Buzzing with activity: Jagdish Market, the nerve centre of mobile phone trade is choc-a-block with customers on Wednesday evening. -

Hyderabad: There couldn’t be a better place than Jagdish Market at Chirag Ali Lane to pick up a mobile phone. The market is choc-a-block with stores selling cell phones and everything related to it.

‘Fixed Rate- one price’- screams out a board from one of the stores in the area. However, it does not prevent Praveen and Ashok, both students, from bargaining hard for a mobile phone of Chinese make . On the other hand, there are buyers who walk straight in to a showroom and buy the latest phone.

This is Jagadish Market for you. Also known as Abids Shopping Centre, the place is filled with all kinds of mobile phones- branded and fakes.

“There is something for every kind of buyer here”, says Ali, one of the businessmen. “The place is filled with second-hand cell phones to ‘box pieces’ (new ones) and Chinese phones too.

Moreover, one can pick up accessories like scratch proof screens, tags and fancy pouches for nominal prices.”

The market also has 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. The hitch could be anything from simple component problems to software hassles,” says Ibrahim, a technician.

Moreover, one can also sell their old mobile phones here. Most store keepers buy them depending on the phone’s condition. “There is a market for used phones and it is pretty big”, says a shopkeeper. “Used phones are checked for glitches and undergo a servicing before being sold again and prices depend on brand and condition of the phone,” he adds.

From used mobiles to the new ones, from Chinese makes to mobile servicing, the market is home to mobiles suited for everyone’s budget.
