    What does it take to be a retailer who sells windows phones? selling the phones and the service contracts. I have a storefront in a town in NJ. I would like to put a sign in the window saying you can buy you windows phone from me.

    You probably have to acquire a franchise license from AT&T. I don't think they just let people sell AT&T products as some kind of shelf item, you'll have to be totally commited to it (ie. be an AT&T store).

    @Bass:I don't think you are required to go the full AT&T Store route. I know of plenty of stores that have just a few phones and a small amount of advertising space. There is a stereo store in town that also sells AT&T stuff. You would have to use their branding and signage though. I don't know how complicated it is to do that though.

    You just need to get a franchise from one of the carriers (I guess AT&T at this point).

    Is it possible to sell phones that are not carrier branded in the US?

    @ZippyV:It is, it's just expensive. Expansys do for example.
