I have also faced an money fraud issue with airtel call home in recharging my account. I have attempted to recharge the account serveral times but every time transaction failed. When if you check your bank account and cc account they debit the money from there. Almost my $350 is stuck with them becoz I made several attempts to recharge. And when u send them mail regarding it, they don't think it important to reply back. My money is still block with them.

Pathetic services and there gateway sucks.

    Airtel Call Home - Not working
    United States

    I saw the ad and subscribed to the service. The website is very slow and I could never register my home number. I feel the service is not from a professional company, which can not even have the web service properly to excel in telelecom!

    Airtel CallHome is a perfectly fine service. I find that it has absolutely no problems. I wonder why all you people are all exaggerating and spreading such misinformation.

    Airtel Call Home - Got back my money!
    United States

    This is in reference to my complaint made before by me of the amount getting deducted from my A/c & my A/c not being recharged. The amount was in a pending state in my A/c and now its removed. So I take my complaint back.

    Airtel Call Home - Poor Service
    Airtel Call Home
    India
    airtelcallhome.com

    Airtel call Home is the worst service that i have ever opted. I purchased $100 calling card from them and faced following issues.
    1) call drops within 10 Seconds of making a call
    2) No gifts(Free Saree) as promised in their independence day deal.
    3) Unnecessary deduction of minutes
    4) voice quility is poor.

    So will never recommend to go and purchase airtel call home service.

    Airtel is at its worst.

    the website not working properly, it says user already registered even if i am doing for first time

    call center nos dont work, landline no is connected to FAX, so no use, the mobile no is not reacheable
    they have given escalation chart, even the escalation mobile nos dont work

    THIS IS THIRD CLASS, THIRD GRADE SERVICE FROM AIRTEL

    I too faced lot of problem with airtel call home. Whenever I tried to recharge it has some problem.When I contac the Customer care they will give a complaint number and after a day i will get a mail like the query has been resolved but actually the problem will remain same. I tried to contact them like this many times, when ever I contact the same thing happened.

    i too faced recharging issues and poor customer service so shifted to reliance. really feel reliance calling card is the best one around.have been using it for one year now and i get good voice quality, fast connections, and very less call drops.i learnt that they slashed their effective calling rates this festive season to about 5.9 cents/min and are also giving away 120 mins free talktime to all their customers.Makes sense to go for it.

    I am using the airtel call home card from past 1 year. And Didn't faced any problem yet. I used to call my parents in India. They didn't debited any money from my account without my prior knowledge. So I am happy with their services.. And Guys believe me they replied to each and every query or prob which i faced for making calls to INDIA.

    I also had same problems. Being patriotic, I was one of first to try Airtel services to call India. My credit card was charged four times.
    I was promised double talk time but never got any account details insspite of repeated requests
    It was frustrating to deal with customer service and I completely switched to Reliance which is best and opaque system to learn details of all our calls

    Hopefully Airtel has improved their initial glitches

    They closed my a/c because I did not use it for 6 months. Well they take all info (email, phone etc) while you register and send 100s of emails with promitions etc but when it comes to account closing, they dont bother to even inform. I had more than $25 in the a/c and they simply ignore my calls/emails.

    I really dont know what to do...Any advice

    Airtel..is the name for the company who throws your money in the "AIR" using their money minder strategical "TEL"ephone service...I wonder how are they surviving in todays economy with their cheap, money minded strategy...Their 'Call home 1 cent' plan isnt 1 cent..Customer actually pay 2.4 cent/min..after you calculate the rental fee they charge on it...Rentalllll ????? Why the hell is that ???? I know tons of Calling sites who dont charge rental and still give you the best deals in the market...Raza.com (they are offering 1000 mins in $10)..Now this is what we should call 1 cent/min...IndiaLD.com..they give you 1.3 cent/min if you sign up for their plan...Well, what can we do regarding this ?? Just spread the word as far as we can and make the consumers beware of the these "Money Eating Monsters"...called AIRTEL...
    I personally do not recommend AIRTEL to anybody...i repeat anybody...and if you dont believe in my post or the other posts on this blog...then go ahead and let them RIP that your hard earned money off you...

    Airtel is poor they cheating customers ...

    I just want to share how Airtel Call Home is fooling the people.
    They have a big advertisement 1cent/min.
    But this is a big lie.

    You can check their plans
    https://www.airtelcallhome.com/ics_war/ics.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=pages_specialOffer_page

    Plan Value $14.99 Rental Value $8.99Talk time $6.0 here is the catch if you finish calling $6.00 with 5 or 10 days...you need to pay again $14.99 and you will get only $6.00 talk time what is meaning of rental value? That needs to be charged $8.99 every time.

    You recharge as rental what is meaning of it. There are no top-up options.

    It simply means like 600 mins for $14.99 so just how much it is $14.99/600=0.02498$/min or 2.49cents==2.5 cents/min

    There is one more catch this 600 mins is only when you call when you make a call to mobile otherwise it is 300 min. $14.99/300min=0.04999$/min=4.99cents==5cents/min.

    How AIRTEL is bluffing!!! Same with other 6.49 plan 250 mins 6.49/250=0.02596$/min=2.59cents/min==2.6cents/min to mobile 6.49/125 =0.05192$/min=5.19cents/min==5.2cents/min to landline

    How great a cheating for simple Guys!!!

    UNDERSTAND ALL SIMPLE PEOPLE

    AIRTEL FOOLING THE CUSTOMER TELLING 1 cent/min IT IS 5.2 cents/min FOR THE LANDLINE!!!

    Yes. I too have had problems with Airtel. I feel using VOIP service like nymgo is a better option. I try to use the calling card only when I am away from the internet access. One has to read all the details carefully before considering airtel call home service.
