  5. Hi,
    I have done number porting from Vodafone to Idea,my vodafone sim card is not working anymore,and your sim card is showing the signal but i am not able to do any call or send msg. I tried calling 59059 but i don’t understand a thing. I am foreigner and there is an option to choose english and when i choose it it still talks in local language,it doesn’t pick up english at all.What am i suppose to do now? My no is 8095987282

    • Have you made call from outside India ??? then it will not work i think.. You need to call activation number from inside India and check again. If this issue presents again and again, please walk in to any of the idea customer care office.

  6. i am using idea sim booked by a different person. I had used it in a videocon handset smoothly for a long time. Recently i buy a vox v102 calling tablet, the 2g internet connection is so weak, then, after 2 days disabled now. Can not use till now. But, I am able to comment this from my old handset with the same sim that i removed an hour ago, very smoothly again! Whats the problem with new device? Whenever i ask new gprs settings, ‘Your phone is not provisionable’ is the response. Zela, Aizawl.

  9. I bougth idea sim yesterday,today i received the sms from idea to specified number,but i cant able to call 59059.how can i activate the sim,pls help me

  10. 10 days back I bought a new idea 3gsim for Rs. 30/- from a salesman on the street. To activate the sim I entered the activation number but there was no response. even there was no signal either. I could not get any help from the Idea stores. When I approached the idea Coimbatore they advised me to give one more proofs i.e photo and ID card to activate the SIM. I feel afraid if I give one more proof, there is a chance that the proof set given earlier may be used for illeagel activities. so I do not wish to give one more proof set . Make sure if any body wants to buy a new sim from IDEAstore BE CAREFUL

  29. Last 8 months I am paying my bill every month without using my number 9747111333. I was not getting network in my number and customer care people asked me to get a duplicate sim. I got thrice . And saying it’s got rejected because of verification call. I don’t what time they are calling me. And I should visit showroom on daily basis. This idea people fucking me like anything. There is no issue to generate the bills. And they can’t activate my SIM card.

    At least show some commitments when you guys are eating others money by cheating

    • Don’t make payment to them and file a case to consumer court against idea to refund all the money you lost due to their problem.

  30. I upgraded my sim to 4g. But its only activated for the cellular data. I couldn’t make or connect a call!? Give me the solution!?
