Shopping in Mexico: Personal experience
As if we did not want to spend time shopping, it was still necessary to do it. On the 1st of May we flew to Havana, and really wanted to give local friends mobile phones. Head (seemingly) reasoning that they did not make sense to drag them from Russia, they decided to buy in Mexico. Oh if we knew that we were waiting!
We arrived in a large shopping center, went around many stores selling mobilies. None on the price tag, where the main characteristics of the phone are indicated, the screen resolution is not specified. And nowhere could show the attached instructions because "Instructions – in the box, box – at the checkout, search will be long". And so everywhere, absolutely everywhere. No knowledgeable specialists and consultants.
In one huge mobile store, we were issued to our question about the resolution of the screen in the queue number five (we have such a system in banks). In the window number five sitting a guy who could answer our question. He just had the Internet where he looked at us. But on the next question, is it possible to buy a mobile phone without a contract, he could not answer, we were offered to take numbers to another window. In general, a bunch of people is attached, everyone work, everything in case. And mobile phone should not buy anyway. Because all of them, although without a contract, are tied to a specific operator. Without such bindings, only Nokia 3310 and it is offered to her. Not bought nothing. And the friends of Cuban presented my iPhone, from which I had long dreamed of getting rid of.
