  1. I have given my Gionee Mobile M4 which is under warranty, to your service center in Thane, called QUICK Mobile Repairing Services on 22nd of Feb 2016. It has been more than 3 months now, I have not received my mobile. Every time when I talk to Quik r service center the only answer I get is” we dont know….company has not reciprocated to our queries” and they gave me another complaint number GC16400005247. The following are the various complaint numbers i have received from gionee but not my mobile.. GC16200096862, GC16400005247, GC16400025326, GC16500048992. First of all why do you sell your mobiles if you cant take care of them after the sales. why do keep a service center who cant provide service. why do you harass your customers. My request now is if you cant repair it kindly give my money back along with the interest…
