I called amazon; they listened to the problem, successfully initiated return, provide me another invite to reorder the phone, and delivered it within two days from the day of ordering. That’s the power of the customer service at amazon. See, my problem was rare, but they didn’t fail to provide me a unique solution to it. They listened to it, and called some senior officers, and decided all together the solution. What I liked about them is the team effort they put into a solution. They did it for me, they valued single customer, though, maybe they could have just ignored the problem, but they didn’t. They also gave me a confirmation call after receiving my order, as to see that everything went well, and whether I am satisfied or not.
