“Dead phone syndrome”

Written on: 25/01/2013 by germanbuster (1 review written)

Beware -had phone for 6 months from 3 on contract-phone was the best thing since sliced bread and blows the iphone out of the water except last month it was just sitting there lonely so i went to talk and play with it and it did not respond-the black screen of death-the phone had bricked,no amount of taking battery in out could reboot it.Phoned 3 and they said this was becoming a problem with a number of handsets and their mother boards,they would replace/fix straight away (under guarantee still-phew)
/took it into the 3 shop and they told me another customer had brought in his phone that morning too with the same problem,i felt a little better however that was crushed when they handed me a replacement HTC wildfire phone to be getting on with
I waited and waited and it took about 3 weeks to get the phone call that it was back in the shop-they gave me the phone back-without the battery-Doh!! and on forms showed that it had needed parts replacing and soldering done-had to buy a cheap battery from a market stall and hey ho the phone works perfect again-until the next 6 months? who knows
