Electronics Complaints

Long sad story. Gate motor started giving problems more than 2 months ago. Jean came to fix it. Gate would work for a day or 2, give problems again. Had to replace motor. Worked for 2 days. Problems getting hold of Jean. Always "out of cellphone range". Bearing ceased while trying to fix - had to replace casing. Have to "chase" him to get anything sorted. Would never take responsibility, passing the buck. Jean would (when I got hold of him) refer me from one business to the next. Always...

Vodacom is the worst network to ever exist. They are liars and thieves and as long as your monthly installment is paid they could not care if they deliver the worst ever service, as they currently are or not. Complaining doesn't help either, as they shrug it off and threaten to blacklist should one cancel the contract and not pay over R3000 for a faulty handset, that caused me to suffer a mugging that led to expensive medical expenses as the faulty handset again was out of order and I could...

Got an ipad mini only a few months ago. It does not want to charge. Customer care say it has a scratch on so they won't fix or replace. Still have 16months on this stupid contract! They steal my money as I must pay without being able to use the damn thing!!! Ifix said it is the charger, they can't get into the ipad, so can't fix it either! Totally disgusted with Vodacom. They are sharks. We are spending thousands on them a month! Will definitely chuck them for another company who respect...

I CANNOT PAY FOR SOMETHING THAT IS NOT TO MY...

We purchased a new router from 8ta on the 18th of August 2013. We paid in advance and signed a contract (thinking it would work since we previously used their mobile internet). It doesn't work at all! We have made at least twenty phone calls and been to their office in Canal Walk, Cape town (the place we purchased it)several times to explain that we simply cannot access the internet. Every time we get promised that they will get back to us within 72 hours, a promise they haven't kept a single...

Afternoon Team Tomorrow it will be five weeks that I am awaiting the repair of my Sony 43" Bravia and yet no confirmed answer on the resolve of this concern. Clearly there is no interest from Sony SA nor Furniture City Strubens Valley to resolve this in the interest of the customer but rather the pointing out of their processes. With the result I have two minors on school holiday without a television at home for a week now and a client that is paying a DSTV as well as television instalment...

I took out a cell phone contract almost 2 years ago with Altech Autopage for R100 per month for my Blackberry phone. For the first year things went okay and my phone bill never exceeded about R150 pm. Then in November and December last year my bill suddenly went up and I could not understand why. It happened again at the beginning of this year. I checked my account and saw I was being billed for GPRS when I already had BIS for my Blackberry. I phoned them on 5th March to find out what was...

Firstly I received a flyer advertising the integrated heat pump product for a rate of R11499 with an asterisk next to it stating clearly 'All prices include vat, installation and Eskom rebate'.. When I call to book and make payment suddenly there's a R3500 installation fee and they have all sorts of excuses. They have since changed their flyer. I negotiated a new installation fee and paid upfront, I even sent them a picture of where the installation was to take place (replacing existing...

Enough is enough! Vodacom is an inefficient and incompetent organisation. On 23 March, 2013, I went to the Vodacom shop at Clear Water mall to upgrade my phone. I had a Black berry Curve and was told that I was entitled to a Black Berry Curve. All the required documentation was signed and processed and I was handed the phone. It was not tested before it was given to me. After a few days, I realised that the phone was defective. It was over heating and the internet connection was...

8ta gave me a phone that was not working and after 9 months they are unable to solve my problem. They have the worst service I have ever recieved from a provider I would suggest that if you have a broken phone it would be easier and cheaper to buy a new phone.

Ever since joining the MTN service provider I have had nothing but trouble and poor service. I am greatly disappointed in the way I am treated as a customer and that my complaints are never dealt with and that nobody seems to care about my difficulties. I signed up for a 3G data contract around April/May 2012. I work in the civil construction industry and am therefore required to travel around the country much for my work. I needed a mobile internet connection. My first town of work was...

I also have problems with my Sony xperia Go. My service provider want to take responsibility on a manufacturing problem, they even replaced the handset with another Xperia Go, i contact Sony, they told me to de-activate certain features to get optimal value out of the phone battery life. If this is the case, why did they put on the phone the features, the phone doesnt come cheap its not acceptable that for a high price phone you have to minimise your usage, that is daylight robbery.

I ordered and paid R12000 for a Panasonic Camera from Waytel Electronics in Port Elizabeth. I also paid R200 delivery fees, and they promised that the camera would be delivered within 48 hours. The camera hasn't arrived, and I received an e-mail asking me to pay another R4550 for import taxes! They didn't even tell me the camera was being imported - they told me it was coming from a Warehouse in Port Elizabeth. They hung up on me when I was complaining on the phone, and they have told me...

I have never experienced such bad service as I experienced from Vodacom and Vodacare. My phone was handed in to repair. The list of excuses as to why the phone is not ready yet is endless. Vodacare did not submit my insurance claim forms, I eventually had to go to the store to make sure it was faxed, this is 2 days later. Then they order the wrong parts, I have to wait another week. I complaint to Vodacom, who seems just as incompetent as their Vodacare branch. I spoke to Wayne at...

My children were at home and experienced an armed robbery yesterday around 13h45. They pressed the emergency panic button but ADT did not respond. My son was held at gunpoint and locked in a barhroom. ADT phoned my husband who was at work to check if everything was okay. Surely this is wrong - can we say that everything is not fine if we are being held up? The SAPS was at my home before ADT was. What exactly are we paying for?

I recently went to City View MTN outlet asking them to port my number from Vodacom back to them, I met all the criteria required &I was told it will take about 48hours to get the process sorted out. I had some issues with Vodacom with them not releasing my number as some smart Alec extended my contract for another 24months without my consent, however I managed to rectify this issue allowing MTN to now port my number. On the 15/12/2011 it was confirmed that its fine & the port will take place...
