The centre which is the highest level of customer care and was previously located in Abuja, was brought to Lagos to meet the needs of its numerous consumers located in Lagos, the commercial nerve centre of the nation.

Head of Care, Nokia West Africa, Mr. Silvin Sinan, said, L3 centre is to serve as referral for all the collection points and care centres across the nation.

He said, arrangements are on to introduce mobile care centre in order to reach as many customers as possible across the nation.

“For phones purchased within Nigeria and are still under warranty, customer with any problem can submit the phones in any of the collection points and they are fixed for free,” he said.

Sinan further advised customers wanting to purchase Nokia phones to go to recognized dealers to be sure of the quality of the phone.

“We also advise customers to determine the warranty status of their phones by calling *#06# to get the IMEI number. Type IMEI and space and IMEI number and send to 32053. This is to check if your phone has warranty in Nigeria, if it thus it will tell you okay,” he said.

He however, said that for phones whose warranty have expired, it does not mean that the phone is fake, adding that Nokia does not toy with after-sale services.

“We invite them to our customers’ forum to find out their expectations and we strive to meet those needs,” he said.
