Beirut’s mobile phones guy

apple-iphone-5

I was recently on the hunt for a new mobile phone and decided to first go check Amhaz prices since they’re known to be among the lowest in the market. Their branch at Beirut Mall was selling the iPhone 5 for a reasonable price at $689 but I got so irritated when the sales guy tried to sell me the A1428 model which doesn’t support our 4G network instead of the A1429, claiming that a software update has resolved the issue and made the A1428 compatible with our network!

So I started searching for another place until @CAbN mentioned a guy called Mohamad selling mobile phone at a similar prices as Amhaz if not lower, and based on several people’s feedback, Mohamad was quite reliable. The guy turned out to have a profile on elmazad.com under the name of “mhdskr” where he maintains a pricelist of all the models he deals with, and the iPhone 5 A1429 was listed for $680 (sealed in its original box), so I immediately called him and agreed to meet up somewhere so I can pick up my phone as he doesn’t operate a shop.

Upon meeting Mohamad I found him to be quite nice and friendly, and never trying to bullshit you with stuff like “khod l A1428 w byimsheh 3a mas2ouliyteh”. He also offers to deliver you the phone wherever you are in Beirut, in addition to granting a 7 day trial period after which you get your money back if the phone turned to have any glitch. So I totally recommend that you contact him in case you’re looking to buy some new mobile.

You may check his pricelist here, and call him on 70 686406 to either agree on a place to meet or simply give him your address to get your phone delivered to you.

    Hey Rami, I actually bought my HTC Desire Z from Mohamed in February 2011! I figured back then that since HTC doesn’t have an official presence, it wouldn’t matter if I bought it from a shop or some guy on the street. And his price was ~200$ cheaper than the shops!

    And as you said, he was friendly, he turned the phone on for the first time in front of me, took off the screen protector, and showed me all the accessories and the in-box warranty (not that it matters here, but hey).

    The phone worked flawlessly for 18 months (even after I rooted it, and switched ROMs and dropped it several times). I got my S3 from a friend who opened his own shop, but I would highly recommend dealing with Mohamed to friends, and I would buy a phone from him again. Oh, and I keep his Elmazad profile in my bookmarks for quick price checks!

    to be honest,i tried http://www.3gleb.com
    with the note 2 and they seem to be a trustworthy website. i ordered online and got a confirmation call directly from the sales woman. they give an official bill with 48 hours warranty on deffects. and they do deliver with aramex. before ordering, i was making sure that they have the cheapest price in the market. it was 15$ lower than any website or shop in lebanon

    I found http://www.electroniyet.com to be really trustworthy. All their prices are well below the market price and they give a 1 year hardware warranty on all their products. I checked 3gleb, but you seem to have to pay extra for that 1 year warranty.

    Old thread… but 3GLeb has been stolen or hacked, the real owners moved to http://www.3GLebanon.com – I bought my iPhone there recently, apparently the board was dead on arrival, luckily the warranty worked and I got a brand new one instead! 🙂
