  1. My father uses BSNL sim from past 13 years, i.e., 2G sim, now we need 3G 0r 4G SIM for the same number. We stay in Bangalore, can anyone give the address of customer care centers in Bangalore to get the duplicate SIM

  2. I was given a nano BSNL SIM to replace the older regular SIM and informed me that the newer one would activate in 2 hours. On the 2nd day, I went in again to raise a complaint at Madipakkam, Chennai BSNL office they called someone from their landline to other department and later made an online complaint from their end which generated a reference number and shared to me.

    It’s been more than 24 hours, and I am still not able to get the BSNL Nano SIM activated nor do I have the network showing up! I tried the old SIM in the mobile, and it’s been still working.

    Can someone tell me what could be the issue for activation of BSNL Nano SIM and what is it that I need to do to get this problem fixed at the earliest? Cannot remain without a number for so many days! Any good Samaritan with any resolution to get this resolved can text me. Thanks ~ Dhanesh / 9444967425

  3. Needed a Nano BSNL SIM to replace the old one, but the BSNL people are so unprofessional that they outrightly deny giving a Nano sim neither do they tell you a way out.

  4. Worst experience in office why do I need to give proof again for nano sim card? When the fastest network Airtel gives nano sim on the spot without any just by sending an SMS of new duplicate sim card number with old sim card to customer care, then it gets activated in 20-30min max.

  5. I have a sim card of Uttarakhand. But now I need a nano sim card for the same number in Haryana. Anyone, please suggest me how I can get it.

  6. My mom uses a BSNL sim card for the past more than ten years. Need a nano SIM of the same number for her new phone. How do we get it?
