While travelling to foreign destinations, the need to be continuously connected via GSM and 3G has become increasingly important for people around the world. There is no doubt that a travel can be made really convenient when you de-board your aircraft to find that you are connected with the outside world via Data as well as GSM. This means you face little or no problem calling out to people who are coming to pick you, or simply connecting to tell your folks back home that you’ve arrived safely.

Matrix is an India based company that delivers International roaming on acceptable travel rates. There is no doubt that purchasing the local sim for a long duration stay at the destination country is more feasible and cheaper than opting a Matrix card, however, what Matrix offers for a short duration is priceless! It’s the service it offers at the time of entering a new country without any means of communication. Connection can be easily made by using International roaming from your home network, but the bills that it generates are more than just exorbitant almost often of the order of $20 per MB of data download and $10-$14 per minute of outgoing calls.

I got the Matrix connection before my travel to Slovakia. This was said as activated during my starting day. After reaching Bratislava (Slovakia), it did not show that the sim as activated.\r\n\r\nI contacted customer care in India, and it was really fantastic they activated immediately within one hour.\r\n\r\nThanks a lot to Matrix team. Its really wonderful that a spontaneous support is given by Matrix customer care team.\r\n

Matrix Card Poor

I am writing this review after been cheated twice by this company. I would suggest the customers to take everything in writing from the people you sign the contract with. These people are very good at sales and interested only in the sales. They have no after sales service and they give a damn to your requests.\r\n\r\nFirst time during my visit to Austria I was offered one sim free with the one I am buying with a free talking value of around RS 1000.\r\n\r\nHowever when I came back my credit card was debited for both the sim cards and even after talking to their customer care department atleast 10 times, the charges were not reversed. The sales executive was nowhere to be found at that time but I came to know that he was still working in the same company but only avoiding our calls.\r\n\r\nSecond time during my visit to France, where I took 30 minutes per day free call plan, I was billed wrongly for many minutes and I asked them to send someone to collect the sim card from me and since I had proof of all my calls I wanted someone to come and discuss the issue with me.\r\n\r\nHowever no one came to me for 5 months. They would only call for picking the sim card and when I would tell them for the solution to my problem, they will not respond.\r\n\r\nAfter 5 months they charged my credit card around INR 800 as charges for sim card and even after my repeated phone calls no one responded. Now if I had the time, I would have surely taken these cheats to consumer court and get them busted.\r\n\r\nHowever I would request everyone to be very very careful in dealing with them and not to give their credit card details to them and never give them the authority to charge on it as then you can not stop them from charging your credit card.\r\n

I had wonderful experience with Matrix network in all countries which I visited.\r\n\r\nAfter returning back I was charged for cards which were not used by me. After putting up the case and complaint, Navneet Kaur from customer care helped to follow through the case.\r\n\r\nShe resolved the case in 7 days. She had promised me that all wrong billings will be reversed to my account. I really appreciate the professionalism and rigor shown by Ms Navneet to close the case.\r\n\r\nI will like to give one suggestion:\r\n\r\nYour back end team should check all the records about the cards which are allotted to person very minutely and then they should raise the bills. I was allotted 3 sim cards and then I was charged for 9 cards.\r\n\r\nI sincerely put on records that I am very happy for the follow up and efforts taken by Navneet to resolve the case.

Matrix SIM Card Guys Harassing Me

I have a bad experience with Matrix Cellular. I used their service for 4 months in the US and paid them a whopping Rs. 40,000 bill. No issues. But at the end of 3rd month they stopped my service for about a week. Then they got it back and at the time of last bill cycle I asked them to NOT charge me for that seven days, they reduced Rs. 1000 which is ok but I still get emails from them about late payment charges of Rs. 100 per month since last one year now the bill is about Rs. 2000. I contacted one of their guys and also the guy who provided me the discount both of them do not answer my questions and calls. A better alternative is needed. People are ready to pay but customer service matters!

