PHONE WARRANTY: is it worth knowing?

Aug 3, 2013

I have been with good term with the warranty of Samsung. Just one trivia. All accessories have 6 months warranty as long as there is no physical or water damage. Haha. but none of their accessories breaks in less than 6 months unless you use the accessories like a 3 years old.. Another good thing with Samsung is when I first had a problem with my phone (well i consider that a physical damage - but still in warranty. oh yeah!), Brought the phone the next day and after 2 freakin days. I GOT IT BACK. Well I'll compare it again to an emerging brand. quality versus the cost. When we first laid our hands. I asked the seller. What is included in the warranty? 1 week replacement for accessories as long as it is a factory defect and 1 year for the phone. And here we are and we tried the freakin phone. CM HYPER- just like flare, just bigger screen. And so it started. I'll publicized it. Our phone was brought to their service center last 6.29.2013. And guess what? it is 08.03.2013. not so long aye?

So our question now. does the warranty given is really worth it. after all the repair time was more than the TAT provided. I'll be posting a print screen sooner. when CM Customer Service texted us and said, HURRAY! your phone is now in CHINA!! that was very INCONVENIENT.. hahaha

I know that it is wrong to compare an emerging brand with a KNoWN brand. But what can we say, if you want to have a good review. better make a good service. If you have any objections with these. please tell me so. comment here or email me.  Anyways, it is really worth knowing it, you'll prevent any future charges if you know enough the warranty of the phone brand you are using! Actually warranty adds up to the payment you are making.

EMAIL SET UP HELP

EMAIL SET UP HELP    

Email Syncing is one of the biggest problem when you are in a company and your company has a corporate email. It does not have an automatic configuration in an android device, you either set up POP3 or IMAP or a HEX -Microsoft hosted exchange.  Let's see first the differences
 
POP3: sends it to the device you were able to access it to
IMAP: You are reading from the server, can be accessed by multiple gadgets.
HEX: servers are administered and maintained by the company I.T. department ( I don't prefer to have this.. DAMMIT! IT!)
 
So it just matters on what type of access you want. It can be limited or vastly accessible. OK lets go to the set up of an email. Normally in an android device, one you have selected the option to use the corporate email, it will detect a manual set up. I'll give a few insights with an email.
 
when you are going to set it up, it only matters for the incoming and outgoing server and the port number. Normally it will be auto detected for the port number but for the email. Normally an incoming server is mail.domain.ext (*ext is the extension whether .com or .net etc) and the port number is provided and the outgoing should be good also. just remember your email address is the whole USER ID for the email and remember the password. in case that you want to test setting up an email using the email option, you can use this test email.
 
DOMAIN NAME: PINKTIKBALANG.COM (yup my domain)
password: P@ssword
 
so try the email option in your phone and try to use this test mail
incoming server: mail.pinktikbalang.com
port:autodetect*
outgoing server: smtp.pinktikbalang.com
port:autodetect*
 
TRY POP3 and IMAP, it is capable 
 
You can try to use that email to practice set up of email. You can also always delete an email in the list (if you have multiple emails,). Deletion of the email account is under the MENU button and select settings and there'll be option to deleted. PLS DONT SEND SPOOF EMAILS TO OTHER. That Email is a test email. :)
 
*don't change the port settings it is on autodetect.
**please use common sense. emails are sent via internet connection, you need internet connection
 
 
THINGS TO KNOW:
 
-if server error shows up, please have the email troubleshooted by your email provider. They have resyncing and reindexing for server errors.
 
-port information is provided by email provider
 
-Latency may not be due to the phone but now on another case.
 
-try K9-MAIL for the email services that you want to sync.
