[Update: Fixed] Idea network not working users say

Scroll/swipe to the end for recent developments and updates.

Since today morning we’ve been coming across reports from users on Idea network that the service is down and not working properly in some of the regions.

Initially, it appeared the problem was troubling a limited number of users. But over the past couple of hours, complaints have grown massively on micro-blogging site Twitter. And considering the number of users troubled, the glitch becomes worth highlighting.

Here’s a selection of some of the recent reports. Take a look at what users have to say:

As a result, both calling and messaging facility has been compromised for the time being.


Apparently, this Idea network glitch is bothering users specifically in Delhi and NCR (National Capital Region), India.

As for the company’s word on the matter, while Idea is asking the concerned users to DM

What’s good is Vodafone has at least reverted back to some of the complainants acknowledging the issue. They also added that it’s being looked into.

This is a temporary issue and we are working on it. You will be able to use our services as soon as it is resolved

For those of you naive, Vodafone and Idea cellular merged last year only. And with Vodafone acknowledging the issue, it should be safe enough to assume the currently ongoing Idea Vodafone network glitch in Delhi and NCR shall be resolved soon.

Rest assured, we are keeping an active tab on the matter and will update the story as and when any new development comes to our notice.

In the meantime, are you also facing the network issue since this morning with your Idea connection? If so, drop a comment and let us know.

Update 1

Now Idea has also confirmed to one of the users that it’s a known issue and they are working on it.

This is a temporary issue, and we are working on it. You will be able to use our services as soon as it is resolved.

Update 2

Looks like the issue has now been resolved. Idea is suggesting users to reboot their devices once and check if the problem still persists.
