During my first year in school, we were having an engineering drawing class. The lecturer warned us to switch off/silent our phone... Everyone did... Except one of my friends beside me... While the class was going on, he received a text message.. Although the sound wasnt loud... He decided to bring out his phone to switch off the phone, the lecturer immediately saw him, collected the phone and smashed it with a big stone... It was an infinix phone... The was part of it was that the text was from mtn... And i was planing on buying that phone because my techno phone was already misbehaving
.
.
I'll never forgive engr Dele and mtn....
.
Please who has mtn cheat.... I want to make sure that company goes bankrupt...

My neighbour in my shop repairs phones and whenever customers make such complains, it almost always turns out to be either bad charger or spoilt charging port. mainwhile, i sell original charger in my shop and i can deliver to you anywhere you are. grin
TonyeBarcanista:
I don't know why Tecno phones are like that. However, you should get original charger- Oriamo is what I'll recommend. If the situation persist, please you have to change that charging port.

mine was on a Sunday afternoon , I just finished the semester exams and I decided to travel home to relax a little bit before resuming for the following semester, (just 2 weeks holiday) I refused to go to the church that very day, my mom was disturbing me and was trying to force me to go to church, as a sharp guy I told her I don't have transport fare and money for offering (I was lying though) she gave me 500 naira that very day, I collected the money, left home and went directly to a viewing center, played bet9ja, and ps2 till around 12 then came back home, was having 200 balance from the 5h so I decided to go and recharge with the remaining 2h, my infinix hot 4 fell down on the road and went off immediately, I just knew it was God that punished me, wanted to repair it and they told me to bring 18600 naira, the panel was damaged already, I promised myself I won't spend that amount of money on a stupid phone.
finally I was able to recoup 3k from my 38k by selling the screen.

I have been given 9 days to return the phone, else my money will be given to the seller and I will have to forfeit my money. Please whoever has returned an order from Nigeria to a seller in China should kindly inform me of how he or she did it. Thanks in anticipation of your assistance.

Mine is two different experience that happen within this month of April
My itel 1508 was stolen on the 24th of march just last month while I was sleeping outside my hostel due to the heat.it left me frustrated,depressed, devastated and frustrated.
Then I have no other option but to withdraw 23k to buy a brand new techno F2.Another big issue started which was the Android OS consuming my data like a hungry lion. I did subscription of 1.5 Gig but with 6 hours the whole data was gone, I check my data usage and discovered that Android OS consume 95% of it. I did all the setting I could do still no solution in fact I gave more than 8 computer guys who were extremely brilliant still no solution, before I knew it tears start rolling from my eyes, my life was now in a state of pitable dilemma.
Then last week I just log onto my quora account and share my problem and a software guy from Singapore told me to download an app called DATAEYE from playstore and use it to control my usage. I did exactly what he said and to my utmost surprise the problem is solve, my data now runs at a normal rate. It was then I knew the distance between quora and nairaland.

dataeye has been in use here for like 2 yrs now

I don’t want to say it was the worst because it was the best thing to happen to me. I quit drinking and as a result outgrew the negative things weighing me down. You literally get smarter and feel no desire to fit in where you don’t you stand out more. Phone was stolen but within a year I had given out one and I then had the opportunity to travel and then bought a new one in cash. Someone came to steal it again but I was awake this time spiritually I saw the nigga in the window the second time we all crashed at this crib he came downstairs to take it but I was awake like 20 mins before and had already hid the phone. I left that day knowing we all have that voice that warns us when we are around dangerous people LISTEN

It was a sacrifice counting pounds at the time lots of shoes and bags I could have bought plus perfume but an investment pays off

It happened a while back, not recently. But yeah, the pain was numbing lol. To top it off, I spent about a week using a useless phone while my baby was at the shop getting her face fixed tongue I was miserable the entire time. You never know how attached you are to your phone until something like that happens lol.

It was during the reign of Nokia, I use to have that Nokia phone that looks like coffin⚰ anything I'm chatting on 2go with it the keypad will stop working, then i discover i can be using toothbrush and petrol to clean the panel and sun it, before the keypad will come to normal. I did that like two times daily. That single act make me lose a lot of weight that period. Thank God for the kinds of phones � i have now. Very soft.


So many mentally unstable people roaming freely in Nigeria these days. grin

I had an ugly experience with my Tecno K7.......hanging always, popping up different apps at the same time and aaking me to close them. Without closing those apps, the phone wont respond. Like if u have experienced similar wahala.

My worst experience in 2013 was going to obasanjo shopping complex in Minna to repair Nokia C5 mini.
It happened that I was apprentice then with my uncle who sells electronics.
He sent me to carry our goods which just from Lagos via minna.
I used the opportunity to go and repair the phone with hope that they have not offloaded the goods.

Men the trouble started when the started repairing the phone and it took almost 2 hours...
The goods was since offloaded and my number was off, my uncle came to the scene and was worried what might happened to me...

I nearly piss on my boxer, till today I still wondered how I told him that I lost the phone in taxi and was waiting for the man to return back.....

Many more experienced, but since I bought tecno l9 plus, I have nothing to worry again over a year now....
I think tecno phones are always great and nice to get

Re: What Is Your Worst Phone Experience? by Halezis(m): 1:00pm On Apr 13, 2019
I lost 3 phones last year. When i say 3, i mean they were stolen at different occasions and not once.

Was using a Tecno w3 from 2017 and it got stolen when i went for night class. that's few weeks before Easter 2018. Stayed for 3 months without any phone. Then, June, i was one of the first persons to buy infinix hot 6 when it was newly launched. Almost everyone around my area was envying the phone. Then, there was blackout in my area for days and i needed to do one assignment with it. So i went to one bet9ja shop to charge. They ganged up and stole the phone. Yes i knew it was a gang up because it was a very swift operation, got distracted by some guy asking if i could help him set up something on his phone only to finish and couldn't find a phone that was in between my legs. That was in August. So the phone literally lasted for a month and few weeks in my hand. Chaiii! Then went home long vacation, after a month, saved up some money and borrowed mumsy to complete and got a neww Samsung j6 phone in the first week of October. Mid December phone lost again but this one i can't even explain. Went for an event and came back only to notice my phone which was in my pocket since isn't there again. Sadly since then, i haven't been able to use any good phone up till nowsad


So, with all these experience someone will still tell me not to support jungle justice? Just wait till i see anyone caught stealing phone. Nonsense

Re: What Is Your Worst Phone Experience? by luizpippo(m): 1:39pm On Apr 13, 2019
In 2008, I bought a fairly used BIRD flip at Computer village, any night I did xtracool, the battery would swell, I would buy another, I got tired and took a Motorola my mum ditched, the keypads were so bad that I was using Biro to press it.
My bb curve 3 fell from my pocket in Zaria and I kicked it on it way down. I was running in the rain that night, and I bent down to pick the battery thinking it was the extra battery that fell. When I discovered what fell, I came back in the rain, groping like I was searching for nipples on the bed.
Then I bought a bold 3 from my idiot friend, he never told me it uses glo alone, imagine suffering both battery and network issues.
Finally, some idiots picked my pocket at Upper Iweka inside a Keke. The Keke and the other four passengers were a band of thieves
