[Resolved]  Idea Cellular Postpaid — helpline problem

Idea has provided a helpline number [protected] for its postpaid users in Maharashtra.
On May 29, 2008, I tried to call this number several times during the day, but this number used to get connected to their pre-paid department instead of post-paid. The executives at the pre-paid department are not ready to route the call to postpaid, nor are they ready to register a complain or greivance for this problem. They simple disconnect the call, or tell us to dial again and again.

I filled the form for getting myself converted from prepaid to post paid on 25th Dec, 2008, made the payment by cheque which was cleared on 27th Dec, 2008, but still the connection has not been converted, though i was assured that as soon as your verification is done and cheque is cleared your connection will be activated. My cell no. is [protected].
The executive who sold me the connection (Mr. Ashish) is not answering the call on [protected].
If you will not help me out, unwillingly i will have to go to consumer court.

I have a complaint against ITBL TELECOM PVT.LTD. I have purchased my idea postpaid addon no. from your DSA ITBL TELECOM PVT.LTD.
on behalf of my previous no.[protected].
On 20th october/09 i recieved a call from ITBL, they are offering me the add-on connection with the offers like free travel package, free voilet etc.
which i regretted because i already have the two connection. but after that they promise me to give the good mobile number. from the pool of numbers i have selected[protected], which is good at such a promising cost .so, i blocked the number.
After that there executive abhimanyu came to my house at appointed time to complete the formallities, and at that time also before giving the money, i rechecked my number which is blocked for me. so he (abhimanyu) again called the concerned senior to confirm me the number. so he says yes you will get the same number.

Now, it's 26th october/09 and my number is not activated till date. after a no. of calls, now they are saying that this number is on waiting, some body says that this is a gold number,
somebody says your request is on processing stage.
I also made complaint at ILBL with complaint no[protected] to rajiv) and[protected] to kusum) but have'nt recieved single call back.

Now the issue is that i gave the amount of Rs : 250 on the basis that iwill get the desired number but now they are harassing me by saying that the number will not be the same.
They have charged Rs 250 and on sixth day, no service is being paid . They give false promises to have customer in there net and after recieving the amount they tell the reality behind.

please take the strict action against this false company otherwise i will go to consumer court.

waiting for your fast response and action. sim number of addon connection purchased on :20th/oct/09 is[protected]

thanking you
