Dear Vikram,

I know that the creidt for RS 1400 is not recieved because it is not showing up on my statement but my concern is that it was your mistake and how could you chang my billing amount in the middle of the month my last bill was 791 which i paid in full and if you came to know about that rs 1400 charge charge it in my next bill and let me see it my bill and i should have the time to pay the same as i have for all my normal bill how could you stop the services of my phone as my last bill was bill was paid in full and how you make cals at my home saying that my bill is not paid for the bill which i have not recieved yet and what about the lossand the inconvience i had to face for the discontinuation of my services it was the FAULT AT YOUR END and not at my endso why i have to suffer for it.I am a manger at a leading bank and know the importance of customer nor one of employees said a word sorry for their mistake instead kep on blaming me for non payment of bill how could i make payment when i have not recieved the bill for the same my payment due date is 26 of every month and i should have given time for the same.

Dear Mr. Bajaj,

I am also a victim of Vodafone but my case was well addressed and resolved finally.

Indian govt has provided a proper way of filing these kinds of complaints.
You should visit

They will fight for you without any fee. Just copy and paste the whole conversation there.

This facility is provided by government of india to reduce the load of consumer courts.

Vodafone has to appologies and give you the compensation for there wrong deeds.

You should not give up.

Vodafone — Not refunding the outstanding amount due

Dear Sir.,
With lots of grudge against Vodafone Essar East Limited Company I am writing this letter to you .Myself Karthikeyan J residing at ITPL, Bangalore was customer of Vodafone. i was using the post paid connection number ([protected]), i closed this connection on 25th Nov 08. At the time of closure the representative (Udaykumar) in Vodofone store (ITPL branch) informed me that there is nearly Rs:170/- more balance is there in my account and the same will be refunded to me after 45 days. But after that they changed the amount to Rs 143/-. But still now i haven't received any cheques for the same. when i approached the ITPL Vodofone store on 4th Feb 09 the repesentative (Rajesh) didnt respond me properly and made me to roam for many times. The repesentative (Rajesh) said that he will call me back on the same. But till now he havent reverted back on the same. If this kind of attitude continues from one of the reputed company then i am sure there will not be any customer taking this illful service providers. Though the amount is less for me, i need to address the same to the higher officials who doesnt monitor their workforce for misbehaving with the customer.

How can they stop the services and make calls to my mom and abuse me and my relatives at my home saying that my bill is not paid for the bill which i have not recieved yet and what about the loss and the inconvience i had to face for the discontinuation of my services it was the FAULT AT Cellular Mobile Telecom Services END and i was not in Chennai i was in Hyderabad in this period due to which i couldn't make cash payment in a vodefone store this was the issue from my end.

My Reply was this

Dear Legal Cell

First of everything check this point in your mail (However, in spite of the receipt of bills, you have grossly failed to make the said payments) and also check it with your people. I didn't recieve any bills from your side stating the amounts for the past 1 month . Check it clearly .

I was a Pre paid customer and basing on my usage you as Cellular Mobile Telecom Services company gave me an offer to change my connection to Post paid that was may be two years ago, from the date i dont have any defaults in the payments, I used to make payments even through Credit Cards but the present global positions in finance i dont have any Credit Cards and the last date of reminder irecieved is 06/06/2009, 02:39 pm and the msg says

Hello. Pls make pymt of Rs. 1368 for bill Zdtd 20 May, on or before 7Jun to avoid late payment charges. Call 729 from your mobile for the free pymt pickup facility .

After this from14/06/2009 my mobile services has been blocked/stopped. I didn't receive any of the bills you have mentioned after this date. Your people also spoke to my mom abusing me and my relatives basing on a number given by your service executive the person who used the unnecessary and bad language has admitted this, and she said also admitted that the bills were not sent, her name is Ms Sakthi called from this number[protected],[protected] and[protected] she told she will say sorry to my mom which didn't happen. So before sending mails try to gather all the information to your best knowledge then proceed that will develop your skills.

Lets see how it works for you. Gather all these information and decide what best can you do in this case and write to me.

