    Yesterday I purchased airtel 3G data card dongle bearing SIM NO.9880078131. But I am not able to connect internet in my laptop. Since yesterday I called your customer care many times by using my airtel phone. Your officer told me to contact 98450907070. Even they could not attend my problem. Then they told me to contact 12118. Then they told me to contact 18001030405. Then they told me to contact 9845098450. Then they told me to contact 12134. You are charging 50 paise also but none of your officers are fit enough to give solutions. Now what I should do . I sincerely suggest everyone not to buy airtel data card. Most of your officers are fit enough to talk diplomatically but unfit to solve any problems.

    Hi, i got airtel 3G from my bro. he recommended me that it is very good. but i’m using this from 1 month and seems like worst data connection ever. do you know what is the speed of 3G dongle? it is from 2kbps to maximum 18kbps. and also it doesn’t reach even the mentioned speed. and when i call customer care they keep giving numbers to help at all.

    I have purchased Airtel 3G Data card on 24.01.2013 in Madurai. Even after 1 month it is not activated. I have contacted customer care n-number of times but no one is giving a responsible answer. Everyone from customer care is giving alternate numbers to contact. No one is giving correct status of the activation.

      Same here, Airtel customer service is really really pathetic customer service. You never get some human to talk. Even complaints entered on their website results into timeout. I am sure this will drive many customers to away from airtel. Airtel, once a good name is now behaving like a mindless kid.

    Their automated machine is a junk box does not work as intended and their their oncall support is bull shit. they don’t understand english and they just while away asking u to call some other extension.

    I fail to get the customer care number. I took 3G data card on 23rd November with number 8310645646. Now I donot want to use it please cancel the said account so that I am not taxed further. I am a retired scietist and cannot afford this plan. Please do the needful and help me get rid of using this data card.

    5 days after purchasing 3g usb card still no connection. After taking Rs 2000 the latest excuse is that Airtel do not allow foreigners to have these! We noticed that thisd dealer did not know how to fillout the form or how to read the country name in the passport copy and complete the form!!! So is it really the Airtel rule or is it the dealer?!!!

    Airtel is now going down and down in comparison of other service provider of 3G Data Card and Sim. I was highly disappointed after buying a Data Card of Airtel 3G from Uttam Nagar. It’s not working fine and in fact it is irritating to talk with the customer care executives as they are unable to satisfy the customers and resolving the queries.
