There are plenty of legit suppliers. I have 2. The problem is, people searching for them don't want to pay legit prices.

Well the iphone 4 is way too hot to make a decent profit, but just like the 3Gs, my supplier will eventually come down. My suppliers are doing 800 for 1-5. I was making 250 - 300ea off the 3gs so the prices will get better.

BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT ANY OFFERS TO SUPPLY IPHONES

We had a lot of problems on the forum about the supply of IPhones. It would be preferable to source them from elsewhere.
PM me with any concerns

Thanks,

$500 - 650. Maybe less, but you would be buying a lot of units.

GB I would answer your PM, but it seems that I have met my quota for the day. Considering that I am a former subscriber, and active member, maybe you can do something about that?

Thanks. I've got an offer $380 for 10 pcs (3 GS 16MB) PayPal accepted.
Do you think it's a scam?

Search, and search, and search.... There are some things I have been looking for--for years and still have not had any luck. There is no magic place that everyone seems to know about but you. It takes determination to sniff out a legit supplier. Especially for something as hot as Apple products.

That's exactly what I'm doing... The more I search, the more I get convinced they are all scammers :(

I'm not looking for magic place, just for suggestions and/tips from people who have more experience than I do.

If an item is so prone to scams, why bother getting into it?

And I ask as gentle as I can because you already asked if an offer to get them for $380 was legit... You are asking for trouble. Again, as gentle as I can, do you really think you are savvy enough to venture into that market? Some things are really best left to the really seasoned and experienced "shopper"

You are basically looking at the hottest and most fraud prone item on the whole planet here. Unless you have been around the smartphone game for several years its a mistake to venture in. Just IMHO

Thanks for the tips, really! And believe me, I DO NOT want to get into this market.

I guess I just tell them NO

In Russia they cost x1.5 times more than in an Apple store.. My boyfriend bought one for his friend In Russia as well and sent it overseas a few months ago..the problem was also the fact that his friend in Russia couldn't get one even for $300 more than the regular price ..but it happened a few months ago...

I think about 90% of all scams is around apple products with cheap prices. Really, I read it so much in wholesale forums.

I was actually looking for US supplier. I don't want to deal with China. Everything is ⊗⊗⊗⊗ there
But there's more than though scammers in US as well. Yesterday one "supplier" wrote me: "Let's do bank wire, this way you could verify my ID with driver license. I'll fax you mine..."

Yeah, right! Like you're going to send me you REAL driver license...

I have read if you want to make money of the phones, the key is to buy in bulk and I mean a lot since the price will be lower. Prices for iphones to buy from a supplier will be more than what would be sold on ebay.
