    Are the items actual Nokia or whatever items? Do you ever have complaints from customers who buy say Nokia N95 phones that you got from China?

    Thats my main question. The other question is can you give legit serial #'s to buyers who ask.

    Some are real some aren't, usually fakes sell better and have higher margins just say they are replicas or a special model from from china....go search around dhgate.com

    Always get a single sample first so you can check it right out!

    i wanted to do this via tradetang but all the iphone fakes I found didn't match the real iphone specs. most only had 1gb of storage and some didnt support 3g.

    Hi there ,
    best to be careful - in general if you buy from china then
    a . it could be a fake so you need to be clear that you dont want fakes and even then they try to send them to you-
    b. you need to make sure they arent 2nds or refurbs - i got stung on refurbs ie i got a heap of retunrs as they were simply not any good pretty much held together by string even though they looked brand new
    in this case i suggest you make sure they understand if theres a problem - that they fix and wear the costs of fixing before you buy.otherwise try to get a refund out of them its almost impossible unless you have a seriously good relationship with the supplier

    there are fake nokian95s i used to have them lol so do be careful they are usually exact copy but generally the software wont work near as well and they will have chinese ringtones on them etc- nokias wont have these - also the oncluded chargers etc will be poor quality

    IMO stay away it simply isnt worth the few bucks that they seem to be better priced than buying locally

    just my2c- i

    f yo uwant i can put you onto some good suppliers but they are higher priced than what you will probably be looking at now but at least they sell genuine stuff

    mkenterprise.com - those are the actual real thing I believe. But there's not much margin on them. They're for dropshipping.
