Customer Question
Purchased the apple iphone...

Purchased the apple iphone 8 Plus on December 5 2017 from apple store in Kendall Miami. Start using it about 2 weeks later everything was fine until the battery got low. I tried recharging and the phone didnot recharge all i got was a black screen. I went on the site to troubleshoot the problem I did what was instructed and still didnt work. I as so frustrating for me because I live in the caribbean and I couldnt take a plane to go to Miami just to return the phone. I took the phone to the only apple store on the island and was told that they cannot provide me support because they only service the Latin American /Caribbean region. I may be going back to the US in about a month and I am planning to take the phone back to the apple store that i purchased in the first place. I Sent them an email about a week ago the store directly and noone has responded to my query or address my concerns.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a force reboot on your iPhone (pressing and holding the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons for 10 seconds)?

Yes I have done that and it still didnt work

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I live in the Cayman Islands and the phone was purchased at the apple store in Dadeland Mall Florida

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
