Current Support Status

Judging from my personal experience during the last weeks, they simply might lack personnel due to lots of them calling sick with a heavy (feverish) cold / flu and the like. In my business there were days, when only 50% showed up for work (and some of them clearly should have stayed in bed as well ;)).
At least I wouldn’t be surprised, if it’s that simple an explanation.


For completeness: The first reply in my advanced “cracked” case finally arrived after 32 days or 22 workdays.

Edit: The first part of the second reply only needs 9 minutes.(!) :heart_eyes:

I asked the same question last Monday. I got a reply the next day, while a new cover was ordered on Wednesday…

Did the content of the reply meet your request?


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. :smirk:
But the second response to this part of my request I got an order confirmation after 9 minutes with my selected new case.:heart_eyes: (see edit. ;))

For my second problem (the legendary reboot problem :cry:) 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.


They could make an additional text block that contains an apology. (Yes, I am serious!)


How do they handle the service cases? Last in, first out? Other people like me are waiting for ages :unamused:.

Have a look at this post:

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.
If you don’t want to wait that long, check this advice: #contactsupport

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. :frowning:
