buy iphones in bulk in the states

i was wondering if anyone knew a way that I could go to the states and buy iphones in bulk from a retailer, like best buy, at&t etc. im sure those stores wont sell me 20 iphones at a time.

any suggestions would be appreciated.

You need ID to buy IPhone down in the States to ensure that you cant do exactly what you are planning no? Or is that only in the Apple store.

All locations will limit you to 3 per credit card number, and will request ID to verify the CC is yours.

okay cool, but they wont require an american ID aslong as I have my canadian driver's licence.
Some stores are more picky than others. Most (however not all) will accept any pieces simply to verify the CC.

Nope.

If you show any signs that your a Canadian citizen, especially at the Apple store, you will be denied an iPhone.

Just go farther away then buffalo and you shouldn't have a problem... the border stores are tough, but it was a very simple process (with no id) to get mine in FLA.

Then again, I think what you are doing is somewhat foolish as by the time you bring them back (likely smuggle, lol) into canada, then you are running close to 500 on an 8gb, and a lot are being sold for like 450... theres really not a HUGE market anymore, and profits seem to be diminishing

I was thinking of doing this too...get 6 keep 1, sell 5 @ $500 each (should sell since its BNIB) which would then get me $2500. This would cover the cost of my iphone and gain me $100 :) ...good idea?

The markets getting smaller and smaller. Nealy everyone who wants one has one.
