No Love For G-Tide Phones On Facebook

I received a page suggestion yesterday to a not so usual Zimba page on Facebook. One that doesn’t hide it’s feelings for G-Tide. It’s called “I Hate G-TIDE Cell Phones”. First I thought well, negative campaigns are not new on Facebook but I’ll just check it out and leave. But then I looked at the number of fans and stopped a bit.

The page was created yesterday morning (Zim time) and by the time I viewed it in the evening, 51 people had subscribed. I visited it just now to find the fans had doubled to 111!  No mean feat for a Zim page just 2 days old. The viral effect is working against the Tide here!

The page description:

These Phones are not only noisy but not strong and an insult to the Cell Phone World……………if you have a G-Tide cell phone dont take this personal we are not after you.We just dont like your gadget…TOTALLY!!!!:

We don’t know if this is just a disgruntled customer or just someone seriously pissed off with the “noisy” and “not strong” gadgets!

I bet G-Tide Zimbabwe doesn’t know about this. Hey, the guys haven’t even registered the Zimbabwe g-tide domains; evidence they don’t really care much about the internet as a business platform – a big mistake. We did an article on G-Tide last year when they launched their regional office in Harare.

We’ve listed here some posts from the page’s fans:

  1. Its really noisy my maid has it its really noisy i cant stand it . People at G-Tide need to fix the volumes its really bad

  2. But why don’t the owners just turn down the volume? sure it starts to irritate them too after a while, right?

  3. i thought it was just at my workplace but it seems G-tide is the new phone of choice for office orderly staff and general-hands in the whole country. yes, you can now cross off “status symbol” as one of the phones attributes,

  4. G -tide is an insult for sure.I think the Government should barn G-tide in Zimbabwe………………………..

  5. i had the 3GS G-tide for 3 months now and i just can tell u i am proud of having it, i never faced any problem during the last 3 months, and i guess i wont have problem, simply i like it … its not an insult at all having G-Tide

  6. The sales statistics should tell us which brand has a better satisfaction per $ spent. Let’s be factual rather than being imotional

  7. You guyz are shallow. Sure mashaya zvekunyora. This is abuse of internet. Find something productive to do

  8. you people you should understand the status of possessing of a certain phone is a function of how much income one has. Right now thanks to the gtide, many people now own advanced feature phones. these g-tides are here to stay and they have indeed helped a lot of people to share photos, videos. What matters much on phones are the function, the argument that the phone produces so much noise is crazy.

  9. Damn G tide mobile. The most bad moble in this world. just hate it. I have got really big problem with G tide mobile
