Nokia / poor customer services
I have submitted my nokia handset N80 to care center because of display problem (Under Warrenty) on 17.Feb.06 but I am still not able to get my handset back. I registerd a complaint to careline on 09.Mar.07 and still awaiting their feedback on my complaint. Whenever I call careline, the only answer I get is please call back after 48 Hrs. I wrote mails to their customer support dept. but only to find false commitments. If the set is not repairable please replace it. Does it really take so long to sort out a problem? I have paid hefty amount to purchase the set only to call up care center and careline. Nobody is bothered about the customer. This is for the 4th time that this set has gone to service center. My 2 months warrenty on the set is already lapesd in the service center. Do nokia extend the warrenty. If not then why the set is not serviced fast.
My Job sheet No. is [protected]/070217/23 dated 17.Feb.07.
My complint no. is 2-1WPYJP dated 09.Mar.07.
Is there anyone who would listen to me???
I am also attaching the e mail communication that I had with Customer Suppport and you can find easily that what is going on.

Dear Noki Care,
Please refer your earlier mail. 22nd March 07 came and gone but there was no call from any of your representative.
That is why I had mentioned your services as Pathetic in my earlier mails.
I am fed up writing mails to you and would like to initiate suitable action from my side. I do not see any reply or feedback coming to me on my complaint which was logged on 09.Mar.07. and let me remind you that it is 15 days now.
Keep frustating your customers.
