Light In The Box: Wholesale Bargains From China

If you’ve traveled to China and been to an electronics or fashion market there chances are you’ve been struck by two facts:

The touchscreen on this phone isn’t quite as fluid as it is on its Apple counterpart and it doesn’t sync up with a Mac as well. On the other hand the hiPhone has some advantages over the iPhone: it can accommodate two SIM cards at once, it is unlocked (eg. doesn’t require an contracts or specific service providers) and best of all it costs only US$80!

This makes Light In The Box a great source for gifts—it’s easy to select an item you can be certain your giftee doesn’t already have.

    Sure, goods from China are more variable than in local stores. But to get a real high quality product – is not so easy. A lot of factors should be discovered first: who is a manufacturer or supplier, what people speak about that goods (f.e about China mobile phone) and so on.
    After thinking it over – you may get a real HQ item for very attractive price.

    Hi Bridget,

    The phones from Light In The Box will work with any GSM service provider, GSM being the system that virtually every service providers uses . . . except in the U.S.A. and Japan.

    Metro PCS does NOT use GSM so Light In The Box phones won’t work with them. They will work with T-Mobile and AT&T.
