An Idea Nirvana customer on Twitter expressed his angst against the conversion of Idea Nirvana to Vodafone RED without the customer’s consent. The customer belonging to Dhule region in Maharashtra comes under the Maharashtra & Goa telecom circle which was migrated to Vodafone RED in the last phase of Nirvana to RED migration.

Another Idea Nirvana user from Maharashtra and Goa who was migrated to Vodafone RED earlier today expressed his displeasure against his SMS and calling benefits becoming zero. Maharashtra and Goa circle includes the entirety of Maharashtra and Goa state except for Mumbai which is a standalone telecom circle, while Dhule comes under the Maharashtra and Goa circle.

Multiple other migrated customers have been vocal on Twitter due to issues faced by the migration. Whether Vodafone Idea manages to address the concerns of the migrated customers remains to be seen.
