I told you bcoz when I tried to enquire abt the same, I too gt the same kind of response. Bt when I demanded demo from them, few ignored for demo and few showed me demo and I didn't find any such problem. Bt I would still suggest you to go with your favourite retailer bcoz you can anytime catch him if there would be some malfunctioning :)

The Mumbai retailer's listen to you easily then, or maybe they just started fixing the Hyderabad DVR's. :D In the end took an Airtel HD DVR from a nearby retailer for the same reason :)

Thanks IndianMascot and Aditya...i am pretty much buying online, so no retailer preference for me. I will be relying just on the opinions / feedback of our esteemed members here.

AIRTEL running FRAUD again!!

Airtel gives one free top up for "Value sports" pack, customer can pick one topup from 7-8 top ups listed on their website.
airtel monthly packs

From past 4-5 days I am noticing Cartoon Network as free top up for "Value sports" pack.

Today I called them to verify if I am eligible by deactivated my current FREE top up.

So the CC guy says, "Yes sir, website is showing it FREE and our system is also showing it for FREE but YOU WILL BE CHARGED!"

I said, "Why??"

He had no answer.

He said, "Sir, if you insist I can enable, BUT then DONT COMPLAIN if charges are deducted!"

I am like WOW what kind of answer is that??

I said: "Then Airtel is running fraud by showing it as FREE on website!"

He said: "Yes sir!! Even I know its FREE but you will be charged!!"


In short its a fraud by Airtel again, by giving FALSE offer on website to lure the customer.

I had similar experience with Airtel CC (I think they are under educated about their service/product, or they are foolish). I wanted to change from Mega pack to Value Sports. I asked to downgrade and keep my HD pack along with 2 Marathi packs (of 4 channels). But CC guy said if I downgrade, I will get only 1 pack of 2 channels. Rest 2 channels would be charged. I said but in website it says that all 4 channels would be available. But he was reluctant to accept it. So I stayed on Mega pack. Again after 20 days I called and asked to downgrade my base pack. And guess what... I am on lower pack and yet getting all 4 Marathi channels!!!So don't trust CC guys from Airtel. Better call again.BTW on which pack do we get Cartoon Network free? If it is available, I would also like to get it :p
