Default Beware Mobiletechvideos!

I just wanted to let you guys know about the poor experience my friend has had with this company. I will start by saying that I have used the service before and was very satisfied. So when my friend's Galaxy S4's charging port failed I recommended mobiletech to her. She sent the phone in and that is where the fun began. She did receive an email saying that the phone was received, fast forward two weeks and she has heard nothing about the phone, she emails them and gets no response. After a few days she finds a number and calls. She is told that "Josh" is out and will return her phone call. She finally gets a phone call back the next day and is told that the part had to be ordered, she then inquires why she was notified of the delay, they apparently have nothing to say about that. She was told that they expected the part to be in within the week and that she should have her phone back in about a week. Two weeks have gone by and again no word, not calls, no emails, nothing about what is happening with her phone. IT HAS BEEN OVER 5 WEEKS!. Of course I feel responsible because I recommended her to this company. I am also disappointed because I was going to send a phone in the get repaired. I know a lot of people have had good experiences with this company, as have I, but based on this recent experience I would caution you guys about using them. I will update this post if anything changes.

This is a fairly well known company around here, and like I said I used them before with no issue. Another week has gone by and she still has heard nothing. I was secretly hoping that someone from there would see this post and maybe look in on the issue, but I guess not. I guess I will have to start leaving negative reviews around the internet and see if that gets their attention.

Default My negative review...

Sorry to hear about your friend's problem with this company. I'm going to write about my experience with this company...which I have to say is just as negative. In short, I placed an order with them to remotely fix my EFS. After setting an appointment up, I never heard another word from them; even after emailing them....STILL NO REPLY. So I was thinking about titling the post...

It's strange with all the great reviews this would be happening. My phone was signed for on Wed and I haven't heard anything but I wish they'd just say they received it (someone signed for it) so I'm hoping come Monday I'll here something. I paid for faster service and haven't heard back via email or phone yet

Default Mobile Tech Videos - what's up??????

I sent my Galaxy sIII in to them for a "hard brick" problem (yes I tried all OTHER ways before resorting to this). The Phone was sent on 7 July and they received it on 9 July. When I logged on it was shown as being "completed". I had hoped that the phone would be returning shortly. After a week still no phone. I sent them emails..... no answers. I called them and left voice mail...... no answer. I contacted them om Facebook... no answer. I had thought, from people on XDA, that this was a legit service but now I am having second thoughts. If I don't hear from them soon I'll just deny the credit card payment and cut my losses. This really sucks. I hope no one else has this bad of an experience.

I saw somewhere on XDA that they were in the process of relocating and once that was finished they would be able to get everything done since they are so backed up.
