Of course it is, just depends on the price. I would imagine the cheapest place to get them would be from United States. Just because they're made in Asia doesn't mean they're cheapest there.

Canada is the cheapest for unlocked iPhones. In the USA they are locked to AT&T (GSM) and recently to Verizon (CDMA)

A few days ago I saw a completed deals on eBay of lots of 10 iPhones 4 for $6900. You might want to check them out.
Just go Search and make sure you selected "complete" and then sort by price descending

Haha, from trying to get a contract with an i Phone China supplier to 'who pays the most for their free phone on contract'

On the subject of i phones, so many people sell the i phone, or at least try to get hold of them! That would put me off straight away!

I also think to enter the phone market don't you usually have to have a bit of $$ to start? I heard profit margins on phones can be really low despite their 100-600+ price tags.

Especially when you are not buying directly from the manufacturer. Even if you don't get directly from the manufacturer, a lot of distributors require you to be a VAT registered business as well before doing business with you.

I would say, never expect good deals on small quantites of new mobile phones, especially when buying from China They are likely poor quality or clones.

I think it may be easier to start in the mobile phone refurb market.

Also I also think you may have to be an authorized seller to survive on e Bay.

Can anyone else go into this subject further? I think I'm all out :D

My only input to selling iphones on ebay is dont.

Unless you are VAT registered with ebay and are an approved seller of them and can show your contracts/invoices to paypal which they WILL definatly ask for probably after only a small amount of sales.

Refurb market could also be an option but I could still imagine these being among the hardest products to sell on ebay effectively.

Buy hey if thats what you fancy trying go for it

It would almost certainly draw a lot more attention to your account, small amount of sales across your accounts can be effective if you have a few refurb products to sell, just make sure you know they are genuine phones.

I say this because I have actually had bad experience from buying new phones from China a couple years back, they turned out to be refurbs, refurbished and cloned in China.

I found this out when getting Check Mend info on them, Check Med shown that the phone was a different phone model to the phone I had

The IMEI had been cloned, phone looked and worked all fine, but I was sold ⊗⊗⊗⊗ phones and was not happy

Long time ago, learnt my mistakes now

I don't see why people bother selling Iphones, every man and his dog sells them, and the scrutiny that comes on your account makes it an unworthwhile venture imo.

Agreed sax4.

Look for the unique products for the niche markets would be my advice to make the best money

Except "unique niches" aren't easy to find.
