    Hello every one.
    I have noticed that there are a lot of offers on ebay for large quantities of expensive phones going for very little money (eg 20 x 8800's for £1500). They all seem to eminate from other countries : mostly Italy and Germany. Does anyone know what happens if you buy a phone from another country and bring it back to the UK for use.
    I was also wondering why there are no specialist phone importers on the web.
    Is it because foreign phones just wont work over here. ANY HELP APPRECIATED.

    They should work, assuming they are all tri band phones. They could be stolen though, or whatever. That said, I know blocked IMEI's from the UK will work on the Irish networks (not from experience but from what I've been told in work).

    It's a lot of money to risk though...
