2) Any Airtel phone number with high broadband speed : Yes, you need a phone number of Airtel with high broadband speed like 256 kbps. Airtel connection is so common that any of your friend or neighbour might be using it. Just ask for their phone number and save it. As an example, I am assuming a number 1234567
Step1) Now comes the tricky part : Just call 197 from your Airtel landline phone and ask for the following details of the number 1234567.
- Name of the owner of this number.
- Address of the owner of this number.
Step 2) That's it. Now note down the 2 details mentioned above.
Step 3) Now call customer care ( 4444121) from Airtel landline and tell them that I need the Account Number and give them the phone number you have e.x 1234567
He/she will ask you for the account details and tell them exactly what you noted in Step 2.
Note : Airtel by default sets the username as Phone Number and password as Account Number.
Now you have phone number and account number of a person that has a high broadband Airtel connection.
Now I am going to tell you that what to do with the phone number and account number.
