Airtel - Bangalore / please never take airtel connection or you will be in great trouble!

1 India Review updated:

First of all I want to say never take Airtel connection at least in Bangalore.

I took Airtel Pre-Paid connection 15 days back, I submitted all required documents to that dealer only,then after one week I came to know that my documents are not with Airtel people that is why my Outgoing are barred.

I went to that dealer he told me no its not like that, and he told me that he had submitted those documents on the very next day.

Then I went to one Airtel Outlet and I submitted all the required documents again last week only.

But yesterday I came to know that again my outgoing are barred as my documents didn't reached there.

Its really bad.Whenever I call to customer care people they were like "Mam we can't help you in this and you have to resubmit your documents"

I personally advice everyone not even think to take this stupid AIRTEL connection.

    it's regarding broadband connection, i have paid 4000/- rs towards 6 month brodband connection plan. and i have informed them all the prerequisite like i am shifting my place to confirm feasiblity and other issue they have oked that.
    once i shifted feasiblity problem and they are not refunding my 4000/- rs. first they told 45 days settelment.they have taken modem and insstruments also but after that no response. customer care telling we can't help it or simmply we will talk to our manager.

    Please unite and try to close the bussiness of airtel aat least avoid by ssome count.

    I too have my complaints against Airtel. With no ethics in place the company only aims to trick you for your money. Lately, I started receiving sms claiming that I have been charged for downloading wallpapers and games which took me by surprise and i called up 121 at once and was assured by the team that the matter will be looked on to once the bill is generated. When i received the bill i was surprised to see that i was charged rs 784 for these value added services. What was really frustrating that they refused to take any responsibility and i am being compelled to pay these charged or else they will forfeit my account. Considering that my account may have been compromised i even requested for an investigation and providing me with an IMEI info of teh phone they have received these download requests from which was turned down by them with no valid explanations.
    I am really disgusted with their work ethics and the customer service attitude. I have decided to switch my service no matter how inconvinient it may be but i am not going to give in.

    I had the same problem with Reliance...same story repaeted submitted all my documents to agent, sim was activated and worked for 3 days and then both incoming & outgoing was suspended as Relaince didnot have the necessary updates in system. After repeatedly calling Reliance Customer Service ...which too sucks...they will try and convince that everything on the earth is wrong except them and their hands are tied...agent is completely unhelpful as they have no responsibility once they forward the same story...every time you contact Reliance customer service they give you new complaint number and need 3 days to resolve...when you ask to be connected to senior officer, either they drop the call and just forward to fellow officer...after 4 days of running pillar to post still my connection is not activated...I'm not sure what to do now.

    Airtel in Banglore is horrible - The customer care does not take any responsibility to help the customer. This happens only in Banglore, They are rude to clients and do not respond in a professional manner.

    I had an instance were a lady from Airtel calls me to submit my documents for Pre - Paid connection at Banglore. Prior to her call I have already submitted my documents personally at the Outlet.

    I had to make more than 5 visits standing at the queue for my Pre- Paid connection and then I receive a call for the submission of the docs otherwise the calls will be barred, I explained the situation to the Customer Service lady, She replied me Its your headache and not my headache.

    Is this way to handle a client... not matter Airtel does lot of business but they have employees who speak without respect.

    Please do not take any connections with Airtel.

    I strongly favour the point that Airtel services are not upto the mark.
    I have been using Airtel postpaid for last 1.5 yr. I migrated my number to pre-paid.
    It gave me lot of trouble.
    First of all, biling date problem, then deposit refund problem, and after 2 hours of time which i wasted at customer care center, they agreed to migrate my number.
    I submitted all releavnt docs.
    After a week, OUTGOING BARRED: Reason- Documents not submitted!
    (If not coustomer care centers, who else you will trust for submitting documents)

    I again submitted documents.It went well for 1 and half week. Now, INCOMING BARRED : Reason- Document mismatch.

    I don't understand, why they need to have so much of checks for an existing customer.
    Its forcing me to change my number.

