The idea cellular deducted my balance thrice time without informing me .1st time on 12.07.2008 -30 Rs deducted, 2nd time on 19.09.2008-30 Rs deducted and today this is the third time on 27.09.2008-10 Rs.
When i called customer care several time but always answered me" server is down".Nobody gave me satisfactory reply for that.

I m very upset because of this deduction of money without using it.

Last time i refilled for Rs.50 and i tried to access internet, but within 4 to 5 minutes i was charged Rs. 40.00 i don't know the charges for internet but whatever it may be it shudn't be Rs. 40 for 4 minutes right.

Second time i got call from Customer care for activation tht in Rs.25.00/day i will be able to surf for entire day but when i got connected to it i was charged Rs.25.00 But i was able to surf for 1 hr.

Thirdly i was charged for hello tunes Rs.26.00 but it's not activated till today and they deducted the entire amount of hello tunes.

So from starting i m just paying the charges for the services which i m not using at all..

So i request you all people who ever reading this complaint tht please do not use Idea's worst than any other services...

deduction of balance - IDEA CELLULAR PHONE

Dear Sir,
I am the regular user of idea cellular no. 9887375093 since 3 year. I have recharged my cell no. of Rs. 310 and previous balance was Rs. 25, Total balance is Rs. 335.

We haven' t made too much amounted calls whereas the customer care service executive of Idea phone says there is GPRS Usages charges although we haven't use GPRS services.

As per the executive Sumeet Mishra of Idea customer care there is activation charges of GPRS services and downloading of various wallpaper.

as per noted as on date 15th jan, 10 at 15.30 the rest amount was Rs. 3.72.

There is one another issue that they many time applied the Caller tone without any intimation.

Thanks and Regards
