    I am looking to open a wireless store, independent of course. What sort of licenses do i need to acquire and what else do i need to know concerning T-Mobile. Any information would help me. Thanks

    Typically just a local business license and resale permit. There may be state business licenses also.

    First check out your area and see if it's already covered by stores. If it is opening the store might not be a good idea as it will be much tougher to make sales. Stores don't really get different commission scales so it will be hard to compete, it's not like you can lower the plan price. If looks like there is room for you then contact TMobile directly and ask for your area rep and master distributor. They'll give you all the details specific to your market.

    Re: Cingular dealer application

    I could be wrong here, but I think it's rather difficult for an independent dealer to not be exclusive to one provider.

    I think many of the perks given to a dealer require exclusivity.

    Re: Cingular dealer application

    there are 2 kinds of dealers exclusive...he sells for 1 provider only...and non-exclusive... sorta like an insurance agent....the latter is becoming rare these days

    most carriers put activation quotas on these days that make it difficult to fufill if your sales are spread over several providers...radio shack seems to be doing OK tho...
