    cell phone retail dealers

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone, am looking to start up a wireless retail store, I was just wondering if any pinstacker out there owns one or works for one. I need advice on how to start one and if possible how does the whole business work such as; how to get carriers, phone manufactures, pricing, profits, etc. Also if you have links to websites that have information on this. Feel free to pm me or email me. Thanks in advance.

    Found a couple of resources for you:
    http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/a...AgentIndex.jsp
    http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/a...esellerFAQ.jsp
    http://www.gaebler.com/Cell-Phone-Fr...ortunities.htm

    Also, I know there's lots of folks on Pinstack here that work in stores or in the Wireless Industry that would be glad to help you out with some info.

    I could help you get started with Sprint-Nextel.

    Re: cell phone retail dealers

    Thanks for your help guys. My partner and I have a few questions like on Ebay I see a couple of dealers selling $500+ phones for $.99 cents with a 2 year contract? Am assuming they make more of a profit on the contract then they would on selling the phone for a retail price, am I right? Also we want to sell all phone carriers and phones from all manufactures, on a brick and mortar and online just like letstalk.com and wirefly.com. Is this possible? Thanks again guys.
