Vodafone Has The Best Online Recharge Service

Vodafone Has The Best Online Recharge ServiceOnline recharge service is a must facility an operator has to provide.With more and more people joining internet everyday, It is very necessary to provide customers with a secured, flawless recharge system online.

We tried to Spot some of the Telecom Operators who are Good at this.TelecomTalk gives Vodafone Full Marks and we feel nothing wrong in Terming Vodafone as a “Best Online Recharge Provider” for Prepaid Customers.

Here we List our Experience, Trying Online Recharge with different Operators

Airtel

Airtel, India’s top GSM operator has done several campaigns to promote its online recharge service. We conducted a small test.We visited the Airtel’s official website airtel.in and we were happy to find the option to recharge online.

Things we Noticed in Airtel’s Online Recharge System

– Simple listing which asks for your number, recharge amount in a drop down box and a CAPTCHA for Security.

– Airtel mainly relies on mCheck service.

– One has to have Mcheck PIN to make recharge.

– Range of Denominations available are very less. There are just 9 options to choose with (Minimum Recharge Amount 50Rs).

– No Special Voucher recharges like Internet pack for 98 etc can be done Online!.This disappointed us as Internet Users wish to Recharge for Internet Plans Online.

– Payments via Only Credit Cards or Net banking. No debit cards allowed! (though they have mentioned all types of VISA card allowed)

– What we did not like is, they are using mCheck even on web mCheck is best suited for mobile and though using it online  is simple.It prompts you for mCheck PIN! Also we were not able to recharge via debit card!

Minimum recharge amountt was 50 and no special recharges were allowed.

Idea Cellular

Idea Cellular’s Official website ideacellular.com flashes the “Online Recharge Banner” but Idea prompts you for an 8 digit code to make your life still complex with additional verification thing.We were unable to recharge at one go because of 8 digit barrier.

Here is the Link for Online Recharge for Idea

Aircel
Aircel has limited number of denominations to recharge (60,100,222,333,500). Though it has option to recharge for special offers like internet packs. We couldn’t see many important special vouchers listed one good thing is , it don’t prompt you for any complicated PIN.

However we got This Error Message at End

“Dear Customer,

This service is temporarily unavailable due to some technical reasons. We regret for the inconvenience caused. Please try again later”

Aircel definitely has broken Online Recharge System”.

Reliance

Reliance doesn’t have any facility which provides online recharge!

We Checked their Official Website (Both CDMA and GSM) to find nothing about Online Recharge!

Tata Docomo

Tata Docomo, the new kid on the block  provides online recharge service an Amount as low as 11 can be recharged online.Tata Docomo even accepts Credit Cards, Debit Cards and Net Banking.The only thing which Lags in Tata Docomo is one cannot recharge special vouchers its Pops up a Window “Coming Soon”

Uninor

No Online Recharge Facility!

BSNL

Provides online recharge cacility you have to get ready with your Username and Password to Recharge (Open for Registered Users Only)

Vodafone India – No recharge tariff or How many days validity, the details are not available in Vodafone-India website, very difficult to recharge. Online recharge is a nightmare

I use to recharge my prepaid using my ICICI Internet Banking account. They allow recharge for almost every operator except Videocon/Etisalat DB. Their mobile banking app also has the same feature. I use Idea and what I like the most is they don’t mix up special recharges with top-ups like recharging with 98 pack will always give you internet pack without taking into matter how you recharge. Tata Docomo has special recharges available through their webpage. Recharging Airtel through bank’s website is same like their own website. Only 7 recharge denominations available.

Airtel online recharge is the dirtiest one i have ever experienced.Shame up on you Sunil Mittal, because of your inability to take into account the requirement of customers.Airtel considers customers as menials,they dont allow any special recharge through online.Procedures are so complex even in case of regular recharges.Hell on Airtel.

A frustrated customer

wasim : vodafone chor-saale… they have different ‘full talk time offer’ for per sec and per min customer within the prepaid segment itself… while no other operator has such discrimination and fine-print. also these b@%$@%@#$% don’t put it clearly on their website. i was on per min and used to regularly recharge for rs.222 full talk time offer every month, but when i converted to per sec plan the rs.222 full talk time offer was not applicable and the min was rs.333. what is frustrating and angers me is that it was not clearly mentioned on its website even after… Read more »
