It's raining mobiles at Jagdish Market | Hyderabad

There isn’t a better place in Hyderabad than Jagdish Market at Chirag Ali Lane in Abids to pick up a mobile phone. The market is choc-a-block with stores selling cell phones and everything related to it. What began as a hub for watches and electronics is now the single largest mobile phone market in Asia.
 
Phones Galore
 
Where else in the world will you find stores for spectacle frames and lens having a separate counter for mobile phones? All the stores here sell some type of mobile product or offer some mobile-related service regardless of their actual business. That is Jagdish Market for you. Also known as Abids Shopping Centre, you will find both original and fake products here. The place is filled with second-hand cell phones, “box pieces” (new ones) and Chinese phones too.
 
Accessories and Repairs
 
You can pick up Mobile accessories like scratch proof screens, tags and fancy pouches at nominal prices here. The place also has many “unlocking” centres for phones bought outside India and are therefore “locked” to a certain service provider or SIM card. There are a few mobile phone servicing centres where one can get their phones repaired. There is no fixed rate for servicing mobile phones as it depends on the phone’s model and the type of problem. It could be anything ranging from a simple component problem to software hassles.
 
Sale of Seconds
 
You can also sell your old mobile phones here. Most store keepers buy them depending on the phone’s condition. There is a market here for used phones and it is pretty big. Used phones are checked for glitches and undergo servicing before being sold again. Prices depend on brand and condition of the phone.
 
MetroMela’s Tips
  • Visit the market anytime between 10 AM and 9 PM from Monday to Saturday. The market is closed on Sundays and public holidays.
  • Parking is a big hassle especially for cars. So better to go by autorickshaw. Otherwise you will have to park near Little Flower School and walk down. Beware of signs for one ways as they get changed often.
  • Look for “box pieces” (new phones) and get the seal broken in front of you just to be sure of the quality. Ask for a warranty stamp and repair details.
  • For repairs, look for authorised service centres (Sony and Nokia have authorised service centres there). Other places are cheaper but are best avoided unless they are known. Phone cloning, defective parts and overcharging are rampant here so discretion is advised.
  • Ask around at different stores for the best price (it helps) and bargaining is encouraged. Vakil’s offers some good deals and so does Shubham.
  • Do stick to known brands like Sony, Samsung, Nokia, Sagem, Siemens and Motorola. Chinese phones are feature loaded and cheap but have very limited warranty and might not last for more than a year.
  • This is one of the best places to get your mobile loaded with the latest songs, video clips and handy software. Try and get this included in your purchase price.
  • Be careful with your current phone as this is also one of the biggest markets for second hand and stolen phones. Do not be disappointed with low prices you get for your phone in exchange. Trends change too quickly to get more than half the value.

Hmm if u want to check out all the latest mobiles then this is the place tht u have to visit. As now a days the latest chain stores are comepting with one another like Hot spot, Mobile stores, Subhiksha.. and if u want to get the best bargains then just waste ur time checking out on the models and then compare the prices with other stores and now a days u have offers coming up like they offer u goodies, so check out the best deal and buy ur mobile...the best thing abut this store is the varity of mobiles they offer and very pleasant staff.

I bought mobile in Jagadesh market two times, but after comparing the price with univecell or MOBILe store its almost same.. 1)First thing if you wish to go to jagadish market, you must have strong ablity to bargain..and have to check the prices in more than 10 shops then only you will get a better price. 2) If your a busy person and U just want to pick a mobile of ur choice n pay the bill.. Jagadish market is not a good place for U.
