RCom shutting down its voice services in Gujarat

32

Anil Ambani led Reliance Communications, also known as RCom, is shutting down its voice services in Gujarat and has asked its subscribers to upgrade to RCom’s 4G network.

The company is shutting down its 2G network in Gujarat from September 29 as their license for the 2G spectrum is about to expire. The company sent out SMS to its subscribers informing the same, and, has also asked them to upgrade to their 4G network if they wish to continue using data services, or simply port out to another network.

It’s worth noting that after RCom has shut down its voice services in Gujarat, it can be difficult for RCom subscribers from different states traveling to Gujarat to communicate with anyone as they won’t be able to make any calls from their RCom number. Especially because the telco doesn’t have 3G network in Gujarat, and, neither does it have VoLTE service in the state which would allow its subscribers to make calls even after the 2G network is shut down.

Moreover, we have learnt from our sources that RCom will also be shutting down its stores in Gujarat, which means the customers won’t be able to do any recharges from the stores. However, they would still be able to recharge from RCom’s website.

We wish to inform that the company has initiated migration of its customers in Gujarat circle to an all 4G network, prior to expiry of 2G spectrum in that circle end September 2017” told RCom to BSE.

Porting out to any other network is the only option with RCom customers in Gujarat. If you are a RCom subscribers in Gujarat, then do let us know about your thoughts about this in the comments below.

UPDATE: RCom services in Gujarat have shut down. RCom’s retail stores have also been shut down. The customer care was also unavailable when we tried reaching out to them. However, RCom has sent out SMS to its customers saying they will still be able to make calls and send SMS, but at regular rates. Any special pack or plan benefits will not apply on calls and SMS. Well, porting out from RCom to any other network would be a better idea now as paying for calls and SMS at regular tariff doesn’t make any sense at all when other operators are offering free calls with at least 1 GB data per day.

Besides, RCom users traveling from any other state to Gujarat need not worry much as they will be able to make calls and SMS as RCom has a tie up with other operators.

I had bought my reliance number in 2008-09 and suddenly it stoped working, actually I was using it just for incoming. I was just shocked and wondering about it. Then later I come to know reliance is closed and as my phone was off for 2 months, I did not got any porting MSG, so I visited their store in Ahmedabad and they demanded Rs. 20 to get porting code, and finally after getting porting code I have shifted to Bharti Airtel.
But the experience was horrible as that number is for my professional use.
But thanks to reliance and Airtel.

Exact the same story with me. I am using Rajasthan Prepaid GSM Rcom in Gujarat. I used to recharge with periodical roaming. The number I have been using is 10+ Yrs and its the same I registered with n number of places and contacts. Suddenly after Sep-2017 there is no signal most of the time. Also recently I recharged with 100.00 top up going from PayTm. Money got deducted and Paytm shows success msg but there is no balance added. Today I came to know that it has shut down its voice call in Gujarat. The burglar didn’t even alerted… Read more »

Total Loss of Public Money….Never believe in Anil Ambani’s any venture. This is going to become a big scam. Lacs of people are having lots of money in their account. All loss. First they said switch CDMA to GSM now shutting down whole network, even they shutting down broadband business without informing clients. And still sending bills of that. Totally Fraud people. Mukesh ambani is a good guy, But Anil ambani is a fraud. Always in loss. You can also see RPower. Now people will never go with Anil Ambani’s any project. He should be band in india to do… Read more »

This is ridiculous thing by Reliance.
Total loss of Public money!!!!
First they move all CDMA to GSM and in year + 3 Months they are saying move to 4G network.
Tell me if your parent is not comfortable in using internet but would like to be in contact did they really need 4G network OR any G Network.
I can still understand to move voice/data to next level but Just by thinking business is not a good move. I hope they will shut down Jio sometime and will say opt ‘GKDikho’ OR ‘Die’ :)

“It’s worth noting that after RCom has shut down its voice services in Gujarat, it can be difficult for RCom subscribers from different states traveling to Gujarat to communicate with anyone as they won’t be able to make any calls from their RCom number” – Not True
Users from other states can very well use Tata Docomo’s network for calls on roaming as this ICR is already in place since years

This is a true story. I have already gone to Ahmedabad based RCom Store in Vastrapur Area and they did all the porting formalities for me. I have successfully ported my number to Vodafone prepaid. However, in this midst, I have lost all my prepaid balance that was there with R.Com which is totally unfair and TRAI needs to step up and do something!

It’s not a hoax. I have been speaking with RCom officials. Also, if you are in Gujarat, visit any of the RCom stores, you will know.

Dude come on! dont tell me you fell for that scam. Its a hoax and license just doesnt expires like that its hell lot more complicated than that and shutting down 2G network is basically shutting down 70% of your revenue. I’ve got a message from Reliance saying its a hoax and Rcom will provide continuous services. So relax.

I am also from Gujarat and using RCom. I have visited stores and I was told the that voice services are being shut down in Gujarat. I have my sources in RCom who are at a much senior position and they have confirmed the same. However, they are also saying that even though spectrum is expiring, we won’t leave customers in lurch. Let’s see what happens on 30th September.

Also, since you are from Gujarat, can you please visit any Reliance store in your city to know what those people are saying.
