  2. After updating my marathon m4 the device starts rebooting itself automatically after cutting calls. It is very annoying and there are lot of problems with updating the time. These problems have started after updating the phone OTA… I request gionee to send an update to fix the problem as the service centers have no solution for this problem

    You can contact me at 91-99160-54733
