  1. Today, received the bill for my postpaid net connection, My plan had been changed from Pro3_799_7GBDY7GBNGT to 4G_675_3GB the last month itself, but I had not noticed since the amount was not much different, the new plan being operative only for a few days. Usually my bill is around Rs 900/-, but when I received this month's bill, I was shocked, it was Rs 1856! They have allowed only 3 GB and then have charged Rs 939 for "Mobile Internet" of 1834 MB! I tried calling customer care, but it is not accepting my selection of options at all. Anybody else got such a bill? Any suggestions how to proceed?
  2. My Jio SIM experience: 11 Sept 2016: Purchased Jio SIM paying Rs 200 giving printout of E Aadhaar 15 Sept 2016: Call from outlet saying my CAF refused since it was Aam Aadmi Ka Aadhaar (sic). So handed over copy of driving license 21 Sept 2016: Visited outlet. They informed that EKYC will be started soon, and to come after a few days 24 Sept 2016: Visited outlet in the morning, since it was a holiday for me. Huge board saying Jio verification was kept outside. Got token 38 at 10:30 am. Went for shopping and checked at 12:00, token was No 8. Went home for lunch and came back at 13:45. Token 15 was running. Due to server issues, lot of delay was happening. Till 14:45 there was no progress, so most customers left. Then suddenly token 15 was completed. The next two tokens were completed in about thirty minutes. As there was nobody else, my token was entertained. The process starts with thumb verification of the outlet owner. This had been allotted to only one person, so if he was not there, the activity stops. He had not been able to go for even a tea that day! Finally, he went for lunch after initiating my process. First my Aadhaar number, then my thumb, then you need the alternate phone No, SIM No, coupon code, then again my thumb. An SMS came to my alternate number which was an Idea number: "Thank you for choosing Jio...". The whole process was over in about 10 minutes and I left the shop at about 15:45. I waited for a message intimating that my had been activated, but did not get any. Finally at about 18:00, I tried the SIM and it was showing signal. I opened a site and lo, internet had been activated! Two emails had come from aadhaar@uidai.gov.in saying that your Aadhaar number XXXX XXXX XXXX was used successfully to carry out Authentication using "Fingerprint " on 24/09/2016 at xx:xx:xx Hrs at a device deployed by "Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited"
  3. As far as I know, they have disturbed only datacard plans. But if you are happy with the 2G services and not interested in 4G speed data, why upgrade?
  4. Chorcom wants customers for their ****ty services! Seen at a shop yesterday:
  5. In Kerala, Idea is offering a similar 4G Wipod for Rs 1800/-, with 6 GB free data per month for three months. With competition hotting up, we can see many more such offers! But it may be better to buy an unlocked device. But maybe phone is better, since if 4G is not available, it can switch to 3G + or -, but not sure this is possible with device.
  6. Thank you for the suggestions, I have ordered the USB wireless adapter on Amazon. But just wondering, can I make use of my Chorcom Wipod for the purpose? I can connect my phone to the Wipod network, but there should be some proxy server to deliver the internet to other clients on the network.
  7. After some search over the net, I found that these codes are standard for GSM networks, which is why phones are having this facility. But I was using the codes for CDMA network, which did not work after shift to GSM. So much for the incompetence of Chorcom CC!
  8. I couldn't find the 4GFREEDOM350 plan. Which link? But Chorcom will anytime send you to another plan of their choice. I prepared a comparative statement of the various Prepaid plans available in Kerala, and Jio is the cheapest, but without SIM, I can't use it. Next is the Idea special offer, which is very close to that of Jio. Idea doesn't seem to distinguish between 3G and 4G data.
  9. That's what I also thought. Chorcom cc is the worst. A few months back, I was having some net connection problems due to old device. When I contacted cc, they asked, "Have you updated Antivirus?" Of course, how could I, when I was not getting net connection. When I answered no, she said to first update antivirus and then call, and disconnected.
  10. I had complained to customercare@relianceada.com and I got a reply: "Kindly note that, call forwarding is an handset feature,can be activate and deactivate call through Handset only." Is that right? That means call first comes to handset, and then is transferred to the other number? Earlier, I used to dial *303 in Chorcom for Not Reachable-no Call Divert. Then calls used to get transferred without reaching handset. Anyway that feature is now removed. Totally useless "Customercare".
  11. Was Chote Bhai only responsible? Doesn't he have any advisors? Just can't understand their logic to antagonize a loyal customer base. I had been with Chorcom from 2005! Bade Bhai is trying to woo new customers giving so much of freebies while Chote Bhai is doing his best to drive them away. Is it the case of the emperor without clothes?
  12. Finally I was able to locate a vendor who gave me the Jio SIM for Rs 200/-. Now waiting for activation :-). I had purchased Intex Aqua 4G strong, but now I find it does not have USB tethering but only WiFi tethering. What is the best way to share the internet with my desktop which does not have wireless or bluetooth?
  13. This reply is from Reliance Customer care officer, and so predictable. Is it possible to file a case in the consumer forum? If so, which forum is applicable? Navi Mumbai?
  14. The problem with Postpaid is that once you exceed the quota, your connection is totally cut off. You don't have an option to renew. But with prepaid, you can add packs. With CDMA, after quota was exceeded, you could browse unlimited at slow speed, but such an option is not available with 4G. So postpaid is not advisable.
  15. But I am not getting a SIM! Some say it is being sold in black. Anyway, after getting cheated by Chote Bhai, not very sure of Bade Bhai. Once he exhausts his oil money, he will close down. Well, enjoy while you can!
