      Your comments weren’t being removed, just yesterday I spotted that they were somehow ending up in spam. Anyway, I have fixed it, so this does’t happen again.

    Mi 3 phone was added to my shopping cart this morning and I checked out by
    making a payment of Rs.13999.This amount has been debited successfully to my account, but control did not return to flipkart site. Instead I got a message as flipkart site not
    reachable. Later when I checked, the phone is still in my shopping cart and
    I don’t see this in my order list. This transaction was done using flipkart app through my mobile phone. I wrote to flipkart customer service and No resolution, except a bot sending an auto-response.. so much for being lucky !!!!

    No more sales after this? Why? Only 25,000 units? What a pity.

    Finally the loft clearance seems to be getting over. πŸ˜€ AND wonders of wonders both Xiaomi AND Flipkart seems to have realised the backlash of trying to get cheap bragging rights with the ridiculous ‘Flash’ sales has only got diminished returns for both.
