    Actually the US already has stores like this with all carriers at a one stop shop….. an example in the Northwest is called Cartoys (big retailer).

    Actually, I checked them out and they only offer AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.

    Carphone Warehouse isn’t making any money in the UK, where the market is past 100% saturation, so they asked Best Buy to help them out by suggesting they open third-party dealers under the name Best Buy Mobile.

    The test stores currently open in the Northeast are doing surprisingly well, since most states have specific provisions on who can be a licensed sales dealer, whereas in the Southwest, (especially Texas) you could pick a direction and find third-party retailers for every mobile carrier in the US.

    The intention with Best Buy Mobile is to offer every major carrier in the US as a purchase option with a network of stores offering after sales service and the like backed by Best Buy, even going so far as offering repair services.
