Airtel Complaints & Reviews


I've been an Airtel prepaid customer for 13 years,
my number is linked to adhar and all my services .recently I had to go to US for work and forgot to recharge my number for a month and I came to know that it got deactivated . I've tried reaching out to airtel customer care and I am not getting any satisfaction response, this issue has been going on for 8+ months with no proper resolution or explanation and the number is still not allocated to anyone .. I feel that airtel customer care team just doesn't care, if they don't care about a customer of 10+ years nd provide a proper explanation, im not sure why they even exist .. my experience with airtel is very frustrating to the extreme that I've decided to move all my services like internet, dth etc out of airtel .. every time they call me back nd ask me to go to a nearby airtel store to resolve the issue, nd airtel store I visited has no clue on where even to start.. I wanted to give it one last try by posting my problem in some forum to see if my problem gets any visibility but I've already lost all my hope in airtel...

            Airtelairtel postpaid number automatically disconnected without my consent


            I'm airtel postpaid customer from last 6 years. Since I traveled outside India I requested my number to be put on to safe custody since December 2018.

            But to my surprise airtel has decided to disconnect my number without sending me any notification.

            I have never missed a bill payment, my entire family is airtel postpaid and customers.
            My number was a fancy number and without my written consent how can you decide to disconnect my number?

            This is completely unacceptable, I want my number to be and activated effectively immediately.

            I have my Adhar, bank accounts and credit card linked to this number. So it's very important that I get this activated soon.

            I have sent many emails to Airtel customer care none of them are understanding the issue. No one is trying to resolve this.

            I also tried going to Airtel office and when they tried activating my number it's showing "Not same circle" error(You can see the screenshot attached). This is complete negligence from Airtel.

            Thank you

                Bharti Airtelbarred outgoing calls to other networks

                I have been using Airtel for over 2 years I purchased unliminet 1000 on 5th December.everything seemed fine until after one week when I started experiencing anproblem with the Airtel line when trying to make phone calls to other numbers of different service providers. I have now called the customer care more than 12 times and my issue has not been resolved.i was told to top up my line which I did but the problem still persist. I am really frustrated as my calling minutes of unliminet 329 all expired unused and was told I can't be compensated.still even after the expiration of my subscription of unliminet 1000 and having topped up my line I still can't make calls.i don't know what's wrong. I went to Garden City Airtel customer service shop physically on Friday 4/01/19. Told all will be okay after 24hrs now it has been more than 48hrs my line still has a problem.
                Any assistance will be appreciated.

                  Bharti Airtelservices

                  I am currently an Airtel customer and I am getting numerous calls and messages saying that I have bills pending from my previous operator, but before porting I have already paid my outstanding, but such cheap services from Airtel that they are not ready to help me, they only want to add new customers but are not willing to take care of the existing customers, it's a shame when Airtel claims they are no. 1, it's better to port out from Airtel when they can't help us.

                      I have earlier had a Vodafone postpaid but due to the dissatisfactory service I switched to Airtel, but before porting the Vodafone people gave me an outstanding amount which I paid and successfully ported to Airtel, but now I am again getting numerous calls and messages to pay bill from previous operator, how do I even believe even if it is legit? Even the Airtel people are not willing to help, what is this kind of service being provided by operators, Airtel is only focussing on addition of new customers and not taking care of the existing ones, cheap Marketing skills, shame

                      Airtel Secureairtel secure

                      Was using airtel no [protected] since long back.

                      however unfortunately I have taken airtel secure services with my IPhone. unfortunately my mobile fallen on road during taking call and got damaged accidentally.

                      I have register the claim, however being rejected by saying mishandling. As per IRDA rule any damage during usage of article got damaged will cover.

                      I got frustration from airtel secure team for settlement of my claim, though claim amount may not be high, however its matter of ethics. i will go consumer forum and judicially to claim harassment given by Airtel.

                      The irony is nodal officer given same statement and not listening customer.

                      I request everyone to quit Airtel service and use Vodafone

                      I think Airtel filled with business not caring customer