    It really sucks...

    hi guys, i have a tataindicom wi max connection at ~700/month [ i get three month pack for ~2100
    in my area, its quite fine, and seldome i get some issue.
    i am using it for one and a half year, and customer care is also not so bad ..

    if you have not taken any other connection you can try it ... i dont remember, but i guess, either there is no installation charges or some 500 rupees of charges ..
    the packs are on monthly basis and 3 month basis, so in cae, you dont like, you can disconnect anytime ...

    one of my friend also faced this customer care issue with aritel, and i want to ### that guy ...
    in case anyone of you have some contact number of higher officials in airtel, let me know .. or if there are some other gov / non gov agencies to handle this, please pass the inforamtion ..

    i believe, if these junk guys are not ###ed properly, the same thing will continue and will worsten in situation...

    Airtel customer care is the worst i have ever faced in y career. No sin if i curse the entire people in Airtel. Nobody deserve to continue their work, the way they behave and talk to customers. There is no escalation point i was surprised when the same person handled the calls for issues to Nodal as well as Appelate officers. When asked the people are so rude i feel like screwing their tongue the way they respond. I am still waiting for my deposit refund even after two months as i still get to here that it is under processing and no end to it as each time i have to explain the issue to the new person and the new person gives me only dates and no solution.

    I had requested for a migration of Prepaid to Postpaid connection on Jan 31st 2009 at the Airtel office on Airport Road Bangalore.
    As per procedure all necessary documents were submitted and the payment made. The sim card was supposed to be activated in 48 hours, or so I was told. After 5 days, when I called Airtel office, they said that their "server was down" and so the processing could not be done. They would need another 4 days to do it. After 4 days, it was still not done. I went to the office and found that my application was lying on the desk of the person who was working on it. They had "forgotten" about it and was working on it. Another 2 days. When it was still not done, I called the nodal officer. The nodal office is another place of chaos and they have absolutely no co ordination in their work. The office closes by 5 pm and everyday there is a new person answering the call who has no idea what the other person has been doing. I did not see much hope there. On Feb 12th, I went to the office again and this they told me they had "lost the documents" and I should be submitting these again. The person handling my documents had not come to the office for three days and the others had no clue as to where he had kept my documents. In fact, they were not able to trace him at all. I had requested for my money back as I dont have any more faith in these people. They convinced me an executive will be there at my place first thing in the morning next day to collect these docs. No one came. I am writing this complaint more out of disappointment than frustration. I work in a mobile phone service provider company and it is very sad to see the difference in service standards with our Indian counterpart.

    Airtel really really really SUCKS. I just wish I had used any other service provider. I have Postpaid mobile connection, WiFi, DSL and landline all by Airtel. Now I realize HOW STUPID I WAS. Whenever there is a deadline for paying my bills. Their site do not work and I happen to pay late fees. This happens very frequently. I raised my voice to customer support. They suggested me some dumb options like some sites I don't want to trust or pay some bucks for getting my bill paid or something like that. In short, there are some dumbs sitting out their on the name of customer support.

    Guys... just think 1000 times before you choose for any Airtel services. Don't be fooled by looking at good brand ambassadors and TV ads.

    These Airtel people should understand that it's just the good service and customer support that a customer is looking for.

    it is true that the airtel service of banglore sucks!! the worst ever network in the world. Probably it is the strategy of airtel to convert their black money to white money. that is why they are not heeding the complaints.

    I completely agree with all the nuisances that Airtel is creating to it's pre-paid customers. I bought a airtel pre-paid, now I'm receiving numerous nuisance calls stating that this number was used by somebody else and they lost the phone and they will give police complaint if we dont return the mobile. When you call customer care they are hopeless to the core and even the supervisors are completely useless and since they could not give a remedy to my problem and they hung up on me. I seriously don't think any call gets moniotored at Airtel. Why does Airtel issue a number which was already used by somebody else. If any body at Airtel looking at the grievance please solve such nuisances to maintain the credibility.
