Airtel fraud

Hi fellow dimers,I have an airtel prepaid number in our family on unlimited plan and I have observed that the daily data quota balance is wrongly shown …for example yesterday night I have not used any data but it is showing 1.1gb left instead of 1.5 gb..this happens when you don’t turn off your mobile data before midnight. For example if i start using data from around 11:30 pm and say I have used some 300mb till 12:00 and if i forget to turn off the data before midnight this is counted in the next day’s quota. Earlier I thought maybe I was mistaken or it happened accidentally but of late this happened many times. I have complained to them on twitter but they fail to acknowledge the issue. I have already ported one number to jio and I am looking to port this no. too.
Finally if you are getting similar speeds and coverage on jio and chortel, always choose jio. Chortel won’t be transparent in this lifetime and will continue cheating customers

Might be some issue with your mobile.
An app would have sucked your net.

I am using for 3+ yr. Never switched off net(just kidding). Never faced this issue.

Firstly Dear STOP keeping your Mobike Data connection on your phone to always On ,Switch it off when not in use.this way you will not only save your data being used in the background constantly but also be saved from some unforseen mistakes. Also apps in background eat up the data and they update automatically if set so and also they backup (whatsapp ) data, and many things fraud likes always are mostly or at maximum during night if phone compromised.

Swith off Data when Not Needed.

Check if any app is using data in the background maybe thats the reason your data is getting exhausted.

That’s the case truly
But I think OP created the thread for a different problem, his one day’s data usage is being reduced from the other day’s daily quota. Maybe because his session is ending on the new day. But in any case, it shouldn’t happen like this.

The weird thing is that the 90% data notification comes before the midnight, but still the data usage gets deducted from the next day’s quota

That’s what I do, but sometimes for streaming or downloading I use this data, but this should not be the solution.

Visit there gallery.
Take screeshot of notification with time
Also after that check and take screenshot.
Meanwhile keep a tab on data usage in phone settings as to what app is consuming how much .

It’s Chortel. They can do anything. I generally turn off Mobile data on the last day of pack expiry at 11.50PM and then recharge new pack after 12AM. Sometimes airtel deducts Rs.10+ from main balance citing mobile data usage during this period. Only they should know how airtel is able to run mobile data on my mobile even if it’s not turned on. I know it’s waste of time to talk and convince them about these issues.

Use a firewall and allow only the apps that you need access to data.
On the hindsight its SHITtel haramkhor can do anything.

Google Datally earlier was there to take care of such issues by auto switching off data for particular time. Unfortunately, Google removed it from app store last year. Some other similar app would be helpful.

I have already complained to them on twitter but they didn’t solve the issue. Yesterday checked my balance at 12:02 am and it was showing 1.1gb left. I should have stopped the data before 12:00 my bad,stopped it at 12:02 and 400mb was gone. It is a fault at their end, no bg apps were running and this has happened several times. Sent the Port sms let us see if they will respond.

Check all the apps if they r using data in background and i will try to mention some of them
1.If u use Utorrent or any torrent application try to pause movie uploading after download (or use Utorrent pro) ,as it uploads movie from ur downloaded data anyway that’s how torrents work as of my little knowledge , correct me if I’m wrong
2.check backup settings in Google photos, sometimes ur downloaded movies will be uploaded there if u don’t turn off that particular folder backup.
3.Check whatsapp backup running in background
These are my own experiences

first of I will suggest dont get worry for that 300mb. Now a days data are on cheaper side. there are many net meters which will record all the internet usage of the apps. then you will figure out which is eating data in the idle time

No data is being used by apps bro, it is chortel which is counting the previous day’s data in next day quota. If this happened only once we can let it go, but every time when I forget to switch off data this happens.

Yes, it will queue as long as you recharge with unlimited plan…check if recharge option using bal is available on airtel app.

Thanks for your help bro but no apps are using any data, chortel is wrongly clubbing previous day’s usage with next day’s.

Chortel started reducing data since last week

I already had app to track data usage.It worked perfectly since 2years. (<20MB difference)

All of sudden I’m getting sms alerts without crossing 90% & 100% imp (>150MB difference)

I agree Bhai Chortel ka past record hi itna acha hai na. Ki sabse pehle scam ka hi khayal aata hai.

Bloody Airtel did it again. Deducted Rs.130 citing Mobile data. That was previous day’s data usage. Pack was about to expire, so updated all apps from playstore and turned off Mobile data at 11.52PM and suddenly amount deducted at 1.20AM. Asked CC to send minute by minute data consumption details but they say they cannot send and argue that I forgot to turn off data. rage rage

Same thing happed to me today i used only 1.35gb out of 2 gb/day 1yr plan and the airtel gives me a message that you have consumed 90℅ of your data i.e, 1.8gb so where is this 0.45gb data go… And it is happening with me for last 2-3 days…
