Thanks for your question.

If you haven't done so already, I would confirm with AT&T Wireless
exactly what their dealer terms and conditions are. Their contact
information page is here:

If they require that dealers have a physical store, and you don't want
to set one up, then a Web storefront may be a workable alternative.
However, Web stores are quite common, so you may have a lot of
competition. An online storefront usually works best as a supplement
to your face-to-face sales efforts.

For more details about selling online, the Small Business Development
Center has some helpful online business tutorials and FAQs:

Be sure to visit the SBDC Home Page
( for additional small business
advice and services.

Here's one online possibility that might work for you: the "Wireless
Shopping Network". WSN offers to set you up with a free turnkey Web
store if you agree to sell their product line. They are an AT&T
wholesaler and prominently feature an "AT&T Wireless Affiliate
Program" (
WSN's home page is here:

"With the Wireless Shopping Network, you can open a personally
branded, fully stocked, online wireless store in minutes. Wireless
Shopping Network provides the products, website design, marketing
tools, and infrastructure for free."

Request additional details via their online dealer application:

After examining their Web site, call up them up directly and see how
they treat you over the phone (tip: call on a Monday morning when
they're busy). Their contact information is here:

Ask them for the names and Web addresses of several online dealers
that they have currently set up. Contact those dealers directly and
talk to them about their businesses.

Good Luck!

I need someone who is a authorize AT&T dealer are knows someone who's
a dealer to tell me how they obtain the dealership license. There is
some information listed on the AT&T website, but to apply you have to
have parntership setup with IBM,CISCO,and etc. This means you have to
be selling these companies hardware.I don't have a storefront yet. I'm
quite sure there is a easier way to become an AT&T wireless phone
dealer. I called the numbers listed on the website and the reps told
me someone will get back in touch with me, it's been over a week now.
I'm thinking about hiring a lawyer to help me out with this, I'm
fustrated at this point.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to get back to you on this a little
later. Our neighborhood is on the eastern edge of this forest fire,
Colorado's biggest ever:
Hayman Fire 
KUSA News - Denver 
Things don't look good: it's out of control and growing larger by the
minute. We're packing up the cars (PC too) and awaiting an evacuation
No fooling. 
Keep trying AT&T Wireless: ask for the regional sales office and keep
bugging them. I'm sure the other researchers here will pick up the
ball and try to help you out, too.
See you later! (I hope),
