Don't Get Cheated!!!
By Thankachan Joseph, 86 months ago
I am really disappointed and discouraged for purchasing a model of HTC 516. i have send this piece nearly 3 times for repair. It is not able to detect the SD card... i bought it for the purpose of recording and taking snaps of certain session of mine, since i am a student.. It has given me lot of disappointments and discouragement nearly for the past three months, because I could not accomplish the task which i should have done by now.. Kindly make the arrangements to replace the useless piece... Otherwise what is the point in having the guarantee you are providing.. I am fed up of visiting the customer care centres and waiting there for almost hours.. don't discourage me.. please..(read more)
