I face an issue that proximity sensor turns on and never gets inactivated and have to turn off and turn on handset. So I found the Indiranagar service center (Bangalore) and found such disastrous service. When I called them for about 30 times before they had always answered the phone but never heard anything, as there was a lot of noice from background. Thinking its an issue with my phone, I walked in directly to discover some pathetic facts of their GREAT SERVICE. nnThere is no If's and But's to track any problems in Xolo customer service. True facts I discovered when I visited Indiranagar Xolo service center :-nn* Phone rings, they receive the call and dont talk and just keep it like that. n* No one user who is visiting is happy about the service offered. n* One lady was complaining that she had a battery problem and for the 6th month when she came, service person is mentioning, there is no stock, please go to Rajajinagar branch. She shouted at the top of her voice why he did not tell her when she handed over 6month back. n* There were 30 - 40 people who have handed the phone and had not been serviced atleast for 3 months in minimum. n* Now when I visit the center, executive mentions, "Sir, today irate customers are too much. Can you please come after 1 week?" I asked him if I had a free auto filled with petrol serviced by Xolo? n* They did mention the issue resolution may take 3 months as they have to ship it to Noida for service and shipping days extra. n* One person came and snatched a phone and went off saying repair my phone which is lying with you for 6 months and all 40 users were supporting him, which was a hilarious scene!nMy bought phone is working only that I cant hold it to my ears to talk and now either use a headset/Bluetooth/speaker to call experiencing this pathetic service. nnTrust me guys, you lose your money and get frustrated if any issue is seen with your phone and has to go for repair! Never ever buy any other Xolo phone
