Samsung opens first customer service centre in KSA

Grant Holt

In all fairness its more than likely Samsung isnt the problem, but the local distributors.

I had problem with my Apple iPhone. Etisalt just fobbed me off that Id done something to it that invalidated the maintenance warranty. I knew I hadnt, so I took it to the Apple store in UK on my next visit. After inspecting it they replaced it free of charge with a new one that day, as its covered by Apples international warranty!

Two very different customer care environments!

not in the same boat

They just dont care here

Shame shame

samsung fan

Looks like the Apple cult has got people asking banal questions on the forum!


@samsung between the lines. all the people who posted here have bought samsung products. i for one can confirm to u i never even touched iphone. i am an android and bb mobile fan. unfortunately samsung spoilt my love for android.


you forgot to mention that if they didn't like it they could always go back to their home countries...


Just do as I did, stop buying SAMSUNG products. Why do we require their customer service? Because most of the time their products are faulty. I am a victim of this and since then stopped even looking at samsung products ultimately.


I have two Samsung phones, one has a scratch on the screen but nothing major. Other than that, everything is fine.

I'm not actually expecting a response but considering most commenters here seem to think this is a Samsung complaints forum, I didn't want to feel left out.


Good One Chris!

I bought Samsung S3 for less than 6 months and it was new then it developed some problem i took my cell phone to customer service in KSA Al Madbuli in Riyadh Khorais street (because i have golden guaranteeing) they told me should change mother board so it was took 21 days , they gave me my cell phone and told me they change the mother board , 10 days later i found that posterior camera not working i returned back to them , i was surprised they told me we can not do any thing for you because you do maintenance for your mobile out side ,i told them that i never been out side for maintenance and i swear for them but they did not believe me and they insist and told me (you lost your guarantee and if you want to do maintenance you should give us 1000 Saudi riyals for new mother board) and it was unfair I talk to several friends and they mentioned same stories regarding the maintenance of Samsung in same customer service office I don not know really where is the problem ? is the probl

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7" which gone wrong by "No sound" just after using 1 week gave for repairs in Yanbu - Jarir Bookstore on 6th September, 2012, (Order No. 3086463) is not repaired yet... Its being more than one and a half months its being with them..

Could you please help me to get it back rectified as I became a most unfortunate / disappointed customer of Samsung...

Expecting your prompt action and reply.


Hi Jacob,
Iam also victim as you are I have no clue what to do thou I use most of the Samsung appliance, problem is service. There should be something like consumer protection act. Like and me there are tons of people who are suffering with Samsung service thou there are Terms and Conditions applies but no one cares. Lets hope one day when but will improve the quality of service.
