GPRS and customer cares irresponsible service


I am a corporate Vodafone Customer from past 4 years. Number 988611808. From the past 3 month I am facing issues accessing Internet (gprs) from a particular location. This issue was communicated to the customer care team. Till date their is no resolution to the issue and the customer is kept in dark. Every time when I call the customer care to check the status on the issue a new ticket is logged. Current ticket number - 1440422448.

I seek the support from necessary authority to take action on the same.

Worst Kind of Service


I am Rekha from Chennai. I came to Bangalore on 11th November 2012 and got the new Vodafone sim from GENERAL TELECOM SERVICE, BRIGADE ROAD, BANGALORE. The new number is +91 88841 83841. I have submitted the documents on the same day and paid for the Sim activation charge and Internet activation.

Still now it is not activated. I have called the person in-charge from the retailer shop AZAD at GENERAL TELECOM SERVICE (+91 99720 30330) where I have got the sim. He told that he has submitted the documents the very next day and even told me that it got activated on Monday - 12/11/2012 but it was not.

I have called VODAFONE Customer care 'n' number of times reaching out to +91 98860 98860. They say lot of irrelevant things saying simply ''the ball is not in my court''. Atlast after several attempts, they told me that I have to go for the VODAFONE OUTLET nearby and added that my documents were not yet submitted to the company. I was shocked and called the retailer and checked out. But the retailer said that he had submitted the documents to the VODAFONE COMPANY DISTRIBUTOR (employed by VODAFONE INDIA). The Vodafone distributor number is +91 98868 37719 and he is so lament and dint even pick my call or never ever respond to queries.

Frustrated by the worst kind of customer service through Vodafone care, I planned to reach the outlet hoping to have the better service. I have requested for half a day leave from my office leaving out important tasks for the sake of activation of new sim. But adding to the worries, it was pain in the ass again. When I reached out to the Vodafone outlet near FORUM mall, they responded in an ignorant manner. They say it is the problem of the retailer. But I have been advised by VODAFONE CARE people that I can submit the documents at the VODAFONE OUTLET in my case since the documentation is the problem. The people in the VODAFONE OUTLET never ever listened to my problem. They say simply ''WE CANT DO ANYTHING, IF SOMEONE FROM THE CUSTOMER CARE SAYS, GO AND ASK THEM'' . I never expected this kind of irresponsible behavioral from the VODAFONE OUTLET.


Finally, I called up my retailer and asked him what I should do. He atlast gave me the number of VODAFONE DISTRIBUTOR for that area and told me Mr................... is the repsonsible person and his number is +91 98868 37719

Promotional Calls

I have been a Vodafone customer for around 7 years(BPL, HUTCH, VODAFONE), current Mobile no: 9620551983. I get irritated receiving the Vodafone promotional calls everytime I receive it. Infact, nothing irritates me more than this stupid calls.

I have registered for DND few months back, assuming that this stupidity will stop. But, it never does.

Dear Vodafone,

I dont want your stupid offers on Foreign calls, Stupid Caller tunes, and Stupid STD sms offers. Please leave me alone.

Thank you.

Excessive Billing

I had called up Nodal office on 14th Sept 2012 and complained regarding excessive billing. They mentioned that they will call me back on Monday i.e. 17th Sept 2012 but no call received till date.

Credit limit is Rs.3k then how come it got exceeded and bill crossed to Rs.16k. i dnt understand this.
I received msg on 2nd Sept 2012 mentioning that my credit limit is 3k and current unbilled amount is Rs.2942/-
then on 3rd Sept 2012, i received an msg mentioning "Yr services would be barred as usage of Rs. 10535 (approx) has crossed credit limit. To restore, pl make pmt. for nearest store sms STORE <Area> <Ctiy> to 111.
In one day, the credit limit crossed Rs.10k and the system didnt barred my services. When the limit has been set for 3k then how did it exceed it.
There was no initimation regarding the crossing of data plan. How will a customer will be aware of usage going above the limit. There should an message sent to notify that you are going to cross the limit of usage etc.

Refusal to debit excess payment onlie

It so happened that while i was trying to pay the bill online for my mobile number 9986024796, it showed an error and i repeated the action thrice leading to excess payment of 3300. When i spoke to the customer service, they said it cant be reimbursed online and that its a long procedure and would take a month before they could post me a check with the same value. The person named Mohammed was insisting on letting the amount get adjusted against future bills. And when i demanded to speak to the floor supervisor, he adamantly hung up on me. I have been a so called valued customer since the past 5 years plus and this is the service they render. I want my money back and discontinue their service......but the question remains...how/?

Vodafone Netcruise Cheat

Dear Sir/Maám,

I am a regular user of Netcruise-8453709855 for more than a six month. Usually i recharge for RS 801. On Aug 11 , i went to my retailer and asked for low Tariff,i called up Customer care department from his Vodafone retailer cell no -9886613482(Umesh Gowda) between 7 .15 PM and 8 PM m(several time). The customer care person informed me that for a recharge of 348 rs, a user can download up-to 500MB and after that speed will get reduced automatically however i can used up to 30 days.
Then we have confirmed again before he recharge my vodafone net-cruise. However it was not working from yesterday night(because of download complete 500 MB download). Yesterday night, i called Vodafone customer care officers,Salim pasha and Rafeek (Bangalore based vodafone customer care executives), both of them were rude and not provided any information needed. I request you to check vodafone recorded voice calls from 9886613482 on 11th August(between 7 .15 PM and 8 PM) to your customer care regarding Taiff Discussion. I woul like to lodge a companint and expect to resolve this with in next 48 hours. This is a clear case wrong communication on Tariff and Vodafone has cheated me . Request you to resolve this at the earliest.

system of billing

I am using Vodafone Dongle with a tariff plan of Rs. 400 plus taxes monthly with unlimited downloads but at a relatively slow speed.
This being a post paid connection, on perusal of the detailed billing, I find that internet usage time is charged at about Rs. 10 per second
and my total bill for the month of July 12 comes to Rs. 11000 though the company gave a discount of the full amount and asked me to pay the tariff plan only. When I checked up with the company officials, they said that this is the system of billing by broadband service providers. Just because they
gave a discount of the entire amount, that does not mean they can charge unreasonable tariffs. Whether anybody can through some light on the above practice? My question is when they suddenly stop giving discounts, I will be end up paying a hefty bill which is absurd and stupid. shankar

Vodafone Wrong Billing Procedures

HI ,

I was a vodafone customer since years.

Recently , i got a smart phone and i was not aware of data usage billing process.
My tariff had 2GB free and 10ps/10kb after 2gb is crossed.
I had credit limit of only 6000.

Then my calls were barred saying my credit limit has reached and they sent a big bill of Rs.10,800 saying i used till 3GB.

How can they keep my credit limit as 6000 and allow me to bill till 10,800rs.??

I have been getting calls that i will recieve legal notice if I do not pay and i was very disturbed as no vodafone cutomer care answered my queries properly.

I finally paid 10,800rs to vodafone and switched to Airtel.

My vodafone number was 9916176068.

I request you to please look into this complaint and help me get back my money from vodafone.
My credit limit is 6000rs which means maximum for a month i would pay vodafone Rs.6000.
BUt they have taken Rs,10,800 from me which is truly wrong from there end.

I am shocked myself that i had to pay 10,800 for one month of usage and i badly need your help.

I will wait for your response.
