Poor service by Samsung authorized service center

Complaint by
Ramakanta sahoo

Dear sir
I have purchased a Samsung mobile having its model no:C3510 and its imei no:358650031771637 on dated:03-10-2010 from Roshni enterprises, Bengaluru.

A few days ago I have got a problem in functions of its touch screen, so went to an authorized service centre of Samsung to claim for repair against warranty. I have handed over the cell to the said service centre staff on: 21-06-2011 by 10.34 am. I was told to get back my cell within 48 hours but I am sorry to say that till date 27-06-2011 by 1.30pm I have not got my cell from the said service centre of Samsung, apart from it whenever I have tried to contact them, asking about my cell,they are neither cooperating me nor can able to say, about surety to give back my cell with rectifying the problem.

Sir, the said service center has committed to give me my Samsung C3510 after necessary repairs with in 48 hours, but after almost 7 days passed & have not got my cell. I have tried to talk with concerned authority of that service centre, but sorry to say either they disconnect the phone or talk with me in a harsh voice.

I am requesting to your goodself considering it as a priority one & rights of a consumer do kindly initiate necessary disciplinary action against the said service center,so that I can get back my cell with repair & the rights of a consumer can be saved. Requesting your prompt action soonest possible.

with thanks & best regards
Ramakanta sahoo

Hello Sir/Madam,

This is Shivaji Lohar, I have bought new mobile phone (Mobile model - Galaxy Samsung Core, bill number: (UAP):2045526 TIN/CST no:-28026280297 IMEI Number: 359710050247197) Hyderabad(Gachibowli) showroom ( 2nd Avenue ) on 12/JAN/2014 around 1 PM.

The very next day from the date of purchase I noticed that there is a NETWORK ISSUE with mobile. I tried using different SIM cards, but every time I was disappointed as none of the SIM was working in the Phone. The same SIM is working properly in other Cell Phones.
The Error message is like:- “MOBILE NETWORK NOT REGISTERED”. Due to which I cannot use any of the SIM services provided such as Making & Receiving Calls, SMS Facilities etc.
If this is the case then what is the Purpose of Purchasing the New Phone…? By spending amount Rs 13350/- if the Phone is not serving the purpose for what it is meant for, then for what purpose it should serve…?

I am getting same issue like whenever I try to call, am getting an error message as “MOBILE NETWORK NOT REGISTERED”. Due to the Issue of the Network I cannot use the Phone. If this is the case than what is the Use of Purchasing the New Phone…?
I bought the phone on 12/Jan/2014. From the very same day there was the above mentioned Issue, so I visited the store on the very next day. They said CRO is not available for the day please come by tomorrow. Next day I again visited the Store and again the same story as “CRO is not available for the day please come by tomorrow.” After following up for 2 days they did not responded to me properly and I was totally frustrated by their idiotic answers given to me.
After regaining some courage, I visited the univercell showroom for the 3rd consequent day and the answer was as “choose the network manually and use the phone.” After following their advice the Network worked for about half an hour and again the Network has lost. I thought that there would be some Network Issue with the Service Provider so I again waited for a day.
On the 4th day, after manual selection of the network, issue was not resolved so showroom executive provided me the 2nd solution as “There may be SIM card issue please changes the same to new one and use.”

I even tried using the solution provided by them but the Issue was still at its heights and now it was very high time for me as this was getting onto my Nerves. So again there was no solution left for me but to visit the Showroom once again. So now they came up with a new reason as “You need to submit your Cell Phone to the Service Center.” I had no option but to leave my phone at the Showroom.

They took around 4-5 days to get my phone back from the Service Center. Kindly note that still the Issue was not resolved. Totally I have submitted my Cell Phone to Service Center for 3 Times for which the details are as follows:-

1) Registered Crime number:-4167480051(Samsung Service Center)- Software Updated- Issue not resolved
2) Service Request Number:-12805[(UniverCell) Not registered in Service Center]Just cleaned the Wireless Antenna -Issue not resolved
3) Bill No:-4168358925(Samsung Service Center) Changed SIM Slot- Issue not resolved.

I am from panchkula Haryana as I had been visited to the Samsung mobile care centre in sector 14 panchkula for checkup my Samsung galaxy s3 cell phone, I got problem of flickering and hang in my handset. As I had shown my cell phone to there executive they just simply answer me that no service is available here because no spare availability in our centre. I ask him that how nany days this will take he simply answer me that this will take long time i.e 6 months and take ur phone to chandigarh service centre as I feel really disappointed by the service provided by them.

I gave my Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 for some problem faced for service at the below mentioned service center on 11th October, 2014. 0003438996 MISHREE COMMUNICATION, Devnandan Mall, Ahmedabad

The executive told me that I will be getting it back after 2-3 days, and then they took entire week for that and returned it on 18th October. At service center, while handling the piece for service, the SILVER CHROME ON THE PERIPHERAL FACE OF THE MOBILE is damaged by their engineers. But now they are denying that it is not possible, it can not happen at the service center, and they are not ready to rectify that. So ultimately I am left with my unnecessarily damaged mobile piece. At the end, I am very much dissatisfied by this kind of behavior and response of their executives and with my damaged mobile.
