 Avro Mukherjee on Aug 27, 2016

I am very dissappointed ex idea number user. I had a postpaid number, at first the bills were exactly as mentioned in the plans.

I then stopped using the number but the nightmares did not end then, they started calling on my alternate number every day and started asking me do you wanna switch this number on and other stupid questions when i have reminded them that i dnt want any association with your number. Anyone's help will be...

Idea Cellular — Wrong notice on wrong mail id by irshad ahmad for idea cellular

 vipin9981 on Aug 25, 2016
I have received this email from some advocate for idea.. This is not my number, this is not my address but this mail is coming on my mail id. Why?
Infact i have never even lived in this saharanpur or whatever area this is. Idea kindly find the person who has taken this number, go to his address, collect your bloody bill. Do not send this on some other person's email.
Ps i am assuming that you are running a telecommunication company and not a barber's shop which keeps sending mails to unrelated persons for recovery.
This is the copy from the mail.

Idea Cellular — Broadband service

 imtiyazpatel85 on Aug 25, 2016
Hi Team,

Idea is the worst and very bad broadband band service provider. My request has been closed without informing me. The request was raised on 15 Jun 2016 and another one on 22 June 2016 and both request has been rejected. I do not understand why this request has been closed without informing. I think you are playing with customer money and not giving proper service. Requesting you please reopen my request ad don't tell me due to system restrictions we can not open old request. If you have not given the solution then you do not have any rights to close customer request.

Idea — Network on Aug 25, 2016
The Signal at my home (which is located at the middle of Trichy city) is poor.

At town it is weak and at villages it is zero.

Idea has less number of towers when compared to other companies, but the amount charged is mostly the same as other big companies.

I have missed most of the important calls came to me and felt bad about it.

So I request Idea to resolve this issue as soon as possible....
