  11. Sir, This is regarding my Airtel service and phone number is 9035752376. It’s been more than 20 days that I requested to convert my postpaid service to prepaid which they considered my request and initially I was told that my prepaid services will instantly be active, But it’s been more than 20 days I’m neither able to recharge my account nor able to get incoming calls either. I have visited Airtel store N number of times without any luck and in fact they’re very rude at customer. I have raised the complaint with customer care as well. However, they will call me once in a 3 days and say your issue will be resolved in couple of days. they’re not even allowing me to port to other network or resolving my issue for the past 20 days. It’s a very pathetic experience that I’m not getting incoming calls at least for the past 20 days that effecting my regular work very badly. If you could help me in this regard would be a great help for me.

    Thank you!
    Madhu Marshetty
