Airtel Prepaid Scheme / totally ridiculous!

1 India Review updated:

Presently I am using airtel prepaid scheme with one year validity on special students scheme. When recharge my card from the normal plan to one plan, I was not told about the STD tariffs. Now i feel the plan is totally ridiculous and doesn't worth to stay with it anymore.

    Yes... Airtel is cheating their customers by false sms... They sent a recharge offer sms that contains "you can get 1 year validity for Rs.216 with talk value of Rs.50... I switched to that plan with 1 year validity... After some days, i got charged 50 paise/sms(only 365 sms free for the whole 1 year)... They not even intimate this in their sms and when i visit their website... It says that it is a plan and not a offer... complete cheating... Dont go for airtel!

    Just an Alert to people who are using Airtel Prepaid and Recharging through ICICI Online Option.

    I used this option, and sometime you never know, where your money is going. From your ICICI account, it will get deducted and in your Mobile you will not get the credit. From Airtel customer Service, you never get a proper response...

    Sometimes it works properly. But you can't rely on this. So far I lost some thing around Rs.500/-.

    I am getting disturbing promotional-sales calls and sms's from airtel and from lot many other unheard services from past 4 months, i have told airtel customer care -around more than 20 times (literally) but they never stop this nuisance rather these kind of calls and messages (sms's) have increased ever since, which come at odd times in day or night and N-number of times. They never stop it even after i told there customer care at 121 so many times to stop all this and activate DND ( do not disturb) on my prepaid number, even send them lots emails at to which they never respond- it looks like they never ever want to stop this harassment which comes as an unwanted add on with there connection.

    Even i am unable to send sms's a lot many times;as they failed and sometimes show the numbers where i am sending sms's didn't exist but when i tried from someone else mobile- they are successfully sent.

    I have send email to there nodal officer (punjab) but no response is part of there company - looks like there customer care is for giving troubles to the customers instead of solving them. All this is frustrating pain in the head.

    Airtel is the worst company in regards to service and customer care, i have ever experienced till now.

    Airtel SUCKS
