Deactivation of SIM without proper notification
I am an Airtel customer from the past 8yrs. They have always been providing good service except for this time. I was currently out of the country for 3 months, they have disconnected the service and recycled the SIM without notifying me in advance. I was using the Airtel SIM also for any incoming messages as the outgoing call rates were high. I had got a message from airtel last week saying "We are disconnecting your service due to inactivity from 4 months". I had left India on 22nd February and returned on 19th May. How did they say its "4 months of inactivity". I remember I had called people when I went into the flight as well on 22nd February, and as per the dates of usage I can assure that its only 88 days I had not used my airtel number for any outgoing communication. However it was within the network range and I was getting the incoming messages when ever there was a foreign network service provided. Today when I called the customer care to get my SIM activated, they are saying that they have already recycled my number and also their response to my questions were irresponsible.
Is this the way to respond to a customer who was believing in airtel and using it from the past 8 yrs?
How can Airtel send me a message saying "Inactivity from the past 4 months" as its not even 3 months?
Can I get contacted from an Airtel Officer?