Vodafone — Due amount not received

Complaint Reference number :[protected]

I changed my Postpaid Mobile connection to a Prepaid Mobile connection.I made extra payments for the last due bill from Vodafone in November,2009.
Vodafone has not yet paid me the excess amount I paid. I was told that the due amount will be delivered via cheque to my local address. I requested Vodafone not to do this as I had changed my local address.
Three months later I went to a Vodafone store for information.They informed me that the cheque was delivered to a person with some Mobile number(which was now unreachable).
This is what went really wrong as Vodafone cannot deliver the cheque to anyone else but me.

I am into the month of April with no response from Vodafone.
Bad service.Not happy at all.

And they say they are Happy to help!!
Vodafone Head Officer,
Dear Sir,
My Name Is ARSH BATISH . I am from Phagwara, Distt. Kapurthala, Punjab .My contact No. is [protected] . On date 23.5.2010 a caller tune " SAI VE SADE FARAYAD " was activated without my permission and balance from my phone was deducted . I came to know about this when i got message from vodafone . I immdiately report to customercare about this . They tell me to call on 24.5.2010. When i call again they tell me that your caller tune will be deactivated within 5 hours . when i ask about my balance they tell me that you call again on 26.5.2010 . i am really diappointed by the behaviour of your vodafone sevices . My balance is nearly Rs. 33 before the activation of caller tune and after activation my balance is -11 Rs. This is really bad that your customer are not satisfied by your services . I hope you will take some strict action as early as possible . I want my money back as early as possible . You can send reply on my Id [protected] Or you can call me on my contact no mentioned above .

Hi Team,

This is my last mail to vodafone care, because last 3 month i am compling abt my bill copy not geeting for [protected] . thats why i am thinking abt to change operator.
Dear Sir,
I have the Mobile Connection No[protected] with pre paid plan, On dated 30.10.2010 Vodafone deducted Rs 21/- from my balance saying that Internet activation instead I have not demanded for this service. Moreover I have not the Mobile set with GPRS facility.
I have lodged complaint many times with the customer care at [protected] complint No [protected] but no proper response /solution has made by them uptil now.Such harrasment & wastage of time type activities do not shows the graceful act for the corporate company like Vodafone.
It is requested please look into the matter and arrange to refund the deducted amount immediately as I am a student having very nominal funds .

Arsh Batish
This is worst company to deal with. Especially the Punjab Customer Care executives who don't even know the processes and just keep on replying to the emails without thinking what they are writing what is being demanded.

Vodafone — Complaint against non resolution of payment made in 2008

Dear Sir,

I am a user of Vodafone Mobile no [protected] from more than 7 yrs, during the last 7 yrs, there has been changes in plan i.e. individual no to corporate no and then back to individual. During one of the plan change. i.e., individual to corporate (company paid) due to some confusion, there was a delay in payment for the month of June & July 2008 amounting to 1598. I made the payment for the same on 01 Dec 2008 via cheque no 377086 at Bandra (W) Vodafone branch.

Later in year 2009 i received calls from vodafone collection agents for the payment and even after conveying that the payment was made they diconnected my number, for which i submitted the proofs (Bank statement) and payment details at Bandra (W) and Malad (W) Branch.

However the same was not been resolved, and still kept on getting calls and i provided the cheque nos to them and also wrote to Vodafone care and raised a complaint and submitted the proof for the payment made and received a acknowledgement of resolution. However even after that i still kept on getting calls for the same. Today (i.e 19 April 2011) i received a cal from one of the executive from mobile no [protected], stating that he is calling from Vodafone legal and Vodafone has put a case against me for non payment.

It is really disturbing to get such calls even after i have made payments. Request your help to resolve the same and take necessary actions.

Thanks and looking forward for your response.

Respected Executive,
I tried to recharge my number online through the official site of vodafone. At the last moment, transaction got
failed and subsequently, I didn't get any talkvalue . It happened twice.
As I was using axis bank netbanking, I have respective transaction ids with time-stamp. Could some representative of company tell me how you people respond to this kind of scenario? Is there any provision of returning that money? If so, why don't you did the same?
sir, I would like to tell you that customer care executive are in the good habit of cutting the line when they see matter is tricky or different from regular complains.
Please do the needful.