pathetic service. I would not suggest to go for it

I purchased this card on Bangalore Airport for one of my international trip of two days. While purchasing they asked me for my Credit card and said without that it is not possible to buy, I told them clearly, I will give you card but do not charge on it. you send me the bill and I will pay you by other means. Yes agreed till now this is fine. now the game starts 1. The person give me contact number of Mumbai airport matrix person so that I can return it. Because if I do not return sim card they will charge me additional. I call that person on Mumbai airport, he is not picking up phone 2. 2hr later that person calls me and when I ask him to collect the card, he informed me that there is no facility on Mumbai airport to collect the sim card 3. I call their call center and log the request for sim card collection 4. I keep getting calls from them but no one actually comes and collects the card 🙂 5. I call multiple times to send me bill, they say we will send you on your email. but it never comes 6. One fine day I receive a SMS from my credit card company saying matrix has charge this much amount on my card. 7. when I call up asking for bill then the person sends you the bill. 8. the bill format is so pathetic that I have to spend 20 mns on call to understand it. 9. then the customer representative request me to hold for 30 secs and then he never turns up to avoid further questions 10. Also purchasing the sim card I had told the person that I have voucher and he should take it from me while billing. Person said you can handover to person who comes for card collection. No one turn up for sim itself and hence you end up paying SIM card fee + no use of your voucher. if anyone would like to take this excitement then please go ahead and buy this sim card 🙂 🙂 🙂

These guys are cheaters...

I just took a sim card for my France trip and the sim card guy didn't activate the amount of data that I had asked him to. I was on a business trip and asked the Matrix people to activate 3gb data as I had to deal with a lot of presentations and file sharing. But when the bill came I got to know that they had activated only 500MB. The amount of money I had to pay extra could have easily given me a Mum-Paris flight ticket. Moreover they have also told that every day 10 outgoing local calls will be free, which was also a lie. Instead if I had taken a local sim card it would have worked out much cheaper for me. I suggest NEVER TAKE MATRIX.

Matrix a Fraud Company

Matrix is a Cheat company. They a prohibitively expensive and above all do not disclose all the details about the charges. Stealthily they charge additional surcharge and show bogus calls and sms on record. Their billing system is a complete fraud. Beware one and all, do not deal with this company. It is always better to buy a local SIM card in the country where you are travelling. It is very easy and simple. And above all you are not paying obnoxious charges to this cheat company.

I had recently taken a matrix prepaid sim for my trip to USA. The data speed promised was 3G. However the speed that i actually got was so pathetic that i could not use any of the apps including using uber for my local transportation. The incoming sms facility was not available and the coverage of the network partner T Mobile was extremely poor.

Three times bad experience with Matrix

★☆☆☆☆

I bought 3 SIM cards from Matrix. Rs 2408 each prepaid(bundled prepaid 2099 plan), for UK, Spain and France for use in May/June 2016. I deeply regret my decision. When you need it the most, the SIM is worthless. When making voice calls, I frequently got the following message: Emergency calls only. When using data, I frequently got the following message: Data connection not available. So could it be that I was in a bad area? No and No! My wife and son were traveling with me. She bought an Orange SIM in Spain(10 Euros, or Rs 750) and he had a T-Mobile SIM from USA. About 70% of the time when I tried to use my phone, I had no connection but both of them had connection. So for Matrix I paid the highest and got the worst service. The big selling point for Matrix is the ability to make voice calls to India. But frequently, even that was limited to "Emergency calls only". And with What's app calling, you can always ask someone to make a call on your behalf. When I called their service number to find out how much data I had left on my plan, they put me on hold for a long time. At the cost of my minutes. After the long hold, the operator said "wait" and disappeared. In my opinion, buying Matrix is like buying a Premier Padmini (outdated car). It will sputter along, but you've paid big money for sputtering along.

BEWARE OF MATRIX SIM FOR USA

BEWARE of matrix sim for USA. There tie up with AT&T is no longer existing. Extremely bad connectivity and virtually no data. No app can be registered. It is better to buy a local sim form USA itself. MATRIX is NO LONGER RELIABLE.

No sms with Matrix sim

Hi, if you buy Matrix sim card, you won't be able to receive or send sms in USA. SMS service is important and it's better to look for other travel sim card when you are traveling to USA.

Matrix - A fraud and Cheat company

I had taken a Singapore Matrix card in Nov 2015 for around 10 days – for which all payment etc was done and the card was returned to Matrix. However in June 2016 I was surprised to see three charges from Matrix on my credit card. I contacted Matrix customer service multiple times but nothing was done. Hence I raised a dispute with the credit card company. However I was shocked when the I received documents from the Credit card company that Matrix had sent them - they have used my earlier information (passport photo copy, credit card number etc) to create a new fraud contract. This is pure play fraud and criminal activity. Rest assured I will never use their services again and try my best to pursue this matter to its logical end - even if it means taken legal action against them.

ABSOLUTELY FUCKING SIM CARDS.
