Same Comment To My Number Also [protected]
There is a new twist from today. Airtel has started sending "Love Tips" from their number 290603.

With today's unsolicited VAS charge of Rs.3/- the Airtel robbery into my account has risen to Rs.12/-

Is anyone from Airtel listening?

M/s. Airtel, I am not a rich man. I am a retired person without any regular income. I use the phone only for communication with family and friends.

Please stop robbing me!!!

Please!!!
Mr. Hunny Chugh, Airtel Customer Service Team

You now have my number [protected].

You said in your comments that Airtel is to resolve the issue to our satisfaction.

Is it just an eyewash.

Please stop sending the unwanted messages from 290603, im in internationally roaming and i dont want to loose my balance, so please stop this.
I have the same problem!! I was using the prepay no. for last 8 years and everyone was having this no.

It has got more than Rs 500 balance when I was gone abroad in march 2009 and I didn't use it for about 2 months and after coming back in june 2009 when I used it ... it says unregistered sim. I spoke to airtel customer service they said go to airtel showroom. When I went to airtel showroom they said this no. was not in use thats why it has been recycled.

I said why didn't you send me any notification about this and moreover it has got balance in it, how you can recycle it and they simply said we can't do anything about it. I said I will pay your fees to reactivate it becuase this no. is very important to me. but they said in a very rude manner we have told you that this no. is now for resale.

Then I said I will sue you becuase this is just a fraud Airtel is cheating the customers. They are stealing their money and customer service is also so rude.

If someone can help please do.
I almost thought that the irritating and expensive messages from 290603 has stopped.

I am wrong.

Today it changed back to “Thoughts for the day” and the timing changed to 8:30 night.

Another Rs. 3/- deduction.

Total loss now stands at Rs. 15/-, courtesy Airtel.

Please give some consideration for an old retired person.

Please stop these messages.

Same here.. I am also getting msgs from 290603 "Thought for the day" and deducting 3 Rs per day..!!
I have not subscribed to any of the services.. How to deactivate this.. ??
Same issue here. My No. is[protected] Total Deduction is Rs. 15/- so far. Sending an email to their customer service has so far not elecited any response.

I'm waiting for my balance to turn zero then wont refill it, Still have incoming free till Jan next year!!

Stop Sending the stupid messages. Knowing the tricks Airtel employs, I had already put my phone in the NDNC registry. Inspite of this the unsolicited messages continue.

Airtel is becoming ChorTEL
A guy facing identical problem was told to send a message STOP to 121 by Airtel. Even I have done the same. The reply I have received is that there are no Active Services on My Airtel Number. Go figure!! (ChorTEL Scam)

Looks like complaining to the Nodal Officer is the only way out for now. Check up the nodal officer's details for your area on the airtel website.
Hi!

I'm also facing the same issue since last 3 days. I have been calling the customer care daily and they say that its now de-activated and I wont get the SMS again. But the problem continues with 2 SMS per day. TRAI should cancel license of such farudulant carrier. Here is text from TRAI web page
===
Value Added Services:
• No chargeable value added service shall be provided to a customer without his explicit consent.
• The subscriber for international roaming can opt a particular ring back tone from their service provider to
avoid unwanted/unimportant calls by indicating message to the calling party in the ring back tone about
his/her international roaming status.

Complaint Redressal Mechanism:
• Service Providers to appoint Nodal Officers in different service areas to deal with complaints
• All service requests/complaints made to the customer care helpline shall be assigned a unique docket
number and communicated to the customer.
