40 days long joke or horror?
Purchased unlocked (so I can travel and use it in Americas and Europe) Samsung Galaxy Note II smart phone at the end of November 2012. The phone worked fine for about seven months and died. Called Samsung support, received by e-mail in 5 minutes the UPS label for shipping it to Samsung repair shop. A week later or so the phone arrived back with included completion report stating "REPLACED PBA" and died after couple of hours. The story repeats. Called Samsung support, received by e-mail in 5 minutes the UPS label for shipping it to Samsung repair shop. This time the Samsung repair shop called and said the phone works fine. I asked him to leave it powered on a desk for one or two hours and try to use it after. He called back and said they replicated the problem. A week later or so, the phone arrived back and died again after couple of hours. This time the completion report stated "REPLACED PBA" and "RE-WRITE IMEI". I called Samsung support again, was told the case will be escalated to the exchange department, they asked for completion reports from the Samsung repair shop (like they don't communicate internally!). Fine, scanned and e-mailed the reports to the address provided. Called back to confirm that they received the scans because they were not replying by e-mail. Called and asked every day for a week or so and they were telling me that they have not received my messages and attachments. Uploaded the reports and a purchase receipt to my website, sent them the link and asked them to get files from there. They finally said that they received the requested files. I called them once a while for next two weeks asking what about the escalation and replacement. I was told that the case is being processed and somebody will contact me soon. Two or three weeks after the second repair while waiting for somebody from exchange department to contact me... I was told that they are waiting for third completion report! What the heck... the phone sits broken on my desk because they promised escalation and replacement and now they are telling me to send it for another repair? Why they didn't tell me about it two or so weeks ago? I got really frustrated and upset, but fine... I asked them to send me another UPS label so I can send the phone for another repair. Guess what... before I was getting UPS labels in 5 minutes after calling them, this time nothing from Samsung in my mailbox for a day! I called again last night... they say they experience technical difficulties. Are they waiting for warranty to expire? 40 days now... and saga continues. Wondering what is going to be next?
I do own a Samsung LCD TV and other computer equipment, but this experience makes me stay away from Samsung forever. Don't buy SAMSUNG!!!
