Thanks

I've heard some good things about Negri Electronics
http://negrielectronics.com/

Doubt you'll find them in bulk though.

Ebay is a great place, really.

But other than that, finding a bulk wholesaler is going to be a trick. I used to work for a provider here, years ago. It was a small company, and as such, they werent able to buy directly from Moto, Nokia, LG, etc, because they werent buying whole pallets/skids at a time. The company was forced to purchase from middle-men but the purchase agreements were still in the thousands of units range.

Depending on how many phones you need, you may need to network with someone at a major provider to get what your after.

At one time, Amazon sold unlocked units that you could activate with whomever you choose, but I'm not sure these days. They are a major online store-front for most of the phone comanies.

Yea i was looking into amazon, newegg for some deals, just trying to find some competitive prices to compare. The site i hyper-linked above has some good prices, but their stock is not always up to date.

Well right now talking about in the high double digits to low hundreds right
now.


The thing is I am purchasing to ship overseas to other small time businesses where i am from, so the amount depends on what they need.


Thanks for the feedback guys
