Hi,

I am looking for a solution that will allow me to have an online mobile phone shop with typical mobile phone eshop functionality. The main things are:

- Contracts with details about contract (length, monthly price, number of free minutes, number of free texts etc)
- Be able to associate phone models with contracts (at different prices i.e. on this contract model x is free, on another contract its £20)
- Offline phones
- Contracts without phone
- Be able to support a workflow of select contract then select phones available on that contract

And other typical ecommerce features such as special offers, payment processing, customer accounts etc.

Does Magento support this out of the box or would I need to do some custom development?

Thanks in advance.

Ziad

Dear Zlad,

This would be possible with custom development, we have been investigating this option also.
It would require custom coding of an wrapper that calls the magento functions but outputs mobile phone compatible output (html) to the browser.

It is possible but would take lots of effort, perhaps in the nearby future we consider developing such an feature.
The quickest way i would suggest is placing a job message on one of the freelance jobboards online.

Hi Pascal,

Thanks for your reply however I think you have misunderstood my question. I am not interested in producing output for mobile phones. I want to set up a online store where I sell mobile phones. There are some special requirements for this type of an ecommerce site which I mentioned in the first post. If you could check that post again and have any suggestions for a solution then I’d be very grateful to hear them.

Thanks again.
