Bangkok is a city for shopaholic. It is very easy to find a place to buy a new mobile here. Thousands of shopping malls are waiting for you. But, where is the place in Bangkok to buy a second-hand mobile phone, sell the old one that you do not use it anymore, or fix/ repair your current one???
The most popular place for local is MBK Center. Yes, MBK Center, one of the most well-known shopping malls in Bangkok among tourists.
The mobile zone is located at 4th floor. Where you are there, you will see hundreds of shops selling second-hand mobile and accessories and offering services such as upgrade programs, unlock phones, repair broken screen and so on. Just choose the shop you think it is the best and if it is not, just leave that shop and try another one.
I saw a sign giving shoppers a contact number that they can report unfair, fraud, and deception. I think it is good to have something like this. You can use it in case of need. Anyway, I have never heard any bad experience from my friends who fixing or selling their mobiles at MBK Center before.
Update: January, 2015
Location: MBK Center is located at Pathumwan Intersection. The easiest way to go there is to get off the skytrain (BTS) at National Stadium station. Then, take exit 4. You will see the bridge connect you to the building. Enter the building, that area is Tokyu Department store. You have to walk straight and turn left to enter MBK Center (only 1-2 minutes).
Opening Hours: Everyday, from 10.00-22.00
