I'm starting a new business(mainly auction website) and am thinking about importing some 3G Iphones from US or HK to sell on my website. Don't know wheather you guys would accept it or not. Of course the phones would be cheaper than vodaphone NZ($200+24month plan on atleast $40 a month=$1200) and thats a minimium. Im guessing the cost of parallel importing would be $600-$700(not sure yet :-S) and its not locked onto vodaphone NZ meaning you can use it world wide. Of course the iphones would be properly configured to take advantage of all vodaphone live 3G features etc.
I guess what I am asking is wheather anyone would be interested in this kind of business or not and weather anybody would buy one from me. Of course my main idea is not for importing iphones rather working on my auction website(I'm planning to do better than Trademe...hehe....which charges rediculous fees such as the recent 20cent charge for reserve prices). If anyone has any comments or suggestions or would like to help my business etc please leave a message.(some funding would be great)
