  1. I bought ZTE AXON A1, but when I am pressing to change the function, the key on the bottom side is not working!
    Also, when I am trying to call somebody it is not working or when I am ringing to my phone it is giving busy signal only!
    I am with Sugar Mobile. ca
    I have been visited a few shops in Toronto to help me with my problem, but all they said that they do not know my phone and can not help me!
    Where I can repair my phone, if you know that I am living in Burlington, Ontario, but Toronto is near by!
