Same old IDEA
IDEA cellular has succeeded in messing up my day one more time.. heres the mail i had to send out a few minutes ago.
my idea number - 9964800089
in the name of chaitanya krishnan
has been having the same problem every month, calls keep getting barred, even though there is plenty of talk time ..
everytime it happens i call your useless helpline, and they get it enabled.
They never suggest a solution that will prevent this from happening again.. other than the usual "we'll report it sir and make sure it doesn't happen again"
today when i called them at arround 2:00pm, they told me that-
"Our application is too slow..we are unable to check the account details so please call back at 5pm and we'l try to fix it then" ...
i have to say, that i never had these kind of stupid issues when i was on spice .. and even when idea took over, it was fine. all this nonsense started after i switched to postpaid.
rather than providing me with better service(as any postpaid customer should be entitled to) i ended up getting this kind of shoddy service from you guys.
i hope you fix this current issue and enable my outgoing asap.. or i promise you i'l just switch over to a simple hassle free prepaid connection on airtel or vodaphone, or one of your other competitors
i believe in a few months time i'll even have the facility to retain my current numbers after switching services.. so don't keep giving me excuses to make the switch.
yours truely, an extremely dissatisfied idea postpaid customer.(check your records, you'l find this is not the first time, ive had a ridiculous grievance with you guys..)

please think about the environment before you print this out,
and only print if absolutely necessary. And if you do print it out... I hope you feel a little guilty that you contributed to the death of a poor innocent tree.

This is not the first time i've had a problem with idea that their helpline couldn't help me with. i had a problem a few months ago, and it got resolved shortly after a mail like this one. click here to see that old stinker.
someone from IDEA called me yesterday evening and we sorted it out promptly.. in minutes. why couldn't the helpline people do it in the first place is beyond my understanding.
heres the email response:
