STARHUB FLIPS PRATA, PROMISE ME REPLACEMENT PHONE BUT GO BACK ON ITS WORD!

I have an issue with starhub's SmartSupport. I just signed a new contract extension with starhub thinking oh "finally improved better service level." But I was very very wrong. The sales personnel attended to me tell me to sign up the smart support and all in case i lose my phone or what not and its to protect me. Did not explain much about it, but only mainly to replace my phone when lost or damaged. And so fortunate I am, my brand new phone has to be left with the box on the MRT this morning. Immediately i called smart support thinking i might get helped after all. The customer service say no i am not allowed to get a replacement. Isn't this a form of acknowledge and how can STARHUB not honor it? Is SmartSupport a way to make that extra $10 a month or to give consumers a sense of false security? Is this the world class standard? Do you know how much frustration I am feeling while your customer service say we reserve our right to terminate your SMartSupport. I told you yes you do but have you terminated it? If you have not, you have to honour it. I am very disappointed. Starhub used to go that extra mile thats why i switch from singtel. But soon, you are looking like singtel, behaving like singtel, maybe soon, the same way to make maximum profits out of consummer. I expect a call from someone who can make a sound decision.

More worrisome is the fact that the phone in question was a replacement Galaxy Note 7, one that was deemed to be safe by Samsung. The phone had burned through the carpet and scorched the subfloor of the plane.

AUTHORITIES PUT MRT REFURBISHMENT PLANS ON HOLD

Replacement trains will require a long time to procure as these contracts needs to be tendered, evaluated and awarded before the train can be built. Trains are also not available off the shelf and require time to be built. As such, commuters may still need to put up with the unreliability for quite awhile until the new trains arrive.
