The customer care and after sales service of micromax are WORST. My Micromax A 106 Unite 2 went out of order just after 4 days of purchase and now it is lying in the service center of micromax for more than last 15 days. I have personally visited their service center at Lucknow 6 times during this period but they have neither repaired the phone nor giving any satisfactory reply. Purchasing a Micromax product will increase your blood pressure. Remember – PURCHASING A MICROMAX PRODUCT IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.
