Nokia / Mobile Phone N8 — defective mobile handset

I purchased Nokia N8 [IMEI NO. [protected]] for Rs 21,700/- from Arihant Mobile Point on 9 September, 2011. I also bought extended warranty on 21 August, 2012 from Abhishek Technology – Nokia Care, (Add: 101/102, Shilp
Square, A – wing, Opp Himalaya Mall, Drive In Road, Gurukul, Ahmedabad)
Since last 1 and half year this phone has given me frequent trouble causing me great loss – mentally and economically due to sheer carelessness, inefficiency and irresponsible behaviour of the company as well as its approved dealers and service personnel. Here is the complete account of this:
The common problems with the phone are -
• The phone intermittently hangs or swithches off
• It restarts sometimes after 4 hours or after 10 hours
• It hangs frequently
• Its touch screen does not respond properly
• It swithces off abruptly during conversation
This has caused me great torture mentally as well as economically as I have lost lot of business due to sudden breakdown of my phone.
I had given this phone for repairs 10 to 15 times in Nokia Care but the phone was always returned with oral assurances. Here is the list of 4 job card details which Nokia Care gave me. (Although I visited Nokia Care several times, they are unwilling to share all the job card details)
Sr No Job Card Number of Nokia Care Date
1 S/W – 120218/17 18, February, 2012
2 S/W – 120821/32 21, August, 2012
3 S/W – 121124/50 24, November, 2012
4 S/W – 130608/58 8, June, 2013
5 S/W – 130624/45 24, June, 2013
6 S/W – 130608/45 11, July, 2013

When the phone got disconnected and switched off on 7th June, 2013; I took it to Nokia Care (Abhishek Technology). The engineer made ridiculous and illogical excuses that: I might have downloaded some applications from unauthorised sources. When I assured him that I had downloaded only a few applications from Nokia Store, he gave me a shocking reply that “Even applications in Nokia Store are infected with virus and Nokia Store is not trustworthy” . When I asked if one should use Smartphone only for making calls and receiving calls, he said that Symbian Belle has such defect and he cannot do anything in this case.
Once again the phone went dead on 24 June 2013 and I took it back to Arihant Technology. They decided to keep phone under observation for 2 days. When I got no call for 6 days, I visited them and they told me that there was some problem with the instrument and needs to be repaired. I was called on 4th July 2013 and I asked what was the problem that took 12 – 13 days for repair. He replied that there was no problem and they had only reinstalled the software and battery. Now this was shocking – if only software had to be reinstalled and battery refitted, why did it take 12 days? Do you imagine how much I loss I had to suffer without phone? Further, when I received the phone its back cover was severely damaged – thus indicating that some tampering was done with it.
Once more the phone went dead on 11 July and I had to immediately rush to Nokia Care. The engineers there tried hard to start the phone but did not succeed. They decided that the phone needs to be sent to the company for repairs. Shockingly, the jobsheet they made S/W – 130624/45mentioned in Final Action Taken column that “the handset was repaired and returned”. Obviously, I pointed it out and got further shock when they said that “It doesn’t matter”. On my insistence, Swatiben scratched it out and put reinward date 11 July , 2013 on the jobsheet.
Sir, in this way, in the last 2 months, the handset was less with me and more than 1 month with Nokia Care. Even today the handset is in custody of Nokia Care. I have visited Nokia Care more than 25 times and it seems that Nokia Care is firm on harrassing me, torturing me and causing me economic losses. If Nokia has some ethics left, it should address this issue at the earliest. Still some patience exists in me and I am waiting for a positive reply.

Nokia — Defective mobile phone

Dear Sir,
I purchased a NOKIA N72 on 30/10/2007 from "MObile Point" shop at Irla , Vile Parle East. I had obtained a receipt for the same. This mobile stopped completly on 18/11/2007. I approached the Customer Care of Nokia at Andheri East (Safed Pul) and they directed me to the dealer from whom I had purchased the mobile.
When I went to Mobile Point , I was asked to take it to the Nokia Care Centre. After hearing my story, they took the mobile but said it will take 10 to 15 days for repairs of the phone.
I would like to ask Nokia as to why I should accept a repaired piece. Why cant they replace my phone.
Also recently there have been many cases of defective Nokia phones . I advise customers to think twice before they go for NOKIA.
I also purchased a Nokia 6070 on 07-09-07 from Bambino, Guwahati.The phone strarted giving problems from the day one.I took it twice to their care centre at Bhangagarh and they failed to rectify the problems and advised me to take it to the care Centre at B. Baruah Road. After taking it from this centre, it worked for an hour and stopped working . Now I can.t even switch on the mobile.This is their quality the machines and service.

nokia cell phone — defective handset sold to me.

Dear sir,
I bought a nokia handset 2626 from the mobile store, 55-b S.P.Mukheree Road, Kolkata on 02nd Jan 09.
Its been 07 months from the time i bought this handset.It has a problem.It gets switched off automaticaly.I also visited the nokia care where they kept the phone for almost 22 days.After they gave it back to me the problem persists.

When I showed the handeset to a local mobile repair shop, all he had to do was stuff a small piece of paper below the battery and its working fine, which means that the connection between the battery and the handset is loose and the great nokia service center could not rectify that.They should shut down all of there service centers if they cannot rectify this simple problem.

I want to get a new handset or a replacement from nokia as this is a defective set that they have sold to me.I have lost complete faith on this brand.

Nokia — multiple defects in handset

I bought a Nokia 5220 xpressmusic last October. Since then I have faced innumerable problems regarding the handset. Within 6 months of purchase, my phone started hanging, it used to switch off n restart, the voice used to get inaudible after disconnecting the headset. Every time, i had to restart the phone.
One day when all my sms's got deleted, and programs got corrupted, i took my phone to the service center [Anand International Behala (Job sheet no: 811/43)] where they formatted and gave it back.
it was fine for some days till it stopped taking charge. Now that I have given the phone to the service center, they formatted the phone and gave back with the problem still there. when I intimated them that the problem was not yet solved, they sent it to the factory and since then I an calling them repeatedly only to get new tentative dates of delivery which they don't follow themselves.
I am stuck with a good-for-nothing handset and irresponsible customer service..Please help..
I have purchaed a Nokia set. After 3/4 days, there was display problem. When I contacted dealer, he told me that go to nokia care. Nokia care took 4/5 days and return my set. Then it was working. But after 4 days, it still shows same problem. I re- submit my phone to same nokia care. After 15 days, nokia care told me that It can'r repaired because there is some liquid in the phone.
Phone is in warranty.
