Buying a cell phone is expensive. With all the features they come with nowadays, it’s a wonder they’re not even more costly. What’s more, business owners will often add in the cost of a second phone for their work line. At Doha Inc., we don’t believe you should have to pay an arm and a leg simply to stay connected to the rest of the world through your smartphone. You can rent a cell phone at an affordable monthly rate that won’t drown you financially.
If you’re new to the idea of renting a cell phone, we have a few things you can look for in a good company to work with.
Excellent customer service
Regardless of how tech savvy you are with your phone, you’re going to need customer service. Whether you need help setting it up on your network or connecting it to your business’ VPN, there’s plenty to get help with. You want to make sure you’re working with a company that has a good customer service record. The last thing you want is to walk away from a conversation with a customer service agent more frustrated than when you initially got on the call.
Read customer reviews to learn about a company before you decide to work with them. Previous customers will give you a lot of insight into what the experience was like for them and what you can expect. Something to keep in mind when reading reviews is the context of what the person is saying. Remember that not everybody is looking for the same thing in a cell phone rental company. For example, they might be bothered by some of the verbiage in a lease agreement, while you prefer to have those specific protections written into the agreement. Consider your own experiences and what you’re looking for when reading customer reviews online.
It’s easy for tech companies to hide fees or conditions in a contract or promotion. For instance, you might be looking at putting $100 down on a lease and then paying a smaller monthly fee for your rental because of a promotion you saw. However, specific conditions must be met to qualify for the deal, and you’re not told about them until you’re nearly through writing up the agreement. Look for a company that’s going to be transparent in its pricing and policies before getting into a rental agreement. It could save you money and trouble in the future.
Everybody has a budget, so don’t feel bad if some tech is out of your price range. That being said, you should be able to find a good company to rent a cell phone from within your price range with a reasonable cell phone. Don’t let a company take advantage of you because you’re in need of a phone. Instead, come in prepared with some research of your own. Make sure you understand a fair monthly price for a cell phone rental to prevent paying too much for a phone that isn’t worth the cost.
Above all else, you want to make sure you’re getting a quality product when you rent a cell phone. You would hate to be dealing with faulty software, old hardware, and have a bad connection every day you have your phone. Read product reviews and get to know the product before you pay to rent it. A one-year lease can feel much longer if you have a phone that doesn’t work well and you constantly have to fight with.
