The story of my phone repair.

The Prestashop Stripe module has had to be put on hold for a bit. Busy times.

In moany news. I recently had to get my LG G3 repaired, because it stopped working after just 4 weeks. Chrome would crash and it was getting very hot – even for the normally warm G3. So I moved to Firefox where graphics errors would randomly shut down the browser – Looks like the graphics chip was dying. Then one day, nothing, phone didn’t power on, not even to that reset mode, nothing happened when you plugged it into the computer. Dead.

This is where the epic adventure of my phone repair begins.

The local Carphone Warehouse told me to ring LG to repair my phone, fine I thought, who can repair it quicker and better than LG themselves. (ha.)
Starts all very well, they send a Jiffy bag to my address ‘No body needs to be in, not signed for’ great. Arrives after a day or two, speedy. Pop the phone into the bag and send it on its way.
Ring them up a few days later, they’ve received it, excellent, and have started the repair, 3-5 working days to repair it. Annoying but manageable.
I borrow my sisters old Blackberry with a few keys missing for the interim.

I wait around,  for the allotted 5 working days, give them another ring.

LG: They don’t have the parts to fix your phone, they’re being ordered in, it will take another week probably

Me: They, you mean you don’t have the parts?

LG: Its repaired by a third party.
So much for my initial happinesses of LG fixing it….

ME: Ok… So why don’t you have the parts, its a brand new phone?

LG: Because its brand new they don’t have the parts. They have to order them from Korea.
Worst. Excuse. Ever.

ME: Riight.. So another week?

LG: Yeh maybe, we’re not sure when the parts are arriving. Call us back next week.

Excellent. So starts the first of many mishaps. Part two coming soon..
