Is it necessary for a postpaid user to himself go to the idea office to shut down his number ?
 
 
It was around 3 years back when I got my postpaid number cancelled . They asked for self attested aadhar card as well .
Don't know status now .

The store was telling a different thing and the customer care is telling a different thing.

Taking the documents there is fine but to be present there for confirmation wouldn't be convenient.

If they don't switch off the number should stop paying the bills.

And then you will get a legal notice.

Postpaid is unfortunately such a scam in India. Everything should be easier and cheaper for postpaid when it is the opposite in India.

That is a concern.

I have done this once when reliance weren't cutting down the bill amount when I couldn't access their network.

 

They refused to deduct the charges and I didn't pay the bill for 2-3 months.

Kept getting calls and told I won't pay until the money is deducted and then they did it.

The number that needs to be switched off is linked to my father's id.

 

And going there is not convenient and also when customer care is saying the identity holder need not visit for switching off (but compulsory for converting to prepaid)

I feel that the store employee might be pissed when the reason I told her is that he is too busy to visit (some other reason might have done the job ?)

 

 

Also this procedure can only be done when bill cycle is completed (waiting another 10 days and have to pay for it as well when it is not going to used, and who knows missing it will make it having to wait another month)

Yes right I got my number converted to prepaid so for that yes I am sure - ID holder visit is necessary as they have to do KYC .

 

Also I faced the same problem as well - Procedure can be done only when bill cycle is complete.  

Perhaps you can try another store if you don't need the old number and you wouldn't need to take your father along . 

But if you want to convert it to prepaid then yes you will have to take your father along around the end of bill cycle .

Yes,that's the reason now I want to switch off the number instead of porting to idea prepaid.

Another thing that can be done is portability to a different network, this thing is so strange that you can port to any other operator with the new person's id proof (no prior documents or anything required)

Guys, need recommendations for a sub 15k phone for mom

 

Has to have good battery life, a big screen and headphone jack.

 

confused between the Samsung M30s, and Nokia phones. There's also a mi note 8, but I don't really know how secure the platform is or how the quality is on the phone from this manufacturer

Is there a difference between the 4GB and the 6GB version.
Except ram, nothing. Go for the higher version, as your mom would usually hold on to phone for longer, so will be helpful for a longer run. But if I am right pro only has 6 and 8 gb versions.
