Question Good service station for Sony Ericssion in Bangalore

Any idea on a good service location for the sony ericssion mobiles? My K750i was dropped today by my kid and its speaker is not working. If I use the speaker phone, i am able to listen to the voice from other side. But if I off the speaker phone,then its dead, I cant listen to person.
Can you please tell me a service place in bangalore? Thanks.

The official ones would do the job just fine. And while you're at it, they will upgrade the software under warranty for free as well.

We've had a coupla good experiences with the delhi ones, had taken w810 there

Here you go... I went to Cunningham street. Its serviced by Accel guys.

I got the phone "serviced" today. I gave it 3 days back and today got it. The lady at the front was so pathetic, just gave the phone and asking to sign received. Thankgod, I tested it. it had same problem that I reported. Then she went around and again same waiting. Then she came back. But this time asking me how much cost "they" told me. I said Rs.280. She started telling "no, that is for service charge only and so how much they said for S.C + component + software upgrade. And software upgrade is 100rs." No one informed me how much is it going to be. Then I was telling them I did not ask for software upgrade. Then she came back & said no I need to pay for all 3. (280+component+100). Then I saw the repair sheet and it said no component replaced. Argued with them. Finally she said all together it is 350. How?
I told "if you have decided to get 350 at any cost, then you can arrive to any calculation and I said I am ready to pay and leave. Then it went on for a while and finally customer (its me ) win.
She just got 280 and done.
Anyway, if you wanna go to the cunningham (Accel info), then better dedicate atleast half-day for this. You need to wait, wait, & wait for giving to service, getting it back and please, please, do keep change. Else another wait for that. I waited for 20 min just to get the change.

I called 2 days and they said, speaker has to be replace and ordered and so I need to wait. Same response for 2 days. But finally turns that no component is changed. Strange!!!! Anyway, its working in the end.

Thanks ajmat for the response.

One man's meat is ...!!! I had a very good experience, like you had for your SE, with the Nokia service guys at Gandhi Bazar: N70 display kaput, repaired in 1 day.

BUT, for my daughter's 2150 it took 10 days, with constant follow-up and dressing-downs, at the Infantry Road (HCL) center. Ditto for a 3650 at the Hosur Road center (again HCL) - where I had gone despite parking problems and all - since I thought the Infantry Road guys were nincompoops.

Funnily, the more feature-packed a phone is, the more the likelihood of failure. You should see the number of Communicators and other high end ones that come for repair! And I have had Alcatel, Siemens and Motorola sets which had never failed for years despite much misuse and lack of care.
