72 hours had come and gone. I barely noticed because I was trying to get ready for finals. Once all that was done (I passed them by the way), I began placing phone calls. Huawei’s tech support really does leave much to be desired. While this may be something you wouldn’t necessarily notice when calling tech support, nobody really knows what the other person is doing. As a person who has worked in tech support, I didn’t have informational conversations with my coworkers about a case that I’m working on. If the customer was some sort of outlier (very nice, total douche, etc.), we’d talk about that, but never about the specifics of a case. This is why we have ticketing systems and make sure informative notes are made about the case in the event the customer calls back. Either Huawei didn’t have one, or it was down for the two months I had to interact with them.
Every time I would call them, they would act as if I had never called in before. Despite giving them my ticket number, I’d have to answer the same questions over and over again. Each time I called, I’d get a different response about what would be happening with my phone. Some told me that there were still collecting information from other users. Others stated Huawei US and Huawei “proper” were working on a plan to replace the phones. Each phone call was like a delicate snowflake. No two were the same.
One day I was greeted by a email from them. Here are the contents:
