I bought a new vodafone prepaid connection for rs.295 with the schemes that i would be getting 3 months validty, 1500 local sms free, 300 min vodafone to vodafone free, n 25rs talktime n 5 family n friends no. On which i can make calls at half rate... N the expiry date of the connection was 28 june 2008 that means i could have got that connection activated by that date...
But when i got my connection activated from vodafone store at nirman vihar on 10 dec i was shocked to see that i only got 2rs as talktime instead of 25rs n only 1 day validity instead of 3 months & there were no other schemes which i mentioned above.
N when i contacted the customer care i was told that the schemes have been withdrawn & now u will not get any of these schemes.
I want to ask that is it right on the part of the company to not give the schemes for which the customer has bought the connection???
N how can they say that only the connections activated before 3 dec have got these schemes!!!

This is really unfair because for a customer like me that connection is of no use now & my hard earned money has been wasted just because of this ridiculous plicy of the company!!

Plz do something for consumers like me!!!

I am consumer of Essar after that Hutch and now Vodafone since 2001. But after coming vodafone instead of Hutch I am totally confused that what is the solution of this no.. Because I had given this no to all of my nears and dears all over world they use to call me on this no. I think that TRAI have to take decision early that "WE CAN CHANGE SERVICE PROVIDER RATHER THAN THE NO" The services of Vodafone is pathetic. Whenever I make a call to customer care than its takes around 1 to 2 hrs. to connect. After that it will be your good luck that you will not be dissconnected automatically. When I contacted to the senior officials of the customer care regarding this they replied that there are a lot of consumers in que. I don't know that It is my/consumer's problem that they have a lot of consumers in the que. If I don't have time 2 hrs than it means I can't talk to customer care regarding my problem. If they can't give the satisfactory services to their consumers they have to close their shop. There are a lot of service providers in this industry who are giving the best services. I will suggest that TRAI have to give a clear ultimate to these companies that if they will not satisfy to their customers, they have to close their shops. I think the Vodafone only wants to make the money from India and not more than that. Vodafone is making mistake to compare us before freedom time.

I would like to bring to your attention the problem I am e facing because of ridiculous service of Vodafone. My Number [protected](prepaid) and I got message on 16 & 17 & 20 & 21/02/08 from Vodafone “100% Talk time!! Recharge karein Rs777 ya Rs300 ke recharge se aur paayein 100% talktime, Limited Period offer”. …. Sender Vodafone. I recharge my number with Rs 300 on 20/02/08 which transaction id DL[protected]. But My number was recharged with Rs. 267 and when I called up customer care number 111 on 20/02/08 and talked with female Customer care, She told me that the balance money would be transferred to my number within 24 hrs . unfortunately I did not get balance talktime on my number and when I dialed again toll free number 111 on 21/02/08 and spoke with care executive sharad who disconnected the call when I asked him to transfer his call to his team leader and again spoke with ashwani (under team leader Amit Bhandari team). They told that my number [protected] is not eligible for this kind of scheme.

Now could you explain why I am getting this messages and why you are making fool to customer by sending wrong message. As I have recharged with Rs 300 as I have got message which I have not deleted so far,
This is a humble request to you to transfer my talktime balance on my number and stop to send me wrong message in which my number is not eligible.

i m chandra mohan from iit delhi, research scolar.
what u people are doing there? u r doing customer care or simply doing fraud? i phoned thru customer care more than 10 times, but till my problem didnt solve, i[censored]r activities and service is not linear, u cant satisfy ur customers, ur customer care officers also simply balance and try to cheat others. then hw the customer will manage with ur vodafon simcards? i need proper answer from u, otherwise i will take further step regarding ur irregularities, and misbehavior.
also most of our student communities of iit delhi are refusing ur customer care, we people are talking day by day about ur irresponsibilities. also the day that they will change from ur simcards to other simcard is not so distance, they are trying to change their simcards and we are talking to our other friends to change the vodafone simcards.

this is my problem,
today(05/03/1980, wednesday, at 3.00pm) i recharged rs.222 with the voucher of rs.75(for reduced rate of std and local at rs.1). my problem is till i didnt get the activation of 75 rs voucher. when i talked with ur customer (don't)care officers, they told it will come after 15 mins, after 4 hourrs, again u hav to wait for 3 hours, and finally they told u hav to wait one more day. this is the high tech growth o[censored]r essential customer services, ur higher authorities and senior oficers hav to congratulate ur respected(!!!!!!!!!?????) customer care officers. u can give better prefrerence for ur customer care officer's improvement that those who hav irresponsibilities, misbehaviour, it will use for ur company growth also(??????????)

I have vodafone prepaid connection, I bought another prepaid connection from vodafone to my mother so that we can get connected through family and friends. The call is getting cut automatically after I give the confirmation. This is very bad and still i am spending more amount. For this I could have bought some other connection and have enjoyed the same family and friends option. More worry I am not sure what needs to be done for this. Anybody aware of how to resolve this issue.
A Person is Disturbing Us, His Phone Number is [protected]
Can Anyone Provide me the Name and Adderss of the Person who is Having This Number.

Plz Send His Name and Address to Me.
Just fifteen minute ago i foned to nepal to with family. I was very gareful for time consumption. I talked just two minutes and not one second more but my prepaid money was cut for three minutes. I surprised that why Vodafone has made such type of luting police. vodafone is looting cunsumers day by day by doing such type of activities. I have another experience with Vodafone. Last month I bought a world calling card. I recharge it as mentioned in the card but never could talk with friends who are living abord. What happened with this card, you know when I dailed any international number the ring tone had gone but reply was without voice (no voice no talk). I searched local vodafone customer care centre and went there but that fellow whowas say working there did nothing. I became very frusted and return back. These are the some examples of pre-plained luting police of Vodafone. The question you may do "Why you are using Vodafone? The answer is I have paid money for one year validity. If I through the sim of Vodafone I will loss that money also.

yes i can say that fodafone is the worse service provider, infact they cheat the customer a lots!when you call up the customer care service it take more than 3hrs to connect and on top as soon as they received the complain they will put you on hold and disconnect the line, cces are very rude, here why iam saying that vodafone is cheating, whenever i make enquiery regarding how much they charge international sms, they said that rs-5/-per sms but most of the time they take rs-7-8 per sms!now iam just waiting for my validity period to be finished to use another service :-)

Vodafone — Sold a scheme that didnt exist...


I was a Vodafone prepaid user, I was approached by vodafone officers on phone and forced to change from Pre-Paid to Post-Paid. I was lured by the offer specified below.
I agreed to change only because I was given 600min of free talk to any no. and 30ps per sms.

But on activation, I was surprised to see that the talk plan says some other plan and on checking the details on the myvodafone site, it says "system error"

On calling, I was horrified to know that the plan that was sold to me didnt exist, and I was suggested some other plan which didnt make any sense in me moving to Post Paid.

Now Vodafone says they can't revert my no. back to prepaid, nor can they activate the offer that they sold to me.

Please help.

Offer i was given under the corporate plan...
Rs 249 monthly + Rs 99 for free sms's
First 600 min to any no. is free.
First 200 sms is free after which its 30ps per sms
For Rs99 I get Rs 300 worth sms, which is 1000 sms free.
This I was told was some corp249 plan.

Thanks & Regards,
