Vodafone Services

I am using the vodafone number 9899865765 since last 3 yers. The time when i wanted to convert my number from post paid to pre paid, the people (both the customercare executives and people from vodafone stores of lajpat nagar and south extension) maid me cried. I have submitted my request from 25th of July 2010 and today is 3rd Aug 2010 and after submitting every documents and clearing the outstanding amount the number has not been activated. They used to change their statements and its been 30times i used to call them and got different answers each time from each of the customer care executives. Many a times they put my call on hold and disconnected the calls. I have missed many important calls and also the things i have ordered throug courior. Its just a mental torture and harrasment.

Submitted Documents however the numbers are not being displayed in my cell, it shows as unknown


It has been multiple times that I have called to check why no numbers are displayed on my cell, any incoming calls are displayed as "Unknown". I found that the documents are not being submitted.

I spoke to my vodafone dealer also and he did submit the documents to his vodafone agent. I called the customer service team, however I found that their is a "BIG COMMUNICATION" gap.

They repeated themselves numerous times without even bothering to what am I saying on the other end. When asked for a supervisor, gave a lame excuse that they were not around, which I figured out that it was a lie.

Please address the customer's concern effectively as even I deal with customers..and the way they behaved was rude and unsatisfactory.Please increase the number of good associates and please solve my query fast.

My mobile no. with Vodafone is 9711165399 with a credit limit of Rs. 1200/- . I have taken talk plan of Rs. 325. My normal usage is around 800-1000/- per month. Last month, I bought a sms pack of Rs. 125/- by which my sms rate became 1 paise per sms ( local as well as national ) for unlimited number of sms.

However, when I send any sms, I am being billed Rs. 1.50 (National) or 60 paise (Local) per sms based on the earlier tariff before I bought the sms pack. This resulted in my credit limit getting exhausted in 10 days and I am being pressurised for making interim payment to keep my number alive. As explained by their call centre executives, the discount will be allowed on the billing date i.e. the last day of my billing cycle. THIS AMOUNTS TO UNFAIS BILLING PRACTICES. This can be better ubnderstood by the folowing example :

Number of national sms sent every day : 1000
Billed amount @ 1.50 per sms : 1500/-

Every day, credit limit gets exhausted and I am required to deposit 1500/- every day to keep my phone working if I accept their advice. Suppose I do so, then

number of sms sent by me in 30 days : 30000
total billed amount @ 1.50 per sms : 45000/- deposited by me as above
On the billing date , since my sms rate is actually just 1 paise per sms, vodafone will allow a discount of Rs. 44700/- in my bill and only 300/- will be charged from me for 30000 sms. However, my 44700/- has gone to Vodafone and will now be slowly adjusted in my subsequent bills.

Believe, your good self has got to the bottom of the issue . Now my outgoing has been disconnected and the call center of Vodafone ( 198) is adament that I must deposit the money to keep my phone working . As explained above, this excessd debit is just an imaginary debit in my account hence your intervention is very humbly solicited to remove such anti-customer and illogical billing practices.

Thanks and regards

Poor Indoor connectivity

Dear Sir/Madam,

This is in reference to my Vodafone relationship number 1.10172814.

I would like to bring to your kind attention that we are facing problem with Vodafone connectivity at our residence C Block Sarita Vihar New Delhi 110044.

Indoor Connectivity problem is an old problem in this area and have been repeatedly requesting your company to please get it improved.Every time what i get is your sincere apology for the inconvenience ant the matter is transfered to the technical team. This Team will turn up after 3/4 Mths. and will visit my premises with there testing equipment. They confirm the same that indoor connectivity is almost 1point which is very low.

What i get from that is that they are on the job to get it rectified but till to date after my continuous complaints of 5 yrs. still no improvement is there in the indoor connectivity only the Company keeps on changing hand from one Corporate group to the other.

I further request you to look into the matter ASAP else this time i will be forced to change my service provider.

MCI activation without approval

MCI alerts got activated without my permission. Neither did I receive any call from them. Only received a sms on the same. Neither I know what MCI is nor I wish this service.

Vodafone - kindly rule your executives who are dpoing things without permission of the customer - or many will discontinue services from you because of these issues.

Deactivating caller tunes

I activated the vodafone caller tune a few months ago and since then i hav tried thousands of time in sending requests for deactivation but all my efforts went in vain. When i also talked to customer care IVR service but every time though they promised to deactivate the callertune but nothing happened. Rather they blocked the IVR service from my no. Every month they are charging for an unwanted service.
I would like the caller tune to be stopped immediately. My phone number is 9711868096

Calle Tune

Dear Sir,
My caller Tune is unfortunately changed without my prior permission or confirmation.While contacting at 111 on 28th April 2010 at about 12.40pm,response I got is very unsatisfactory.One of the executives told me that you have pressed digits like*...,to change my callet tune.I am very confident and I am the exclusive user of the Mobile Phone and it is handelled by me O N LY.., in any case it is totally impossible.He nusencely and unnecessarily argued.The way of talking to the customer in such a competative market by the executive in no case is acceptable.
Futher tried to contact senior executive they put me on hold for more then 07 minutes!!!!!!.Finally again there was no response!!Ultimately there was not sufficient time to talk to him I disconnected the phone.
I my self feel that I am cheated and harassed by the Vodafone services.THEY MADE ME UNHAPPY rather than they say HAPPY TO HELP!!!!!!!!!At last I sent arequest to de activate my changed CT on 29th April 2010.
This to request that my favourite set CT of GAYATRI MANTRA(subssription charges I am already paying) is to be activated without putting extra financial burden and charges for the changed CT is not to be charged in the next any of the bills for which the payment is due.
Thanks & Regards,

Services Barred!

Hi All,

Sadly, I've to take other routes to get some resolutions.

My name is Gurpreet and i'm dealing with Vodafone Care for a while now and getting nowhere. I paid my complete Mobile Bill on the 13th of April, 2010 for the billed amount and still my services are barred against the fact that my Payment DOES NOT reflect on my account.

Despite of numerous attempts and irritating calls from Vodafone Care and Collection teams, they've not been able to figure out where that money is lost.

I made the payment to an executive who came to my place to collect the payment and now i'm getting a strong feeling that he was a fraud.

Inspite of numerous attempts made, i'm the one who is suffering even after making the payments.

Does any one have any idea how to mold this issue towards a resolution?????

Warm Regards
