T-Mobile expanded the partnership to include a full wholesale agreement, which has now primed CPD Mobile to expand that deal across the Carolinas.

CPD Mobile Opens First Privately-Branded Mobile Phone Store

Norcross, GA — Wireless wholesale distributor CPD Mobile announced today that customers can now access CPD Mobile quality products and services at 798 Sandtown Road in Marietta, the company’s first exclusive store in greater Atlanta.

“This is a wonderful day for CPD Mobile,” said David K. Lee, CEO of CPD Mobile. “We have worked hard to offer our resellers a line of products and services that are unmatched in the industry. Now customers can find these options in stores right in their own neighborhoods.”

The store opening comes on the heels of a rapidly deepening relationship between CPD Mobile and T-Mobile.

CPD Mobile first signed a master dealer agreement with T-Mobile in June of 2010, through which CPD Mobile was able to provide prepaid service contracts as well as T-Mobile products to the local Atlanta area.

CPD Mobile is currently seeking business owners interested in opening private branded stores. They will be particularly attracted by the turn key “store in a box” offering with no franchise free and low start-up costs.

Lee said customers should expect further announcements of store openings, as plans for expansion will continue in the coming months – including new states.

Current plans for greater Atlanta include at least 12 more points of distribution among local communities within 20 months

Atlanta Welcomes New Regional Handset Wholesaler: Cellphone Depot

Norcross, GA — With businesses under pressure to build smart phone inventories that satisfy buyers searching for the latest technology, local entrepreneur David K. Lee plans to help by offering what most wholesalers don’t: great service and great prices.

Lee has founded Cellphone Depot, a dedicated wireless equipment distributor that caters not only to carrier distribution but also manages the nuances of a small business nemesis: wireless prepaid payment processing.

“This may be the business of ‘make a sale, make a profit,’ but we see our customers in a different light,” said Lee of the company’s full-solution approach. “We focus on the dealer’s profitability and satisfaction long after the final sale.”

Headquartered in Norcross, GA with three employees, Cellphone Depot will distribute both new and refurbished GSM and CDMA handsets for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile manufactured by Samsung, Apple Blackberry, Nokia and LG.

“We sell every manufacturer branded with every carrier to retail cell phone dealers,” said Lee. Cellphone Depot additionally sells to local providers.

A native of New York, Lee relocated to Atlanta as a teenager and later attended Phoenix High School and Georgia Perimeter College. His entrepreneurial eye saw the market developing as he watched pagers and contract wireless phase out and the craze over prepaid wireless and subprime smart phones begin. Lee began distributing cell phones with a master distributor for another MVNO who gave him exclusivity across South Carolina. Four years later, determined to make his own way, Lee founded Cellphone Depot.
