall for these advertisements. There’s nothing unnatural about it.2) Their SIM cards are really expensive. I bought one for Rs. 150 in one part of Mumbai, my friend brought the same for Rs. 50 from another part.3) Their plans are really expensive. Think about it, theyportrayas if they have a plan for every budget. But oncomparingthe same with other operators, its really expensive.4) They have some strange rule that a customer cannot activate more than two schemes on one number. So if u have a 1 paisa voucher and an sms pack, forget aboutactivatinginternet or anything like that.5) They won’t ever reject the documents when you’re buying the sim. This way the sim is sold and you get top-up and message balance done. Whoooooosh!!! Its almost always deactivated in a couple of days!Now my story. I’m an outstation customer from Bhopal and was in Mumbai for a month. I went to a store to buy the Voda sim on the first day itself. Though i paid Rs. 150 and got just Rs.50 bal, i still thought it might be worth it. All the documents asked for were duly submitted. Needless to say, my no. was deactivated in a couple of days, citing the reason that my photo was submitted in duplicate. RIDICULOUS. Why would a person submit his photo in duplicate.
And this started my endless journeys to Vodafone store. And to different parts of Mumbai for getting the documents of my localites. Genuine documents. Now their ridiculous claims and problems:
1) First trip- Documents not accepted because the local person’s reference was not proper. Guys, were you sleeping when i first took the sim.2) Second trip- Documents can’t be accepted because the copy of my localite’s licence does not show his signature properly!! The number can be reinstated for day or two. But alas, that was not done. Worse, my incoming was also deactivated the other day.3_ Third trip- Documents can’t be accepted because my signature on my licence and on my application are very very marginally different with a line going in some other direction, the direction in which it did not go in my licence. Humorous.
And here i am. . My last trip just ended a few mins back. and i could not stop myself from writing this long review. But customers need to be warned of what they might (please read as "WILL") face.
Hail Vodafone. . Long Live Zoozoos!

Monopoly of Vodafone


I am Sachin Kapoor,, my mobile number - 9930496936.
I have converted my Vodafone Post-paid account to Pre-paid account on Saturday - 5June2010.
And on monday(7June 2010) , my mobile phone outgoing has been disconnected by Vodafone , the reason behind is given by Vodafone that document name is mis-match (like in my passport name is Sachin and on my rent agreement name is Sachin Kapoor).

My complaint is that i got the message from vodafone regarding same issues on Monday(7 June 2010 Time 9.26 AM by saying that "my outgoing will be disconnected with in 48 Hours, so please submit documents". And when i checked then My outgoing had been disconnected on Monday 7 June 2010 Time 9.27AM means with in 1 minute,, At that time i was in office,, i was unable to go Vodafone office in my office timing.

I also called to Vodafone Customer care,, but they replied that you will have to submit the document,, i said that i will submit the document today itself but you should provide some time to me, because i am in office , i can come in evening. AS you send the nessage that my out going will be disconnected with in 48 hours then why did you disconnect my phone with in 1 min.. then they replied that ot's our RULE,,,

Vodafone should provide some hours for submit the documents, they can't disconnected the phone service with out saying any thing.
Because of their bad service i suffer a lot......Some action should be taken by government against Vodafone,,,,,

Government should put some restriction on Vodafone Monopoly like what ever happened with me,,,because it is always happened when anybody do convert their Post-Paid to Pre-paid,,,

Vodafone always say they provide best service but actually they provide Worst service,,, i Suggest to every one that please DO NOT TAKE SIM OF VODAFONE EVER.......

Please take acion on it.

No response for network complaint

Dear Sir / Madam,

This is in regards to the network issue faced on my number 9819199922 for which I have been complaining since the past 1 year.
I have complained not only to the call center but also sent several emails and also visited the Vodafone shop (Santacruz), to which I have neither received any call / sms till date, nor is there any improvement in the network.
I get 0 network bar at my residence which is causing a lot of inconvenience to me. The address where I am facing network issue is as given below :

707, Bldg No 15,
New Mhada Colony,
Opp. Sunder Vihar Hotel,
Prateeksha Nagar,
Sion (East)
Mumbai - 400 022.
Alternate Number :

I have also requested for a address change to the above mentioned address, for which I was asked to visit the Vodafone shop and submit my residence proof.
What is the need for documents to be submitted again while I have been using this number for more than 2 years now.

Request your intervention to resolve my concern, as I have not been getting any response from Vodafone.

Looking forward to a positive response.

Thanks & Regards,
Kuldeep Kadam.

Lack of Response

Hi Team,

I am currently a postpaid customer with Vodafone India.
My mobile number is 9833439350. This is in regards to an email which I was asked to send by one of the Vodafone executives to move over to one of their corporate plans.
My request was to get Internet benefits with my current mobile phone service.

The first email sent by me was on the 17th of April. I received an auto-response on the same date stating that they will contact me within 7 working days. As I did not hear anything from them until the 30/04/2010, I sent them a second email. I received another auto-response on the same date stating that they will contact me within 7 working days however; I am still waiting for their response.

I am not upset with the fact that they might not have an offer as per my requirements however; what I am upset with is their lack of competency in responding to customers.

great helpline n over charging

i had complaint on 28/04/10, what heppend about dat
May 7, 2010


I am a customer of orange,hutch and now vodafone for over 10 yrs now and have a excellent
record so far. My primary mobile no. is 9820601839. I have never written or had any complaint
till the other day and i feel this requires some serious introspection by the Vodafone customer service
department. Last month, as my usual practice has been i paid the bill much before the due date
and the said cheque was cashed by Vodafone as reflected in my bank statement. However what
followed is really shameful and unprofessional. I was flooded with a series of calls and sms's to
make payment of the bill and i even faxed a copy of my bank statement to one of the representatives.
However on 4th May my outgoing was disconnected. I made several calls to the call centre before this
date asking to speak to the supervisor but in vain. I would get a reply that the supervisors are busy
and will call back in 2 hours which they never did. Following the intervention of the nodal officer my
line was restored after 32 hours following which i lodged an official written complaint by mail demanding
a written explanation. In reply to this all i get is a call from a call centre employee saying that this wont
happen again. Now what i demand to know is why was my line disconnected in the first place when
Vodafone already had cashed my cheque and your team has not updated the same? Why was i
harassed and flooded with calls for a fault at your end? Vodafone very well knows that had this been some
other country they would have been sued for the same and because of the time consuming legal system
in India i assume the attitude of Vodafone towards a genuine and bonafide customer can afford to be

asking me to submit my documents in every six months. even though i already submitted them many times.

I am using vodafone sim from last two years. But in every six months message from vodafone center will come to me stating that i hve to submit my self attested documents other wise my service will be discontinued. Now in last 2 years i already submitted my documents 3 to 4 times even then they are not updating there data and continuously annoying me with there messages every now and then. Last 2 times i went to vodafone office near powai and submitted my documents, they confirmed me it wont happen again but still from last two days i am continuously getting the message from vodafone saying that i ve to submit my documents. Not even that when ever thy called me thy would say sm other name instead of mine and offering me new skims. every tym i had to ask thm to update thr data but only confirmation no action.
got to say vodafone customer care sucks.

Unsolicited calss from Telemarketers

I had registered with the DND( Do Not Disturb) service on my prepaid number(9833167243) in the month of October 2009. I was assured of no telemarketing calls, but the process has not changed, i am being harassed on daily basis from different banks for loans, insurance and various investment opportunities. this is a serious offense from customer relations and request a severe action for the same. I would book vodafone for mental harassment and compensation on a daily basis. request for a solution.
