    Hi,


    Please suggest which of the following sentences are correct...

    1) No one has told me that I am giving good service, but I think I am giving good customer service
    OR
    No one has said that I am giving good service, but I think I am giving good customer service

    2) He told me that he will reach here in 5 miutes
    OR
    He said that he will reach here in 5 miutes

    Is there any good sentence to express the same.

    Thanks..
