Trick To Directly Dial Customer Care Representative Bypassing The IVR

Customer ServiceNobody likes to listen support service touch-tone menus when trying to reach call-center support executive, luckily if you are in USA or Canada free deep-dialing service Fonolo takes the pain out of lengthy and boring phone-menu navigation automating the whole process letting you reach the desired option fast, but if you are in other countries here is a simple trick which will let you dial directly to the desired location in IVR system and reach the support executive.

IVR Menu

To get this working all you need to do is to dial your support service number and append "p" and then option-number as per menu choice, for example the customer-care number for Airtel India is 121 and to reach customer-care executive we need to navigate 121->2->2->2->9, now to reach this destination directly you need to dial 121p2p2p2p9 and you will reach support-executive directly without any further input, simply save this as an phonebook entry for faster access later.

To enter letter "p" press * symbol thrice (tested on Nokia phones only).


nice one yr

this was gr8 man...

thanks .....

Thanks foe samsung keep * button pressed for few sec.

this is realy nice, thanks for info.

hi friend

it isnt working yaar....

Thank you for helping undo what should never been done in the first place. No paying customer should have to talk to a robot. I wish someone would write a virus for IVR systems and bring back customer service. If I wanted to talk to a robot I'd talk to cleverbot.

for Delhi, users call 9810198101 and follow accordingly and you can easily talk to the customer care in no time.
You can directly contact the customer care executive of Airtel without any issue. And i have tested it personally. I hope this will help. Also for another state users, you can also use this number and get your own state customer care executive number.

thank you

cheated recharge 349 plan, worst network, i m using airtel since i started using mobile phone, though it was nearly 10 years, i never thought to change any network, but after this incident i fellt cheated and shamed. worst network in the world

Step 1: Dial 121/198

Ajit Saigal,It worked great!

12118 is the best way to talk with airtel customer care rather than 198 and 121

how can i convert offer of Rs.199 balance in Data pack in airtel recharge

how can i convert offer of Rs.199 balance in data pack in airtel

Airtel network aur service pura bekar hai khali aadmi ko jhuta bolke aur banake paisa lete hai par koi kam acha tarikese karte nahi. meri aapse request hai ki koi bhi aadmi airtel executive ki batose bhulke aapna paisa kharab mat karo. airtel wale koi kam karte nahi khali dusre ka nam bolte rahate hai.
