AUTHORBIO: After selling phones to consumers for ten years, Penelope Stetz decided to write this book, which answers the questions she was asked again and again. She is also the author of The Cell Phone Handbook, a bestseller that offers an in-depth, nontechnical explanation of wireless telephony. Today, Penny operates her consulting firm, PhoneTech Wireless Consultants, and resides in Euclid, Ohio.
AUTHORCOMMENTS: The cell phone store can tell you the current rate plans and latest models of phones. This book will help you decide what's important to you before you get to the store. You will be able to ask and answer questions with assurance, whether you are buying a phone for the first time, or buying a second- or third-generation phone.
Before committing to a carrier, see if it has coverage where you will use your phone. Ask your friends which service they have and how they like it. See if you can borrow a phone to test it, either from a friend or from the carrier. You don¹t want to be locked into a two-year contract only to find out that your phone doesn¹t work in the places that are important to you.
A cheap monthly plan or lots of free minutes won¹t mean anything if your phone doesn¹t work where you need it to. You can buy the fanciest, most expensive phone and still have dropped calls if the carrier¹s coverage is lousy.
