Airtel announces, you can tweet from your airtel but also tells standard rates will apply. Well what the hell does "STANDARD RATES" mean? Call Customer Care na.
Me:[after repeating the number twice] boss may i know what is the standard rates for twitter message from mobile?
Customer Care :Sorry Sir, we do not have that information. But Sir, if you send any message on diwali, you will be charged.
Me: Can you get me the info on twitter message rates? Will it be charged or go in as a part of my SMS pack?
CC: Sir, I can get back to you within 24 hours Sir.
Me: Wait, Did you say that my messages will be charged tomorrow on diwali.
CC: Yes Sir, tomorrow you will be charged 50p per message.
Me: hey come on i have a SMS free pack in which i can send unlimited STD/local and I pay RS.X every month as a part of the rental.
CC: Parroting again, yes sir, but sir, tomorrow we will charge you sir. So please do not send any messages sir[he doesnt wants me to send cause i will be charged, so caring towards the customer]
Few Days back, some one rightly tweeted ," If Airtel was god, they would charge you for breathing"
I ain't that Dumb enough to have a hope that i will get a call from customer care
Looking forward For the implementation of the Mobile Number Portability
