Oxigen should focus on its customer service first. I sent a mail to Oxigen and requested them to change my registered mobile number. They never replied. I sent a mail to PayTM and they responded within 24 hours. There's a reason why PayTM is the most popular payment solutions provider right now. PayTM's customer service is EXCELLENT. I use only PayTM now. Oxigen does not know what customer service means.
