Samsung Telecommunications America Samsung USA will not honor warranty, defective model, no recall, Richardson, Texas
*Consumer Comment: Lost in translation
Several days later, an email from Samsung indicated that the phone was NOT under warranty. When I called back and got through the first 4 transfers to different departments, I could barely understand the CS Rep, but she kept telling me that the phone WAS under warranty, but that it was NOT under warranty and they wanted $70 to repair it. I asked to speak to someone else and she would not hear of it.
This Captivate is one of four that we own and they all have peculiar problems. Even AT&T admitted to us that there was a "bad batch" of these models. It re-arranges icons and program settings on it's own, shuts off randomly by itself, cannot be recognized by a PC in order to transfer files or upgrade the Operating System. One of my other Captivates was upgraded to Gingerbread successfully, but is now locked in Landscape Mode, even after numerous factory re-sets and also cannot plug into a PC to be recognized for file transfers or other modifications. Mini Kies is useless and these phones have some type of driver problems
Why would Samsung tell us over the phone that the phone was covered under warranty, then not be able to explain to us why it is not when they receive it. The phones are all well cared for and look new, but I guess will go in the trash can. Most of our phones that are other brands last for years and multiple users.
