In my request I already told which case I would like to prefer and what is my shipping address. But I only got a standardized text block which tells me that I should confirm my shipping address and which color I prefer.
But the second response to this part of my request I got an order confirmation after 9 minutes with my selected new case. (see edit. ;))
For my second problem (the legendary reboot problem ) I also get a standardized text block. In this case I must deliver some additional information. I don’t write more for this part because it is the wrong thread.
In summary my first thought after the reply was that I’m a little bit sad about the missing apology for the late response. Especially because of the knowledge they use standardized text blocks.
I guess it depends on the reason giving for a support request.
Broken cases are usually handled on the spot (as far as I can judge by own experience and from this forum). That’s evident, as it’s a simple case of “send picture as proof for broken cover and we will send you a new one”. No analyzing lots of possible reasons for failure etc.
So I would assume, that it’s not last come first serve but “easy done, first done”, especially when solving those cases takes less than five minutes in all (1 sending standardized message; 2 checking IMEI, order-no and picture; 3 triggering delivery of new cover).
I created a ticket on december 8, Average response time is 16 days, I’m at more than double that time now and absolute no response appart from the automatic reply. Also no answer on a reminder from me.
Why is it taking sooo long?
I opened a ticket on x-mas eve; i.e. December 24th.
Color-pixeled display after dropping my phone.
As that was no warranty case anyway, I ordered a new display this year.
Everything fine since then.
Wanted to close my ticket right away, but somehow forgot about it (just posted it here).
Yesterday, February 12th, I received the response; exactly 50 days or a good 7 weeks later.
Everyone not going to pick up the phone for speeding things up, try some meditation and be patient.

Of course I replied immediately to let them know, that the file can be closed.
Received another message today: done! One case less, they have to worry about.
And as I come to think of it, it’s one case, that obviously ups the average response time, although I could and should have canceled it long ago. Sorry about that.
Hi Stefan, our ‘in-house’ team has 14 members (3 joined in October). We also collaborate with an external party (Xtrasource) that focuses on the support calls, but I can’t give you the exact number on their side.
Hi all, quick update on the Customer Support reply time
This is the status for the month of September, as you can see the team has been managing to keep the reply rate around 24h.
No changes in the team number, if you were wondering. Any questions, please let me know!
