I have not subscribed for the "Thoughts for the day" fro 290603. Still I have started getting daily messages with the topic from the number. No response so far from Airtel. Please get the number 290603 blocked. I do not want to see any messages from the number. Besides this a refund of all the charges which have been debited by Airtel.

Airtel Mobile — Fraud -prepaid no cancelled without my knowledge

i am having airtel prepaid no. [protected]. i kept for frequent use of this no. previously it is postpaid no i converted in to prepaid and with 999 voucher made lifetime prepaid.

but in last month i try to use this no. its show sim registration failed . i enquired about this to helpline they told this no is cancelled and then removed from our prepaid database and given to fresh selling. now you wont get this no. reason is "non usage of 90 days".

but my question is why the did not tell about this. because they have my residence no all my contact details. and without confirming with me how they can cancelled this no and then given to fresh selling.

i mailed to nodal office they also answering same that you wont get this no becuase of removal from database.

while giving this no airtel taking all my legal contact document. why they did not use for contact me. also for the lifetime use i recharge 999 voucher. now this money is waste.

this is really fraud becuase a number alloted to a customer. while cancelling this number airtel do no considered concern of the alloted customer.

i need my number back. please help me.

AirTel — Unwanted message from 290603

I am receiving this unwanted SMS from 290603 for which 3 Rs are deducted. I started getting it around 10 days back around 2 to 3 message daily. This is ridiculous and annoying.

My cell number is [protected].

I do not know why Airtel is not doing anything for this as I see many such Issues.Please stop this unwanted service and put the money charged on the same.

Airtel prepaid mobile — undesired calls from

It is un-fortunate that without the permission of subscriber you people have registered me for Friendship calls. Despite my repeated requests to de-register from this club at your customer care cell, I continue to receive calls. Case in point is today (26th July '09 at 12.41 pm).
If I still continue to receive calls then I WILL APPROACH CONSUMER FORUM.

I am getting unauthorized call from one mobile no([protected])to my mobile no. please i want this no identification/ address.
they have done that to me too and without my knowledge but i have got no messages and still amount of more than 100 rs. deducted.
called today for dnd registry and was told this sim is not registered under my name. wonder if they have given my no. to somebody else who has activated this service or it is mischief by airtel people themselves to make money out of you.
They have done same thing to me also ...airtel have deducted 220Rs without any subcription, some unwanted msg come from 290603 and every time some some msg come airtel deduct 3Rs as a VAS usage, but this is wrong i have never subscribed for ant such service.I have thought this might problem of my handset setting so i have formated the handset also but deduction still continue.
I have also been having the same problem.my number is [protected].
