Vodafone is rejecting my MNP 3 times, giving the reason as UPC mismatch. But I have confirmed with the receiving service provider that UPC is correct. But still my request is getting rejected. And logically, it is not possible for anyone to make same mistake thrice. Please get me out of Vodafone. I want to complaint to TRAI and consumer forum. What should I do?


Vodafone has rejected my porting request 2 time. First time without any reason and second they said due to code mismatch. Now i don’t know what to do. Can i have any mail i.d or number of TRIA, where i can complaint against them. Regarding service ….service is really very bad. I am not satisfy with them. They change plans without any notifications. We have many telecom brands in India but don’t know why govt. gave them so much power. They do whatever they want.
