Samsung Support Centres (UK) - Is this normal?

Hi,

Can anyone shed any light on this for me I am truly at my wit's end getting the run around with several Samsung departments? 

My phone locked me out so after a couple of hours of being passed about by Technical, Sales, Parts, and sales support I was told to take my phone to a Support Centre which I did. Now, they apparently cannot locate my phone, so this is going into my 4th week with no device. It would appear that the Support Centres are not Samsung but are franchises and each takes nothing to do with the other. As I got the phone thru Samsung finance am I expected to still make a payment or should I say another payment? Has anyone had an experience like mine and how did you resolve it?

Definitely don't stop payments as this could affect your credit rating. It's a third party finance company that your finance is with.
Your going to have to contact Samsung Customer Support and tell them the Support centre has lost your phone.
Give them as many details. Who you went to, what date and approximate time. If you have a case number as well.
You will have to explain the situation if they don't already have it on record.
This is a really unfortunate situation and I hope you can get it fixed soon

Hi @Sahiera 

 

Can you clarify as you say " locked "  and not lost your phone ?

So if your locked out Have you looked at options such as  https://www.samsung.com/ae/support/mobile-devices/how-to-unlock-the-galaxy-device-when-you-forgot-th... And there is the method in find my mobile find-my-mobile. 

As suggested by @Glenntech please don't stop payments as this could be reported as a default casuing possible difficulties with your Credit File.

When i was locked out when trying to factory reset i visited a Samsung Experience Store who had the software to unlock it for me.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help.

If a service centre has lost your phone they owe you a replacement as they are responsible for it whilst they have it. I am presuming you kept the receipt they gave you when they accepted your phone

Since the phone is under finance the finance company has a vested interest in the phone I suggest phone them and explaining the problem to them and quote the consumer act

Week 6:

Just an update for everyone who took the time to respond to the post from 2 weeks ago. Nothing has changed, not a thing but I must have by now spoken to everyone within Samsung UK.

However, I am now convinced they are all robots.

Hi, @CarlH  Thank you, I am not sure what anyone can do as so many people have allegedly looked into my dilemma. But you are welcome to try.

Apparently, still paying for my phone is ro my detriment as it signifies I still want the device even after all this time of being lied to. 🙃
