[Resolved]  Vodafone — Mobile Number Portability

Applied for Postpaid Mobile Number Portability([protected]) on 01st Sep 2013 and we are on the 22nd day,still no response and number has not been ported yet. Customer Care executives give commitments after commitments and cancel the call if i ask the final commitment date. All documents have been submitted and i do not know why is this issue when i have cleared the payment and also made an extra payment of Rs 700 odd to carry smooth process. Extremely disappointed and would take this matter in social media if it does not get solved by tomorrow.

Vodafone — Plan Mismatch and Date of Activation mismatch

Hi Below mail i had sent to Manager today of vodafone, after getting some facts of the situation. So what you guys think are the reasons for technical mismatch

Sub : Cancellation of Number [protected]

Dear Sir/Madam

I want to discontinue this number [protected] issued to me on 19th Nov 2007 right away. Details of the plan are.
Date of Activation : 19/11/2007
Tariff : CORP 199 + 49 Pack (Std @ 1.00)
Reason for deactivation:

1- Given plan is not matching with the Generated bill that i have in my hand i.e STD rate are ~2 Rs Only
2- Today First time i tried to logged in through vodafone site to pay my bill, So i tried to register first but i got the message its login already activated. So i was surprised because the connection taken by me was new.
Then i called up customer care and they told me the way to retrieve the password and i tried by entering 3 -4 times wrong password. And i got the password. After that i found the details there and i was shocked that the activation for that number was 20th April 2006 not 11th Nov 2007 and the plan was not the same as told to me. Then i called up again customer care and told the same and after that i am not able to access myvodafone portal its 4 - 5 hour passed. And "customer support guys are saying some technical problem we are trying to resolve in your account"

So i want to know the reason for this mismatch? .

I am stunned after discovering all , what do i think now after being a voda-fone customer and what should i suggest to other. To wrap up I really don't want to continue with the services and with the this number.

I beg you to reconsider how you treat your customers and *reward* us for there loyalty rather then punish us! with your mismatch services like this. Its a dealer end problem or what ?, it can hamper anybody security of personal or business life.

Then i said their is nothing like your notification or information has been came on my cell that your renewal scheme were started frm 9 pm to 12 pm so how could i know that sir ? simple person just know that my scheme will renewal or chargeable after 12 pm of 15/11/09 or before/after of its 1 mint and i sent an msg near about 9.30 bcz i dont want to renewal it so i sent my cancellation msg to the company but they didnt replied properly. even though its supervisor advise to me that if i want to cancel my card, i can go by vodafone center.!!! has it proper answer to speak with its customer ? anyways as an customer i hope authority over here take some action and full fledged my satisfactory.

Vodafone — Mobile Number Portability

I had opted for an MNP from Vodafone Postpaid Kolkata to BSNL Prepaid Kolkata.

The port code was given and I was ported out to BSNL.

I used the connection for more than one month and later one day I got a message that I have outstanding amount in Vodafone.

The information was wrong as I had a postpaid connection which also had some security deposit .

Later on one day my phone was disconnected by BSNL and they said that Vodafone had informed the authorities that there was an outstanding payment .

I have proof that Vodafone had earlier said that there are no outstanding dues.

Now BSNL is not being able to activate the connection.

Vodafone please act .

Vodafone Prepaid — Number Portability Issue

I have been using vodafone prepaid for past 8 months. There are lot of network problems in vodafone. That's why i decided to change it Airtel . I have applied for on 12th FEb 2011. It been 1 month. Airtel guys told me , it is nothing any problem from their side. Vodafone is not releasing the number. I have called call center they say to hold while they are retrieving the information and then cutting the call. My number is [protected].

Vodafone India — No any response for porting


I'm fed up with Vodafone service, there most of deduct my balance without any reason, when I ask them for details they do not give any proper answer.

Due to this reason, I desperately want to change my operator, but when ever I message PORT [protected] to 1900, I get a message "The number you are requesting for porting is allocated for our internal purposes ......" , like always this time also they do not give any response.

Please suggest.

Vodafone India Postpaid services — Unable to Port Out the Number

I have a Vodafone Pospaid Connection which I took two yeras back. Till this date I have paid the bills correctly. Now, I want to move out of vodafone using MNP to some other provider.They rejected my porting request stating that the number is a premimum number and I was offered it for free. Now if I want to move out with this number I have to pay 1000Rs.I was not informed about this when I took the connection and untill I raised the port out request.

Vodafone is such a looting company with lots of crook ideas. Without confirming with the user they ahve activated Vodafone Live and Caller tone.

Please do consider this as a complaint.

I decided to opt for mobile number portability from Vodafone to Airtel on 21-Feb-2011 and generated the PORT code : VM186737. But after the generation o[censored]PC or the unique porting code, there has been proactive no communication from Vodafone whatsoever.

They are neither porting my number nor are giving me any reasons on why its not happening - they have chosen to merely ignore my porting request. I have communicated this to Vodafone several number of times - all I get is some assurances but no solution at all.

Out of frustration, I have even mailed/called the nodal officers and appellate authorities of Vodafone - but all these attempts have been in vain.

Apart from the normal Vodafone Call Center execs (on 121 and 198), I spoke to all these officers:

Nizam Sheikh - Nodal Officer (called on[protected]
Shawn Perreira - Nodal Officer (called on[protected]
Zillah V - mailed on Zillah.[protected]
J Mundkur - mailed on j.[protected] (Appellate Authority)

Mr. Nizam advised me that J Mundkur is the highest authority for Vodafone and if he (or she?) doesnt respond - theres nothing that can be done - all I will have to do is wait. The wait is more than 6 weeks now - though the porting exercise should ideally not take more than one week
This is a prime example of how mobile phone operators take their customers for granted.
I am a vodafone user from Mumbai and I am very UNHAPPY with the current responses/support I received. The way I was treated was appalling. I would not like to continue any more with vodafone. Thus, I submitted a port request and today I got an SMS mentioning : "The number or range is in contractual obligations"

Well, I have paid my bills to date and have no pending amount on my number. In fact, I cant even call from my number [protected] to the 111 customer care number. Seems like I have been blocked from talking to anyone; though, I can listen to the IVR options. This is an insult to a 8 years old customer.

I had simply objected to a huge bill (on the number [protected]) which vodafone charged me for using vodafone live. They say I watched TV-- yes, I did try to see the cricket matches live during the ICC world cup. And, the whole world knows that the visibility was almost null. I was not able to see anything and I kept the mobile TV turned on. I was also under the impression that this is free as a trial and then I see that they want me to pay around Rs6000 for this.

I still paid the whole amount and before due date. Nothing is pending. I CLEARED ALL BILLS AND UNBILLED USAGE ON BOTH MY NUMBERS.

I got couple of complaint numbers after I called on 111 from a friends number. The person attending to the call said I would get the numbers freed up in 24 hours and then I got an SMS stating that I will get an answer to my query by Monday and the SMS includes the same complaint numbers which the rep gave me on phone.

[protected]--complaint number [protected]

[protected]--complaint number [protected]

Why is vodafone playing games or trying to cheat people? I have paid my bills and no longer wish to be a customer of vodafone.

I am sending this email to express my frustration with the system vodafone has.
