Try the tracking number on this website http://ipsweb.ptcmysore.gov.in/ipswebtracking/

Most likely its at customs awaiting clearance. It should start moving soon.

Not exactly. Thats the system default to show next office as Mumbai. It should have reached your post office today and you should be getting it in a day or two. If not visit the post office and enquire once.

What's the return policy on Amazon these days for mobile phones?

I recently learned from a friend, Amazon is asking for a DOA certificate from the phone manufacturer to even accept a return request. I am assuming it is to be obtained from the service center. And this is within 7 days of receiving the product.

Compared to this, FK seems better. They sent a guy to physically verify the defect and issued a refund in a few days - personal experience.

Can you share why you returned? Any issues with the performance?

As audioholic has mentioned the item has reached Bangalore and should reach your nearest post office. It says Mumbai because in case the item does not get delivered it will be sent back to the seller via Mumbai. But thats after 3 attempts I believe.

Hope you get it soon

Experience counts. I received the product yesterday, though the packaging was horrible, the contents inside were/are safe.

That particular piece had an issue with touch not working randomly and also ghost touch issues.

Went on to order a Redmi Note 3 again from Flipkart this time and this unit works just fine . The performance is snappy, the fingerprint sensor works like a charm. No heating issues as well even with 4G on always.

Here is a new low from Amazon India. I bought a few Audio CDs from Amazon India and received the first one today. When i opened the jewel case i found a Frontech CDR in place of the audio cd. I put the CDR in the computer and it turned out to be a blank disc.

Here are the pics:

This is the product page:

Already gave a return request:

Now worried about the rest of the CDs in the order:

I just gave a 1star review on the product page. Hope it will be published. I forgot about giving seller review/feedback rating will do that also.

I mostly buy only amazon fulfilled items even if its slightly more expensive as i was of the belief that since its amazon dispatched there would be some sort of assurance on the genuinety of item being sold. I guess theres none.

Contact them for a solution. It is likely that they may be pleased to know that they have a pile of blank discs that they think are not.

If this is the same company that has a shop in Chennai, then it is not some internet fly-by-night, but an old established company.
