This business idea will allow many opportunity for expats/short-term visitors/army personnel/additional phone needed/lower-income people to have a wide selection of phone that is available to them.
In Singapore, there will be a good supply of phone that are looking to sell as our mobile contract is usually 2 years and if the phone is maintain well, it should be able to last another 2-3 years at least. Instead of putting the phone in your cupboard, why not sell it off to someone who are more in need of it.

The idea came from a Facebook Post that i post in need of a spare phone for my mother in law – 4 families replied my post and 2 of them have iphone 6 to spare.
This makes me think why do they have such a decent phone but did nothing to it. They are willing to let go for free because it seems like i needed it more than they do and they have no plans for it. I guess eventually our migrate workers in Singapore will need it more than i do. \
Hence this idea was born.
