This is for those who are eagerly waiting in queue to get this phone. I bought this phone on 14th February (the day it was released). After using it for two weeks, this phone developed issues with microphone, accelerometer and camera. The worst part is that the service center has no clue as to what to do with the complaints in A116. I got this phone sumbitted at the Noida (UP) service centre. They are now saying that it will take 2 weeks to get the "parts" replaced. I wonder why Micromax is not serious in getting the product replaced if this is indeed an issue with hardware. I have been trying to contact Micromax customer care since yesterday to get my phone replaced early but none of the phone numbers given on their web site is working. My sincere suggest to all of you is to wait for this phone to get tested in the hands of the real users. Please do not rush to buy this phone because there are real issues that Micromax need to sort out. I hope someone from Micromax is reading this and contact me for an immediate replacement of this phone :(

to all micromax lovers
Micromax purchases mobile from china and only rebrands it. Now seeing success of china mobiles through micrmax Chinese companies like UMI, ZTE etc. are directly luanching their phones in India .... Also original manufacturers of A116 have stopped supply to micromax and they are going to sell directly in India .....hence there is shartage of A 116

i had a talk with micromax stores they said it will be available in the stores by 16th march.
So for the new buyers dont go for the online booking cus its better to take from stores rather then w8ing for online shipment.
I have booked it on 19th and still w8ing, my shipment date is still showing 19th march .
