Airtel — Conversion of Post paid to prepaid

I am a post paid customer and have been using Airtel Post paid connection for last one year. I have been facing a lot of problems ever since i got my post paid connection ([protected]) started. I have given lot of complaints as well. ( call interruption, call tapping, poor billing system and the like) . I paid my airtel bill always in a prompt fashion despite these problems every time. Of late, I felt that, the problems with Airtel post paid is not getting sorted out permanently so that it is better to switch over to pre paid connection. I approached Customer Care executives for necessary directions and they in turn told me that there is no problem for converting a post paid number to prepaidlife time connection without changing the existing number. They rightly explained to me the procedures that I got to follow for the same.

But, contrary to my expectations, when I approached the local Airtel outlet here in Portblair, they told me that in Andman Nicobar Islands it is not possible to have the above mentioned conversion. I was surprised to here this.Is it my mistake to work in Andaman? What is so wrong with Andaman ? Why are your company's policies often becoming detrimental to customers? If I say that I have got a policy that " Since my post paid is not getting converted into prepaid i wouldnt pay the due amount".. would you accept that ? A comapny's policy should always be favouring the customers ? is it not? Every other mobile companies in and around Andman is giving this facility and why can't Airtel give the same ? I have given this number to all my relatives, friends and colleagues and you people wanted me to give another number to them once againand spending anothe lot of bucks all over again ?

You post paid connection and confusing executives and professionas have harrased me enough and subsequently my social image has been tarnished. You company and its whims and fancies have destroyed my mental peace and solace

I request you to sort out my problem expediently

Airtel — Telephone disconnection/ non adjustment of prepaid balance on postpaid conversion

I had taken a corporate connection [protected] last week, God knows how the verification was done, they disconnected the number, and then they said because there was a previous balance of Rs 527/- on account of a previous number they had disconnected it.

Now the story regarding that Rs 527/- is rather interesting. Few months back, I used to have a prepaid connection of airtel, the number was [protected] (Month of August 2008)

It had a prepaid balance of Rs. 400, trans id [protected]. I got that converted into postpaid and then corporate. That number was also disconnected because of verification problems. I did a lot of correspondence with the erstwhile nodal officer, Aarti Handa but with no results.

I left the number because I could not spend so much of time without results.

Now I still have no problems to pay that amount but, the balance Rs 400 which was not adjusted in the bill should be adjusted, and both the numbers should resume.

I have had enough trouble and I feel that airtel officers including the verification executives don’t aim at resolving the problem.
Dear sir/madam
Plz convert my airtel postpaid number in prepaid.My airtel number is [protected].

AirTel — Conversion from Postpaid to prepaid connection

Dear Sir/Madam,
My complain:


Comlain details:
I have been a customer of AIRTEL for the past two years. My mobile no is [protected]. I had a post paid connection. On recent analysis, i found that prepaid is far more cheper than post paid. So,I put a request at an airtel customer care center to convert my post paid conection to prepaid.

This was done around three months back. There they asked for proof, i submitted my DRIVING LICENCE photocopy.
After two days, i got a call that i am supposed to change the prepaid sim, which the customer care executive have given to me. They said " You have been given a wrong SIM, get a TAMILNADU sim, you have been given a chennai SIM by mistake"
Then i went the same cutomer care centre and got the sim changed.
After aroound one month, my prepaid SIM got active.And for that month i got a post paid bill.
Till now no big problems.
Suddenly on 27or 28 of november 09, my SIM was barred, no incoming calls and no out going calls. I called customer care. They said "your documents have not been submitted". I was really annoyed, at this reply because i have already submtted the documents at the customer care centre. Next day was sunday, so no solution on that day. On monday, i went to the customer care centre and they asked me to submit the proof again. I submitted the proof again.

Now, today again i got the message that my services have been barred.

In this situation where to go and what to do.

AirTel — Change of Post Paid Connection to Pre Paid connection

On 24-Mar-2010 at 1100 hrs, when I checked my Mobile it displayed a message INACTIVE SIM. Assuming that I the SIM might have got dislocated I tried refixing the sim again and again. At 1300 hrs, I called up customer care to register the complain. Here I was informed that my SIM was deactivated because my plan was changed from POST Paid to PRE paid. I was shocked and asked the lady to transfer my call to escalation team. Here the escalation officer informed me that my sim card got blocked because of some technical issue and would take 24 hrs to fix it. Since I do not have any other source of contact, I want my service to be restarted immediately within half hour or pay me a compensation of Rs 1000 for every hour of delay in providing the services.
I lakshmi Sowjanya have a post apid connection having a mobile number [protected] which ahs been deactivated. so i just want to convert my postpaid sim to prepaid sim and also i want the same number to be contiued.
