A lot of people don’t want you to realize this, but you really do have a lot of options when it comes time to get your cell phone cravings satisfied. There’s nothing like having a nice new shiny phone — even if you do have to ultimately sign on to that pesky two year agreement to really get the best deals possible.
If you’re just signing on to a cell phone service as a new customer, you actually do have a lot of options.
First, you need to look online. In the past people used to take the deals offered by those little wireless stops in the mall, but they really don’t always give you the best deal. If you must go to the store and you work with a sales rep, it’s important that you take down their number and get their name. If they’ve made you any type of promise, this is the information you’ll need to claim it. An even better thing to do would be to get it in writing and have it signed by your sales rep in question. Otherwise you might have to fight with reps on the phone to get what you were promise din the first place, and that’s just not pleasant.
Another point that you have to think about is looking around the right time of year. For example, if you get close to Christmas time, you will want to make sure that you think about the type of deals that are available for the season. This is where the Internet comes in handy because you won’t have to drive all over town.
The best deals are definitely going to be on smartphones because they are more popular than regular phones. Carriers know that if they offer you a good deal on the cell phone of your dreams that they will get your loyalty and that means recurring income for them — what a win-win situation, right?
It can be tempting to just bring your old phone into a new network but you would be better off using your new customer status to catch better deals. When it comes to acquiring new customers, the wireless industry definitely has their work cut out for them.
