smallbanner1

SSK Group, the manufacturer of Syska LED lights has launched ‘Syska Gadget Secure‘ a complete insurance cover for phones against accidental damages, water/fluid damage, theft, burglary and fire damage. Considering how indispensable mobile phones have become in everyone’s lives, getting an insurance for them would become imperative for many.

Just like the LED business, actor Irrfan Khan is endorsing this line of products as well.

Gadget Secure is an insurance for essential gadgets and electronics, although as of now it only covers mobile phones and smartphones. As per the website, it has 4 different insurance plans starting from INR 599 and states that the gadgets will be insured for the original price of the gadget, it is currently restricted to new devices only.

The claim process for damage and theft are separate and have been defined out on the website. Additionally users can use the Syska Gadget Secure app to check their policy, claim status etc.

The policy comes with other features like phone repair, anti-virus, phone tracking etc.

According a recent report by Gartner, the mobile user base in India is expected to grow to 815 million this year, with India’s 1.2 billion people, that is a high level of penetration. There are many people are willing to pay for extended warranty, and many who have to save up money to buy a high end phone. A mobile insurance will come as a boon for them. However considering in most of the plans, the insurance cost is not even 10% of the claim value, for a fragile commodity like mobile phones, this could be misused. While the theft claims mandate involvement of the police authorities, it is not clear how will the company rule out intentional damages from actual ones.

    There are several better options available in the market for securing your mobile. You should definitely go for GizmoHelp mobile protection plans. Personally, I am very satisfied with their service. Last month, my phone was damaged and their staff was very helpful throughout the claim process.

    Hi!

    I’m writing to you to inform you about the pain and harassment caused to me by your company Syska gadget secure. I have been a victim of the bad work attitude and fake promises for over 2 months by Syska gadget secure.

    This is in reference to a claim for getting my phone repaired, which was approved after a week on 14th oct CIN No.: 1510142775,

    From here the misery of my life began. I thought once approved phone would be picked up as declared with in a day or two from me. But what Syska team did went on over 2 months of mockery of my patience and good faith in the gadget security providing brand.

    Calling Syska has become like a painstaking ,time consuming another job in itself for me. Every time i complaint at toll free customer care and Mumbai based customer care (022 26598645) I would repeatedly inform them about my ordeal and every time I was bluntly told it would be taken care of but all was in vain, waste of my time and patience.

    False promises were made which have never been followed. To an extent that I think my patience has been made fun of with a Skyska representative telling me “kya bol rahe ho sir abhi tak nahi hua”
    And still no pick up was made after closing the call. Not even a single assurance call regarding why delay was happening or when the pick up guy would come in.

    I feel by taking the Syska secure plan I have been framed as its been only me who has followed up with my weekly complaints. regarding the same unresolved issue repeatedly.

    Due to the fake promises and continuous dilemma of when will be the phone, be repaired by Syska. I had to make a tough decision to investment to buy a new smart phone.

    Though repair of my phone whose payment had already been paid by me when I undertook the insurance policy has been never endingly delayed process.
    Also to be noted is the harassment caused to me with the fake promises for over period of months.

    As you know the phone is a basic necessity in today’s life with most of the work getting through online my work also suffered and couldn’t wait unassured and use a spare basic phone.

    Your my last hope, now I would require my claiming rights as Syska gadget secure is a big brand but has failed to provide me timely security. The prime reason customers purchase insurance is for peace of mind. Which was what I never got. It has been a continuous stress. Syska has failed to live by its motto.

    If the matters go worst from your end also. I would be left with no choice but to go legal , through consumer forums and court after this email/ message. As that is all I would be left with.

    Looking forward for your action to avoid further hassle, harassment and inconvenience.

    Kindly feel free to call me or email
    Me

    on 23 rd of December i wrote to syska on their Official Facebook Page and their email, but still they haven’t
    cared to get back and resolve the complain.

      Thanks Ritesh for writing this valuable review,I was confused about Syska and Times Global Insurance for my Sony Xperia Z5 insurance.I saw lots of advertisements of SYSKA and had heard lot of appreciation about Times Global Insurance.Now I m gonna definitely buy insurance from only Times Global Insurance at-least I don’t want such a mess at the time of taking claim.

      Hi Ritesh,
      This same thing has happening to me as well. Been nearly 2 months now since I gave my mobile phone in repair. Just out of curiosity, did you get your phone back? If yes, after how many days?

    I will strongly recommend Times Global insurance for your mobile phone insurance.
    M Monika Saxena from lucknow. I want to share my personal experience of mobile insurance. Few months back I brought a iPhone 6 from amazon.And very next day of delivery I did online insurance of my iPhone from Times Global Insurance.(it was recommended by my younger brother).
    Around 10 days later while travelling to kanpur I lost my mobile in a local taxi. (I forgot in taxi and unable to trace it).
    Anyway I called customer care of Times Global insurance and the customer service told me to send a complaint copy from a local police station to them via mail and also told me to update my bank account.
    I filed a simple complain and mailed the copy to them and boom. .I was surprised to saw that Within just 3 days I got rs 43500 in my bank account.
    That was a perfect example of commitment and customer service.
    Which I saw in Times Global insurance.

    I m Gyan Prakash , I purchased a Macbook Pro Worth Rs.76,500 from a online E-commerce website last year.And just 2 months back I took insurance of my laptop from TIMES GLOBAL INSURANCE through their website mymobileinsurance.com
    I paid Rs.4320 for One year Insurance Plan for my laptop and got a Policy document.When I took that plan I was assigned with a Relationship Manager Mr. Arun Kumar.He told me that on the event of theft or loss I will be paid 90% of my invoice value.Just 10 days Back I lost my Laptop in Rajeev Chowk Metro Station,New Delhi.
    I realized it I immediately file a complain and took a copy of it.I called customer care and was told me to Email that complain copy,I was Promised that I will get Money in 3-5 Working days but believe me it took then 25 Days to settle my claim.Every time I call them they say YOUR CASE IS STILL PENDING & CLAIM MANAGEMENT TEAM IS COMMUNICATING TO CONCERN POLICE STATION.
    What the hack it was, I should get my money and they should do their stuff after that, y a customer is getting harassed.Finally after 25 days I was paid just Rs.60,800 which was again a annoying act.When I asked reason that why you deduct 20% instead of 10% depreciation, then I was told that my laptop was 1 year old at the time of Insurance.
    Hey Com-on guys, You should have told me this at the time of insurance.
    Then y u cheat people like this.When you claim everywhere that you are Rank 1 Company in India for Mobile & Laptop Insurance then y You cheat people.
    A big brand never ever do this.This will surely give a negative impact on customers.

        Guy is talking about commitment that company is giving when selling their product. Company isn’t doing any favors by paying. They are bound to do it.

    This is a FRAUDE company!
    it does not give any insurance. i am one of its thousands of real victims. I went for the insurance after buying my sony z2 phone. just after one month my phone was stolen. when i claimed for it first they tried to befool me by asking me for various documents. i provided them each and every bit of the information they required. but there was no response. suddenly after two and a half months they said it orally that my claim has been denied. i cant go to consumer forum to lodge a case but they dont have a branch in Delhi. so i have to go to mumbai to lodge a case against them. so, Please don’t buy any insurance from SYSKA…
