poor customer care & dnd not activating

Hi sir

This is R.D.Saiba. I am using this sim from long time & my no is [protected]. It was a very good experience to use you service previously but not now. Because I faced lots of problems to activate one simple service & your customer care executives & your team leaders made this more pathetic.

On 15th of Nov I sent one sms (START DND TO 1909) to activate my DND service & after that I got the time that within 24th Dec my service will be activated on my mob. But after 24th Dec still I was receiving the telemarketing calls & sms. So I called to your customer care & Ms Soma das took one complain (no-[protected]) for me & gave me a time of 7 working days but after that also I was receiving the same. So again I called to the care Mr. Ashok Kumar also took one complain but he refuses to give me any complain no so I asked him to transfer my call to TL's desk & he transferred my call to his TL & told me that I will get my complain no from his TL. But his TL didn't receive my call. So I again called to you care on 12th Jan at 10.58pm and spoke with Mr. Sashnka shakher Some & he told me that he cant raise any complain because it already crossed all the deadlines & want to transfer my call to the TL's desk so I can get better assistance. So I asked him to tell me the name of that particular TL but again he refused me to give the name & he transferred the call but again the same problem happened & no one picked my call. I stayed on line for more then 20 min.

So I need the clarification why your CSA's & your TL's behaving like this with your customers. And nobody is listening to their calls.

I am requesting you people to implement one system where customers can send one feedback sms where they can say whether they are happy or not after they spoke with your executive.

So I requesting you to take a necessary step against this peoples & also please look into the matter why my DND service is not activating. For your reference I am sending you some no’s from where I am getting your telemarketing calls & msgs.

From Dv Rocket (no-52345) I am getting massages & from +[protected] I am getting calls for different services.

With regards

Mr.Rana Deep Saiba

    My experience has been good, I found their customer care to be one of the best in the Industry, prompt and effective. But your issue is quite genuine. For this I would suggest you should have a face to face interaction with the officials, so visit the nearest Aircel store and also carry the previous complaint numbers with you. I wish you good luck.issue, your issue would be resolved in no time

I was used aircel pocket internet b4 3 days, they told me if I re-charged with 98 bugs I can use that service without paying any cost and specifically I asked for downloads, they said its free once I used it about just 8 hours I was charged 365 bugs and im totally dis appointed on this service...

without putting a 00/+, international call was made

I made a call to the number "[protected]". The call should have been invalidated since i forgot to put the std code, instead they cut Rs. 9.19/- from my balance (even though the call did not connect).

I called customer care.. they said call went to Africa server..
I asked how can it be international call.. no answer..
They arranged call-back thrice regarding this complaint.. but nobody has called back..

They are a corrupt company minting money through unscrupulous means.

    Hi, This is Deepak Pandey, on 20th of august I've recharged your pocket internet VAS for Rs 98. But after opening MYAIRCEL.COM it demands for access point of Pocket Internet which I don't have so why can't explore furthur on yourhomepage. Anyhow I've gotten the setting of GPRS manually. Now what should I yield in order to get pocket internet setting. However it should be taken care from your end automatically, but unfornately its an Indian Service provider. Take care of comments and do needful.

    Hi, am mr. Watingna frm arunachal pradesh here. I am fraustrated with d same problem here but with a slight twist. Eversince i recharged my gprs package of Rs.98 my gprs stopped working. just because I overused it beliving that it was free for 1 month as promised. I could not belive that Aircel would resort to such means for profit..But when i checked other phones I no longer doubted the selfish business policy of Aircel.My advice to u is plz dont use any of their internet packages untill u want your phone to stop browsing the internet..unbeliveable? Belive it..

pathetic customer service!

Hi, I would like to share my pathetic experience with Aircel Pune last evening 23rd July’09. As per...

no customer care

I bought a new aircel connection yesterday afternoon.. and they have good inaugural offers here in mumbai.. But i have several doubts about few topups they have.. But i dont think they have any customer care in place rit now..

I must called atleast 10 times and must have waited from 2 mins to 10 mins on different occasions to talk to customer care. IT JUST KEEPS ME ON WAITING. I tried calling at 4 am also and still after spending 10 irritating minutes listening to their crap, i cudnt get through any of their executives. I wonder whether aircel have got so many customers that they just dont have enough executive or so less connections that they dont bother to keep any executive at all.

I am really disappointed with their customer care.(actually have got any chance to talk at all.) . And i believe after sales service is d most important part in any brand. and they lack on that the most.

So inspite of how many ever offers they give, i dont think i will suggest anyone to take aircel unless they give some serious thought to improve their support.

And i would like to know whether there is any1 from mumbai to have gotten though aircel's customer care.

Really Sad that a brand as big as aircel, doesnt understand the importance of customer service in such a competitive market.

I guess aircel should know that only launching is a product is not the only thing a company is supposed to do.

