Dealers collecting recycled phones can easily erase data by finding lock codes, SPC or MSL (master subsidy lock) to reset phones. Flashing phones is both an excellent business opportunity and environmentally responsible, helping keep thousands of phones out of landfills. Marketing flashing services Here’s a tip: Wireless Workshop suggests dealers should all be advertising flashing availability at their stores using Craigslist for f ree! According to Chris Fox, president of Wireless Workshop, “Phone flashing has been a huge part of my business for the last 10 years. My Cricket stores advertise phone flashing on Craigslist with excellent results. We flash an average of 3 phones per day and that adds an extra monthly income of $4,000 or more per store to our bottom line. Flashing is growing in popularity because more customers want to save money by keeping their existing smartphones. I recommend that every wireless dealer look into phone flashing, it is easier, faster and more reliable than ever before with Wireless Workshop.” For more information about flashing and Wireless Workshop, visit www.wirelessworkshop.com Article references: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_ Business/2013/db0304/DOC-319250A1.pdf “FCC Chair Genachowski calls for action on cell phone unlocking.” https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/response/its-time-legalizecell phone-unlocking “Whitehouse response” 93
