Nokia 6681 / failure to provide correct information and misleading and threatening customer

1 India Review updated:

I am sharing my frustrating and demeaning experience with Nokia Care Centre, Ghansmandi Cross Roads – Hyderabad, A.P. I had given them my brand new Nokia 6681 handset for repair through the Vendor, M/s. Simran Mobiles, who sold the mobile to me. M/s. Simaran mobiles informed me that Mr. Natraj, Service Manager, Nokia Care Center, Hyderabad, has told him that the mobile would be repaired in 2 days time.

When I checked back with Mr. Natraj after 2 days, he told me that a part is not readily available and it would cost me Rs. 800 / -, and the repair will take another 2 days. I agreed to make the payment. I checked again with Mr. Natraj after 2 days, as advised by him, and he told me that the problem would be rectified and the handset will be returned to me in a day or so. At point in time he asked me what the problem is!!. It surprised as well as annoyed me because he was asking this question after keeping the handset for so many days when he I was supposed to return the repaired handset back.

Since I am due to travel I was requesting for a firm date for the return of my repaired handset. As a customer, I was obviously very unhappy with the unprofessional and arrogant behavior of Mr. Natraj, who was not willing to commit me any date. On 14th September 2006, I again contacted Mr. Natraj and he told me that he can not give me any assurance on the date of return of my mobile.

At that point I asked him to put me in touch with his superior (Mr. Pradeep) in that center to resolve the matter, which Mr. Natraj flatly refused. He also threatened me that if I don’t follow the system, he can report anything he likes on the job card and write off my mobile as irreparable and there is nothing that I will be able to do. He also said that the company would only support him in this matter. This was a sickening experience that customers are helpless and at the mercy of the care centers for getting the rightful services due to them. Not only this, Mr. Natraj used very crude and unprintable language to emphasize his points.

What is very difficult to accept that the employee of the Service Center (Mr. Natraj) was swearing of a proclaimed professional and customer centric company (like Nokia) of support in justifying his unethical and rude behavior with the customer. If the company also condones this kind of attitude and behavior from service centers, as claimed by Mr. Natraj, I wonder what course of actions is left to an aggrieved customer!!!

I am also giving this written complaint to Mr. Pradeep (Proprietor Nokia Care center - Ghansmandi) and Mr. Natraj (Assistant Manager – Nokia Care Centre, Ghansamandi) and marking a copy to all concerned to initiate necessary action to see that my grievance is addressed. I am sure that Nokia, India will look into the matter and advise me accordingly.

    NOKIA 6681 - In Warranty.

    I am facing a similar issue in Delhi... I have given the handset to the Nokia Service center and now after so many days they are saying that the hand set can not be repaired and the main mother board needs to be changed. And I need to pay for it as it is tampered??? I was taken by surprise as to how could this happen. This is a brand new set that I purchased [box packed]...

    Now nobody wants to listen and they say that either you pay or you can keep the dead handset???

    Something very odd happened with me too. My Nokia 6681's display LCD suddenly stopped working. When I gave my handset to Care Center, here in Mulund, Mumbai, they said the LCD is faulty and will be replaced. But after one months delay what the tell me is that PCB (motherboard) of my Phone is cracked broken due to jerk caused, may be, by falling...

    Is this a reason?? Does any PCB gets cracked so easily ? Well, I don't think so. The material with which a PCB is made up of is very resistive against sudden shock or jerk. The malfunction of the LCD happened when i was watching a video on smart movie, till half of the video it was working very fine when suddenly the colors on the screen got scattered... how can this be due to my phone's falling down somewhere??

    Now they have given me back my dead handset, with which i can only receive or dial calls with no display on!

    I guess, all this happened due to carelessness of service personnel, who, while repairing might have damaged my hardware. Just a guess though!!