    It’s unfortunate what you went through or rather should I say unlucky... because according to me Aircel actually has one of the most convenient ways of customer care.. they have online cc along with a phone based on… so that avoids any dead end situation…. So, try reaching out to CC through the contacts given on their website that is if you can’t drop by at one of their stores..

prepaid to postpaid activation

I have paid an amount for converting from prepaid to postpaid aircel connection on 1st July '08. Till today they (Lakshmi Enterprises, Coimbatore - Agent for Aircel Limited) haven't activated for us. When I ask for the reason, from the beginning (after receiving the amount) they say, the prepaid number is in some others name, which my wife is using the same number for the past 3 years.

They not even have the courtesy to update me the status at least once in a week.

pathetic customer service with customer care officers providing misleading information

I had been battling for over four months with operatives from AirCel to transfer my number from the CUG of a different company to the CUG of the company I am currently working with. Despite innumerable deals with an operative (who seems to have quit his services with the company), and the other operatives, and the patient Customer Care personnel, no concrete steps were taken towards transfer of my number.

From the very beginning, I have been making my intentions clear. The case was open before them. The CUG is under the name of another person, and I was just a part of it. I just want transfer my number from the CUG of a different company to the CUG of the company I am currently working with. I couldn't have made the case any clearer.

For four months, I have been patient. I had submitted numerous documents and mails from my official ID (as they requested), but still you they did not not take any action. It was highly irritating and frustrating for me. The reason I stuck with them was that I did not want to keep changing my number. But customer service offered by Aircel is highly poor.

Finally, I had to terminate this connection and get a different connection of a different service provider.

    I fully agree with you. I also faced the same problem. My AIRCEL phone was activated after I gave all necessary documents. After 4 days, it got disconnected and when I inquired the reason, they told me that their courier has lost the documents and head office has disconnected the no.
    But, they told me that it will be activated in 1 hour. I waited for another 2 days but nothing happenned.
    Now, I have already thrown the sim card and switched over to Vodafone, which is better in all ways than Aircel.

    Hmmm… its strange how I have never faced such a problem with Aircel, maybe it was genuinely not their fault and they can’t just activate your card without the necessary documents.. soo… anyhow. . each to its own. J
    Try to get in touch with customer care or nodal officers… Check this:
    Or just visit the aircel website and you would know which nodal officer to get in touch with depending on your circle.

    I have tried my best to contact the relevant persons. All have the same answer that they are sorry and the services will be activated soon. Now, over one month has passed and not a single courtesy call I have received from them explaining the reason of disconnection. They dont even bother to reply to the complaints sent on their email id.
    My experience with this company has been worse.
    Whenever I used to visit their office for lodging complaints, I always used to see many complainants with similar complaints.
    I cannot compare aircel with airtel or vodafone. These two companies are much much better than aircel in terms of customer service.

I guess you could try tht.. just go to the aircel website and try and find the right e-mail address according to your circle.. send in n e-mail with the required information and im sure they will respond.. I had mine taken care of behind the computer… so it was the most convenient way …

not yet migrated postpaid connection to prepaid!

Actually, I've been using Postpaid connection... Recently I've filled a form to migrate my postpaid to prepaid connection..
As per the rule, I have to file the application before 5 days of bill date. So I did the same at one of the Aircel branch. (Spencer plaza).. They said, on 19th my no would be inactive and once I paid the bill. within 48 hours it would be active to prepaid connection.. This is what they have communicated..

Steps taken
1) Filled the application on 14th December.
2) on 19th by 8 P.M my no got inactive (as they said).
3) Paid the outstanding bill of 665/- rs on 22nd(Saturday morning around 10 A.M)
4) Was waiting for reply from their end.
5) On 23rd evening by 3p.m I called Aircel customer care([protected])... They said on 24th morning it would be active like that..
6) On 24th I called again. They said complaint/issue has been raised so your no would be active in next 12 hours...
7) Again I called on 24th Night... again they are saying that next 12 hours...
8) It's really hard to hear... They keep disgusting... I would have lost many important calls...

    I'm a new user of Aircel prepaid connection in Mumabai for about 2 weeks. When I tried to recharged with Rs. 30 recharge voucher, it was failed as I got response as "Sorry you cannot refill this prepaid account. Please Contact our customer care service." Soon I rang up to CC and lodged a complain telling them about the problem. As they responsed to me for waiting 24 hrs, I awaited and after passing away the same, I again rang up to CCE. As before they told me to be wait 72 hrs again. Still I kept patience and didn't make any calls and awaited for that given time. But its having problem after passing away the another 72 hrs. As my comment Aircel CCE's are misleading and cheating the valued customers. By the ending of this week I will consult with the grievance cell and if that's also cheat me I will go for further action.

no gprs available

I called customer care (in April'06) to activate GPRS on my mobile, they got all my phone details (model, brand, etc) and sent me the settings in 15 minutes... but I took about a week to activate the service on my mobile... The GPRS Portal worked fine and so the MMS... then, immediately without any information, they removed the service completely... and till now I've been calling Cust. Care but they just say "Upgrade work going on", "Will be back in a month"... and till now nothing has happened...

Other networks are heading on to EDGE and 3G, aircel is the only network in whole world which has not even started GPRS...
